Beefy, hay, dry grass, farm, meadow, black pepper all contribute to a very complex nose that takes on a feminine, perfumy aspect. This is precise is precise focused and perfectly balanced. The fruit is lovely red raspberry toned with a hint of astringe...

Excellent CA Cab from a "wine consultant" responsible for many of the insanely priced CA Cult Cabs. See http://www.melkawines.com/assets/upload/files/Los_Angeles_Times_Napa_s_go_to_virtuoso.pdf for an interesting read on how he meticulously runs a vin...

being a suavignon blanc afficianado, i believe this wine (and maybe dog point) are the two best SB values available in the US this year from any region. like all the NZ SB's, its closure is screw-cap and any bottle will last 3 to 4 days in the fridge w...
The Wine Spies Say: DEAL ALERT! Today we are very pleased to bring you a very special value – on a very small quantity of wine. Today’s wine, a fantastic Syrah from winemaker Stephen Pessagno, pleases us on so many levels. With the holidays coming soo...

July 5th. We’re halfway through 2013 and what has changed? What have we learned?Not terribly much most likely. One thing I have learned is that when someone writes that someone else has “Nailed It!” we’re probably wasting time talking about the same old crap. The validity of the 100 point scale.The effectiveness of social media.Or even better: H... Read More
Freemark Abbey was actually quite good back in the late '60s, all through the '70s and into the '80s. They were even included in the 1976 Judgment of Paris where they took 10th place, amongst some very heavyweight competition. Will post those results, fully expecting the formatting to go awry... ;-( For the reds, then the whites:RankGradeWineVin... Read More
Here’s an article that had a slim chance of being written. Pull together a case of wine from a vintage that is deemed passable at best and drink them at 33 years of age. I mean what the hell do you expect to find?How about:People, even the experts don’t know much.What is written about older vintages is a pile of steaming supposition.We are just ... Read More
As the holiday season bears down on us it’s worth taking some time to make sure that you’re doing everything you can to maximize the effects of your in-store displays. While we all love helping our customers, clear throat now, when you get swamped during the holidays, often with customers that you only see once or twice a year, you know you’re g... Read More
I'm not dure I understand what your asking, BB. From your title it seems that you cannot find information on the bottle that identifies it. However, the label is readable and contains about all the information you might need. So, I'm guessing that you are asking about the various nomenclatures that you see on the label. I am not really an ex... Read More
I am a very casual wine drinker and just "won" a bottle of sparkling wine in a family gift exchange from my cooky, eccentric aunt that I can't identify anywhere. I'm not sure if it is good or bad, past it's prime or just an okay bottle I can feel comfortable drinking for no particular occasion.I have attached a picture, but the label reads as f... Read More
My brother-in-law is a truly great guy. He is the kind of person who makes friends wherever he goes.Recently, he helped the family of a screen writer dispose of the assets of the writer's estate. A month or so ago, the family entertained him in Las Vegas. At dinner one night they brought out some pretty amazing wines (Bordeaux 1st Growths) fr... Read More
I'm heading to LA for a dinner with Numanthia on Thursday June 14th, hopefully I'll see some of you there, but if anyone is up for dinner on the day either before or after that day let me know. I'm making plans soon so I just want to line something up before b uying the tickets! Read More
April 11, 2012 — Two full-time bankers and part-time wine collectors hope to raise up to $50 million for their wine investment firm, according to Bloomberg. The Wine Trust, formed in 2010 by Brian Mota, 38, and Timothy Clew, 40, buys wine to keep prices down and secure significant supply of the most coveted wines in the world. The trust works l...

Syrah gets no respect. This versatile grape just has too many things working against it for it to really go mainstream.Consider that one of its greatest attributes is that it sometimes smells like meat, black pepper and olives, and you know we’ve lost more than half the market right there. On the other hand, much Syrah has been made in a very fr... Read More
