Really smooth drinking wine. Wanted a bit more fruit, which is why only 4 stars but great balance.

Wonderful wine. Full structure and front and mid palate loaded! The entry and mid palate are big, ripe, and full structured. The tannins are fine and the nose is fantastic! Mocha notes entice the senses in this great accessible blend from a fantastic...

At first was only 3 stars, but improved after 15 minutes in the glass. Nose had cedar, cherry and olives. Viscous and chalky in mouth, with notes of pepper. Finish was maybe a little too tight. This wine may drink better next year.

Just read through this. Fox, you can't be serious with this line:"The good news for me is I live in California. I'm in a wealthy state, with a less crazy electorate,"Amigo - the rest of the country views California as the definition of crazy. The state with the smartest people in all the world and its finances are a disaster, its infrastructure... Read More
Actually, there's some other cool things you can do on that trip: It is the spine of the gold country, with old mines you can view and tour, you can go through Lodi's wine country, there's at least three major underground caverns (one with rappelling and an outdoor zipline), the town of Murphys is cute and has lots of tasting rooms. If one has... Read More
So friends, what wines will we be opening tonight? I still have more Cat Tuesday activities to complete, but when I get home in a few hours I will post the bottle we plan to drink. I am so looking forward to the end of this election cycle! Read More
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
I’d never heard of Godello until a few years ago but this Spanish white grape variety is now a regular on U.K. wine shelves. What’s more, it’s here to stay; it’s easy to pronounce, the wines taste good and, let’s be honest, we all like to tell our mates about a ‘new’ wine. Godello comes from north-west Spain where the vineyard areas of Bierzo, V... Read More
So why Colmar as opposed to, say, Riquewihr? Where else are you going during the trip, and what proportion is aimed towards wine?If budget allows you should book a lunch or dinner at L'Auberge de L'Ill, in Illhausern, Alsace. A couple of Michelin stars: http://www.auberge-de-l-ill.com/V2/... . Best winelist of Alsatian choices I can remember s... Read More
Bottom feeding with backvintage, 06 and 08, Barolo. I just tasted through 2012s with more than a dozen producers and I'm not going to be buying many of them. The prices, at least the asking prices, aren't going down and will make well priced back vintage examples look all too appealing. The Burlotto wines were the stars of the tastings by the wa...

Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

BTW, the genesis of TWG is that it arose from Coca Cola's foray into wine. A group that managed the wine properties eventually broke away; they didn't get all of Coca Cola's wine properties, just the "stars": Mogen David, a cheap vermouth maker. Started badly and hasn't really improved. Read More
Was just reading an article that stated that pregnant women should consider craft beer the same as wine in their drinking strategies. Then an article about craft beer in SLO county. Then saw this: Any thoughts? Read More
