|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
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 ...
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza » Lujan de Cuyo|
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 ...
|Winery:||Dry Creek Vineyard|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Dry Creek Valley|
|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...
|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...
|Winery:||Bodegas Marques de Caceres|
|Region:||Spain » Rioja|
|Varietal:||Graciano , Tempranillo|
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...

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...
|Region:||USA » California » Mendocino County|
|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
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Knights Valley|
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:||Portugal » Douro|
|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...

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

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...
