Opening this beautiful wine so young borders on infanticide, but even so this is my favorite Bella Zin to date. Despite the usual firmness and structure found in young Bella wines, this one provides plenty of deep, musky, earthy Zinfandel fruit that su...

|Varietal:||Marechal Foch , Chambourcin|
The same formula as the Picnic Red, the winemaker describes this as being made in a "different style." It is definitely aged longer, and has stronger oaking with some nice notes of toast in the nose and mouth. Nice notes of fruit on the palate, possi...

|Varietal:||Chardonnay , Pinot Nero|
60% Chardonnay/ 40% Pinot Noir grown between 350 and 500 meters of elevation near Faedo. 35% of the Chardonnay is barrel fermented; the remainder of the wines are fermented in Stainless steel. Aged 5 years on the lees which include three strains of ye...

So this is made at a fancy hotel in Portugal and for the most part is only avail;be at the hotel, talk about hard to find. However, it's a fabulous wine and worth mentioning if only to alert those who might one day stay at the Hotel Bucaco about this w...
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza » Valle de Uco|
Rather restrained with smoky, earthy light toast notes over vanilla tinged raspberry jam with a minor gamy/barnyard edge. Good intensity, modest complexity but more syrah character than some of the other wines here. Nicely gamy notes emerge with a sali...
|Winery:||Tenuta il Borro|
|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Toscana Igt|
Il Borro is part of a stable of wines introduced by Salvatore Ferragamo, whose grandfather built the famous footwear brand. From Arezzo, Italy this blend is a balancing act of 50% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Syrah, and aged in French barri...
This nice little dry Prosecco (not really traditional - but more in the modern vein, it seems) has a good lemon nose and white toast and lemon palate with no bitterness on the finish - which is a pleasant surprise. This is the beer or wines - except f...
|Winery:||Sand Hill Wines|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma Valley|
From NorCalWine.com / Fred Swan: The wine is bright ruby in color with a pale rim and clear legs that telegraph a somewhat luxurious mouthfeel without over- extraction. Swirl the wine in your glass and this Pinot Noir’s complexity will reach out to ...
|Winery:||Field Stone Winery & Vineyard|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Alexander Valley|
This is a bit tight on the nose with lots of licorice, light toast and cranberry character on the nose, with big, floral fennel seeds. Round and opulent in the mouth but is bright and clear as a bell. Love this texture. Tall and tense on the tongue, th...
|Winery:||Malk Family Vineyards|
|Region:||USA » California » Napa » Stags Leap District|
Wow! This is an astonishing and unique cabernet. At opening, the nose fills with the scent of brandy, accompanied by a wonderful cast of rich fruits, including cherry, prunes and blueberry, along with fresh spring grass and spicy notes of cloves, white...

Columbia Valley, Columbia Gorge, and Walla Walla Valley: a triumvirate of outstanding wine producing regions with a fascinating twist. While there are numerous ways in which these three areas are vastly different from each other, they have one key similarity. Their acreage spans across both Washington and Oregon states. I spent a week traveling ... Read More
One of the first things that comes to mind when a consumer envisions a winery is a huge stack of barrels. The amazing smell of wine soaked oak with its toasty, warm wood scent is intoxicating. As a winemaker, I never get tired of it. It always smells good assuming that the winery is taking proper care of their investment with cleanliness and san... Read More
I've taken the liberty of posting a portion of Kermit Lynch's most recent newsletter. It's a piece Jim Harrison wrote for them nearly a decade ago on wine's significance in his life, and there are several specific examples of food and wine matching.Harrison died recently and I mourned him as another of the greats who have passed this decade. Lot... Read More
Looking forward to trying these wines. Pick-up is May 1st. Joel going back to his roots and old school production methods for these small lot wines. The EssentialsFor this first release, Once & Future wines will be sold on a first come, first served basis. We have no idea what the demand might be for these wines, but the volumes are small tha...

ProWein, the annual wine and spirits fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, is the high water mark for wine brands, regions, and drinkers worldwide. Nearly every wine producing area you’ve ever heard of (or not heard of) is represented at this event. The event is so huge that it should have its own postal code. This is one of those rare instances in life ... Read More
We had a fun Friday evening on the 8th of April. Started with a wine tasting at the Crystal City Wine Shop, then we rode the Metro into Washington DC to dine at the Cork Wine Bar before walking over to see a play (Moment) at the Studio Theater. We really loved the LAN Rioja wine at the shop, but we didn't buy any bottles this evening since we ... Read More
Apart from lack of hygiene in the winery, what part of the winemaking process allows for a funky nose? Read More
When you think of drinking wine at the appropriate age, what picture comes to mind? Usually it is a red wine. Maybe a decanter is involved? It’s a special occasion or with friends and family. However, not all wine is designed to age a long time. I have heard so many stories of people saving a bottle of wine that they were given as a gift only to... Read More
Well, that Trump wine doesn't even compare to some of the other wines we've tasted. Sandra has the last of it in her glass, so we can still toast his win in Florida tonight. It's a shame that Rubio had to drop out of the race.....not. JD - I wonder how that 2013 Eyrie Pinot Noir is going to taste? I'm really looking forward to our visit with... Read More
OT - I'd rather you enjoy that bottle in the proper glass with perhaps a bit of cheese and toast. You've been sitting on it and I'm sure a 2006 is ready to drink. If you do open it, first try a bit just in the glass and tell me if it then improves as it gets some air over the next 15 minutes.On a side note, the bottle prices are indeed very hi... Read More
