Earthy and herbal with a suggestion of dry chili and lovely soil tones all layered over fresh berry fruit that is nicely framed with a touch of wood spice. This smells great. Surprisingly light bodied in the mouth with soft, ripe tannins and fine acids...

What's everyone opening?No cooking for me this year, but I'll be providing all the wines, probably 10-12 bottles. Have to make final cuts tonight but a couple bottles of Chardonnay, Beaujolais, and Pinot are in the mix. Read More
Many of us think of Chianti as an expensive, everyday wine but of course the truth of the matter is much more complex than that, and it just got even more complex. Adding complexity where it is not necessary seems to be something the Italians excel at, and with the introduction of Chianti Classico Gran Selezione they may have just done just that... Read More

Surprisingly light bodied in the mouth with soft, ripe tannins and fine acids. This seems a touch dilute and while Im loving its drinkability it does seem to be lacking a b... Read More

Howdy, folks. I have access to very well preserved mid-90s Mondavi reserve cabs. I have been eyeing them for a while and wondered if anyone here has opened them recently and cared to share their thoughts on whether they are worth the $100 or so it would cost to acquire them.Thanks in advance.

The wine jumps out of the glass with a rich mix of cherries, dried cranberry and ripe plum. It isnt all just fruit, there is still acidity to give backbone and an extensive finish. Spice is still a fairly m... Read More

Recently I started a new side to my business www.bellawinetours.com where we take people to some of the finest Chateaux in Bordeaux and taste some of the best wines. It is always great fun arriving at Chateau Lafite Rothschild or C... Read More
*If you have zero interest in reading about a Brooklyn Wine Shop then feel free to dismiss the thread. I figured that there would be enough NYers and/or transients on the board to make this a worthwhile post.I’m the last guy to champion my local retailers. Why, you ask? Because they stink…well, that’s not fair- they’re dirty and unimaginative an... Read More
