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...

The wine has an intense deep ruby color. Surprises in the nose with its intensiveness and complexity of dominant barrique flavors (vanilla, butter toast) with fruit aromas (blackberry, red cherries) and a sense of sweet plum marmalade. In mouth holds w...
|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...

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...

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...

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...

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 ...

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.

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:||Italy » Sicily » Sicilia Igt|
Grapefruit and guava greet the nose followed by nutty, barrel aged chardonnay like tones. This is tense and focused on the nose with those tropical tones but no sense of over-ripeness or overt sweetness. Round, lush and very creamy on entry with stone...

EM - We need to get together sometime and compare our wives - they are each unique in their own way and I think we have both developed our sense of humor around our spousal units (that's from SNL, I'm sure you knew that however). I would like to attend a Mormon wedding as long as I could leave early if necessary. Sandra and I enjoy trying out ... Read More
Yep. It's that unintentional irony that irritates me about his writing in general. He can be OK when he sticks to the facts, but even there half the time he makes inane comments. Years ago he visited some small cafe in Italy and marvelled that they just brought out what we'd consider juice glasses and poured their house wine into those. His writ... Read More
Excellent comments, Greg. Being the egocentric that I am, I picked out the segments that matched my experience and concluded that it must be true. On the other hand, he cites rescearch from Cornell. It would be interesting to read what those research findings actually were.Some years ago I accompanied my wife on one of her working trips. I r... Read More

Some United States wine buyers are subject to hefty tariffs. Others can hold onto more of their hard earned cash. Can you guess which state gets the most take from your bottle purchases? The results may surprise you.According to a Tax Foundation study, the tax code varies not only by state but also by alcohol level. Alcohol level is directly pro... Read More
There’s nothing quite like having wine friends. After all, our mutual topic of interest is a social lubricant. But there’s so much more to it, as Snooth’s recent blogger trip will attest. Earlier this month we had the opportunity to explore one of the country’s oldest and up-and-coming wine regions: Lodi, California. It still amazes me that a si... Read More
