  • I am drinking a 2013 Porca de Murca, Douro Reserva from Portugal. The wine seems to be fine, clear sight, clean fruity nose, in the beginning its fine on the palate (maybe a lack of fruit compared to the nose)... everything but the finish. It has a weird bitter finish, very unpleasant. Its not the tart taste of tannins (even so it is pretty high... Read More

  • One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend.  Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we?  Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an...

  • Hi everyone.  This is my first post on the boards.  My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit.  We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

  • I opened a nice lightly oaked Chardonnay that we picked up from Muse Vineyards a few months ago.  This is the same winery that won the Virginia's Governors Cup for 2015.  I like every wine we have tried here."Barrel-fermented with hints of mineral and apricot on the nose, this wine is more intricate than many so-called New World Chardonnays. Its... Read More

  • There’s nothing quite like having wine friends. After all, our mutual topic of interest is a social lubricant. But there’s so much more to it, as Snooth’s recent blogger trip will attest. Earlier this month we had the opportunity to explore one of the country’s oldest and up-and-coming wine regions: Lodi, California. It still amazes me that a si... Read More

  • Few things better represent the art of winemaking more than the image of oak wine barrel racks inside a picturesque château, as they lovingly age the sweet juices that will one day be poured into our glasses. It’s an Old World image that reminds us to respect the timeless task of winemaking. While there are many types of wood barrels in which wi... Read More

  • Robin recently took the winemaking position at Swanson Vineyards in Oakville and I stopped by yesterday to pay him a visit. It was the first time I had been to Swanson which was started by the frozen foods Swanson's back in 1985. Situated on their Estate of 100 acres of Cabernet and Merlot just off Hwy 29 it's easy to find. I drove past the tast... Read More
