  • Marilyn Merlot is hardly something I'm interested in (although I love merlot).  I saw someone in Victoria has a collection of 12 bottles they were selling on Craigslist for $200 (including the metal rack).  Only a few of the bottles were empty.  Obviously, it is questionable that they were stored properly and I'd bet not.  But I was wondering if...

  • Marqués de Riscal Blanco 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Pale yellow with a slight greenish hue, this light bodied wine smells like asian pear, honeydew, and clover honey. Tastes of the same with some raw pineapple/sweet ruby grapefruit notes. Light bodied with lots of mouth watering acid - a very bright and crisp wine. Medium to long in length. I like this one, but don't love it because I would like ... Read More

  • Marques de Riscal Rioja 150th Anniversary Gran Reserva Case of 6 Bottles 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Botella bordelesa que sobresale por el peso, el embalaje sobrio y señorial, la etiqueta sigue la versión clásica de la marca aunque alguna información como el grado alcohólico (14º) resulta dificil de observar. En la contraetiqueta indica que se emplea tempranillo, graciano y mazuelo aunque parece ser que al final en esta añada el mazuelo se sup... Read More
