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...
|Winery:||The Brander Vineyard|
|Region:||USA » California » Santa Barbara|
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:||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:||Argentina » Mendoza » San Rafael|
Had this one with dinner last evening. After getting past the 'barnyard' aromas, the wine was just fine - tight and dry with bright tannins and acidity. Loads of earth and spice and near ripe fruit.
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza » Lujan de Cuyo|
My Rating:90. A full bodied wine that lean with good fine tannin's and a complex aroma. Nose is long and quite complex. This wine is even good after one night in the fridge.
|Region:||USA » California » Napa » Diamond Mountain|
Tasted out of an automatic self service machine. Expressive nose, soft mouthfeel of truffles, flowers, and wild berries. Fine grain tannins resonate on the finish. A more feminine wine, with both subtle and obvious beauty. 94 points.
|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:||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.
|Winery:||Maison Louis Jadot|
|Region:||France » Burgundy » Mâconnais » Pouilly-fuissé|
Although this was the release from the past year, it still had the consistency I have always respected from this very fine French wine.
|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.

MY FIRST VISIT TO BERN'S STEAKHOUSE - Tampa (4/8/2017)Like any true wine geek when I was informed of a trade show in Tampa my first thought was "I'm making reservations at Bern's." I have friends who live in Tampa about 3 min from the restaurant so we hooked up for a fun three top. Rachel came recommended as a Somm so I requested her in advance.... Read More
One of my few discoveries this year has been CA Viognier of all things.As per usual, someone on WB posted the details of the latest Dirty & Rowdy release, and at first glance, it seemed like a release I wouldn't be interested in....then I got to remembering a 2014 Kamen Viognier that a friend opened recently (in India nonetheless), and how surpr...

This received some fairly good reviews and scores and it was recommended to me. For me zins should show blackberry, briary, earthy notes with maybe sage,This really is the opposite - red fruits, some dark cherry are up front. The wine is mellow and not the bold zin that I appreciate most. For it's style it's fine - just not my cup of tea or wi... Read More
Looking for some Barolo well past its dumb period, aged but still hale and hearty, ready to drink now? No danger of selling out before you click your order either... Burlotto + Cordero di MontezemoloIf you were buying wine from the 1960s – 1980s, primarily direct from the producer, and you had plenty of good cellar space, and enough money to spe... Read More
Here's an offer from another vendor on that list. Lots of mouthwatering classics here that are quite hard to find. Bottle prices in some cases are getting up there, others not as much. Many will need TLC considering their age, of course, but this vendor is reliable, and well keyed into the Napa scene. Take a look at this list -- MAYACAMAS, HE... Read More
This wine was a ridiculous bargain. It was originally a $15-20 wine several years ago, and one of my local shops somehow got a case of it that they were selling for $5 a bottle. I might have been concerned that it was over the hill, but the color was great, and it had a fair degree of sediment indicating a wine made with minimal intervention. ... Read More
From Gascony. 50% Tannat/50% Merlot Fairly pedestrian, in my view. ... ... ... than that, it's a fine wine. I don't think I paid very much for this, but I don't think I'm going to look for more, either. &nbs Read More
V V - Thank you for the chart. I guess some white wines are built to stand the test of time. That chart implies it's a snap shot of 2017 and where each wine stands as of this year, right?OT - I couldn't just pour it down the drain. After all, he really has no hand in the day to day operations. But I do understand what you mean.Today we went ... Read More
Riesling could be eclipsing Chardonnay as a go-to white wine grape for wine drinkers. My definition of wine drinkers here includes folks who don’t drink wine on a regular basis, but know a few grapes by name when ordering at a restaurant or picking up a bottle for a special occasion. This says a whole lot about Riesling. Many perfectly fine indi... Read More
