|Region:||Spain » Catalunya|
Think berries flavour yet not too jammy, and with fine oak underlying. Quite a good 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.
|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.
|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...
|Winery:||Crane Lake Cellars|
|Region:||USA » California » Lake|
This was quite a pleasant fine. A robust dark fruity wine with strong hints of licorice in the nose and on the tongue.
|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.
|Winery:||Château de Blomac|
|Region:||France » Languedoc-roussillon » Languedoc » Minervois|
|Varietal:||Syrah , Carignan , Grenache|
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...
|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.
|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
|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.

The food and wine / beer / wine was great. I didn't over-eat and feel fine this morning; now getting ready for our yoga class. It was an exciting game. Read More
Chateau Angludet never seem seems to disappoint; the 2011 (a slightly sub-par vintage) has produced a very fine-very Margaux expressing well this southern commune of Medoc. The wine is now quite mature; tannin is soft, indicating a life of about 1-3 years before no further improvement can be expected. Nose is herbal with blackberry dominant; en... Read More
Had this 2012 Bougetz Eminence CS yesterday. I purchased this during WB's Day 2016. This wine is a good example of a wine that strikes a good balance between old and new world. Beuatiful nose from the beginning. Red/blue fruit, medium body as it glides accross the mid-palate, I pick-up good acidity with some herbs, hint of spice and oak, fine/so... Read More
OT - Ok, I'm making it personal. Here is my current allocation of fine spirits. You know I have too many wines to post pictures of. Read More
Yes, I do like Prosecco; its friendly, approachable kind of conviviality (with a touch of edginess) reminds me of Italian landsmen. This Prosecco, however, coming as it does from the Valdobbiadene Classico region and full of dry citric flavour on the palate and lemon oil (yes, the cleaner) on the nose with plenty of effervescence - is very fine ...

Pinot Noir is most assuredly a fashion item, although it's been around for as long as there's been wine in California.Agoston Haraszthy planted it in the 1800s. Neibaum too. In the 1900s, Martin Ray and Martini planted it and Tchelistcheff made what was supposed to be a legendary PN in 1946 for Beaulieu Vineyards.All of them tried to make someth... Read More
I was wondering how many forum members plan to watch the Superbowl this Sunday (05 Feb 2017) and of that subset, will anyone be drinking beer instead of wine? Read More

There is another reason for writing TN's that I didn't read (Maybe I missed it.). I was with a place (It is no longer around.) in the early 2000's until about 2008 - 2300 reviews that I lost when they just shutdown, RRecently another place that I had about 1900 reviews decided to close up shop and concentrate solely on their business side.I had...

Let's break it down.1. Most people are bad writers.2. People who write about wine are a subset of most people.3. It is unlikely that only the best writers are interested in wine.4. Therefore, people who write about wine must include many bad writers.Now, what is the point of tasting notes? Some possibilities:1. To say "look at what I am drinking... Read More
