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...

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...
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....

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...

I consistantly enjoy Layer Cake Malbec, it has the soothing taste that agrees with my wine palate. The dark fruit taste is deep, the chocolate overtones and the long smooth ending with just a subtle tannin risidual feeling on the inside of the mouth an...

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...

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...

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 ...

What a pleasant surprise from a winery I pretty much have learned to dismiss. What I don't like about Beringer is the amount of production they release! They scare me when their wines are available from Rite Aid to your local "booze hound" liquor store...
|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...

VV,I should have given my own notes! The nose reminded me of Washington Cab Sav, currants and some pencil lead. It was very full and I was surprised how much I liked it. What a nice change from all the Merlot heavy stuff I've been drinking. Long finish was great too. I think it's about $26 or so.It was the 2012 (the photo was for reference)... Read More
The eighth season of Joseph Rosendo’s Travelscope has given me the opportunity to discover some destinations I’ve never visited and new sides to places I’ve known. This season’s fifteen new PBS episodes (grand total 106 now) span the globe from Asia to Europe and have offered me the chance to sample some novel tastes. Since I am always in search... Read More
Hello, I am new to the forum.I am a big fan of Proseco and Cava, I have been reading about the Pet-Nat method of sparkling wine makeing, but I have not been able to locate a bottle locally. I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and have been to several of the large chain Wine/Liquor stores to locate a bottle to try, but none of the folks in th... Read More
The world of statistics and science becomes a very interesting realm when wine – or any type of alcohol for that matter – is thrown into the mix. Recent research has shown that drinking a certain amount of booze makes people more attractive, while compounds in red wine have amazing healing powers. Yet too much wine has all sorts of negative eff... Read More
I really enjoy this wine. It is not as sweet at some Riesling Spatlese wines. I have found this wine (vintage year 2013) in Delaware and Virginia but it does sell out fast. Have not been able to find it in New Jersey which is where I live. Still looking for a liquor store that carries it. Read More
Some United States wine buyers are subject to hefty tariffs. Others can hold onto more of their hard earned cash. Can you guess which state gets the most take from your bottle purchases? The results may surprise you.According to a Tax Foundation study, the tax code varies not only by state but also by alcohol level. Alcohol level is directly pro... Read More

Walk it off, indeed. A group of fundraisers in Wisconsin is fighting to change a state law that forbids them from walking between multiple locations and tasting wine.The Wine Walks, a bi-annual community fundraising event in Baraboo, Wisconsin, began in 2008.

You've got to hand it to the United States. They love their wine in all its forms – by the glass, by the bottle, through the written word and by just about anything else which can express the country's love for the nectar of the grape gods.The United Kingdom newspaper The Daily Mail recently ran its brief on the Vinexpo global wine fair, highlig...

Bitter is the first half of every bottle of wine in Ireland. Earlier this week, The Independent’s Aideen Sheehan revealed new numbers which show that half of what Irish wine drinkers pay for their vino goes directly to the government to cover a bouquet of taxes. “Over €5 from a typical €10 bottle goes in excise duty and tax and this has soared...
