Smoky, ripe and complex on the nose, with deep earthy, medicinal accents to the candied black fruit and a lovely hint of chocolate liquor and chocolate covered cherry. Electric acids on attack are followed by rich,powerfully dark yet fresh fruit, unfol...
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza » Lujan de Cuyo|
Smells a bit poo-ey, at first with a touch of funk that blows off to reveal dark earthy scents of sandy soil, almost a bit of nasty beach, fudgy, a bit odd and decidedly gamy with lurking floral tones. It’s very supple in the mouth, lovely bright fruit...

Layers on the nose with cherry liquor, cinnamon graham cracker, black licorice and a bit of oak. Big dark red fruit and spicy on the palate but streamlined by a great balance of acidity. Great mix for this big wine that keeps it fresh and elegant. Long...
Very good. Light, simple, crisp, green appley. Would add a bit of flavored vodka to kick it up, good wine for adding some liquor to for a cocktail.

This particular Pinot is almost purple in color. The initial aroma is of cherry liquor and smoky tobacco with a hint of spice. It is also quite oaky and somewhat complex. The wine starts out very full bodied and has flavors of dark plum, cherries and...

|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Estèphe|
The nose was savory and meaty with dark red fruits, sweet cinnamon spice and hint of liquor. On the palate, it was big and rich with ripe, juicy fruit and herbal tea. The finish was mouth-coating but turned juicy with a slight medicinal note. This was ...

The 2008 vintage has reached it's "expiration date". I got this for 75% off at a local liquor store since it expired about a month ago, which means I paid a mere $6 for 4 bottles worth of wine. I was unaware that box wines actually had expiration dat...

Carob, cola, herb, freshly sawn oak and earth all pop on the rather intense nose that features dried raspberry fruit. Bright and crisp one entry with lovely earthy and slightly vegetal nuances up front followed by a nice raspberry and mulberry midpala...

|Region:||France » Armagnac » Côté Tariquet|
A bit of raw wood greets the nose here with oaky spice. On the palate, this shows off a little liquor quality to the transparent black cherry and black currant fruit. Turning a touch creamy on the palate, this remains nicely bright and fresh on the fin...
|Region:||France » Champagne|
This is a difficult call: the wine has all the markings of a fine Champagne with excellent effervescence (lengthy and continuous, I mean), brioche nose and buttered toast on both palate and olfactory bulb(s). I acquired this wine at a considerable dis...

Have you discovered the joys of sipping your rum neat, or are you only mixing it into cocktails? Both are certainly delicious ways to enjoy rum. However if you’re not yet familiar with expressions that can be sipped much like one would scotch you’re missing out.

This morning I was pontificating in the coffee shop about wine bottle labeling. My buddy, being the the ex-lawyer type, asked a lawyer question. Who monitors this stuff?I then realized that I had never heard of anybody (OK, I'm talking domestically, here.) being accused of say:Labeling a bottle as "Cabernet Sauvignon" and, then, being caught f...

"I think to limit the conversation to just Cali cabs is to narrow."But that was the question posed by the OP." Now I'm really confused. Where in the OP was California specified?I think it's patently absurd to talk about 'Cab Sav' (the ultimate Americanization--where'd the 'u' go?) without reference to Bordeaux, and other New World sites. I also ... Read More

I recently found this Cremant de Limoux for sale at my local supermarket. They just started carrying Gerard Bertrand's wines, which none of the local wine/liquor stores carry. This sparkling wine is quite nice for the money, very dry, medium small bubbles, with a clean aftertaste. However, there are several other brands in this price range that ... Read More
If I remember correctly, last year at Bottle Rock (Annual Music Festival in Napa) the ABC came down hard on a number of wineries who were pouring at the event claiming that their liquor licenses did not allow them to pour wine away from their facilities. Big fines and license suspensions were imposed. It was a joke and they all appealed the ruli... Read More
