Savory Grape the
Opens with, though not overly unpleasant - wet cloth, then grape, both of which quickly disappear and on with the bright jelly-ish fruit, fudge, cinnamon, and vanilla. Swirl it around and get more cinnamon and minerality. More savory than fruity, with ...

Smells really Cabernet like recalling Napa cabernets of the 1970s. It’s a little smokey, blackcurrant and black cherry toned on the nose with a fine base of savory herbs, tobacco, tea, and old wood nuance. Big, round, soft tannins lend this a lovely ...

Nicely floral on the nose with streaks of blue fruit, a whiff of smoke and some ash and tart black currant fruit rounding out the aromas. Round fresh and zesty in the mouth, this shows nice depth on the palate and is almost rustic in an attractive way ...

The 2008 Hahn Meritage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (42%), Malbec (22%), Petit Verdot (22%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Merlot (4%). Now those of you who know me, know that I am not in any way a fan of Malbec, despite it's surge in popularity over t...

Picked this one up from Jubilation; A sniff and it opens with butterscotch, toffee, and condensed milk, quickly goes to plum, raspberry, cinnamon, vanilla, and grape jam. Opens further with more savory and herbal notes. A silky mouthful with a medium ...

This is very perfumed on the nose with a hugely fruity core that is slightly foxy and spicy with wild grape note over a bed of sandy soil and dried herbs. Rich in the mouth and somewhat soft at first, this really comes alive with lovely fruit full of m...

The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More
Every wine producing country has strengths and weaknesses, some more than others. Chile has many high points that make it a go-to country when looking for outstanding wine. The number of unique regions that feature diverse soil types and microclimates is simply astounding. Chile has three thousand miles of coastline north to south as well as mou... Read More

You’ll know a glass of Bordeaux when you sniff it -- from the pencil shavings of Pauillac to the elderflowers of Pessac-Leognan. Bordeaux is synonymous quality; it’s a universal truth of the collective wine consciousness. But while quality is often associated with premium pricing, this doesn’t mean you can’t find a great bargain in Bordeaux. The... Read More
There’s only one source for the best Italian wines in the world: Gambero Rosso. You can think of this publication as Italy’s answer to the United States’ Wine Spectator. Every year, Gambero Rosso puts on a worldwide “roadshow” known as Tre Biccheri (which means “Three Glasses” in Italian), to pour their best wines of year. “Three Glasses” is the... Read More

One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend. Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we? Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an... Read More
