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...

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...

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...

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...

Hi Guys:In my ongoing saga of trying to learn how to cook, I'm planning on giving lobster thermidor a whirl soon. I'd like to pair it with 2-3 wines, mostly as a pairing experiment to see which works best. Any ideas? I was thinking I could potentially combine the dinner with the vintage VS NV champagne combo I've been meaning to do...other ideas... Read More

I am a new wine lover. A year or two ago I was having troubles staying away from 'the sauce'. It wasn't alcoholism, per se, but it was getting to the point where I was spending much of my money and getting very little done. So, being that I am working in a fine dining restaurant, Carnevor Steakhouse in Milwaukee, WI, I decided to begin studying... Read More
Have recently pursued wine for the resveratrol and other nutritional benefits. I currently peruse the red wines in Giant Eagle... but have been to Vino 100 and coffee shops that do wine tastings. Where do you buy your wine? Any ideas for the best deals/place to shop in Columbus, Ohio? Read More
. . . and, boy, are my arms tired.I don't know when I first heard the term "Super Tuscan." I'm guessing that it was 10-12 years ago. I really did not know what it meant--me being very focussed on my California world.I did, of course, learn that a Super Tuscan was a wine that was made from grapes that were outside the Tuscany tradition--specifi...

I'm making a lasagne bolognese for a dinner party (the whole deal from scratch, including pasta) and I want to get an interesting Italian red to pair with it. I'd love to get a Barolo but the cost is a bit prohibitive...I'm like to keep it at about 15 a bottle or less.Also maybe a light Italian white to have with appetizers. Unfortunately I live...

I was going to put this in the Whatcha Drinking Tonight thread. But since there was some Syrah talk going on I thought I'd start a new thread on Cool Climate Syrah.Tonight I'm visiting a wine I haven't had in since May and wanted to see how it is progressing. It comes from high up atop the Yorkville Highlands in the Anderson Valley which is in ... Read More
Following a Wall Street Journal article yesterday, wine sites and blogs are exploding with news that Robert Parker has sold a substantial share of The Wine Advocate to a group of young investors in Singapore. The "game-changing" publication will see some major changes. Do you think these changes will be a good thing or do they risk losing subsc... Read More
I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week. So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent. Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a... Read More
Coming from the rugged Dolomite Mountains along the border of Austria in North Central Italy, Lagrein is the iconic red grape of Italy’s Alto Adige region. In some ways, the wines are similar to Syrah, though perhaps with a more obvious appeal and richer fruit in youth. At their best, these are medium-bodied and quite fresh, yet at the same time...
