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...

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

Only 5000 bottles of “La Roche” Mâcon-Vergisson are produced each year. While Decanter has not yet reviewed the 2007 vintage, the acclaimed wine magazine highly recommended “La Roche” 2006, Mâcon-Vergisson in a blind tasting of 168 wines from the Mâco...

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.

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
Qupe has always impressed me with their reasonable pricing. Lately I've just found the wines a little lackluster. Maybe I've just gotten spoiled by those Sonoma Syrahs that OT (mostly) turns us onto. Still, they never make bad wine. I bought some Tensley a couple years ago from WineAccess after all the RP hype. It was a huge disappointment--... Read More
Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More
I think you have some good wines but it's not because I've had those specific wines from those specific vintages. I've had those wines however, and others from the same vintages, and if that's what you have in your collection, you have a great collection. The 1982 Bordeaux vintage was the one that famously made Robert Parker a controversial figu... Read More
