Chocolate, red cherries in alcohol and a nice lightly toasted oak top note greet the nose, all bathed in a subtle mint-framing note. This shows only medium-plus body on the palate, with a nice bit of tannin making this rather firm and supporting its co...

This is a report I adapted from my recap on WB. Unfortunately a few guests fell ill in the days prior and had to bow out. Missed you Richard! All in all it was a fun evening with some interesting wines. Plenty of left overs to start the next incarnation. Weather was rain in the AM and we feared having to host indoors but the skies cleared around... Read More
So my wife loves zins but we really like a velvety mouth feel with some good fruit. Right now our favorite is The Zin by Cosentino. If anyone has recommendations my wife is starting to sware off all other booze except this zin so help me out. We are open to other reds as well. Read More
D - it's VERY good to see you back. I was going to stop posting. I figured ... at home I'm drinking a Dickerson Vineyard Merlot, but it's from 1997 and then I'm going to open a nice oloroso.In SD, they don't know from olorosos. Someone has to teach them.It's a cultural adjustment for sure.Hard as it is to believe, food is MORE expensive than i... Read More

Hello everyone. My name is Tom. My wife and I enjoy finding new wines and cherishing old favorites. We've been drinking "good" wines for about ten years and have distinctly different tastes. I prefer dry reds while she likes fruity, but not sweet whites and Champagne. Looking forward to reading reviews and sharing my tastes with the rest of... Read More
A very bold, but totally balanced Zinfandel from "the other side of the mountain" in Napa Valley. I'm so accustomed to the great Ravenswood Zins from Sonoma Valley, that I didn't know what to expect, but a great wine maker just knows how to make a great wine! Great flavor with a long, pleasant floral finish. Read More

Wow, we had a great time last night. Hopefully Foxall will have a chance to put his spin on things. I didn't take any notes, just 2 pictures but I lined up some of the dead soldiers this morning. 15 people, over 30 different wines and not a single dud except for a sweet/syrupy/candied 2001 Rosenblum Monte Rosso Zinfandel. But enough for the bad... Read More
Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More
