Write a description for this store.
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...
|Winery:||Mutt Lynch Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Dry Creek Valley|
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:||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...
|Winery:||Drylands Estate Winery|
|Region:||New Zealand » Marlborough|
Pale yellow with slightly greenish tinge. As soon as the glass gets near your nose, the little hairs start to curl with the tartness coming from the glass. Green apple and chalk along with the barest whiff of honey are sensed upon the nose. On the pala...
|Region:||Italy » Alto Adige » Alto Adige - Südtirol|
Nice light golden color. Good fruity nose. Very smooth. First sip is quite pleasing. Almost a slight effervescent sense to it. Smooth and easy on the tongue, not too harsh or biting. Transitions quite nicely into a subtle finish. Not to acidic, not to ...
|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...
|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...
|Winery:||Brick House Vineyards|
|Region:||USA » Oregon » Willamette Valley|
A very high acid wine, which makes sense given the growing location. Paired well with pork and corn and pasta. Notes of sour cherry and truffle with a white pepper finish
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma Valley|
Deep and briary on the nose with ripe black cherry and plum fruit streaked with hoisin and balsamic notes This opens a little meaty on the palate with blue/purple fruit and hints of black pepper spice. Definitely a big but well balanced wine that packs...
|Region:||Italy » Veneto » Valpolicella » Amarone Della Valpolicella Classico|
Dark rich and spicy on a nose filled with macerated herbs, mint, licorice,a little VA. In the mouth this is a big wine, bright and juicy on the palate, still fairly closed but you can sense the wild berry fruit with hints of pomegranate, chocolate, and...

This is the 2014 Clayhouse Adobe White, which is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc from Paso Robles. This wine is a nice, enjoyable crisp, aromatic dry fruity white wine which tastes like a cross between a white Loire, and a white Rhone, which makes perfect sense, given the varietals in the blend. It's currently being cl... Read More
D: Criminal law is not an interest of big firms, except white collar. Most people accused of crimes are not wealthy. Also too hard to market to--repeat business in transactional law with corporations (whose managers--occasionally the white collar criminal clients -- aren't paying out of their pocket and therefore less concerned about fees) is ...

'After the newbies left'; I like that. No sense in wasting excellent wine on someone that cannot yet appreciate it. So RC, that Cabernet Sauvignon from Coonawarra looks like it has a picture of Trump taking a golf swing on the label. I do see that it's a cricket bat and of course Trump has a much wider ass, but my first impression was Trump! Read More
According to the Wine Institute, in 2015, eighty-three percent of wine from the United States was made from grapes grown in California. Clearly, the world wine stage has welcomed California bottles with opened arms. Wine lovers from around the world clamor for access to California wines. They journey to the state’s many celebrated regions with g... Read More
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
OK, this may be dated info, but just read about some Portuguese (at that time, Spanish now--the town has belonged to both countries at various times in its history and currently is Spanish, though right on the border) wines that seem to have been truly compelling:"Pipes of wine had been rolled into the streets, tapped by driving the heads in, an...

WS wrote about it a few days ago.http://www.winespectator.com/webfeature/show/id/Laurent-Ponsot-Leaves-Family-Burgundy-Domaine"Ponsot did not reveal why he has split from his family domaine. But one Burgundy insider told Wine Spectator that a sale of the domaine could now be in the offing: "As a minority shareholder, you could get a regular divi... Read More
I've only had the Aligote and CdlR. We talked about the Aligote and it was an interesting call by Laurent to in the end make it 100% Aligote, but I think that's what makes Laurent one of the icons of Burgundy, (at least from foreign observers) is that he's different. He's notorious for picking late, which has worked great at times in cooler vint... 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
Esteemed wine critics like Robert Parker and Antonio Galloni employ gender-positive terms in their tasting notes without compunction. Masculine wines are commonly associated with structure and power, while feminine wines can be perceived as delicate and thin. Speaking about a trip to the Bandol region in the Financial Times, wine writer Jancis R... 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.
