|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Dry Creek Valley|
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...

|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...

|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:||USA » Connecticut|
|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...
|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:||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...

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

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
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
