  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • As near as I can recall, I said something about having a particular fondness for Argentine Malbecs along with Chilean Carmineres and Cabs.  The problem I have is that I suffered a head injury about 30 years ago that took away a good bit of my olfactory sense, so many of the nuances of a fine wine are totally lost on me.  Reading a description of...

  • Okay, I have no idea how to do this.  I posted what I thought was an intro a week or two ago and I cannot find either my post or any of whatever replies there might have been.  Computers and the arcane rituals one has to perform in order to make sense of any of this crap are an absolute mystery to me.  I am a MENSA member so I know perfectly wel...

  • Dry Creek Vineyard Heritage Vines Sonoma Zinfandel 2012


    Boy was this good. Dry Creek has mastered zins over the years and Heritage Vineyards has some of the best zin stock ever. Dense, black and brooding this exudes varietal excitement. Blackberry, damson plum, oak, pepper, spice and briary notes lead to a palate that follows the nose well. This leads to a medium to full bodied tannic structure that ... Read More

  • 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...

  • OK back to what we're drinking. ordered a 6 pack of this Christopher Creek petite sirah when we were there in last April. Still very young but drinking nicely. This is fairly big but not as huge as most PS' I've had. Inky and dark in the glass with loads of black fruit, licorice and a hint of smoke. This is a big wine but still well balanced wit...

    Forum post in the topic Whatcha drinking tonight?

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

  • Lake Norman Winery Grenache Pendant 2010


    Nice enough Dry Creek Valley grenache from our local North Carolina negociant. There's some earthiness on the nose along with some ripe dark berries. Loads of ripe dark cherry on the tongue along with some black licorice, fine grained tannins, nice acidity and a medium finish. Read More

    Wine review by vin0vin0

  • An excessively cheap, bland drop of poorly fermentened imitation grapes; suitable only for gifting or re-gifting to people you would rather were dead.
