Focused On Wine
Crisp and hard on the nose with orchard fruits and smoky oak in a linear, focused style. Bright and focused in the mouth with a really precise feel. This shows lovely finesse and balance and, while the oak is obvious, it is balanced by clear, transpare...
|Region:||Spain » Castilla y León » Ribera Del Duero|
Dark violet, blueberry and earthy black plummy fruit greets the nose along with streaks of licorice and medicinal spice. Tight, focused and just a bit tart on entry, this open nicely on the palate featuring soft, almost plush fruit underpinned with fir...
|Region:||Italy » Trebbiano d'Abruzzo|
This smells more like a red wine than a white. There are just layers and layers of complex aromatics, dry earth and almond shells to start off then a bit of mint and a fleshy veal tone before subtle orange blossom notes pop and a huge wave of green tea...

this is truly a salmon wine as they insist on the label. but the trick is to have the sips first and then the bites of salmon. it really brings out the creaminess of medium-rare salmon. great focused acidity that lingers on the long finish. it also has...
|Region:||Switzerland » Thurgau|
Intensely aromatic on the nose with huge aromas of slightly jammy golden currants deftly framed by notes of slate, white pepper, tarragon, and quinine. Spicy and sweet though ever so slightly on entry, the palate here is draped with dusty mineral note...
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Dry Creek Valley|
This explodes from the glass with lead pencil, vanilla oak, toasted spices, freshly turned earth and spicy black fruit. On the palate it’s certainly a big wine but really well balanced with fresh black cherry, black currant and black berry fruit tones ...
|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
Soft nose, a bit of herbal sweetness, a bit herbal, even a touch rhubarby, soil, mineral, very focused and clear, rather soft on entry, nice unfettered wine, clear, herbal notes, small but precise wild cherry fruit, a touch of savory dried meats and in...
|Region:||Germany » Mosel » Wehlener Sonnenuhr|
Dusty on the nose with faint hints of waxy apricot fruit over citrus and apple aromas. A lovely blend of sweetness and vibrant acidity pops on entry, delivering peach fruit drenched in lime flavors and edged with a nice mineral cut. Perhaps just a bit ...
|Winery:||Mas des Bressades|
|Region:||France » Rhône » Costières-de-nîmes|
Cuvée Tradition Rosé 2009, a brilliant cranberry hue, aromas of cherry pit and rubbarb, bright flavors of red fruits with a dash of red pepper flake, great acid focused on a lingering finish. Great Summer Wine!
|Region:||New Zealand » Marlborough » Wairau Valley|
Sharp on the nose with a cheesy, lightly mesquite-y nose that adds a skunky edge to the core of sweet green fruits. Bright and citrussy on entry with a nice ripe feel that highlights the lightly fleshy nature of this wine. On the mid-palate this is sur...

Emark, we were told today that Alsatian wines are 100% of the grape variety on the label, none of this 75% stuff here. Edelzwicker is a white blend which can be any combo of whites.We had a great time in Ribeauville today. One thing that really struck me on the bus ride from Colmar was the vastness of the vineyards. It's hard to convey in a pict... Read More
I'm starting this thread in order to drop a few notes and pics of the wine related portions of our Alsace trip. We're here with two other couples and although we have consumed a fair amount only a small portion of this trip is centered on wine. The first problem we encountered was the lack of rental cars due to the railway workers strike. We hir... Read More
Fox - absolutely I couldn't tell you one Bordeaux from another blind or one Barolo from another, although in the latter case I'd take a shot if you told me what my choices were. It's all about where you've focused your attention and how many times you've rung the same bell in your head. That is actually why I like blind tasting - it makes you fo... Read More

A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak. I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines... Read More
Those who know Riesling intimately, and drink it often, can argue that the top Rieslings are some of the greatest white wines in the world. It is interesting to think about its greatness in comparison to another top white variety – Chardonnay. Chardonnay is a chameleon, having a great affinity for expressing winemaking techniques and terroir whi... Read More
California Chardonnay has gone through a transformation over the years. It was the Judgement of Paris in 1976 that put it on the map as a serious wine that could rival Burgundy producers who'd been making wine for centuries. But during the 1990's, a lot of experimentation in the California wine market took place. The ideologies wanted to reflect... Read More
