Fine Wine and Liquor
What a pleasant surprise from a winery I pretty much have learned to dismiss. What I don't like about Beringer is the amount of production they release! They scare me when their wines are available from Rite Aid to your local "booze hound" liquor store...
|Region:||France » Champagne|
This is a difficult call: the wine has all the markings of a fine Champagne with excellent effervescence (lengthy and continuous, I mean), brioche nose and buttered toast on both palate and olfactory bulb(s). I acquired this wine at a considerable dis...

Carob, cola, herb, freshly sawn oak and earth all pop on the rather intense nose that features dried raspberry fruit. Bright and crisp one entry with lovely earthy and slightly vegetal nuances up front followed by a nice raspberry and mulberry midpala...

|Varietal:||Touriga Nacional , Touriga Franca|
I know what you're thinking: A rose port? But this little gem will change the way you think about fortified wines. This lovely pink port wine is amazing is suprisingly fresh. It has a fruity, floral aroma, a silky texture, and tastes of cherry & raspb...

Bodegas Frutos Villar, Toro, "Muruve", Crianza, 2006 Production background: 12 months oak, 12 months in bottle. 100% Tempranillo, Toro region, Spain. I gave it "4 stars" over there for its value in particular, along with an overall, "Parker-esque" r...

Which Cab Sav's are REALLY good right of the bat (upon release from the winery) and even better after 5 years? Read More
I've mentioned elsewhere my aversion to flashy wine storage areas. I've mentioned the extensive renovations we've recently undergone that will enable us to survive three more years of having two teen girls, while making our abode a welcoming stopover for people as tall as GregT and as numerous as JD and his family. (We draw the line at families... Read More
I'll be in Germany next week, and once I arrive I plan to drag my jet-lagged self to Alsace, France to tour a few wineries there (a couple hours from Frankfurt). BUT- I'm not really into white wines as much as reds, though I don't mind Gewurtzraminer and Dry Riesling.But I am thinking of taking a day off toward the end of the week. I can get pre... Read More
Hello wine lovers. Im a newby. I find that I love a Mendoza Malbec like its oxygen and Nineteen Crimes cab is to die for ( althouth not in the way some of the criminals may have in route to australia) . I also am enjoying some less complex but well balanced red blends like Apothic. My favorite malbec so far is Alamos and Cigar Box is pretty nic... Read More
Thailand is a tough place for wine. According to an article in the Phuket Gazette, the country's small wine-drinking community remains so because of limited production and high taxes which make premium wine prices too high for the average wallet. “While there is a perceived demand in Thailand for the fermented grape, the industry is also metapho...

Texas is not known to be a particularly forward wine state. We have only allowed wine to be shipped from out of state to private addresses in the last couple of years.

A trio of Chinese winemakers shared their insights about this question with CNN reporter Kristie Lu Stout during a roundtable discussion at a Chinese winery this past month. Community is an important factor in the wine drinking experience, Ruby Red Fine Wine founder Simon Zhou said during the ... Read More
I don't know if anyone else here has a taste for Calvados, but to me it's great stuff and a favorite, ever since I first ran into it at a working class zinc bar in Paris as the shot accompaniment to a demi tasse. Soon graduated to the better stuff, drunk after dinner most frequently, but even as an aperitif (and an accompaniment to oysters as I ... Read More
My family moved to California when I was 3 1/2. The wine industry was nascent, or the fine wine business was. We drank small glasses of beer with tacos, burgers and pizza on weekends, even as kids. My mother cannot remember a time when I did not like beer. On Sundays, we had wine with our dinner (eaten in the traditional afternoon slot, foll... Read More
