|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.

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

Time to give this thread another kickstart.I posted way back on having a bottle of this before but I'll put up another note since this was a different wine/winery. I've found some killer reds from Sicily and I'll add this Feudi del Pisciotto Frappato to that list. Medium bodied with some really nice red and black cherry components. There are so... Read More
One can be cynical in many things, but not about Pomerol;this fine property ... ... and soft finish. A very fine wine. 9 Read More
An excellent NV Champagne Classique, with a slightly neutral nose, but with a certain citric aspect. Amazing electricity on the palate, with good acidity one associates with a decent Champagne. Lemon oil, and a snappy white fruit (wild) envelope on the palate. A very fine, cold climate wine. 92 points. Read More
I don't know about that Fox but you're right, I was interested in the poster's version.RCKR - Bikavér is produced in both Eger and Szeksárd. Liszt, who was Hungarian, used to drink the Szeksárd version and there's a producer there now who is making a version in honor of Liszt. It's pretty good too. Egri just means from Eger. IMO, the Szeksárd ve... Read More
