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...

|Region:||USA » California » San Luis Obispo County » Edna Valley|
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.

We have similar issues in AustraliaMain concerns for most wine companies is the "bus load of drunks" that turn up drink rather than taste buy nothing remember nothing and put off those who are there to genuinely sample.Napa probably leads the world in extravagant facilities but given you have have a bunch of movie stars/rock stars/corporate big ...

Here in the United States we are on a first-name basis with our wine grapes. The majority of casual wine drinkers understand what “Merlot”, “Moscato”, and “Cabernet” mean. Nowadays “Pinot” and even “Riesling” are familiar pals too. This is largely because the United States and other New World regions label their wines by varietal rather than geo... Read More
Brunello is the Hercules of wine. It’s powerful, strong, and valorous. It ages exceedingly well and lives nearly forever. These are testosterone-heavy wines that don’t need to peacock or boast about their masculinity. Rather they are quietly strong and confident, throwing powerful punches only when necessary. Vintage year plays a big role in the... Read More
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
Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

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
