Wine & Beyond
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...

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:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Emilion Grand Cru|
The 2004 Barde-Haut has depth and power beyond its mid-rank status. The Merlot shines though with good concentration albeit with just a touch too much oak. The oak, however, dissipates rapidly after 10-15 minutes exposure to the air to reveal a well-...
|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...

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...
|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 ...

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...
|Region:||Italy » Sicily » Sicilia Igt|
Really nice balance of dark fruit and a splash of Earth. Great bit of structure here that took it beyond a mindless pizza wine.
|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...
|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...

Vinegar also helps, and you can then wash your mouth out with water before starting on any wine. That's often why meals in SE Asia, SW China, India, etc. have vinegared dishes paired with the capsaicin blasting-cap stirfries and stews. Yoghurt, too, as an alternative to milk that wants to replace wine or other alcoholic beverage. Both the vinega... Read More

Or... Read More
Turns out there’s a big difference not only in the way Aussie/Kiwi winemakers blend their wines, but also in the way they craft their social media strategies. Australian firm Mastermind Consulting released this past month a white paper on the trends and statistics of the Facebook pages of Australia and New Zealand’s most Facebook-popular wine p...

There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of Buckfast Tonic Wine. That’s okay with the monks at England’s Buckfast Abbey, whose tonic wine has wowed Englanders for many years and is beginning to become a cult favorite beyond the borders of its tranquil community. Reporter Stephen Castle covered the popularity of the wine in an article about the ... Read More
The Rhône holds a large piece of my heart for one big, unctuous reason: the Viognier grape. She’s the first white grape I ever loved. Viognier braved near-extinction and now enjoys an effusive existence in so many wine glasses worldwide. From the classic Condrieu varietal bottlings to red blend cameo appearances, Viognier’s oily bits of succulen... Read More
Hong Kong has long been on the cutting edge of pricey wine auctions and lofty vino ambitions, while China as a whole has lagged behind. This month South China Morning Post’s Post Magazine featured Chateau Margaux’s Thibault Pontallier in a question-and-answer session about the state of the Hong Kong/Chinese wine scene, as well as how the vino a...

If you’re an Alabama winery, you’ve got to keep your own wine sales in house. A new wine bill sponsored by Representative Becky Nordgren may change that, according to an article this past Wednesday by The Anniston Star reporter Kirsten Fiscus. “Alabama wineries would be able to sell their wine at local wine festivals if a new bill … becomes la...

Yesterday evening The Daily Mail reporter Sophie Borland broke the news of a study which said that England’s drinkers may benefit from having about half a glass less of wine per week. “Four in five drinkers would live longer if they cut back by just half a glass of wine a week, according to a major study,” the article said. “Around two-thirds o...

Unless you are incredibly lacking fortuna, you will find very good wine at most properties. I think the enjoyment is in the exploration and the beautiful Mediterranean scenery. As you have not visited Napa-Sonoma before, you are in for a treat. Even the coffee and the local produce is good. People live here for lifestyle and it shows... all ... Read More
