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...

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 » San Joaquin County » Lodi|
This wonderful savory wine opens with a raisiny, Amarone-style nose, with whiffs of red and dark fruit intertwined, including raspberry and plum, followed by scents of leather, new rubber, new car interior, tar, tobacco, smoke, coffee, spinach, smoked ...
|Winery:||Bodegas Alto Moncayo|
|Region:||Spain » Navarra|
The 2008 Alto Moncayo Moncayo is a big, beautiful, full-bodied wine that evolves to its peak over 3 hours. The nose opens to intense aromas of blackberry and plum, with pepper and spice in the mix. The palate is strongly fruit forward at launch, with...

Interesting wine where the fruit and mineral seem to balance each other. Somewhat fruity and slightly sweet, although not really beyond off-dry. The 9.5% abv is good for keeping the crowd under control. Good wine for the tame-whites only crowd. Tes...
|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...
|Winery:||Domaine du Mas Blanc - S.C.A Docteur Parcé & Fils Propriétaire|
|Region:||Spain » Andalucía » Montilla-moriles|
Great PX. I found it leagues beyond the Osborne entry level PX. Tastes like good candy. Smells of raisins. Flavors of exotic woods, coffee, chocolate, toffee. Very thick, sweet and elegant. A great dessert wine. Pairs very nicely with Daphne baking com...

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...
|Winery:||Il Greppone Mazzi|
|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Montalcino|
The wine is a lovely ruby color in the glass with a tinge of brown around the edges, as is typical of mature Brunello. The nose is a lovely combination of floral notes, lavender, and spice along with rich leather and black licorice so typical of a nice...
|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...

DM, that was a fairly scary label and the chard wasn't all that great either. AOA, nice to see you enjoying some wine with the folks, hope they enjoyed it. I've been trying to do the same for years but M&D think that something special beyond white zin is white merlot.Tonight we did a simple grilled chicken salad with this Sancerre. Nice notes o...

A recent global report by Knight Frank Asia Pacific noted that, while the Chinese have long been synonymous with vineyard purchases, several other countries in the East are beginning to emerge as vineyard purchases. “Only two or three years ago any reference to Asian buyers was synonymous with the Chinese but now it refers to a broader mix of na...

Southern California, Al, specifically, eastern Los Angeles County.As much as I respect and typically agree with our most informed participants, I am going to buck GregT a bit and offer a defense of wine clubs. Now, my comments are restricted to winery clubs that offer only their wines. I have no interest in things like wine.com that want to se... Read More
OT,in Al's defense, I don't think I really matters whether it's in Napa or Sonoma as he'll likely be in both counties.However, I'm totally behind you about the BYO thingy. Al's accumulating wine faster than he drinks it. That is a SIN. For the life of me I cannot build beyond my 90+/- bottles. I drink some and replace some, but those are co... Read More
Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics. This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too. What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ... Read More
Import taxes on Chilean wine in China have come to an end nearly 10 years after the two countries signed a free-agreement under the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation pact. The no-tariff importation of Chilean wine officially kicked in earlier this month and applies to bottled and bulk wine imports, according to an article featured on website Fi... Read More
Unless you're an utter Revolutionary War geek, or want to get down and dirty and maybe survive a visit with the utterly wrong crowd, I think I already did. Two visits to Camden running into the wrong sorts years back and I knew that sage and manzanita and shale hillsides behind and head-high or higher gnarly breaks in front--with a proper burrit...

Sparkling wine critic Champagne Jayne is putting up a fight to keep her catchy moniker as representatives from France's Champagne region battle to protect their hallowed – and trademarked – name. Jayne Powell, the woman behind the Champagne Jayne name, won a trademark in 2012 for her Champagne Jayne branding. However, the Wine of Champagne Inter... Read More
Yes, DM, it was a 1991. It is funny, though, as I indicated above, if you do a bit of on-line research you find comments about it being a terrible vintage, and you find comments that it has emerged as a 90-rated wine.I have 3 more L-Bs in my inventory a '92, a '94 and a '96 (half-bottle). So, I am more than willing to continue the research.Han... Read More
15 years ago, before I retired, I had a couple of bottles of Chevalier de Bayard. It was the best tasting wine I'd ever had. But now that I'm on a fixed income, I can no longer spend $25 on a bottle of wine.Does anybody have any ideas of what wines are close to it but less expensive?Thank you Read More
