  • Old Moon Zinfandel Old Vine 2013


    Wonderful 7 dollar price point for such an enjoyable Zinfandel. Black plum and spicy notes with a hint of vanilla. Strong flavor of the Bing cherry we all love. Very much a fruit bomb with a lingering taste of the above composited.Go get some, you will not be disappointed. Read More

  • Rimmerman's bombast has been known to turn off more than a few readers, but I've had some success with his offerings in the past. This is one that caught my interest in the past day, because the backstory about Beaujolais is something I've thought for decades. Beaujolais truly is, i believe, the flipside of Burgundy, so without it one's perspect... Read More

  • Winemakers are buying into the idea of biodynamic winemaking. This past week United Kingdom-based newspaper The Independent examined the emergence of biodynamic winemaking in the global market, offering the reader background about the movement, its tenets and what kind of price tags you can expect. “Wine making is a complicated business. The vag... Read More

  • "When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed.  Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women.  This morning, with...

  • DM, as fate would have it, I am actually midway through a PN at this very moment.My opinion doesn't come from having tasted one many years ago. I do give it every chance. In the last 2 weeks I have had three. This one is the most PN-like of the three, which is rather unfortunate. However, I'm high on the winery - they do a lot of different grape... Read More

  • I posted this as a reply to another thread about travel shock, but that thread never got bumped up to the front page, for some reason. Guess I'll have to start a new topic, as my curiosity remains unsatiated.So I've done my reading on the subject (http://www.wineloverspage.com/dibbern/shock07.phtml, et al) but I'm looking for any anecdotal evide...

  • If you're looking to impress a Valentine's Day date with cocktails that have a romantic twist to them, I've got you covered. Most of these cocktails are classics that elicit this holiday's charm via name, history...or the simple fact that they're red and delicious. The Blood & Sand is a heavy, dark hitter probably best for the end of the evening...

  • RexSeven - You bought Repris wine on a sellout?  Was it from the previous owner of the Moon Mountain vineyard (Audelssa) or was it under the Repris label?  Our wine is from the wine club, not a sale.  We've been to the winery twice, in 2012 and 2013.  I'm still a bit confused about Audelssa (www.audelssa.com); as their website talks about a rece...

  • Yes it was the old purple label Moon Mountain.  Invino.com had a huge Moon Mountain sellout a couple years ago and we almost drowned in it.  I think we bought like 15 cases in all.  It was all very good.  Zins, Francs, Syrahs, Cabs, and the Petite Verdot/Cab was especially good.  They ranged from $10 to $14 and from 2001 to 2007 vintages.  I wis...

  • I haven't heard any word on the Repris Wines until now.  I bought quite a bit of the old Moon Mountain wine on sellout and really liked it.  The Petite Verdot Cab blend was really wonderful...especially for $12 per bottle.  Glad to hear the wine appears to have emerged unscathed from the sale.  I wish it were more easily available.
