Wine and Shine
Animal, earthy, musty aromas lead to a very fleshy wine with a great rich mouth feel. Fruity strawberry and banana notes shine through. Very nice.
|Region:||USA » California » Napa » Howell Mountain|
This wine has a nice deep ruby, almost purple color in the glass, and a consistency that makes it shine as a solid example of a good Napa Valley vintage. The nose is filled with spices and rich ripe fruit, with notes of anise, tarragon and black peppe...

This is a great reminder of the versatility Cabernet Franc offers to the wine lover. Peconic Bay's maritime climate seems to coddle the Cabernet Franc grapes allowing them to ripen slowly. Nice extraction in the glass captures the eye, but, it's the i...

Lovely nose - very intense fruit. But this isn't all fruit as there is some nice complexity here with some minerality and earthiness to balance the fruit. Tannins are nicely controlled and just a bit of oak that isn't too overpowering. My friend called...

Excellent wine , . The colour gold yellow and intense shine ( 10). In the nose, aroma´s fruit season mature , almond and truffle (30). In the mouth , correct a little intense (30). Good wine with chicken dishes (16). Rate:86/100

A luscious yet friendly Chardonnay, fresher than a hickey on a Catholic school girl's neck on the first day of class. This Chardonnay is a true example of the style of Chardonnay for which Washington is becoming known. Crisp, clean, citrus and honey s...

A full-bodied, deep wine, it’ll take time to open up. I shook mine in an empty and cleaned-out gefilte fish jar, to add oxidization quickly. But even then, it didn’t really shine until about an hour later. On the nose, it’s spicy and bewitching, a lit...
|Region:||Italy » Sicily » Vittoria|
Rather assertive on the nose with dark cherry fruit topped with fine floral and herbal top notes. This smells decidedly ripe. Youthful and maybe a bit closed on the palate with a slightly dense feel, though this remains lively and elegant. There’s a re...
|Winery:||Weingut Josef Leitz|
|Region:||Germany » Rheingau|
Overwhelming aroma of minerals upon opening. After allowing to sit for about 40 minutes, nice floral and mild citrusy characters begin to shine through. Delicious, well rounded flavor profile with tropical fruits and minerals, dirt, and a very zesty ac...
|Region:||USA » New York » Suffolk County » Long Island » North Fork of Long Island|
Incredibly fruity with notes of cacao, chocolate and spice. Rich plummy fruits burst out, and even with this, the wine displays great balance. There's age and some secondary characteristics are beginning to shine: mushrooms and a nice earthiness. Plent...

“Spat” means “late” in German. In (that crazy) German noun compounding, Spat + Burgunder = “late-ripener from Burgundy”. That, in turn, means Pinot Noir. Chances are good you’ve never seen a bottle of Spatburgunder, much less tasted one, but hopefully that soon changes. Today over one-third of German wine is red, and Spatburgunder is the leading...

Comparing Randy Dunn 's Howell Mountain fruit to To Kalon's Oakville valley fruit is a bit of a stretch. Then there's the Dunn winemaking stye...I've had plenty of To Kalon wines on the young side and I can say one thing, they are never lacking. Sure they were young but they showed the parts that will make them shine brighter in years to come. F... Read More
In the wine world, consumers judge the books by their cover. This past Friday, The Wall Street Journal reporter Lettie Teague dove into the world of wine labelling, talking with designers and experts about the visual coaxing which takes place when the average consumers walks into their local supermarket. “Ask someone the kind of wine he prefers...

"When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed. Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women. This morning, with... Read More

Hi James, nice to have you back.Serve it colder than you'd serve any other wine. Not freezing, but definitely on the colder side. You taste far more sugar the warmer the beverage or food, and the sugar levels in that will make you nauseous at warm temps. You don't have to serve it at the same temp as an ice-cold beer, but I think it's better to ... Read More
I received a nice bottle of Ice Wine from a friend. Although I understand it goes well with fruit and desserts how do I drink this wine?Is there a way to prepare myself with food, wine temperature or do I just open it and sip it?I have never tasted this wine and don't know what to expect other than it's sweet like Sauternes.

Bordeaux gets a bad rap for several reasons. the top wines are ridiculously expensive. They also require significant time in the cellar to really show their stuff, and the style of these wines has changed over the years, becoming bolder, riper, and to many palates both less fresh and less complex. That’s the problem with expensive Bordeaux, but ... Read More
