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...

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...

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
Very good list.Chateau St Michelle and Columbia Crest are sister wineries, CC a couple of bucks less usually but both good quality for the price. That Willamette Valley PN is one of the few that I would ever buy - it's actually pretty good but it's vintage-specific so if you don't like one, you can look for a different vintage. It can run up to ... Read More
Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More
I've had this in my possession for awhile now and don't know a whole lot about wine; is there anything special about this wine? Read More
