Smoky, deep and layered on the nose with dried floral, dried herb and vanilla tones accenting the mulberry and plum fruit. There is an underlay of dirt and high toast wood as well and that gained through the course of the evening turning a bit too gree...

The 2008 vintage has reached it's "expiration date". I got this for 75% off at a local liquor store since it expired about a month ago, which means I paid a mere $6 for 4 bottles worth of wine. I was unaware that box wines actually had expiration dat...

AWE blind tasting --chewing gum and candy apple, wild strawberry in liquor, gains some focus with a touch of gaminess in the background, still a little jammy, light and fresh in the mouth, this feels pretty good with a lean, transparent character, low ...

What a pleasant surprise from a winery I pretty much have learned to dismiss. What I don't like about Beringer is the amount of production they release! They scare me when their wines are available from Rite Aid to your local "booze hound" liquor store...

|Varietal:||Chardonnay , Pinot Noir|
Light floral nose. Delicate yeast, buscuit and dried petals. Tart dry finish of gooseberries and quince. Very good value. Worked well as a Kir Royale style cocktail with Domaine de Canton's ginger liquor
|Winery:||Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi|
|Region:||USA » California|
Some black cherry, pepper, a little earthy on the nose. A little light on the palate at first but opens up with a little time to breathe. Some notes of cherry come through on the palate again, but this is not a fruit forward wine. There's just enoug...

AWE blind tasting - sweet herbal, sweet wood, sweet floral, nice bit of soil, touch of meat, a touch of watermelon liquor, raspberry liquor, sandlewood, nice slightly chewy feel, easy and well balanced, very drinkable, engaging if lacking just a touch ...

Bodegas Frutos Villar, Toro, "Muruve", Crianza, 2006 Production background: 12 months oak, 12 months in bottle. 100% Tempranillo, Toro region, Spain. I gave it "4 stars" over there for its value in particular, along with an overall, "Parker-esque" r...
Very good. Light, simple, crisp, green appley. Would add a bit of flavored vodka to kick it up, good wine for adding some liquor to for a cocktail.

|Varietal:||Touriga Nacional , Touriga Franca|
I know what you're thinking: A rose port? But this little gem will change the way you think about fortified wines. This lovely pink port wine is amazing is suprisingly fresh. It has a fruity, floral aroma, a silky texture, and tastes of cherry & raspb...

This morning I was pontificating in the coffee shop about wine bottle labeling. My buddy, being the the ex-lawyer type, asked a lawyer question. Who monitors this stuff?I then realized that I had never heard of anybody (OK, I'm talking domestically, here.) being accused of say:Labeling a bottle as "Cabernet Sauvignon" and, then, being caught f...

Had a 2012 Myriad Cab-Three Twins Vineyard.... Weird name......Very good and drinker well NOW! Lots of blackfruit and currant liquor on the nose. (Not the most powerful nose of MS's portfolio but pretty good.) Blackberry, blackcherry and a touch of spice on entry and it carries tot he mid-palate. Excellent balance of fruit, acidity and fine tan... Read More
"I think to limit the conversation to just Cali cabs is to narrow."But that was the question posed by the OP." Now I'm really confused. Where in the OP was California specified?I think it's patently absurd to talk about 'Cab Sav' (the ultimate Americanization--where'd the 'u' go?) without reference to Bordeaux, and other New World sites. I also ... Read More

Hey, there's plenty of good wine in Hawaii:Maui Blanc!Tedeschi's stuff elsewhere I've spent a lot of time in Hawaii over the years. Had Tedeschi's pineapple wine a few times and it usually hit the spot . ;-) Then I moved on to pina coladas or maitais. ;-) ;-) Oh, and the stuff tends to taste better in that Hawaiian ambiance than other envi...

Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

I've mentioned elsewhere my aversion to flashy wine storage areas. I've mentioned the extensive renovations we've recently undergone that will enable us to survive three more years of having two teen girls, while making our abode a welcoming stopover for people as tall as GregT and as numerous as JD and his family. (We draw the line at families... Read More
Good timing, Emark, as I will be getting a half case of Ed Sbragia's Gino's Vineyard Zin this week. Ed made one of my favorite wines at Project Zin, which I wrote up a few years ago. Tops in the Zin and PS world by me. Really nice guy, too. Stayed in a room named for his family at the Dry Creek Inn last year, and laughed at the connection.Ok... Read More
Yeah, JD, tart is good. As I said above, there is an art to getting the right balance.Vino, nobody said dodgy backroom stuff. Just always buy and use 100% agave. Be sure that's on the label. Then you can start experimenting to find the flavors of the different labels you might like best. That being said I think it's a waste of good sipping liquo... Read More
