AWE blind tasting - sweet herbal, sweet wood, sweet floral, nice bit of soil, touch of meat, a touch of watermelon liquor, raspberry liquor, sandlewood, nice slightly chewy feel, easy and well balanced, very drinkable, engaging if lacking just a touch ...
|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...

I know what you're thinking: A rose port? But this little gem will change the way you think about fortified wines. This lovely pink port wine is amazing is suprisingly fresh. It has a fruity, floral aroma, a silky texture, and tastes of cherry & raspb...

Earthy and bright on the nose with liquor black cherry fruit, and a touch spicy with menthol top notes. This is surprisingly fruity, ripe and rich up front with lovely purity to the cherry and black raspberry fruit. The tannins are fresh and crisp, whi...
The Argentinean 'incarnation' of the Malbec grape, with its tighter, smaller berry clusters than the varietal's original French predecessor lends beautifully to making Rose style wine. The Avanti, I think in particular, is a fantastic example of this....

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...

Some black cherry, pepper, a little earthy on the nose. A little light on the palate at first but opens up with a little time to breathe. Some notes of cherry come through on the palate again, but this is not a fruit forward wine. There's just enoug...
|Region:||USA » California » Lake County|
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...

Bodegas Frutos Villar, Toro, "Muruve", Crianza, 2006 Production background: 12 months oak, 12 months in bottle. 100% Tempranillo, Toro region, Spain. I gave it "4 stars" over there for its value in particular, along with an overall, "Parker-esque" r...

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

Hey, there's plenty of good wine in Hawaii:Maui Blanc!Tedeschi's stuff elsewhere I've spent a lot of time in Hawaii over the years. Had Tedeschi's pineapple wine a few times and it usually hit the spot . ;-) Then I moved on to pina coladas or maitais. ;-) ;-) Oh, and the stuff tends to taste better in that Hawaiian ambiance than other envi...

Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

I live in a relatively small condo Dave, I have a liquor cupboard with a couple cases of my lesser wines sitting passively. Maybe I should take the whole thing out and put in a small active cellar...it's about 8 feet high and two feet wide. Read More
I've mentioned elsewhere my aversion to flashy wine storage areas. I've mentioned the extensive renovations we've recently undergone that will enable us to survive three more years of having two teen girls, while making our abode a welcoming stopover for people as tall as GregT and as numerous as JD and his family. (We draw the line at families... Read More
Good timing, Emark, as I will be getting a half case of Ed Sbragia's Gino's Vineyard Zin this week. Ed made one of my favorite wines at Project Zin, which I wrote up a few years ago. Tops in the Zin and PS world by me. Really nice guy, too. Stayed in a room named for his family at the Dry Creek Inn last year, and laughed at the connection.Ok... Read More
Most of you know my taster prefers a nice Malbec. Well I have since graduated to many other varietals in the past 2 years. Cabs if course, Old Vine Zins, Oregon Pinot Noirs (the heavy ones), Sauvignon Blanc's from NZ, and some tasty Chards.Well the other day I noticed Layer Cake Cabernet Sauvignon, and wow being as I love Layer Cake Malbec (yum ...

That 'most livable' moniker about Vancouver has always cracked me up. Suicide rates, junky rates, rainy-day rates, affluent 'immigrant' (former 'communist block', etc. over the past 20 years particularly) influx driving up real estate prices beyond local reach, etc., etc. Seems certain statistics are being ignored in that kind of chamber-of-comm...
