  • Fancy schmancy.  That charity event looked ver cool Al. Awesome.I'm goiing to check out the "short-eared mule" wine, tonight.  ;-)  I'm certainly no expert, but I'm inclined to agree with you DM. Have you ever had a wine that was less than the sum of its parts.  This may be one.  It has a big fruity on the nose.  Red fruit on entry.   Then there...

  • I've had many of those Juan GIl's. Really good value.GregT, I agree that Oz is alone in that opinion.  Although I think Tempranillo on its own is lacking and more makers need to put something in there to kick the acid up a notch in general.  Unless it's joven, young and fruity, Tempranillo can go flat on its own pretty fast.  That's why Rioja an...

  • Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year.  With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year.  And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win...

  • JD, I won't bother with Chilean Cab in general, but the Castillero del Diablo (pretty sure that's what you're talking about) Carmenere is a very good week night drinker in most vintages, goes great with beef stew with cumin.  Love the chocolate-y note, but like spicy Mexican chocolate.  Would go great with certain moles.  Hits the same button fo...

  • Bolivian wine?????I think yours is the first example I've seen here, Al.  Definitely worthy of the ". . . completely different" thread, which as seen no posts since Jun 26.Wading back into the Mexican food pond, and going with the Totally-Americanized-Chain-Restaurant-and-Fast-Food-No-Less sub-category, I have to say that El Pollo Loco is one of...

  • Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More

  • You'll notice, Mark, the term is in English, so this is aimed at the export market, particularly North America.Not sure if you're up on the difference between filtered or fined wine, and that which hasn't been, but this is a basic question for any winemaker. Fining and more recently filtering aim at removing particulate matter that may cause clo... Read More

  • Busy day today, general management and planning for several projects in the morning, followed in the afternoon by sorting and moving and storing two dozen cases of wine and Sake received in lieu of payment for assistance with a wine auction. I brought six cases home (two white, two red, two Sake), gifted four others and stored 14 away in a frien... Read More

  • Recent research shows that a glass of red wine a day is like twenty minutes of vigorous exercise. So before summer rosés officially take hold, get in on the last gasps of Cabernet. I tasted through forty different Cabernets, all under $16. There are some superb examples here that you’re going to want to try. Cabernet, because of the value inhere... Read More
