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 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...

|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...

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 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...
|Winery:||Chimney Rock Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Napa » Stags Leap District|
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...

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...
|Region:||Portugal » Douro » Porto|
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 ...

Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

Santa was generous this year wasn't he? You guys are better at this than I expected. 2/3 of you already know who your Santa was.

You guys know that I'm always one to push the limits. In fact, I like to grab life by the pu##y.....er....let me rephrase that....I like to enjoy pairing wine with politics and things of this nature. Anyone who knows me might not realize I am better with wine/event pairings than with wine/food pairings. So, with that being said, I need to pai... Read More
Short trip. Will be very busy but not too so to taste the wine. At Boston Logan Aitport. Read More
DM, great stuff there, wish I had more of a mind for history but alas, my left brain dominates and I'm stuck with this engineer's logic thinking instead.So from Georgia we go to Spain. Another country that's seen it's share of different ruling parties, uprisings and upheavals. We visited Alhambre when we were over there in 2013, the great thing... Read More
I guess you were no longer in Belgium Gaillard, maybe it's too late but for those who want to taste the best wine in Belgium ever, I would highly recommend this one : Brouwerij Lindemans Framboise Lambic I don't know also if you've already heard of small firms and cellar who produced great wines in the country but you have to try by going to a w...

Too many redwoods for reliable solar without chopping several down--this is literally a redwood house within a redwood forest, one remarkably dense for being so close in to civilization.That's the problem with some houses in the trees in western Marin and Sonoma. Wet, dark winters, little light. Told OT once about an intervention had to perform ... Read More
Yep, I am putting a wine fridge near my cellar for cooling whites to drinking temperature. Except I'm not actually going to use a wine fridge, I'm going to hijack a dorm fridge and tweak the temp (if that turns out to be necessary) to keep it just a little warmer than a regular fridge, probably 45-48 F. I don't care about humidity control, sin... Read More
I'd use the barrels for parties. They work just fine within that time frame (sherry casks for whisky or brandy fine, too, over much longer time frame). Have had wine served several times that way, indoors, outdoors at private venues, as well as at commercial wine and beer cellar restaurants across Europe. Yeah if you want to drink a barrel over ...
