|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Emilion|
Tasted February 2008: 1994 was not an easy vintage in Bordeaux. Pavie-Macquin managed to make a very serious wine, lacking charm and elegance for a Saint-Emilion, but with a lot of grip and strength in the bouquet as well as on the palate. I feel that ...

Lionheart Wines' Roaring Red is a very approachable blend of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and Mendocino Syrah. The wine is made to be drunk young with bright flavors and soft / medium tannins. The Syrah does a nice job of filling in the mid-palate ...
An unexpected offering from an unexpected place! This wine is made with grapes grown at Clam Bay Farm in Pender Island, BC. The grape variety is Siegerrebe, a german variety that is a cross between Madeline Angevine (a Loire variety) and Gewurztraminer...

Very berry with a voilet edge. Prunes and plum jam with vanilla and lavender. Rich and velvety with the continued notes of jam. A delightful full-bodied wine. A discovery from the new world, made by catalans. Very easy drinking. Matched tonight wi...
|Region:||USA » California » Napa|
This was dusty and ashy on the nose with light cherry fruit and hints of leather and tobacco. It retains a bright, juicy character and may be simple but is so fresh and simply enjoyable that this was a bit of a surprise. Even at the end of the night, a...
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza|
This is a delicious wine made from overly ripe grapes that give up extra sugar. The flavor is soft with lots of honey and a nose like wild blossoms. Great as an easy drinking wine by itself or after dinner.

This bottle of wine was part of a lot I bought from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/44411 . Cote-Rotie is an AOC created in 1940, although wine-making here goes back to at least the Romans, for red wines located on the west bank of the Rhone about 20 miles south of Lyon. The name roughly translates as 'roasted slope ' because the ... Read More
As you may know I love Zinfandel. I think it’s the greatest domestic wine produced in this country, both for its historic significance as well as for the exquisite expressions of variety and terrori that the great examples are capable of. As these great examples continue to become more expensive, many are above $40 now, certainly remaining good ... Read More
Napa Valley grape growers and winemakers wore out their worry beads in 2011. Rain came early, often and didn’t want to go away. It was a cool year as well, forcing winemakers to spend even more time walking the vineyards than usual. Napa Valley is accustomed to dry, warm, sunny growing seasons. It’s Cabernet Sauvignon wines are widely known for ... 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...

In a world where extremes are becoming the paradigms for perfection its a little surprising that one doesn’t hear much of the wines of Saxony. Strike that. One doesn’t hear anything about these wines. And that is not surprising because the production is tiny and the wines almost all consumed locally. But you should be hearing about these wines, ...

I bought two bottles of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/53910 for £25. Gevrey-Chambertin is an AOC created in 1936.although viticulture in the area goes back to at least the Romans. The AOC is for red wines only made of pinot noir from the commune of the same name and the neighbouring commune of Brochon on the Cote... Read More
There are some wines that even the pros can forget about. Wines that really never fail to wow when tasted but are too often missed or skipped over. Take Assyrtiko from Santorini for example. These are wines that never seem to really underperform. yes there is a range of quality and style, going from incredibly complex and detailed artisanal wine... Read More
Okay, I'm now in Chrome. I could be a convert, but I have hipster/techy friends that say Chrome uses all your computer's stuff, I don't even know what you call it, but it bogs it down?

I’ve been through this so many times before that it becomes rote. The differences between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio. Well, there really aren’t any, when we are referring to the grapes. One is the name in French while the other is the name in Italian. When it comes to the wines though, there remains some distinction, though that is disappearing... Read More
Well, I'm not dining as well as OT, tonight -- sandwiches made from left-over grilled tri-tip, although, I have made, if I do say so, a pretty darned good looking pasta salad to go with them (Mrs. EMark is at her folks house, tonight, and when she returns she is going to need massive doses of fermented grape juice, starting with Halcon Prado whi...
