Much like its cousin the St Urbans-Hof estate version (which about USD4 pricier). Interesting wine where the fruit and mineral seem to balance each other; I particularly liked the consistent mineral taste in this wine. Somewhat fruity and slightly swee...
|Region:||France » Rhône » Southern Rhône » Côtes du Rhône Villages|
I'm not a huge fan of the regular Bernard Cotes-du-Rhone, but this Villages was surprisingly good. Nothing above and beyond what you would expect, but a great example of a well-priced entry level rhone wine.
|Region:||Chile » Colchagua Valley|
(20 minute decant) The 2008 Casa Silva Carmenere Reserva has a rich and intense nose of dark fruits & candied plum. The approach on the palate is in no way subtle but is also soft and packed with finesse with regard to its price tag. The mid palate is...
|Winery:||Château de Parenchere|
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Bordeaux Supérieur|
Medium bodied with a decent finish. Tasted hints of blackcurrant and oak accompanied by a background of soft tannins. They state the ideal drinking period is 4 to 10 years but I felt like this wine was at its peak if not a little beyond it. The wine wa...
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Médoc » Moulis En Médoc|
Tasted October 2008: Terrific wine. Comparable to Chasse-Spleen but more elegant and deeper. An Haut-Médoc classic and quintessential Moulis. Only a shade of maturity in the colour, ripe cabernet-driven bouquet, a creamy texture in the mouth but with t...
|Winery:||Col Solare Wines|
|Region:||USA » Washington » Columbia Valley|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon , Merlot , Cabernet Franc , Petit Verdot , Syrah|
This was the wine that started me on my love affair with Washington Bordeaux Blends. Exquisitely crafted, the wine is subtle yet powerful, dense, complex and extremely enjoyable. Cocoa powder is immediacies apparent on the nose along with black cherr...
|Region:||USA » California » Central Coast|
From the Wine Enthusiast, Has this vineyard ever produced anything less than a spectacular Pinot Noir? Hitching Post’s ’06 showcases its exotic spiciness and the way its power is modulated with an elegant structure. Cloves, nutmeg, allspice and white ...
|Region:||USA » California » Napa » Mount Veeder|
The nose on this voluptuous wine opens to powerful aromas of floral and medicinal tints. The aromatic array broadens and balances at one hour and beyond, offering up notes of orange peel, blueberry and burnt pine. The palate launches closed and tanni...
|Winery:||Mutt Lynch Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Dry Creek Valley|
A great petite sirah from Mutt Lynch winery. The color and aroma are excellent and entice you to want to taste the wine. Then when you do finally taste the wine it does not disappoint, I enjoyed how it had a sense of fruit beyond what I normally expe...
|Region:||USA » California » Napa|
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...

Hold 2014-2022-"This is beautifully perfumed, with flowers and dried raspberries. Full body, with silky and polished tannins and a berry, cherry aftertaste. Not quite the 2006 but succulent and bright." James Suckling, 94 Points"A whiff of fresh flowers from a rose garden or a lavender field makes for a nice first impression. Beyond that is dark...

Recently touring the Franciscan Winery in Napa Valley our host was an excellent spokesman for wine, the restaurant business and the pairing of food with wine. At one point in his conversation he spoke of smelling three quadrants of the wine glass to pick up different aromas. Now after a few glasses of their finest, I cannot remember exactly what...

Like Zinfandel, Petite Sirah is primarily a California wine: the Golden State’s long, sunny growing seasons are necessary to ripen Petite Sirah’s substantial tannins and reveal its rich blackberry flavors. The wine’s structure, fruit and inky color make it an excellent blending partner for Zinfandel, red Rhône varieties and even Cabernet Sauvign... Read More
Just returned from San Francisco, Ca and took a wine tour to Napa Valley. Visited Robert Mondavi, Folie a Deux, Andretti winery and Franciscan winery. Was awesome. While at Robert Mondavi the host and tour guide talked about the History and production of Mondavi Wines. The winery was absolutely beautiful. There was a time when the tour guide had... Read More
I just posted almost all of my notes on Bordeaux 2012 on my website, and I must say that Trotanoy and La Fleur Petrus are actually tempting me, price-wise, to "pull the futures trigger". But that's about it. Palmer, also on my very top list of faves, is just too expensive. I mean, I could get a Leoville Poyferre 1990 for about the same pric... Read More
I plan on participating in the Lodi Virtual Tasting this week. So, I figured that a good place to find the wines that are in the VT would be Total Wines. In fact, I did reasonably well and found 3 of the 4. (Here's a PSA for VT participants. No driving after this tasting. The low ABV that I bought was 14.5. The other two were over 15.)Well,...

An interesting article --http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/01/dining/kevin-pogue-seeks-washington-states-top-terroir.htmlI've yet to try any wines from Walla Walla -- simply not available here -- but keep reading about them. It's on my to-do list for if I ever visit the US. But it's particularly interesting to see they're taking terroir more seriou... Read More
This just arrived in my email--hoping the nested Snooth link doesn't cause the universe to collapse in an endless do-loop or a black hole:Let's have dinner... I love New York. Sure, it’s been said by others, but the fact is, I really do love New York- there’s an energy there that no place on earth can duplicate. During my last visit in March I h... Read More
