Very fresh and complex on the nose with complex notes of dried citrus zest, chalk, smoke, mineral and slightly balsamic tones. In the mouth this medium weight wine shows a certain sense of restraint but offers up layers of dried orchard fruits and exot...

Sweet citrus tones and a slightly buttery note great the nose. This has a distinct Fruitstripes gum note on the nose, combining orchard and tropical fruit characters. Soft and round in the mouth with a milky creaminess upfront and enough acidity to ke...

Stony, dusty, and slightly gamy on the nose with pear skin and old wood aromas. Simple and straightforward on entry, showing lovely purity of fruit, in a clean, fresh, and modestly complex style. There is a fine lying autolytic floral and softly Brie l...
|Region:||Italy » Alto Adige|
Rich and a bit of woodsy at first then turning sweet and lightly floral on the nose with hints of pineapple and honeycomb. Wow, if this isn’t rich and elegant in the mouth, it really flows softly across the palate with flavors that are very fresh and p...

|Region:||New Zealand » Wairarapa » Martinborough|
Wild yeast and old barrel nose with a bit of almond and rich, toasty aromas layered over smoky, earthy dried orchard fruits. This is rich and powerful in the mouth but remains fresh with a fine acid backbone. The flavors are decidedly old school. The f...

Clean and fresh on the nose with almond lotion tones under crisp pear and lime fruit. This is lightweight and fresh on the palate with a finely integrated yet zesty vein of acidity. The flavors run to the crisp, white orchard fruit end of the spectrum-...

Just a classic Sauvignon Blanc. Lovely texture, slippery almost yet light and fresh with acid driven flavors of grapefruit and gooseberry with a touch of orchard fruits on the nose. This has a subtle complexity that will satisfy the most discriminating...

Fresh and clean on the nose though you have to wait for some sulfur to blow. Once it does, there are lovely notes of pithy citrus and white orchard fruits that are well defined and framed with nuanced hickory and oak notes. Fresh on the palate if a tou...

We talked a lot about sparkling wine last week but there is a lot more to cover. The biggest sparkling wine day of the year, New Year's Eve, is right around the corner. Opening a bottle of sparkling wine can be a a dangerous proposition. There's a lot of pressure under that cork! But if you like living on the edge, there's always sabrage. When t... Read More
Italy is well known for many things and one of them is an inordinate number of different wine grapes. The variety (400-500) is practically dizzying. That sort of diversity is also present in Italian sparkling wine where a number of traditions persist. One of the best known is Prosecco. These wines are made with the Glera grape and fermented in s... Read More
This is not your first Thanksgiving rodeo. It's not ours, either. We've brought you a panoply of Thanksgiving table wine suggestions over the past ten years. There was the time we assured you that Thanksgiving wines wouldn't break your bank. In fact, we've discussed Thanksgiving value wines time and time again. We've been here for you during Tha...

August is here -- along with warm, steamy weather for most of the country. For some that means switching over to chilled cocktails or beer. What it should really mean for wine drinkers is carefully selecting wines that are well made, delicious, value driven and refreshing. The last thing anyone wants to sip in hot weather is a big, bloated and p... Read More
My quest to uncover wine categories that aren’t getting as much love as they deserve continues, and just in time for Valentine’s Day. As luck would have it many of the same groups of wine that don’t get enough attention also represent terrific values for wine lovers. Too many wines, too little time is one reason that some of these categories are... Read More
First ever wine or any beer attempt.Ok first off I used fresh apple from my orchard and local produce stand. I do not have a press so I cut them into quarters add enough waer to barely start to cover them and boiled for one hour. Everything smelled great. Whe I was done I had 6.5 gallons of the stuff. I filtered and filtered cause it was vary pu... Read More
Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More
In a world where extremes are becoming the paradigms for perfection its a little surprising that one doesn’t hear much of the wines of Saxony. Strike that. One doesn’t hear anything about these wines. And that is not surprising because the production is tiny and the wines almost all consumed locally. But you should be hearing about these wines, ...

I’ve been through this so many times before that it becomes rote. The differences between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio. Well, there really aren’t any, when we are referring to the grapes. One is the name in French while the other is the name in Italian. When it comes to the wines though, there remains some distinction, though that is disappearing... Read More
I was recently in Oregon, for the annual International Pinot Noir Celebration, which is a splendid reason to visit Oregon’s wine country, though you don’t need such motivation to be wowed by what you’ll find in McMinnville and the surrounding areas. While tons of Pinot were in fact tasted and consumed during that long weekend, today I want to ta... Read More
