  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • Dry Creek Vineyard Heritage Vines Sonoma Zinfandel 2012


    Boy was this good. Dry Creek has mastered zins over the years and Heritage Vineyards has some of the best zin stock ever. Dense, black and brooding this exudes varietal excitement. Blackberry, damson plum, oak, pepper, spice and briary notes lead to a palate that follows the nose well. This leads to a medium to full bodied tannic structure that ... Read More

  • One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend.  Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we?  Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an...

  • So me and my wife took a cruise a few months back. And ofcorse we wanted to try as many new things as possible. One of those things happened to be wine. Until then me being the typical 30 year old male I usually stuck to beer or whiskey things of that nature and my wife just didn't like to drink much at all. But oh the magic that happened on tha...

  • HI.  Thanks for the response.  I was planning on trying to make appointments at wineries so being able to drop in is not essential to us. Below are some of the wineries/tasting rooms I've come across in my searches that I'm considering.  However, I don't know what to make a priority and I'm sure I'm missing others I should consider.  Healdsburg:...

We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

One must remember that before the mid 1990's, our plant materials were not that good - generally bigger cluster, bigger berry clones that one was able to crop heavily in order to make simple, fruity wines from.That changed with Tablas C...

  • I buy the cab all the time at cvs @ 4.00 a bottle. Not a bad wine for the buck. I did not find it overly sweet as others stated on this site but it is definitely thin but otherwise a good wine with food or sweets.
