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.

Had this with dinner at Del Frisco's Eagle in Dallas. This one from Wine.com seems very accurate to me - '"One of the brightest and most consistent stars from the Allegrini portfolio, the 2011 Palazzo della Torre does a great job in framing local flavo...

The next time you visit Barcelona, Spain, get yourself into the mountainous vineyard regions of Priorat and Montsant, just a short drive from this beautiful Mediterranean city. “Which region is which?” This may sound crazy but think of the regions as a fried egg! The yolk is Priorat, the surrounding egg white is Montsant. Not very technical I ag... Read More
After much agony and discernment, I have chosen the official wine for my Super Bowl party this year. Over the 9 years I've hosted this event, it is probably the least exotic selection, not to mention least expensive. Given the fact chili is the main dish (oh please, don't turn your nose. After all, we're American pigskin fans, not Bolsheviks), ... Read More
Man's best friend is a logical pairing for man's best drink. This past week reporter Lauren Eads, a reporter for European industry publication The Drinks Business, published a list of the top ten winery dogs which included pooches – and two donkeys to boot – from three different countries. “Wherever wine is made, it's likely that canine companio...

Not too many years ago, I had what is still referred to in my family as the "Christmas of the Rack" -- an entire holiday season where I inexplicably received a ton of very odd wine storage units. There were racks shaped like stars and guitars, racks meant for hanging and stacking, racks so bizarre and forcibly whimsical they could only have been... Read More

The change represents more than a new property – the restaurant's owner Dan Sachs is also passing on the Bin 36 name to beverage director Enoch Shully, Eater.com's Chicago division repo... Read More
Lucky you. I was just there... Piedmont is pretty stretched out. If you want to be in Barolo/Barbaresco country, I stayed at a really nice agriturismo (read: Bed and Breakfast) in Castiglione Falletto called Tenuta Montanello. It's a working winery, although not one of the stars. But the hosts are extremely nice and it's quite reasonable. I... Read More

From the article... I find it interesting what wine people (see article for what that comprises) found special... and I like the last phrase below:The first factor we asked our experts to focus on was the quality of individual bottles the wineries produced — particular vintages that stand out as stars in America’s wine scene. Next, we requeste... Read More
