  • “Winemakers and other wine professionals are a generous lot. We have frequently written of a long list of winemakers and winery owners from those in our own enological 'neighborhood' to the group in California and Oregon, those along the East Coast, from the Old World appellations of Europe and the New World ones of South American, Australia, Ne...

  • Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Impressive, but seems young and a bit raggedy edged, everything not quite settled in. Perhaps, given a couple of years, this one will be great. Beautiful chocolate/plum/cherry/thyme nose and dark dark ruby/burgundy color. Read More

  • It’s time again to venture into the unknown in order to find some new wines for the coming summer season. Chenin Blanc may be best known in it’s home, France’s Loire Valley, but it is also an exceptionally important variety in South Africa. Perhaps the most important white variety as South Africa continues to re-establish it’s markets around the... Read More

  • Ernie Els Chenin Blanc Big Easy 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A touch reticent on the nose though this does deliver some attractive quince, sour plum and vaguely green nutty aromas. Smooth, tart, and rich though undoubtedly from a touch of RS here. The flavors are simple but intense, with quince, lime, and even a little guava rolling off the powerful palate. Thi is an intense wine and the electric acidity ... Read More

  • It's not a totally new chateau and they don't actually call it "Brad Pitt" or "Tres Jolie" or something ridiculous like that.  Lots of celebs own wineries and they rehabbed this one and actually partnered with experienced, accomplished winemakers.  Somehow when a former exec of AOL (Meteor Wines) or the franchiser of Motel Six (his neighbor at S...

  • Maybe I’m a purist or maybe too old fashioned and trapped in my own little world of terrior and varietals.  But this for some reason makes me uncomfortable.  Is Justin Beaver coming out with a Sauv Blanc next month?  Or maybe a new Chenin Blanc....   Whats next….Brangelina's (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) new wine premiers to rave reviews.  http...

  • Ernie Els Proprietor's Blend 2010

    Snoothrank:

    59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Shiraz, 6% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, 5% Petit VerdotJellied black fruits, mint, tomato leaf, black currants, spicy oak, and raw beef greet the nose here. Its a lovely nose, a bit subtle perhaps, but with great complexity. Focused and almost silky with its seamless balance. This is a delightful wine in the... Read More

  • Dave, that Sangiovese/Cab/Merlot blend sounds pretty good.  I've have only recently learned much about Super Tuscans and now enjoy trying them.A couple days ago you asked about prices, and I think the short answer to your question is, "Yes."  I'm sure that GregT has a better understanding of this but from my observation a winery will set a retai...
