Wine by the Bay
HUGE nose (was filling the room within 10 minutes): Black Currant, Blackberry, Mushroom, Green Pepper, Bay Leaf, Mint, Cocoa, Cigar Box and a little Strawberry to tie it all together. Taste was primarily fine tobacco together with a bit of camphor and ...

|Varietal:||Verdelho , Viozinho , Rabigato|
60% old vine vineyard field lend, 40% Touriga nacional Smokey and fairly oaky on the nose with a nutty and expensive aroma. A big wine on entry, round and rolls into the mouth like the changing tide. There are great acids supporting a bright juicy b...
|Region:||Italy » Abruzzi » Montepulciano d'Abruzzo|
A touch stemmy on the nose which shows a hint of pencil lead and quite perfumed bay leaf aromas. Smooth, a touch matte and with a hint of richness on the palate, this delivers a nice mouthful of slightly spicy black cherry fruit supported by lovely aus...

Fairly intense aromatically, showing off lots of caramelly toasted oak aromas along with paprika and raw beefy accented red berry fruit topped with some bay leaf and oregano . This is smooth, firm and slightly dense in the mouth. It’s filled with polis...

Smoy and lightly caramelly on the nose with lots of darkly jammy blackberry fruit and hints of both dates and pomegranate with a dusting of white pepper as a top note. Smooth as wool on entry, a little fuzzy but ultimately plush and friendly with a big...

|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Alexander Valley|
Smells a bit stony then deeply earthy with a bit of sweet oak tempered by a dried rose petal notes, some red licorice tones and a bit of café au lait. Lovely deep blackberry, boysenberry fruit here with a touch of vanilla and bay leaf that adds a hint ...

|Region:||USA » California » San Luis Obispo County » Paso Robles|
Really I was joking when I told my girlfriend Susie the other night that I could get at least a hundred bucks for this wine on eBay. She looked at me wryly, "really?" and pop went the cork. I was cooking up some of the Halibut that Susie had caught las...
|Winery:||Lange Estate Winery & Vineyards|
|Region:||USA » Oregon » Willamette Valley|
A hint of nutty smokiness greets the nose followed by handful of dirty, freshly dug herbs. This smells powerful and savory with a slightly roasted base note of strawberries with a hint of pomegranate seed and orange pith. This enters the mouth with dec...

We flew out west in early March (04 March 2017) to continue our annual wine tasting / visiting trips with relatives and friends. The hotels and other places to stay were all set, but the wineries on the visit list were not totally determined in advance. We planned two days of tasting in the Willamette Valley (McMinnville, Oregon) and two days ... Read More

I was wondering how many forum members plan to watch the Superbowl this Sunday (05 Feb 2017) and of that subset, will anyone be drinking beer instead of wine? Read More
While going through my grandmother's basement, we found 2 cases of wine. The first, 1978 Liebfraumilch Qualitatswein (with black pieces floating in it and an internet search that deemed it garbage even when bottled), and the second, Paul Masson Monterey County Chardonnay 1978 (Second Bottling). I've not been able to find anything out about the l... Read More
When you get to two kids and some gear, side trips to Joshua or whatever going our way to yours, then I-5 is a necessary evil. Recently friends have done LA from SF by flying and using Uber and some light rail. Doing it the other way--flying to SF or Oakland and using BART, Uber, and the like is easier still. It's those Napa/Sonoma/Marin jaunt... Read More
D, just didn't want the post to go overly long, and with the rhinovirus, I couldn't be completely fair. But here's a thumbnail:Wife and I split an app and a main. App was an octopus dish, which is one of those things I can't really do at home well, so I look for it when out. If octopus is done well, it's amazing, but badly done it's rubbery a... Read More
November 28 update:We were back in Amador County for Thanksgiving. (Puppy bonding took precedence over family this year, so we left the Bay Area to get away from everyone.) While there we stayed at Rest, A Boutique Hotel. Rest is owned by Tracey and Mark Berkner, who met while working for Marriott. He's a chef, but moved to the operational si... Read More
Hello all,I'm not actually a beginner in wine preparation. I started preparing wine 3 months ago. I've tasted different varieties of wine and my favorite is Merlot wine. I had a doubt earlier on how to store the prepared wine. I searched many sources and asked many friends and I happened to read an article yesterday which had tips to properly s... Read More
