My Rating 89. This wine has a more elegant approach to syrah. nose has elegant restrained berry caracter. Taste is dry with fine grained tannins, oak is very subdued, fruit is concentrated but not overpowering. Try it!!
|Winery:||Fattoria il Muro|
|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Chianti|
|Varietal:||Sangiovese , Merlot|
Fine wine: intense and complex to the nose: black and red berry, spicy note.
|Winery:||Domaine des Baumard|
|Region:||France » Loire|
I must admit, this dessert wine had tiny nuances of my favorite dessert wine. The very similarity made it clear that Chaume wine for the value can be a terrific subsitute for other fine dessert wines.

I thought this was a fine dessert wine. This wine was rich and sweet (but not at all cloying) with a slightly oily texture. An exquisite floral character was present with traces of coriander and peach.
|Winery:||José Maria da Fonseca|
|Region:||Portugal » Douro|
Like nothing I've ever smelled before. Dark, fungal, and metallic but with a Red Vines sweetness to it. Medium bodied with high acidity, christmas spice, and blood. Fine powdery tannins. A real interesting wine.
|Varietal:||Merlot , Syrah , Cabernet Sauvignon|
Smooth with wine. Great blend that is smooth with a good finish. Easy to drink alone or with food. Went just fine with a good juicy burger.
|Region:||USA » Texas » Gillespie County » Texas Hill Country|
A well-made wine. The character of the cabernet sauvignon really comes through with great fruit flavor and a fine structure. A steal at under $10.
|Region:||New Zealand » Central Otago|
Little beetroot, quinine, mineral tight nose Round, intense and opulent, layered, fine layered texture, lovely mineral tinged black raspberry, black cherry fruit, this has an innate sweetness, fine length, spicy, rocking wine
|Winery:||Chateau St. Jean Winery & Vineyards|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County|
Tasted April 2010: A very fine effort. The colour is deep. The wine has a wonderful perfume of intense black berry fruit and a soft oakiness, with some elegant spiciness. The taste is marvelous, deep, smooth, rounded and concentrated, with well-integra...
|Region:||Spain » Rioja|
|Varietal:||Tempranillo , Graciano|
A good wine and a great value; a bit low on acidity for my taste but fine tannins, bold drark fruit and a spicy finish make this an enjoyable wine. I recommend it.

Since today is actually the day, we're continuing our celebration of 30 years. The CFO (RBA - Chief Financial Officer, aka the one who works for the bank and deftly handles our finances) and I threw some strip steaks on the grill and roasted some zucc and potatoes. The wine I pulled from the wine fridge was one she brought back from a trip to It... Read More
Glad to see folks are enjoying some different wines. I would like to get my hands on that Windy Oaks Pinot Noir that NG likes; it would be fun to taste it against some of the other Pinot Noirs in our cellar. CFO (Chief Female Officer?) and V V are celebrating their 30 year anniversary? 1984 was a good year if I remember correctly. Congratula... Read More
Is there a "girly" version of the MW, something like "Mistress or Teacher of Wine" or magistra vini maybe (MV)? Just wondering. This is not to denigrate the designation, of course... being an Anglophile I could not do so.We live in the end-times of the amateur it seems - even taste of food cannot be left to the punter.Z.

Happy Granacha Day:I am a lover of fine wines, good music (jazz, the more avante garde the better), and excellent food. And discussion, about great tastes, the larger world, and travel. I am a travel consultant and have actually put together culinary and wine tours. I feel that wine is a great social interloper. Read More
Alesis is the "second" label of Rhys. My understanding is that Rhys bottles wines from their "estate" vineyards under the Rhys label and wines from purchased grapes are bottled under the Alesia label. I also think I read someplace that they are not going to offer any more Alesia bottlings. I am not absolutely sure about the truth of the last ... Read More
I think this is one of RBA's favorite wineries This is another Costco wine, and, I have to say, for $15 it is a winner. It reminds me of a Zin from the 1980s--brambly is the word they always used. Energetic blackberry on entry. Reasonable tannin and acid for body. We're going to have a pasta/sausage dish tonight and this will be just fine.No... Read More
Plum colored in the glass. On the tongue there is an energetic brambly/blackberry hit. Fairly stiff tannin and acid mid-to-back palate. After a few sips I notice that with some cheese I am tasting more sweetness. I like this wine. At the price ( Read More
Ah, another fine Saturday. We're heading out this evening to see a play in the District, but for lunch I decided to open one of the four 2012 Meyer Cabernet Sauvignon bottles I received yesterday (bottle shock not withstanding). Now this is not quite as good as a Silver Oak wine, but it is nice. I can see it improves a bit with air, and I did... Read More
Looking for a best gift for a winelover friend? you should consider a Tastevin. It is available at www.sipcellarwine.com with limited quantity. You can also learn briefly what a Tastevin is. Read More
This nicely behaved Medoc emits some nice blackberry (cassis), black cherry and some cedar bark on the nose, and the colour is deepest red - almost sanguine. Some vanilla notes with a hint of tannin as the wine finishes quite smoothly with slightly wood-laden blackberry. You can keep for several years, but drinking fine now. Decent value. 88 p...
