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:||Argentina » Mendoza|
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:||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...
|Region:||Chile » Colchagua Valley|
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...
|Region:||Australia » South Australia » Mclaren Vale|
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 ...

|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...

When Tony and Herta (H.B.) purchased their 30-acre Rutherford property in 1982, the vineyard grounds were wild and overgrown. Through passion and hard work, the Peju family has transformed their Rutherford Estate into Peju—a wine, architecture, and art lover’s paradise. Today, 30 years later, Peju remains a family-owned and family-run estate win... Read More
Historically, agricultural pickers of any product are paid by volume (boxes of lemons and avocados, bags of walnuts, boxes of greenbeans and artichokes, etc., etc., etc.) rather than an hourly. Different, of course, for people back processing at the plant (winery). And I'm not talking about different areas of agriculture like combine harvesting ... Read More
It’s not what you think it is, and I’m not sure what the producers think it should be. What it should be is a light wine, something really fresh and pretty, but at other times a bit darker with a lacy tannic appeal and subtle floral, mineral and spicy perfumes framing a gorgeous core of dark cherry fruit. It’s a wine that is decidedly at home in... Read More

While there are some tastings I do not look forward to each year, there are others that I can’t wait for. For the most part that means things like Barolo and northern Rhone Syrah, but it also includes the greatest set of value wines I get to sample each year; inexpensive Portuguese red wines!Now, admittedly that’s a pretty broad category of vino...

We tend to spend an awful lot of our time running around looking for things. We look for the greatest wines, within our budgets of course, and we look for the perfect wine for ribs, greek salad, or whatever it is we like to eat, and we seek out the greatest value wines on a regular basis. That last search can a get a little silly. Often we’re lo... Read More
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 austere little tannins. Its not a complex wine but one that shows off good purity and intensity to... Read More
Well, now I am intrigued by your pouty winemaker. He sounds very passionate, and it would be great to spend a few hours with him. Sadly, for me, not great enough to want to travel that far. :-(I had no problem with Celebrity, as I said I enjoyed my cruise experience (15-day West Coast of South America, through the Panama Canal to Florida) w...

I am always interested in learning more about wine and enjoy talking to vintners, sommeliers, and fellow winos. Read More
