Dark cherries, earthy and sense of soil on the nose and palate; full bodied, nice tannins and acidity with long finish. Lovely wine to enjoy with hearty Italian dish.
|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.
|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:||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:||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...
|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...
|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:||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.

I'm curious: Do you order half bottles in restaurants, or ever purchase them for home consumption? I've started to notice them cropping up more frequently in my area (a wine bar just opened in my neighborhood that boasts a half-bottle option for nearly every wine on their list) -- and yet I always feel the urge to either order by the glass, or c...

Minerals, earth, hay and herbs accent the melon and crisp pear fruit on the nose. This is elegant from the get go with surprisingly deep and rich, honey tinged tropical fruit on the palate that remains nicely freshly. There is a nice soft edge to this but vibrant acids and a hint of minerality keep everything lively in the mouth. The wine build... Read More
This Syrah, achieves Garys objective in a big way. A big wine, from hillside fruit coming from the warmer Sage Canyon region of Napa, its got substantial alcohol (15.4%) and lower acidity compared to some of the cooler climate syrah we often drink. Balanced and by no means a fruit bomb, its a wine with an admirable sense of balance and really ni... Read More
With the weather warming up, but not quite in full summer mode (at least for most of us), I thought it would be a good time to take a look at some of the West Coast Chardonnay that has been arriving in the office lately. Chardonnay still rules the roost as far as white goes, and for good reason. It’s a prolific producer, and winemakers have fig... Read More
Blue fruit, grape and mineral on the nose. There is a decided sense of opulence about this fruity offering. Well balanced with a nice, but not a terribly long finish. Nice little wine. 91. Read More
I am taking a sommelier course. I find there are a lot of aromas that I honestly do not know what they smell like. Cedar, fruit that is real and not a synthetic bath and body works lotion, gooseberries, etc. I really would love to be able to familiarize myself with these scents. Unfortunately, the kits - I would want reds, whites and faults,... Read More
Dear friends,I need your help!I wonder what the precise meaning of the term "palate" is.If you use it according to the common sense, it should mean "the roof of mouth". But this area does not have any tasting buds at all, therefore, it should be irreverent to tasting wine.But I very often see people use the term in phrases something like "on the... Read More
See-through pinot-esque color. Strong alcohol heat on the nose. Tastes like chianti mixed with primitivo which makes sense considering the blend. Lots of sour fruit (cherry and cranberry) makes for a great food wine. Tastes exactly like Craisings. I would guess it is versatile but be safe and pair with marinara sauce based dishes. Read More
Welcome to The Grapevine! In this new weekly feature, we'll be asking our favorite experts the questions that really matter: how they fell in love with wine, what wine trend they'd love to see end, and what they'll be drinking on their deathbed. Jeff Lefevere, founder and editor of the award-winning site Good Grape: A Wine Manifesto, remo... Read More
There is an edge of terpene noticeable here at first that initially detracts from the nose but the rich core of slightly gamy fruit, redolent of sweet cherries, soon overtakes any sense of inadequacy here. The aromas are powerful and deep with chiseled mineral notes, clear and precise and offering complicating tones of espresso and black pepper ... Read More
