A bit of raw wood greets the nose here with oaky spice. On the palate, this shows off a little liquor quality to the transparent black cherry and black currant fruit. Turning a touch creamy on the palate, this remains nicely bright and fresh on the fin...

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...

Smoky, ripe and complex on the nose, with deep earthy, medicinal accents to the candied black fruit and a lovely hint of chocolate liquor and chocolate covered cherry. Electric acids on attack are followed by rich,powerfully dark yet fresh fruit, unfol...

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...

Smells a bit poo-ey, at first with a touch of funk that blows off to reveal dark earthy scents of sandy soil, almost a bit of nasty beach, fudgy, a bit odd and decidedly gamy with lurking floral tones. It’s very supple in the mouth, lovely bright fruit...

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
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...

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...

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
Good timing, Emark, as I will be getting a half case of Ed Sbragia's Gino's Vineyard Zin this week. Ed made one of my favorite wines at Project Zin, which I wrote up a few years ago. Tops in the Zin and PS world by me. Really nice guy, too. Stayed in a room named for his family at the Dry Creek Inn last year, and laughed at the connection.Ok... Read More
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

I'll be in Germany next week, and once I arrive I plan to drag my jet-lagged self to Alsace, France to tour a few wineries there (a couple hours from Frankfurt). BUT- I'm not really into white wines as much as reds, though I don't mind Gewurtzraminer and Dry Riesling.But I am thinking of taking a day off toward the end of the week. I can get pre... Read More
