|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 ...

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...

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...
|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...
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...

|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...
|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...

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...

|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...

When you spend more than two weeks in a place you soak in a lot about it. Taste all the wine you want at home, but there’s simply no substitute for standing in the dirt where the wine is grown or for tasting it alongside those who shepherd it into existence. These things are certainly true of a recent trip I took to New Zealand, which saw me cri... Read More
Haven't posted on wine excesses in awhile so here goes. Sorry, JD, no pix--wasn't that kind of night, to put it mildly. But last night was an interesting one. Started with a Kyung Wha Chung concert.J. S. Bach Sonata No.1 in G minor, BWV1001 Partita No.1 in B minor , BWV1002 Sonata No.2 in A minor, BWV1003 Partita No.2 in D minor, BWV1004 Sonata ...

Here in the United States we are on a first-name basis with our wine grapes. The majority of casual wine drinkers understand what “Merlot”, “Moscato”, and “Cabernet” mean. Nowadays “Pinot” and even “Riesling” are familiar pals too. This is largely because the United States and other New World regions label their wines by varietal rather than geo... Read More
Hey it's my first time on here - what an adventure! There's more to do here than things to buy at Costco (ie, a lot). We live in Napa and are starting a wine importing business. Who needs more wine in Napa you ask? We think everyone. My wife and I are both from Europe (Spain and Ukraine) and have extensive wine maker friendships across Spain... Read More
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
I love a good value when it comes to sparkling wine, but there are so many occasions that warrant higher price points. In fact, purpose is the single most important part of any sparkling wine purchase. Is it a romantic affair or a graduation? Is it Thanksgiving or a retirement party? Will you be present when the bottle is opened? Generally speak... Read More
We wine lovers think of winemakers like celebrities. Much like chefs, we want our winemakers to flex creative muscle to create potpourris of grapes in the bottle. Look out, varietal wine. Blends have arrived. This isn’t news to most, but it’s a trend that’s here to stay. We want to witness varietal synergy in our glasses and feel assured that on... Read More
Many wineries are distinctly associated with a single appellation or growing region. Martin Ray Winery unlike most can claim to real roots in two distinct California counties, Santa Cruz and Sonoma. When you consider the fact that they also source grapes in some of Napa Valley’s most prime AVA’s the picture that comes in to focus shows a brand 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
