  • German wine writers are taking note of Iberian sparklers. According to a press release by Spain's cava regulatory committee, German publisher Meininger's Weinwelt magazine will feature the bubbly beneath the Catalán cork in their December/January magazine issue, as well as an article by the magazine´s editor-in-chief Ilka Lindemann. “Lindemann p...

  • Red blends. It’s a term that has been bandied about quite liberally over the past several years, commonly referring to 'kitchen sink' wines that are overtly fruity and sweet enough to need their own category in which to hide. But there is also a need for a broad, overarching category to cover red wine blends that are emerging around the world, b...

  • Finca Constancia Vino de la Tierra de Castilla Spain 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Quire pure on the nose with hints of herb stem and earth framing sweet cognac tinged notes of earl grey tea and raspberry compote. The oak gains a little more intensity but aromatically this remains wonderfully focused and bright. On entry there a big rush of raspberry fruit followed by bristly yet well covered tannins and a nice dose of earthy... Read More

  • I wouldn't mind trying the Muga either but I was very pleased with the Finca La Mata.  In fact, I found a few bottles at the Whole Foods in Springfield VA for just $17.99 each (2011 vintage - they also had the 2012 vintage).  I bought two of them!I wish that stupid spammer would have a heart attack or something.  Even better if it happened while...

  • To close out an exciting weekend, we attended an opera yesterday - Florencia in the Amazon at The Kennedy Center.  Since this was a matinee, we had an early dinner after walking over to the Georgetown area along the C & O Canal.  We dined at the Bodega, a Spanish tapas place.  Yes, we had tapas at Jaleo's the previous day for lunch but this time...

  • A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC.  ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More

  • Finca la Garriga Emporda Castillo Perelada 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Still going strong. Good core of black cherry and plum peel with hints of boysenberry and smokey cedar. Tannins very fine, medium slightly peppery finish. Read More
