Wonderful interpretation of the classic Tuscan grape variety. Slightly sweet aroma of red fruits. Hints of cherry and raspberry amongst balanced acidity and tame, light tannins. Nicely paired with any tomato-based pasta dish. I had the 2004 vintage bac...
Shiraz / Barossa Valley 91 pts. / $14-$21 This is the second time I have reviewed Tait's "Ball Buster". I raved about it last year when the 2005 was released, and I was looking forward to see if the wine quality would remain consistent. It has. ...
Rarely do you encounter anyone as single minded and committed to his ‘one true path’ as Felice Coppo. And the intensity of his wine vividly reflects the intensity of the man. Made from old vine Barbera of Monferrato, which until recently remained one...
No vintage on the label. Price was around $14. I met one of the winemakers, who was at a wine shop in New York City promoting his product. He said he preferred blends, and did not understand why Americans didn't drink more of them, and I agreed. Th...

What the heck is Muscat Hamburg (Black Hamburgh) you ask? Well as a relative to Muscat Blanc (Moscato) it's a very aromatic and flavorful grape and one that deserves to be planted more often. If you've had his Cabs you might not think of Togni as opu...

Very citrus and floral on the nose. Scents of green apple and pear. Slight alcohol. Evident muscat effervescences with slight oak finish. Slightly tangy. Enjoyed this very different white. A moderate to high in terms of its refreshing factor. A light ...

Unlike most mourvedre I've tasted this wine is fairly full-bodied in its mid-palate and finish (a plus) but its fruit is so pronounced it needs 45 minutes to breathe and reveal more complex fruit, forest floor, etc. Wine increasingly impressed me as i...

This bottle of wine was part of a lot I bought on the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/68532. Banyuls is an appellation created in 1936,although viticulture in the area goes back centuries,for red and white fortified wines from around the Mediterranean seaside town of that name between Perpignan and the Spanish border.This is the same ...

I am drinking a 2013 Porca de Murca, Douro Reserva from Portugal. The wine seems to be fine, clear sight, clean fruity nose, in the beginning its fine on the palate (maybe a lack of fruit compared to the nose)... everything but the finish. It has a weird bitter finish, very unpleasant. Its not the tart taste of tannins (even so it is pretty high... Read More
Too nippy here for that. I do miss SoCal from time to time.Personally I've always viewed a vintage as pretty much starting after harvest. What with nouveau efforts on the one hand to variations in winemaking (and in the old days shipping practices) sometimes leading to extremely long barrel aging on the other, it's hard to do talk about a single...

Doesn't really matter about the grape. It isn't wine until fermentation has been completed. Read More
This is precisely why I waited until late August to open my 1994 Mondavi reserve and Beringer private reserve a couple years ago. In March, they weren't twenty years old.At what point is a grape berry a being? Read More
I started a thread on WB recently, and not many folks agreed with my stance, though I suspect many more do agree that just don't say anything.Strictly speaking about Northern Hemisphere Wines, leaving the various barrel aging out of it for sake of discussion. 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
Good timing, Emark, as I will be getting a half case of Ed Sbragia's Gino's Vineyard Zin this week. Ed made one of my favorite wines at Project Zin, which I wrote up a few years ago. Tops in the Zin and PS world by me. Really nice guy, too. Stayed in a room named for his family at the Dry Creek Inn last year, and laughed at the connection.Ok... Read More
When I first became interested in wine I used to get Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino mixed up, never mind having difficulty pronouncing them. A few years down the line I’d sorted it; both are from the Tuscan town of Montalcino in Central Italy, from the same grape variety, and come in a similar shaped bottle. Or had I? A recent vi...
