  • Can we talk about "gaminess" in wine for a second?  It's basically saying it tastes savory, but not like beef so much.  So it tastes more like the kinds of meats we (or some of us) hunt, like rabbit, venison, maybe boar, lamb if it's older (aka mutton) and it usually suggests a roasted note.  It's just a nuance of savory, meaty flavors; not very...

Who knew Heavens Gate was located in Provence, France where these grapes were grown?Primarily Grenache with a smidge of Vermentino and Cinsault. Bright salmon in color with... Read More

  • Quinta Do Crasto Douro Reserva 2007


    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.

  • You've heard the experts calling for magnums of Rosé to be poured ... quickly re-calibrated her wine sense, pointing out that orange wines aren't actually made from oranges but have their hue because winemakers allow the wine's white grapes to stay in contact with their skins during the production process. So there she was, amid Brooklyn's win...

  • British Airways is making a case for being a purveyor of fine wine at 30,000 feet.  The London-based airline picked up a few awards at the Cellar in the Sky Awards earlier this year. To get a sense of how the airline chooses its wine and how that wine gets from the earth to the vine and finally to the storage compartments of commercial airliners... Read More
