Write a description for this store.
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:||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...
|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:||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:||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:||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:||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 » 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...
|Winery:||Finca Las Moras|
|Region:||Argentina » San Juan » Tulum Valley|
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.

Bits and pieces of disconnected research have been reported over the last couple of decades that seem to a priori be predicated on the fact that females smell more competently than males, and then purport to having proven that 'fact' in the study they present. Unfortunately, those I've seen do not really prove all that much, other than, for exam... Read More
When I first saw the announcement that China was calling for international winemakers to come to Ningxia back in 2012 I was intrigued. However, being 7 months pregnant at the time and about to begin a job transition, it didn’t seem like the timing was on my side. This year, when I saw that Ningxia was once again asking for international winemake... Read More
Interesting to see my comments from a few years ago. Definitely would have responded a little differently today, and I haven't had a Pinotage since that time in 2012 or 2013! But it was fresh in my mind at the time, and made as good of sense as anything at the time. Read More

Heading off to big bear this afternoon...packing a few wines. Least excited about the Oregon Pinot, though part of that is due to haphazard storage, it's been passive in my kitchen for some months. Bringing it for a friend on the trip anyhow. Hearing the buzz about Sylvain Pataille in a real way, so excited to try the Marsannay Blanc. He has som... Read More
I was recently challenged to find a wine that would match a delicate dessert and continue to drink well into those lazy, mellow moments that follow every memorable meal. There were several contenders but I went for Demi-Sec Champagne. Controversial I know but most Houses produce Demi-Sec including Moet et Chandon, Taittinger, Veuve Clicquot, Lan... Read More
Red, it's context: Pinot is supposed to deliver a certain kind of flavor, aroma, mouthfeel, and, for me, none of that is there with Meiomi. I wouldn't bash it if I didn't try it. (I didn't really bash it so much, either, just said it wasn't much like PN to me and wasn't very enjoyable.) Big commercial wines: Well, define that. A lot of goo... Read More
Funny Fox. And good addition to the thread.Not from Emark though!!!!Actually he's right. I used to buy Buehler and a few others and they're still around $20. Steltzner was another one. And at the end of the valley, Monticello. I've visited all those guys a few times and they're kind of old-timers in a sense. But Steltzner sold out - kept the nam... Read More
OT, don't give Al such a hard time. Look at how far he's come. He started two threads here--Weekend WInes and Weekday WInes--with the implication that week days were not suitable for "special" wines. Now, he's popping $70 wines on Fridays.Al's response was one that might have come from a trained economist. The $70 is spent. There's no sense... Read More
I am wondering if you spray your grapes with any pesticides....like Round Up? I love your wine and I was just reading a GMO article and it mentioned that it is best to buy organic wines since they are not sprayed with toxic harmful pesticides...so do you all use Round Up? Read More
