Down Under

"The popularity of Australian chardonnays, combined with the availability of high quality wine at a super value price, make this is a natural for consumers and the trade." explained Franzia. "Down Under by Crane Lake has a fruit forward, crisp, clean taste in the Australian style." It’s not rocket science: Just good fruit made into a clean, zippy wine with fresh-fruit tastes. Wall Street Journal, July 25, 2009 – Description from ccasel

  • Planning to do some exploring into Italy's other wine varietals, those without the fanfare or popularity of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto, etc.First up is a Ruche with a few years bottle age by Montalbera, apparently a lighter wine that was traditionally brought out for special occassions...figure this should make for a nice aperti...

  • I agree that RCKR pulled down a nice group there.  That Neprica is a serious value. I'm feeling squeezed by JD's tilt toward Piemonte and everyone else getting on the Halcon bandwagon.  It's going to make things harder for me.The other night on the way to dinner, I stopped at Paul Marcus Wine Shop in Rockridge and grabbed a 2013 Vietti Barbera T...

  • I've had so many nasty Cabernet-Shiraz blends, mostly from down under, that I'm very wary of them these days. I understand the history, even in France, but too many green, stemmy, gaggy, hot, listing-in-the-wrong-direction monstrosities have really been nothing but downers. Read More

  • Had the good fortune to attend a Masters of Wine, Syrah Panel Tasting on Monday. I believe it was the last spot available for the seated tasting, consisting of 23 Syrah's from the main Syrah producing regions of the world. The tasting was held at the upstairs restaurant of the Wine House (famous retail shop and education facility) off of Cotner ... Read More

  • Put all the wine at the bottom of your refrigerator? Pull as needed and allow to warm-up a bit before drinking.....Leave them out at room temp which would be 74-75 degrees for me? And give them a quick 15 min cooling before drinking.....   Read More

  • Nebbiolo is a challenge to grow elsewhere, but that's because it's a challenge to grow anywhere, and it happens to have found a home in a place with very particular weather conditions.  That's problem number one.  It's a late ripener, so it has benefited by keeping the crop down to hasten ripening.  While other wines are now overripe, Piemonte h...

  • Emark, VV could lose minutes of precious drinking time in the vastness of 1k bottles.  Something needs to happen here.Since new acquisitions have little correlation to consumption,.. I hear you, loud and clear.  But don't you make hypothetical allocation tables?  Like, if I have room for 360 bottles, I want to have 1/4 Cab/Bordo, 1/8 Rioja, etc?... Read More

  • Rckr, this white was dry but not overly dry. We just finished the bottle after coming back from dinner. This had flavors of slightly under ripe peach, a bit of lemon and a touch of something floral, more like a nice grenache blanc but with a bit more fruit.  There was also some nice salinity and a decent amount of acid, would definitely revisit ...
