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...

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...
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.

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 ...

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...

Got this at a "take a chance" sale at a local liquor store for $3. I scored on this one. velvety nose with a little earth and chocolate. Good fruit on the palate. Dangerously smooth wine with a nice grip on the long finish. For $3 a bottle I shoul...

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 ...

A little hot on the nose at first but after letting it stand for 20 minutes in the glass it shows an earthy, leathery nose with a touch gaminess. Very smooth on the palate with nice acidity and a good amount of tannin. Tempranillo shines through with...

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...

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

SS, way to give yourself away!I think the OP really just wanted to find a way ... ... in an awesome place with good liquor laws, and what a good wine club could do. California is one of those places with both shops and liquor laws that are favorable for the most part, whereas Boston and environs, where I went to my last two years of high scho... Read More
So several years ago while touring the CA wine country I came across a nice place where I liked both the proprieters and the wine. I signed up for their monthly wine club. A month later instead of getting my wine I get a notice that they can't ship to MA. Somehow I remained on their mailing list and now they can ship to MA so I ordered my very f... Read More
My last place before this one was one of those modern industrial loft-type designs. Lived there quite awhile. Stairs up to the loft bedroom allowed lots of storage underneath. Had some built-ins there for wine and liquor as well as cookbooks and some art and the like. Convenient, attractive, but not a place to store for the longterm the way I ha... Read More
Hello everyone, I am relatively new to wine collecting and I'd like to establish a storage area in my house to store and age wine.I have a unique space in my house that would be really cool to convert to a "wine cellar", but I'm not sure how to prepare it. It is a space under my stairs, that is built out as a small storage room. My kids have use... Read More
Looking good, Duncan. Bottles all shiny and in good condition. Isn't it fun going to pick bottles up after an auction, whether at an established site, estate sale or whatever? Much more fun than just buying at a liquor store. Somehow feels a little like Christmas morning.Let us know how the bottles drink, please. Read More
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
