Earthy with the wood from barrel ageing immediately apparent on the nose. It’s well integrated adding resiny, sweet and smoky nuances to the nose but obvious and slightly more pronounced than the ripe pear and green floral notes that emerge in the glas...

50/50 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. 30% barrel fermented some some malo-lactic fermentation. Blended from 12 lots. This wine received 92 points from the Wine Spectator and 94 from Wine Enthusiast. It's a delicate wine, with a lemony cream nose. T...

Tasted at the 2010 Zap wine festival and I only captured the numeric rating. I’ll have to taste again to get more detailed notes. (Barrel)
|Winery:||Cordero di Montezemolo|
|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
On the nose this is marred by some dirty barrel notes but still managed to show an impressively intense array of floral, tobacco, and ivy laced aromas that are savory and rich. Smooth and polished on entry, then turning pleasantly plump in the mouth w...

2008 Pinot Gris: Barrel fermented, grapefruit & lemons are what dances around your nose. Grapes are from Selah and Naches Heights. This is a dry and very unique wine, great with fish, salad and anything from the sea.
|Region:||Argentina » Rio Negro|
It has a red ruby color and oOn the nose blackberry and coriander (more spices) appear to make this a really pleasant wine. With 12 month on french oak barrel spices continue to expand on the mouth, appearing some leather and some mineral taste-like fi...

Purchased on sale during the Barrel Tasting weekend, this wine shows the usual remarkable Siduri fruit density, with bing cherry and plum fruit on top of a strong chocolate/charcoal core. Silky in texture, very ripe feeling in the mouth and finish. Ple...
|Winery:||Domaine des Crêtes|
|Region:||France » Languedoc-roussillon » Vin de Pays d'Oc|
|Varietal:||Roussanne , Marsanne|
a full, rounded little number. A richness initially with citrus/lemon flavours, tempered by a nice slew of acidity and a herb-dominated finish. A little barrel-fermentation adds an interesting complexity. Not the most complex or textural wine but an ab...

A wonderful 100% Chardonnay. Palate has a richness that is quite delicious, barrel fermented, lovely texture, a big wine with elegance and structure. Touch of ripening strawberry to the flavour. Delicious. http://www.spittoon.biz/artisan_vine_londons_...
|Winery:||Kumeu River Wines Ltd|
|Region:||New Zealand » Auckland » Kumeu|
A bit woody on the nose with lots of nutty, toasty, barrel-fermented elements. Very fine in the mouth, with a firm acid spine and a touch of wood tannin helping to fill out what otherwise is a fairly faceted wine. The fruit comes off as a bit simple he...

Just back from Chablis with a few thoughts. The first is that the Chablisienne should try and find another name for Petit Chablis. I often hear wine enthusiasts say it’s “Chablis that didn’t make the grade”, “from young vines or poor vineyards”. Sadly, this is not surprising as the name does suggest an inferior wine but after two days of tasting... Read More
Fridays are good out here in Virginia, as long as you get your butt moving after the morning traffic but before the evening work traffic. Yesterday started out with both of us having our blood tested after fasting 12 hours, then a nice breakfast at the Silver Diner. Upon returning home, I rode my Harley Fatboy over to my massage appointment an... Read More
The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More
Every wine producing country has strengths and weaknesses, some more than others. Chile has many high points that make it a go-to country when looking for outstanding wine. The number of unique regions that feature diverse soil types and microclimates is simply astounding. Chile has three thousand miles of coastline north to south as well as mou... Read More
Jcos, welcome to the Snooth Forum. Congratulations, also, on finding this trhead at the bottom of the barrel. :-)Unless your stored your wine in a kitchen cabinet above the range, it should be fine. Dessert wines have a very long life expectancy--decades.In our household, we enjoy dessert wine with fruit and cheese plates. Apples and pears ar... Read More
White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More
I'd use the barrels for parties. They work just fine within that time frame (sherry casks for whisky or brandy fine, too, over much longer time frame). Have had wine served several times that way, indoors, outdoors at private venues, as well as at commercial wine and beer cellar restaurants across Europe. Yeah if you want to drink a barrel over ...

The very rich are (or do live) very different(ly) from you and me. Here's a rumpus room where you can have the craft beer or wine (or spirit) of your choice on tap from the barrel. Owners of this property would have no problem having their wine from Jonata or anyone else in the area delivered by the barrel rather than the bottle... Read More
Agreed on Riserva, and non-Riserva. I'm not really as interested in the extra aging or official qualifications, just that if the producer is deciding to bottle a regular and a riserva, the riserva is typically a better, or more highly regarded wine due to the cru, blocks within the cru, barrel select, etc. They all have their story I'm sure, and...

The past couple nights I have followed this Agharta Exhibit C. Seeing I went in on a library offer of this from Garagiste last month I figured no time like the present to take a look before it arrives. Whenever that will be.Based on this bottle they can take their time because it is still stuffed in all directions. I wouldn't open this unless yo... Read More
