Liquor Store I the
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:||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...

|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...

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...

I consistantly enjoy Layer Cake Malbec, it has the soothing taste that agrees with my wine palate. The dark fruit taste is deep, the chocolate overtones and the long smooth ending with just a subtle tannin risidual feeling on the inside of the mouth an...

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...

Get carded frequently going into clubs in Japan, where they just need to see you have photo ID of some sort before you go in, regardless of age, in case of some incident later. Strangely enough, up through last decade never happened in the States, though can't speak for this decade. Never in Europe.Other than that, have been buying in liquor sto... Read More
Have you discovered the joys of sipping your rum neat, or are you only mixing it into cocktails? Both are certainly delicious ways to enjoy rum. However if you’re not yet familiar with expressions that can be sipped much like one would scotch you’re missing out. I recently returned from spending some time in Venezuela visiting Diplomático, one o... Read More
OK, since composing the above, I’ve done some on-line research and it appears that U.S. Treasury Department’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) is responsible for enforcement in the U.S.Notice at the top of this web page that there is a solicitation to report fraud.However, notice a bit farther down the page the bullet Market-based ...

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...

"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
Which Cab Sav's are REALLY good right of the bat (upon release from the winery) and even better after 5 years? Read More
I live in a relatively small condo Dave, I have a liquor cupboard with a couple cases of my lesser wines sitting passively. Maybe I should take the whole thing out and put in a small active cellar...it's about 8 feet high and two feet wide. Read More
Most of you know my taster prefers a nice Malbec. Well I have since graduated to many other varietals in the past 2 years. Cabs if course, Old Vine Zins, Oregon Pinot Noirs (the heavy ones), Sauvignon Blanc's from NZ, and some tasty Chards.Well the other day I noticed Layer Cake Cabernet Sauvignon, and wow being as I love Layer Cake Malbec (yum ...

That 'most livable' moniker about Vancouver has always cracked me up. Suicide rates, junky rates, rainy-day rates, affluent 'immigrant' (former 'communist block', etc. over the past 20 years particularly) influx driving up real estate prices beyond local reach, etc., etc. Seems certain statistics are being ignored in that kind of chamber-of-comm...

Thanks for taking the time to check it out. I know it's probably dull and irrelevant to most of you guys.Where I was going with this is that it's already effected my local BC Wine shop. It's about five minutes drive away and loaded with great stuff that you would ordinarily have to go to the wineries to get. They do great tastings on the week... Read More
