The 2004 Pemberley Shiraz has been bottle matured into a medium bodied velvety wine with black pepper and red berries, with touches of musk, cloves and leather. This is balanced by fine grain tannins, elegant oak characters and a long complex finish. I...
The first release of the Delas Frères Hermitage Les Bessards was from the 1990 vintage. Production from the 50-year old vines is small; only the very best wines in the very best years are used for Les Bessards. The majority are used for the Delas Hermi...

This is one of those rare wines that you don't soon forget. Deep gold color, tartrate crystals on the cork, beautiful nose, gobs of fruit, honey, lime and mineral notes, long finish, excellent acid balance and nice richness. I've been tasting German wi...

Cypher Winery (formerly Four Vines) has come up with one of the most intriguing and interesting wines I have come across (in a very good way). Although about a third of the varietal composition, the Portuguese grapes really show and shine. Deep, supe...

|Varietal:||Grenache , Syrah , Mourvèdre|
Another gem from Perrin et fils. This one is from the vaunted 2010 vintage (S. Rhone) and does not disappoint with a bouquet of cherry pie and Creamsicle. The Grenache dominance makes for more sweet cherry on the palate with little tannin or acidity ...

|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Emilion|
This is a nice ripe Bordeaux blend from the warm 2005 vintage. I'm guessing this wine is mostly Merlot with a bit of Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc mixed in. Not over extracted, nice bright ruby color. Very aromatic with red fruit and minerality poking ...

|Region:||Portugal » Douro|
|Varietal:||Touriga Nacional , Roriz , Tinta Cao , Tinta Barroca|
This house must certainly be the Latour of Portugal. Their ports are remarkably backward yet still impressive when young. Of all the vintage ports, those of Taylor need the longest time to mature and even when fully mature seem to have an inner strengt...

This would appear to be a sure bet for the wine of the vintage. Certainly, it is the most complete and backward 1987, with at least 10-15 years of aging potential. The touching dedication from the late Baron Philippe de Rothschild's daughter on the lab...
|Winery:||Domaine de la Pepiere|
|Region:||France » Loire » Pays Nantais » Muscadet|
You can read the lot number on this bottle of non-vintage, due to it falling outside of the Archaic French winemaking regulations, bottle of deliciously pure Cabernet Franc. There's always a lightness and delicacy to reds wines produced by masters of w...
|Winery:||Red Rock Winery|
|Region:||USA » California|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Franc , Merlot|
Very rich and flavorful with nice fruit and tannins. This is one of my go-to wines that I always have a few bottles in the cellar. Very consistently excellent from vintage to vintage. Great with grilled beef. Over the last few years the price on this h...

This bottle of port was a gift.Port wine is from the Douro valley in northern Portugal and takes its name from the City of Oporto at the mouth of that river.It is a fortified wine because brandy is added to arrest the fermentation process.The late bottled vintage style of port originated at the Taylor Fladgate port house in 1970.Wines from a sin...

White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

Last week I reported that I tried the 2013 Lyeth Meritage on our Thursday evening Hollywood Bowl picnic. Over the weekend we were at Trader Joe's and, so, I picked up a couple more bottles. Tonight, I am going to try another bottle to see if my previous positive opinion was tainted by our good spirits, that night. Last week I mentioned that I ... Read More
Blast the gaps in back vintage stock! I've got a pretty big gap on all vintages prior to 2008.The 2011 Fenocchio Barolo's I tried last winter needed many hours in the decanter, and/or a two day situation to open. Since I bought nearly a case, and wasn't entirely happy with the first, wanted to crack another while visiting RF and it seemed to pre... Read More
As I've mentioned a few times over the years, I'm not a fan of indiscriminate decanting--especially since sourcing for good vintages of good wines has often been iffy and extremely pricey in several places I've lived, so I want to get the maximum I can from each bottle and don't want to mollydooker the thing. For logistical reasons, haven't felt... Read More
I run the wine courses at one of the UK’s leading culinary academies and recently let slip to the chefs that I’d matched a herb crusted trout recipe with Soave in a recent magazine article. Their pan faces and deafening silence said it all! To be honest, I wasn’t surprised as this dry Italian doesn’t have a very good image on English wine shelve... Read More
What are the secrets of a winemaker with over one hundred 90+ point wines across decades, appellations, and grapes? Perhaps it’s like any top chef: Add a pinch of this, a dash of that, and voila – you’ve got an award winning product. But decorated Murrieta’s Well winemaker Robbie Meyer doesn’t believe in recipes. Rather, he brings an intuitive c... Read More
EM - Well at least it should have put you in the mood for South American music and hospitality with the Olympic games starting up in nearby Brazil. It sucks when others are rude and ignorant of how they are disturbing nearby folks who are there to enjoy the performance. We attended a Nationals baseball game last night with our neighbors Debbie... Read More
HDH is a good source for older bottles, although I haven't bought anything more than 25 years young from them. Great thing about Madeira is it probably didn't even care that much how it was stored, so it's a pretty good bet.Okay, I've proven to be completely helpless at maintaining my SIWBM. Might need to have it Outside Imposed or something. ... Read More
