Vines on Pine
95 points. This wine’s aroma is extremely concentrated with deep, dark smoke and black stone aromas at first. The cloud of initial darkness gives way to bramble fruit, rose vines, and exceptional dark fruit tones. There is an impression of sea fog, bl...

As the chilly season draws to a close our thoughts drift toward picnics in the park, fire pits at dusk, and sidewalk cafés. While there’s no reason to banish your red wines at the onset of spring, finding one that’s suited to the transition is key. It should be something bold, rugged and ripe with fresh fruit flavors. It should be a red wine gra... Read More
Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion. Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising. First - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free. Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label. Well, this 2014 Me... Read More
Hi everyone. This is my first post on the boards. My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit. We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

Recent research shows that a glass of red wine a day is like twenty minutes of vigorous exercise. So before summer rosés officially take hold, get in on the last gasps of Cabernet. I tasted through forty different Cabernets, all under $16. There are some superb examples here that you’re going to want to try. Cabernet, because of the value inhere... 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
The next time you visit Barcelona, Spain, get yourself into the mountainous vineyard regions of Priorat and Montsant, just a short drive from this beautiful Mediterranean city. “Which region is which?” This may sound crazy but think of the regions as a fried egg! The yolk is Priorat, the surrounding egg white is Montsant. Not very technical I ag... Read More

If you have any doubt that Austrians love their wine, consider the fact that the Viennese vineyards were begun 2,000 years ago and they are the only significant producing vineyards in the world growing within a cosmopolitan center’s city limits. The vines are less than 20 minutes by car, bus or train from the heart of the city. Austria has four ... Read More

Store was prompt and shipped wine well with insulating cushioning; it arrived just fine and in timely manner. However, the wine shown on the web site and the wine I ordered was 2009 vintage and the wine shipped was 2010. As it turns out, this wine is quite acceptable but I was disappointed at the change.
