|Winery:||Domaine Leon Barral|
|Region:||France » Languedoc-roussillon » Languedoc » Faugères|
I bought three bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/33868 for £21.50.I had also bought some of the 1999 vintage which I enjoyed.Faugeres is an AOC for red,white and rose wines from the area around the village of that...
|Winery:||The Little Penguin|
|Region:||Australia » South Eastern Australia|
Surprisingly tasty and rounded for a wine at this price point. I held off till my second try from the bottle before scoring because one of my criteria for scoring is how a wine drinks after the vacu-vin/refrigeration episode. After 2 days in the fridge...
|Winery:||Château Pey La Tour|
|Region:||France » Bordeaux|
This is my first taste of Pey la Tour in many years, and the 2012 vintage (considered "classic") is the perfect point of return. It greets the nose with cherries and earth - not a great deal more - but typical red from the region (Bordeaux A. C.). En...
|Region:||France » Rhône » Southern Rhône » Vinsobres|
A splendid little wine by Perrin et fils, this regular Southern Rhone offering is redolent of wild blueberry and bilberry with soft tannin and blended red fruit mid-palate - perfect for current consumption from a highly touted vintage (which, in this i...
|Winery:||Eric Kent Wine Cellars|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Russian River Valley|
The 2004 vintage is a tremendous pinot noir from the Russian River. The wine is very concentrated with complex layer fruit ranging over Pinot Noir in the new world. The initial flavors are cherry, blueberry changing into blueberry jam, smoky and...
|Region:||Spain » Castilla y León » Toro|
Bodegas Frutos Villar, Toro, "Muruve", Crianza, 2006 Production background: 12 months oak, 12 months in bottle. 100% Tempranillo, Toro region, Spain. I gave it "4 stars" over there for its value in particular, along with an overall, "Parker-esque" r...
|Region:||Italy » Veneto » Prosecco Di Conegliano-valdobbiadene|
Perfect little non-vintage Prosecco. Full of green apple and under-ripe peach with scents of honey and honeysuckle flower. Medium to soft acidity, but an overall great sipper. Had it with fresh oysters. At the price point, cannot be better.
|Winery:||Produttori del Barbaresco|
|Region:||Italy » Piemonte » Barbaresco|
Dark and earthy at first with raspberry in alcohol, tree bark, fleshy wild cherry and a minor menthol note. This opens to reveal good aromatic complexity full of incipient floral tones, pollen, and fennel seed tones. Sweet on entry with a really nice s...
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Julien|
This highly regarded wine has some presence in my cellar, perhaps because, as Stephen Brooks notes, there is something slightly wild in each bottle. On the nose, there is sweet blueberry and wood (cedar) with just a hint of cloves. Inviting. On the ...
|Winery:||Viña Casas Patronales|
|Region:||Chile » Central Valley » Maule Valley|
2014 vintage as impressive as 2013, medium to full bodied dry Chilean red with dark fruit, earth, and coffee notes, smooth finish for this price point $6 what are you kidding me all day, barefoot and yellowtail got nothing on this one, their Merlot is ...

Greg, you were right when you said it's tough to keep a forum going. Though this does seem to be an especially slow week all over the place...on the road, in business, etc. good to see people take some time out. 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
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
This is 99% Cabernet Sauvignon with a tiny dollop (1%) of Petit Verdot blended in. The fruit comes from a combination of their hillside vineyard and the Borderline Vineyard about 2 miles south of the facility. Red and black cherry aromas are joined by hints of thyme. The palate is robust and beefy with continuing cherry flavors as well as black ... Read More
OT, takes one to know one!BTW, that '09 Brunello is one to jump on now, too. That vintage is more forward and riper than my typical choices in BdM, definitely not for the cellar at this point. But it's Lisini, and they don't bottle it as BdM if it doesn't meet standards, so it's going to be tasty with a Bistecca Fiorentina or some rabbit ragu. Read More

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
