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...

|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...
|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.

Hello all,I'm new here and a beginner as far as wines go. I have one (full unopened 750 ml) bottle of 1982 Chateau Lafite Rothschild that I'd like to sell and am seeking the best way to do so without being taken advantage of. Can anyone offer any assistance or advice?I'm located in Arizona and would prefer a face to face buyer if possible but no... Read More
Partridge, grouse and woodcock were the other birds I later hunted after my first four. Woodcock are small but tasty. ;-)Bear can be surprisingly good but also can be horrid--all depends on what it's been eating, not that I've ever gone out of my way to chase it down during any part of my life. What I've eaten has kinda fallen in the pot. That ... Read More

Sounds like storage was good for all. Did everyone else provide a few bottles each as you did? Any info about how they've acquired and stored the bottles? Always worrisome when you see labels like the Faively's, but then I've had TBAs, etc. from the Mosel and Rhein with far worse labels that were in great shape after 50 years--they just were sto...

You guys know that I'm always one to push the limits. In fact, I like to grab life by the pu##y.....er....let me rephrase that....I like to enjoy pairing wine with politics and things of this nature. Anyone who knows me might not realize I am better with wine/event pairings than with wine/food pairings. So, with that being said, I need to pai... Read More
Well you did good to try it a little later. All the GGs are picked at Spatlese level and then fermented dry. For me it's of more academic interest than anything else and I'd probably have done what you did - wonder WTF and put the wine away. Good thing you got back to it in full control of your faculties!It's kind of weird though isn't it - the ... Read More
The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More
Was in the mood to open some wine yesterday, reaching for a red but then my wife chimed in, asking for a Riesling. As I didn't especially care to open one I offered a Hungarian white (Zsoke I believe) that was unfortunately corked, so then decided I'd better reach for the Riesling. In so doing, I had assumed it was a basic Schafer Frolich Spatle... Read More
