Write a description for this store.
A great petite sirah from Mutt Lynch winery. The color and aroma are excellent and entice you to want to taste the wine. Then when you do finally taste the wine it does not disappoint, I enjoyed how it had a sense of fruit beyond what I normally expe...
|Winery:||Quinta do Crasto|
|Region:||Portugal » Douro|
This acclaimed Douro Tinto was purchased some years back (perhaps 5 years ago). The strength of the wine has not really diminished much with age - there is a hint of oak on the nose, a deep, deep red colour and a strong scent of cherries and anise. T...

I love BBQ, and this syrah exhibits all of its best qualities. Smoke and baked cherries highlight this very nice wine. Kudos to Lodi & nice job 6th Sense.
|Winery:||Louis M. Martini Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Napa|
A true cab in every sense of the word. I've never seen a wine so true to its varietal. However, it made me sleepy.Put me to bed like a kitten every night.
|Region:||Argentina » Mendoza » Lujan de Cuyo|
With this number, the Mendoza Bodega Norton has come up with a clear winner in both quality and value. We have a deep, dense and powerful wine dominated by the plummy, blackcurrant flavors of the 3 principal cepages used in the blend. The Malbec lend...
|Winery:||Willamette Valley Vineyards|
|Region:||USA » Oregon » Willamette Valley|
I had this wine at their tasting room. It is my understanding that this is actually a bit of a historic wine, in the sense that Tualatin is one of the oldest vineyards in the Willamette with small blocks of vines originally planted back in 1971. I thou...
|Winery:||Craggy Range Vineyards Ltd|
|Region:||New Zealand » Hawke's Bay|
An area of New Zealand worth watching that's for sure. It and Central Otago are prime wine areas. A delightful nose that reminds me more of schisty French chards than anything else. With lemon, nuttiness, some apple, slight oak, a chalky on the nose fl...
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Russian River Valley|
Very fresh and complex on the nose with complex notes of dried citrus zest, chalk, smoke, mineral and slightly balsamic tones. In the mouth this medium weight wine shows a certain sense of restraint but offers up layers of dried orchard fruits and exot...
|Region:||Italy » Veneto » Valpolicella » Valpolicella Classico Superiore|
|Varietal:||Corvina , Rondinella , Molinara|
Dark cherries, earthy and sense of soil on the nose and palate; full bodied, nice tannins and acidity with long finish. Lovely wine to enjoy with hearty Italian dish.
|Region:||Australia » South Australia » Barossa|
This is an intense wine that exudes big flavors of blackberry, chocolate and smoky oak. You'll sense aromas of rich, jammy black fruit and molasses with finishes of Asian spices. The texture is velvety and intense, full-bodied and powerful on the palat...

Agreed Amour. There's no harm to it and often a nice upside.D - I didn't say they didn't evolve together, just that they were never developed together intentionally. Think about it. Most wine we know today is maybe a hundred or a hundred and fifty years old. In the late 1800s, Barolo was sweet, Bordeaux was putting out clear wines from Malbec an... Read More
EM - Great job figuring that out. Yes, it makes sense now and he grabbed a Meritage in place of a Syrah, although we were still charged the $26 for the glass. I guess I must now seek out the Syrah and get a taste of it too. Just got home from watching the grand kids up at Tyson's Corner mall; third day in a row and I've about had enough for a... Read More
I have always been a bit bewildered with posted tasting notes that mention descriptors that I have never heard of (e.g. Calcite); mention things that I have no interest in tasting ( e.g. Tar) or mention the ability to differentiate and taste in that wine various types of fruits or flowers that are very similiar in taste or smell. These kinds of ... Read More
Let's break it down.1. Most people are bad writers.2. People who write about wine are a subset of most people.3. It is unlikely that only the best writers are interested in wine.4. Therefore, people who write about wine must include many bad writers.Now, what is the point of tasting notes? Some possibilities:1. To say "look at what I am drinking... Read More
I was wondering if I could get some feedback on an article I wrote about recently entitled Tasting Notes Are Broken.

I know what you’re thinking: When are we gonna start drinking wine? We’re getting closer, I promise you, but today I just want to run through some of the pros and cons of different styles of glassware!After getting your wine out of the bottle (and perhaps into a decanter) at the proper temperature, serving it in the proper glass is probably the ...

Makes sense in that context re: Brewer Clifton. Sta Rita Hills is home to some surprisingly good Chardonnay (Liquid Farm opened my eyes to that a few years ago). Read More
Full-bodied, very smooth with a "spice" or kick to it that is a little foreign to the palate when you think of Chianti. Not the most complex wine in the world, but interesting enough to linger with you long after your glass is empty. Highly acidic but extremely refreshing in every sense of the word. I cannot speak to the older vintages, but I wa... Read More
As I sat with Josh Jensen in his winery office at Calera, we looked down at SLH and Mr. Jensen called it what I have always thought it should be called: The Santa Lucia Lowlands. It's really a benchland above the valley floor, but it's not a highland in any real sense. The highest vineyard is 1200 feet above sea level. And that's just one--mo... Read More
Definitely my 2016 Pinot Noir of the year, probably favorite domestic wine of 16' crafted by none other than Mike Smith. Had honestly written off the Ancillary project as likely to be more over ripe, cola'd Pinot's entering the market, but there's that saying "don't knock it til' you try it", and that proved to be the case here. Knowing that Mik... Read More

I love to support a small, local wine shop. Wine Sense has never let me down. The owner and his staff are knowledgeable and have recommended some wonderful wines. I enjoy sharing these finds with friends. Buying a case makes economic sense.
