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 ...

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...

|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 » 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...

|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...

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 ...

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:||Italy » Tuscany » Chianti|
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...

Since dailies aren't usually wines that I store long term--good early drinkers like Barbera, Dolcetto, simpler Chiantis, roses, and whites--they don't actually take much storage space, and rarely in the basement. They aren't going to go bad if the house gets up to 78-80 for a couple days (which is how long it takes to break a "heat wave" with t... 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
Planning to do some exploring into Italy's other wine varietals, those without the fanfare or popularity of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto, etc.First up is a Ruche with a few years bottle age by Montalbera, apparently a lighter wine that was traditionally brought out for special occassions...figure this should make for a nice aperti...

I'm approving this because you were up front about your intentions and seemed to ask our honest opinions. I'm probably a little unclear on a couple things, and since your website isn't functional, I can't look there for answers. $2.50 per bottle per month (your way of expressing it suggests you aren't from the US) is not inexpensive. I recentl... Read More
Please let me know what you think? Is this worth pursuing? Would some of you use this? Read More
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
