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.

Another fine wine from Brander. Off-dry Sauvignon Blanc blended with Riesling, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Gris. Floral on the nose, nice tropical fruit in the mouth. Excellent summer picnic wine.
|Winery:||Louis M. Martini Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Napa » St. Helena|
My Rating: 90. This wine is elegant with restrained fruit aromas . Fine grained tannins. Nose is smooth and long. It grows on you. At Costco Michigan I paid $ 11. Good deal
|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:||Dancing Hares Vineyard|
|Region:||USA » California » Napa|
Outstanding! Big, Bold, multi structured, and evenly balanced. beautiful color and a wonderful bouquet that seduces the palate. This is a wonderful wine from start to finish, and an example of fine craftsmanship. Cheers!
|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.
|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:||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:||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.

This is the first taste for me of the 2009 Fontenil (it has been lying patiently in the cellar for about 3 years). This is a deep, Merlot-red wine with a fragrance of fine Kirsch and wet sphagnum. There is white pepper (light) with bright cherry (poss...

Have started to see the appeal in Champagne and other quality sparkling wine more and more lately. It's a festive drink with high drinkability and pleasure, provided you are drinking within the wine's general drinking window. I can remember my eldery godmother saying on one of our visits that she couldn't drink wine anymore due to her stomach is... Read More
Hey, the Mexicans are impatient, too, OT. Sounds to me like that wine's mostly meant for someone who must have something, anything red following an appetizer course with a cerveza and a shot of tequila. Might be best to use in sangria, though, judging by Mark's report. Carne asada with that sangria after a couple of shots and some guac--maybe it... Read More

As wine lovers who among us doesn't enjoy doing horizontal tastings of wines from a single vineyard? That would probably be none of us yet the opportunity to do this doesn't surface very often. I remember doing a Limerick Lane Zinfandel horizontal last year with 6 takes on the same fruit. Other than that I'm at a loss. It's a great opportunity t... Read More
This is the first taste for me of the 2009 Fontenil (it has been lying patiently in the cellar for about 3 years). This is a deep, Merlot-red wine with a fragrance of fine Kirsch and wet sphagnum. There is white pepper (light) with bright cherry (possibly ripe cranberry sans acidity) and racy tannin on the finish. A very fine Fronsac. 91 points. Read More
Finally, an affordable, bold, oak-infused Chardonnay worthy of fine food pairings! I find that when Chardonnay is aged in stainless steel it imparts a sterile, acidic quality that makes the wine less memorable. Allowing the Chardonnay grapes to age in oak, as here, lends complexity and resonance to the wine. Read More
Had Foxall and family over last night. Heard E-Mark hosted as well, so please post if you're up for it Mark!Kind of an abbreviated visit, but I'm glad they were able to stop by. I made sure to keep the wine flowing, which we maybe finished half of the 5 bottles opened.Pierre Joet Rose NV: This showed real nice and crisp. Seemed just what the doc... Read More
Hello Duncan -Yes; in fact, the first bottle has been decanted for close to a week, now. Facetiously, the precipitate remaining in the bottle was sufficient to make jam. Tried it last night to discover that although the wine particulates are evenly distributed in the decanter, the wine in the mouth gives me a sensation of a separation as thoug... Read More
I find my 1995 Madiran a bit dry/tart for my taste and am considering blending the remaining four bottles with a Cabernet. Any objections? Suggestions? March 25, 2016 Read More
