Quite possibly the perfect zin. Highly extracted, big fruit bomb. Almost sweet enough to mimic a late harvest zin. Light on the oak and the perfect BBQ wine.

Tonight we have the time change, where we get to lose an hour of sleep so that farmers in the 19th century would have more daylight to plant and harvest their crops, and apparently now it helps with greenhouse gas emissions or global warming or some ot...

Fruity and perfect. Yum.
|Winery:||Hermann J. Wiemer Vineyard|
|Region:||USA » New York » Finger Lakes|
Late harvest botrytised Riesling from the finger lakes. Sweet! Literally. 3.3% residual sugar (22.5% natural sugar at harvest) that overwhelms the acidity just a bit, but it is still a wonderful wine that pairs with a variety of dishes. Classic Rieslin...

Beginning to show signs of opening, revealing a touch of menthol with black spice notes, sweet black fruits, leather, and smoke. This shows some sweet raspberry fruit with real cut and a fine freshness. The wine evolves in the glass revealing a real el...

The nose is dark and firm, with black cherry skins, mineral Earth, and serious floral notes on top and a suggestion of spearmint. The palate is finessed, with great strength underneath, showing elegant red cherry, and raspberry, with Asian spice, and f...

J Lohr originally planted pinot noir in the 70's, but ripped them out after 5 years. Apparently they were old clones and back then no one really knew how to grow pinot too well. In 2002 they replanted 4 dijon clones on 2 rootstocks giving 8 different ...

Interesting idea this - an early muscat. It's got all the perfume and usual notes of muscat, but is not sweet as late harvest muscats usually are. This wine worked very well at a party, at dinner (especially thai food), and with light desert.

Tasted April 2008: The "Les Charmes" vineyard consistently produces some of the finest chardonnay wines from the southern Burgundy at an unbeatable price. Light straw colour, refined, extremely elegant bouquet and a clean taste with hints of white frui...

What do you get when you put together a rebel California winemaker with high-quality malbec grapes from a great harvest in Mendoza? The answer is a powerhouse of a New World wine, bursting with concentrated jammy flavor and hints of garam masala and cl...

I did not have time to add this comment on your WOTN, yesterday, but, because of you, OT, I have not opened a bottle of PS in over a year. The oldest I have is 2009, and I keep remembering your advice that it takes at least a decade for it to be ready--and I assume that means a decade of bottle age, not since harvest.So, if I stick to it, I won...

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

Today, just a few short days after returning from our west coast wine tasting vacation in Washington / Oregon, we headed out west (a short drive this time) to the middle of Virginia to pick up two wine club allocations at Boxwood and RdV. The wines we purchased are shown in the 'What did you buy' topic, so they aren't shown here, but my biggest... Read More

My big day mixing in the wine world as I've kind of helped break this news, owing to a friend of mine who is close to Laurent Ponsot. Same friend from the Netherlands who GregT and I tasted with in San Diego. Anyhow, Peter from WS contacted me this morning for info and I was able to speak with him right after he spoke to Laurent and before the s... Read More
Day 4, dry out day. So today was "supposed" to be a day to do some sight seeing or hiking or kayaking the Russian River, taking a break from wine tasting and getting the body chemistry back in sync. Best laid plans ... Actually we did pretty good sticking to the plan. Went to the Santa Rosa farmers market this morning to purchase some things fo... Read More

GregDean is a good bloke and yes does make some good wineUnfortunately history showed thatv too many of our winemakers were seduced by Parker Points which were awarded for high alcohol "fruit bombs" sadly it was not the fruit that was the problem it was the decision to harvest later to "engineer" high alcohol.The big problem we found with these ...
