|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon , Merlot , Petit Verdot , Malbec , Cabernet Franc|
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...

I write this review in seeing the wine at its current price of under $15... which is, frankly, an insane deal. This is not a "light bodied" malbec blend but more akin to an old fashioned Bordeaux blend in its style, composition, and weight. I poured ...

|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma Valley|
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...

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...

|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 --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 ...

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...

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...

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

While going through my grandmother's basement, we found 2 cases of wine. The first, 1978 Liebfraumilch Qualitatswein (with black pieces floating in it and an internet search that deemed it garbage even when bottled), and the second, Paul Masson Monterey County Chardonnay 1978 (Second Bottling). I've not been able to find anything out about the l... Read More
I'm looking for two wine suggestions for a dinner soon. First off, I'm looking to pair a bottle of red wine with a first course mi-cuit foie gras and second course pheasant, dauphine potato, chicory and parsnip. Hoping you guys have a good suggestion from my options. If none of the options are especially well-suited, what would you recommend? My... Read More
Started the weekend with salmon bake on the grill (It's 15degf here so it was a task not to be taken lightly. decided on pinots to celebrate helping the closing liquor/wine outlet of a couple of cases of wine at 50% off. Never had either so what the hell:Entry level - didn't expect much and that's what I got.Much better but not overbearing. r... Read More
I drink more (fino) sherry as an aperitif than any other type. Have no problem with PX on good vanilla ice cream, though. :-) Drink more madeira, port, botrytised german, sauternes/barsac and tokaji (perhaps in that order) than sherry for dessert. Sweet sherry, marsala, vin santo, Canadian icewine, Banyuls, etc. all fall into the 'other' categ... Read More
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...
