Pinot Noir / $19 Wilamette Valley / Oregon A good friend just returned from Portland, and picked up some Oregon Pinot Noir for us to try. We tasted three wines, all in the $20 range. Only one stood out, and for the $20 price tag, Willamette Valley ...

I really love this wine, and I love the price even more. This was a staple until the 04 vintage ran out at my local wine store. There are plenty of flavor descriptions here for the 04, so I'll just say that I had great luck with this vintage, not jus...

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...

I know this is a very popular wine. I see it at every wine store, and I read about it in one of Snooth's newsletters. The aroma is ripe, fruity, and tangy. The flavor is full and complex, with a tangy, jammy taste over a slightly bitter tannic under...

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...

Deep ruby in the glass. Nice bright berry on the nose--smells delicious! Dark cherry and stone fruit, with a little raisin then on to a nice oakiness. Ends on a fruity note. Very drinkable tempranillo, have had $20 wines not as good as this! Running...

Picked this up at Stone Face Package Liquors Store. Nice little number. Opens with perfume, spice, and vanilla. More viscous mouth feel, almost like diluted honey. Long finish of golden raisin, pepper, and vanilla. I think a bit better than the Taylor ...

Chimney Rock has always been known for great Cabs, and this one is great as well. HOWEVER... I went to Napa and bought this 2001 library vintage and ALSO bought ZD Vineyard's 2001 Estate Cab. I paid ~$20 less for the ZD. Both were bought untasted, s...

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 have the 2013 version. Way better than I expected, for a bottle under $7 in price at my local grocery store wine section. Best at cellar temperature, definitely. A little austere, i.e. not too bold and fruity, and that pleases me very well. Though not as stridently so as a great Bordeaux, which are my favorite wines. Just a good wine to have o... Read More
Put all the wine at the bottom of your refrigerator? Pull as needed and allow to warm-up a bit before drinking.....Leave them out at room temp which would be 74-75 degrees for me? And give them a quick 15 min cooling before drinking..... 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...

I've been really bad about posting updates on the house. Structurally, we are finished, and all the walls are painted and floors finished. We have stairs, about to have our big Tansu thing in the middle of them, And we've got a dining room that seats twenty pretty easily. Maybe more. (Didn't OT say all that garden building was making him lose ... 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 could hear The Good Wife in the other room as I posted. I can't really watch episodic television. I get too restless. But I know it has a following on here.I was going to post multiple pictures, but none of the others came out well, posting them was turning into a chore (gotta clean up my phone's camera roll) and I lazily did not go back and...

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
Hi everybody, haven´t posted for a while... too busy drinking wine.Anyway, I have a trip to the Loire Valley coming up in July. We will stay 4 nights in Saumure and 2 nights in Sancerre. Anybody has ideas of which winemakers to visit? I like Pinots, Sauvignon Blanc, some Cabernet Franc and wouldn´t mind visiting a good Cremant maker. Anybody bee... Read More
Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More
Pretty good Lucha, 52. You don't have a forced-air furnace in the basement? Or is it well away from these last photos. What does the temperature of that closet reach in summer? My crawlspace was 55 in winter and got up to 63 in summer. A fair spread, but not terrible. I now have all my wine in a big fridge. I only have a little over 100 bo... Read More
