Write a description for this store.
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...

|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:||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...

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:||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...

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:||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.
|Region:||Spain » Leon|
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:||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:||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...

There's been so much press about the state of the industry and over supply of wine; especially at the upper price points (stopping short of cult). And my in box is filled with 30% off and free shipping offers; no doubt trying to take advantage of the holiday buying season. But here's what I'm wondering...what happens when January arrives? My ... Read More
As I had mentioned a while back I am making some wine this year and this means for a short period of time I need to be in Sonoma a lot. I need to be there to see what is going on, do punch downs and take readings on the wine. Harvest is a busy time but if you are only doing work on one ton of grapes there isnt a lot to do. This means I find m... Read More
Venturing into the Bluebonnet Wine Country and the History of Southeast TexasSaturday morning was crisp and the roads clear following Fridays record breaking early snowfall in the Houston area. The overpasses that brought mortal fear the night before were thawed; a great morning for taking in a wine trail. However, southeastern Texas area does n... Read More
Just got into my first bottle of Petite Sirah. Bogle 07. I am very much enjoying this varietal. This looks very appealing in the glass and has nice blueberry fruit, but not jammy, earthy notes working around in the background. Nice complexity.Any suggestions on another representative? Read More
I nice everyday wine, but there lacks a depth of flavour and sense of elegance. Read More
I've recently found that I really like Malbec. Does anyone have any suggestions of good, affordable Malbec to try? Read More
I have wondered this for a while now. When pairing wine with food (this is probably more true at restaurants as your ability to alter dishes is minimized compared to home cooking), do you normally choose the wine to enhance the food, or choose a wine that will BE enhanced by your meal? I understand optimally, both should occur, but I just want... Read More
Enlightened, or not? A Vancouver, B.C. bylaw scheduled to go into effect on January 1 says that restaurants can't serve wine that costs more than the food they're serving.http://www.bcwinelover.com/vancouvers-restaurant-booze-bylaw-gets-bad-reviews#moreSeems like it's a battle in the evolving war between restaurateurs and bar/club owners in that...
