Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • Perhaps we can throw all sorts of wines in here with a mysterious WTF factor, whether photos of the wine, its label, logo, descriptions or what have you. Who knows what they might be? I'll start things out.From the opening scene of the current episode of a well-received TV show: what is this wine? Does it actually exist? What, if anything, is wr... Read More

While the 1990 tasted just before started to show pleasing toffee aspects, this wine over time showed off custard pie, white pepper like the 1990, but wi... Read More

  • I am a wine newbee and I am almost angry that I have gone *ehem* 38 yrs and not really enjoyed wine like I should have. I'm starting to get a little more familiar with my local stores, however I'm not sure I could ever truly know everything there is to know about every wine out there.  So.....I have recently decided that I love a good Red Bordea...

  • I’m so glad I found this tasting happening at my work's social clubhouse because my intended attendance at the trade tasting didn’t eventuate. I’m gutted that I missed out on the chance to taste the 2001 Cuvee Madame. I’ll have to dig deep into the pockets for a glass now, thank goodness for tax returns time! I had previously provided an introdu... Read More
