Write a description for this store.
A simple pleasure--fruit-forward in the best sense, with aromas and flavors of leather, plums, vanilla, and spice. MSRP is $12, so it's a good deal for the wine.
|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...
|Region:||Spain » Rioja|
This is super aromatic with spicy, toasty French oak notes on the nose along with vanilla, sandalwood, cherry licorice and a hint of citric green anise seed. Smooth, rich and just a touch soft in the mouth, this manages to retain a certain sense of del...
|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 » Umbria » Colli Martani|
Aromas of waxy, dried fruit pop from the glass followed by spicy herbal notes of mint and sage all floating above a tense base of peppery white fruit. A touch of trapped CO2 adds a prickle tot eh tongue as this shows off rather restrained flavors of wh...
|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...
|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...
|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:||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.

Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year. With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year. And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win... Read More
To celebrate the. Buck hanging in my garage from this morning' hunt, I decided to be brave and saber the 25 year old Cooks that was recently found in my basement. Yep Cooks, you heard that correct. Plenty of pressure and a clean break. Nice bubbles and a golden almost not quite pinkish hue. Very earthy with a hint of cranberry. I like it. Cheap ... Read More
Kathy,When your friend takes you and orders the wine, try to not look at the bottle. Have it opened and poured without knowing what it is. Take a good couple of deep sniffs and think about what you're smelling. Take a sip and let it get all over your tongue, swallow it and again think about what sensations you're getting and try to detect som... Read More
Hello all,I'm not actually a beginner in wine preparation. I started preparing wine 3 months ago. I've tasted different varieties of wine and my favorite is Merlot wine. I had a doubt earlier on how to store the prepared wine. I searched many sources and asked many friends and I happened to read an article yesterday which had tips to properly s... Read More
Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

This 1999 vintage Champagne from Boizel evokes a sense of Christmas past on the nose with baked apple and just a hint of spice with a good spritz of orange flesh and rind. The mousse is quite strong and lasts for about 10 minutes or so before dissipating. Entry is demi-sec, with nice baked apple (again) with mandarin orange and cinnamon bark on ... Read More
DMCKER - Your hope is mine to a degree. The truth is that the Dems can stop the process in the Senate because of the 60 vote mandate. They'll have to be bartered with by the guys across the isle and hopefully cooler heads will prevail.I've not seen anything that Trump has proposed that has plussed me except for his statement on infrastructure a...

BLM, I was basically wondering about distance of shots, and I think the stories of solid bullet hunting for turkeys were probably driven by overweening pride in accuracy by the speaker, though if you could find a bird at rest downrange at some distance it seemed to make sense. Talk was of not hitting them center mass, but like when I was using t... Read More
