Light, crisp tropical fruit nose. At the vineyard, it's warmer during the day but cool at night, lending the tropical fruit flavors but still keeping it a crisp wine. Good creaminess on the palate with a fresh acidity. Definitely have with food. Great ...

When he started Kendall-Jackson Winery thirty-two years ago, Jess Jackson's ... this case it was a glass of Jackson Estate Camelot Highlands Chardonnay 2014 from the Santa Maria Valley in Santa Barbara.

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
Hi everyone. This is my first post on the boards. My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit. We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

So, I am completely unfamiliar with the wines you listed. It's not clear to me where the Heron Red and the Jackson Triggs are from. I am on the same page with you on using wines that I deem to b...

Freemark Abbey was actually quite good back in the late '60s, all through the '70s and into the '80s. They were even included in the 1976 Judgment of Paris where they took 10th place, amongst some very heavyweight competition. Will post those results, fully expecting the formatting to go awry... ;-( For the reds, then the whites:RankGradeWineVin... Read More
Not much to delight the palate on this one if you are drinking it on its own. Leaves a Listerine after taste. Haven't paired it with any foods. Going to save my last bottle to see if it is better in 2015. Read More
Hello:A bit of a long question, I apologize. I'm trying to train my palate and learn blind tasting by assembling groups of 100% varietal wines that are (supposedly) true representative.Right now I want to assemble a group of wines that will illustrate how to differentiate Argentine Malbec from Carmenere, and pick out similar wines. I don't even ... Read More
