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.

Pinot noir has become the great alternative. When you don’t want to give another big red wine as a gift it opens up a world of possibilities. Immediately appreciated by name alone, Pinot seems to have developed a certain cachet as the thinking man’s red wine, though there is little evidence to support that. Perhaps it comes from the history that... Read More

On the countertop in the tasting from was a bottle of wine in a Christmas bag... Read More
Hi Mommycat,Sorry to hear about your past headache. Hard to say what the issue was, but it prolly wasn't sulfites. One can have sensitivity or intolerance to certain wines. Sometimes it can be difficult to figure out. I have multiple allergies, so I understand :-) There are some wines that I just cannot drink, but my reaction is more of flu... Read More
Hi, I am new to wine. I have had wine before but one time I got a severe headache after. Someone told me that it was probably sulfites in wine that caused headache. So I have not had anymore since then. However, I recently read an article mentioning that sulfites in wine do not cause headache because sulfites are also found in dried fruit, wh... Read More
I tried it. For starters, the fine print is not hidden - but you still need to read it. Nothing terrible, but there are terms. Essentially, for forty bucks a month you get a 6 or 8 bottles of wine shipped. You get to pick from a list that includes user reviews. Instead of stars or points, the user rating is "would you buy it again".As for the wi... Read More

Yesterday we were lucky enough to attend a barrel sample Fall Release Preview Picnic at the Bedrock Vineyard in Sonoma. A typical beautiful Sonoma County day with temps hovering in the low 90's. We were treated with a great selection of food and wines. The invitation encouraged us to bring something we wanted to share so lots of other interestin... Read More
