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...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

My last experience with this wine, left me with an impression of an internationally style, however, on this night it came across and anything but that. The nose showed cherry liquor but was tempered by barnyard and a slight sawdust quality, which I fou...

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...

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...

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...

It has been a HOT year. A REALLY HOT year. Here in New York we are just starting to feel the effects of a summer long drought with reduced yields through smaller berries. Changing weather patterns is a really obvious side effect of climate change however there are several ways that climate change can affect the world of wine that may be more sur... Read More
This off-dry Riesling from the Niagara Peninsula of Ontario, Canada is a very fine offering from the LCBO (Ontario Liquor Control Board); it has beautiful and inviting notes of petrol, lemon, and sour apple on the nose, and it gets better: the flavour is rich, the mouth feel viscous and green-apple dominant on the finish without excessive warmth...

Enjoying this nice Sancerre while visiting the folks here in Michigan this week. Mom had her 2nd knee done, this one at 88 years old. She's in the rehab facility for a week so I'm helping my Dad for the next couple of days. Have a couple rounds of golf planned with my brother and hoping to see my sisters while here. Nice to get a bit of relief ... Read More
My last place before this one was one of those modern industrial loft-type designs. Lived there quite awhile. Stairs up to the loft bedroom allowed lots of storage underneath. Had some built-ins there for wine and liquor as well as cookbooks and some art and the like. Convenient, attractive, but not a place to store for the longterm the way I ha... Read More
Hello everyone, I am relatively new to wine collecting and I'd like to establish a storage area in my house to store and age wine.I have a unique space in my house that would be really cool to convert to a "wine cellar", but I'm not sure how to prepare it. It is a space under my stairs, that is built out as a small storage room. My kids have use... Read More
EMARK - You are correct in your "grabbed a google pic". I did order the '13.My camera is still locked up in my uncle's house in Minneapolis for the next 3-4 weeks until an executor is named - pisses me off that they are so slow. So - google, vintner's sites - whatever I can do.I ordered from KL Wines - been shopping there since the mid-80's, fi... Read More
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...
