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.

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...

Unfined and unfiltered, the Monument Tree isn’t a shy Pinot! Deep, complex, full in style but still managing to maintain a sense of elegance. The wine jumps out of the glass with a rich mix of cherries, dried cranberry and ripe plum. It isn’t all just ...

|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:||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...
|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...

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 ...
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma Valley|
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 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:||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...

As expected, the wine shows a few signs of ageing: It has a beautifully mellow, warm aftertaste, yet all of its ripe freshness and citrus and appely notes are still present. On the palate it has a very pleasant acidity that's just right and beautifully woven into a very pleasant smoothness, which works together very well with its light and a lit... Read More
I am not a mathematician but I wonder if there is a formula to obtain a value rate using price and scores (100/100). I.e. Wine A costs $20 and gets a score of 90 points and Wine B costs $45 and gets a score of 90 points as well; is there a formula that can tell me (mathematically) that the value of Wine A is higher?I am sure one of you may have ...

A wonderfully intriguing nose sets this apart from many Shiraz. There's the typical notes of fruit and spice but underlying it all is a taut floral note and the whole thing is just so well focused and balanced that I keep coming back for another sniff. That focus translates wonderfully to the palate where this achieve a wonderful sense of harmon... Read More
Is it possible for a corked wine to develop to something enjoyable through decanting?I had a bottle of 2006 Muir Hanna Pinot Noir. When I first opened it, smelled it and tasted it it was very rough around the edges. Kind of like the liquid itself was sitting in a dusty closet. Wet cardboard maybe. As I let it breathe for a considerable amount... Read More

A very compelling offering from this relatively young winery. I've put up a review here and on my blog.http://www.corrundum.net/post/2006-Chrysalis-Tannat.aspx Read More
Fruit forward. In the sense that this wine smells great, tastes great up front but when the mid-palate and finish roll around the flavor disappears.the aroma is of chocolate liquer. It really smells like fermented chocolate. In a good way. The finish is just a bunch of hot oak. In a bad way. Read More
Wanting to try my first Merlot. Any suggestion would be appreciated. Looking to start for $20 or under to start with. Thanks Read More
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 lends some nice rusticity without detracting from the overall sense of quality. Oak is also well i... Read More
