Very enjoyable wine -- a fair bit of sediment, so best to let it sit for a few hours prior to opening. Ruby-rose hue and cherry on the nose. Wonderful balance and prominent notes of fresh raspberries. Red berry and stonefruit finish. A fantastic ...

Lindemans Bin 50 Shiraz 2004 5 April 2010 - This cheap basic aussi shiraz has been 5 years in my cellar. What a wonderful wine, did not believe a EUR 10,- wine could develop this well. Really gentle, but still full-bodied, and very well balanced. The ...

I admit to being somewhat of a scrounge at "bin end" sales and in a recent scrounge came across the well-respected Tahbilk Marsanne (vines date to 1927). This amazing value could not be passed up; unbelievably, the wine remains slightly backward but w...

This stuff is great and in many cases nearly as good as a vintage bottle. When dining out, I will usually go for a glass of Bin 27 or LBV over a vintage port unless I am sure the bar just opened a bottle from a good vintage or has a good wine preserva...

OT - That's a nice bottle of Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs; I would put it up on the mantle, except that you need to worry about an earthquake knocking it down.Ok, I've tossed the bottle into the recycle bin outside. It will be gone tomorrow - hope I made the right decision. Now you guys know why cleaning out the basement this past spring was su... Read More
Wow, that's a lot of replies in a short amount of time. Let me start by explaining my user name. I normally go by 'Big Al', as my oldest sister used to call me that when I was a little guy (early 1960's). In fact, she used to say, "Big Al, the kitties pal" because I loved cats back then and I still do. So that name was already used in these ... Read More
"Thanks for posting the Produttori's...was thinking about those Rabaja's, but they went fast."Why only them? There are plenty of other potentially great bottles in the list... "I guess folks like CA products"BTW, though this might better go in a syrah thread, I started the evening yesterday at an industry event--a birthday party for a company th... Read More
In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More
Dave, I understand only too well about the need to delay gratification on bottles stored in the States while you're off for extended periods of time in Asia (I still have bottles stored under my sister's house in Oakland in a roughed out semi-cellar that I wish I had my hands on for a get-together on this coming Monday). Exact parallel to my sit... Read More
Hi all!Hoping to wade into interesting wine talk (and food talk). Me, I've been seriously enjoying and exploring wine for just over 20 years. On the red side, right now I'm partial to wines from Spain and the Rhone valley, but other loves are Oregon pinots, really good Italian wines (yes, it's endless, but that's the fun), and wanting to try mu...

I was fortunate to be able to attends last weeks ZAP Experience. As you might know this year’s event differed from those in years past as the event was broken down into additional components. The trade and media portion of the Experience is now a discreet tasting, and the grand tasting has been broken out into sections, that took place on the g... Read More
Not only is Cabernet Sauvignon the most popular red wine, it’s also one that is best suited to gift giving. It’s a wine that everyone knows and understands. Big, rich and bold, it’s the archetype of red wines that is perfect for the cooler months that lie ahead. While Cabernet does get a bit of a bad rap as being ubiquitous, that doesn’t mean th...

Nose: pepper, spice? Acidic, astringent, strawberry flavor, lingering finish. Meatball wine, very dry. [From "Cabernet Sauvignon" at Bin 105, Lincoln NE, 19 October 2013.] Read More
So yesterday I had Port for the first time. Churchill, 20 yo. It was really good, smooth, buttery (if that's OK to describe port this way) , not too sweet. Any other ports you would recommend? Thanks, Read More
