http://www.spittoon.biz/on_french_wine_and_food.html a bargain for its silky palate, fine structure and berry-led flavours. There is more to the wine than a simple berry-fest though, a fine complexity of spice and thigh-hugging leather makes a recent G...

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.

Opens up with a clear lemony nose. This wine is very fizzy, although the bead is fairly fine. Overall, its a light champagne, with a delicate biscuit flavor. Nice
|Region:||Australia » Victoria » Port Phillip » Yarra Valley|
Full of blackcurrant fruits on the nose, finely oaked on the palate, while releasing rich fruits on the aftertaste. Fine wine.

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.

The wine is a bright ruby in the glass, with very nice clarity. The nose is chock full of ripe red fruit, mulberry, black cherry and plum with some floral notes of violets. The taste is actually quite nice (see we did get the love kind tonight!), with some ripe fruit up front, wild berries and tart cherry that quickly transition to some baking... Read More
Petite Sirah has the stuffing to hold up to extended oak aging. It can also be made in a lighter, fruit-forward, early drinking style. As a result, a survey of current release Petite Sirah from several producers might easily span four or more vintages. The wines selected for you below, all current releases from Northern California, run from 2009... Read More
A little zippy and zesty on the nose. Citrus.Creamy on the palate, fruity but not ostentatious. It reminds me of childhood days with my sister, climbing into fruit trees. The even, fine taste of the wine is appley, a little loquat, with a leafiness in the background. Like the moment you climb into the tree, surrounded by the smell of apples and ... Read More
It's not just the beer, the crocodile hunters and the Great Barrier Reef ... and excitement of Australian fine wine,” Clark said. Furthermore, the respondents' perceptions of Australian reinforce the notion that country of origin plays an important role in how people perceive them, Crouch said. “Country of origin effects are those stereotypi...

Sediment can be a sign, actually, of an aging wine's health, and oldskool winemaking without over-filtering/fining/otherwise-treating to ensure you never see any. This never-sediment treatment can have negative effects on a wine's flavor profile.Also why I recommended you open the wine an hour ahead. If you let it sit in your glass that long and... Read More
So you have one white and three reds, each of different grape content and style.None of them were expensive wines at release, nor the type of wine to gain in value over the years.However, as JD states, if the cellar temp was low and steady and the corks didn't dry out, they could well be fine, interesting, and enjoyable.As DV suggests, make a ni...

The 2002 was holding up just fine. Not real complex but it was a garage wine so needs to be put into perspective. The 2004 was terrific and quite aromatic and as mentioned the '05 shiner was my WOTD. Both made by Thomas Rivers Brown and Mike Smith.John opens an '02 every year for this event kind of as a benchmark for how the vineyard can age. It... Read More
EM, we're about 2 years from retirement, the kids are out of college with good jobs and now is the time for us to enjoy something we both love - travel. Yes, we're lucky (or blessed depending on your beliefs) to have our health and the means. You had me worried for a moment with that reference to LBGP, first thing that came to my mind was not ...
