Earthy, savory, rich and complex on the nose with leather and peppery nuances framing a core of pure black currant fruit. Cool and seamless one entry, then this both fleshes out a bit and firms up nicely revealing lots of polished tannins are lurking u...

Enjoyed with seafood dinner at "Java Moon Cafe" (BYOB). Married well with the Tilapia. Good, inexpensive wine to accompany a light meal. 
|Region:||Australia » South Eastern Australia|
Brushy and slightly herbal on the nose with faint aromas of red fruits and smoky oak lending this some aromatic complexity. A touch sweet at first, then quite bright and rather lightly textured in the mouth. this is a decidedly fresh and juicy Shiraz w...

This is an elegant monster requiring patience on the palate and airing of at least an hour and a half. The nose opens to a luxurious array of dark berries, cherry, coffee, dark chocolate, earth, tar, graphite, and pepper. At uncorking, the palate lau...

Firstly this is Jose Pastor for under 12 bucks! That alone should make it worth popping the cork. But after you taste it, you won’t care who the negociant was. Certainly this is a budget bottle, but man does it deliver for 12 bucks! All the typical...

|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Montalcino|
I thought about pouring this one through the aerator, but instead just let it breathe for an hour before tasting. The nose is quite complex, with a lot of different aromas going on that it almost makes you dizzy, there is a lovely smoky aroma that per...

Sometimes a difficult choice, and I have on occasion regretted not saying 'Hi' since when I do it often leads in interesting directions, like when twice sitting on a bar stool next to Virgin's founder, or unlocking a hotel door next to old slowhand, or finding myself on stripclub couches next to all sorts of rock or hoops stars, finding myself a...

MY FIRST VISIT TO BERN'S STEAKHOUSE - Tampa (4/8/2017)Like any true wine geek when I was informed of a trade show in Tampa my first thought was "I'm making reservations at Bern's." I have friends who live in Tampa about 3 min from the restaurant so we hooked up for a fun three top. Rachel came recommended as a Somm so I requested her in advance.... Read More
DM - They are hard-core Christians. They spend most of Sunday in church activities. It's my understanding that many Christians voted for Trump because their church supported the Republican platform - more so before the primary, but they stuck with the Republican platform after Trump became the candidate. Continuing with yesterday's activities... Read More
Yeah! It is oyster season in my town. Pick a peck in about 30 min. Best oysters in the world. No bias, no kidding. Wine = anything that is white, dry, French, and Loire or Champagne with an exceptional Chardonnay or Chablis admitted, meeting of course the French criteria. Notice the "spikes". You will never see those on a restaurant oyster. The... Read More
I've seen the Cavallotto label over the years appearing plenty on-line, like on my facebook feed, but I've never thought to give the wines any attention myself until recently. Having started exploring Barolo with mainly the Mascarello's and Conterno's, I've slowly been trying other (lesser known) producers, and the experience has proven to be ve... Read More
Tonight we dined in the district again, this time at Grillfish prior to a presentation of music at the Phillips Museum by Anna Thorvaldsdottir (an Icelandic composer) performed by the International Contemporary Ensemble. Anna was there and they sat down with her following the performance and allowed several questions from the audience. And aft... Read More
I guess you see the good ideas and the bad ideas with Kickstarter. I backed a good idea last year, that cat cafe that opened in Washington DC. It's doing well and we love the kitty cats. Read More
It's funny I love giving wine as a gift! Valentines day, Christmas, Birthdays but wine can also be an in personable gift as well.Its awkward to wrap for the most gifted wrapper and lets face it those wine gift bags are ugly "clunky" and obvious.Finally we have a greeting card label for wine it's a gift wrap and card it one where you simply write...

Yes, welcome to the forum Estella. Many of us have enjoyed Ridge wines, and I was turned on to them by several of the wine forum members during a discussion of labels, as I like fancy labels but I'm really just suckered in by them. Ridge wines have plain labels but are loaded with information - like my head I suppose.Anyway, Sandra and I enjoy... Read More
One of the more fascinating facts is that Genova, under their Doge in the 1500s, adopted a new constitution that made them a satellite of Spain!Now, back to the bottle: The Italian for bottle is fiasco (or bottiglia, now more common). Used to be a restaurant in Maria del Rey with that name, and they explained the whole thing on the menu. Simil... Read More
