  • Emark - white carpet?Sheesh!BTW, Grenache is typically fairly low in acid, particularly malic acid, which is why it's often blended and also why it's often so good right away when the fruit is fresh. But if people pay a lot of money, they think they should age it and then you get old CdPs . ee. .Big Al - tannins don't really mellow out with air,... Read More

  • It can be researched but there are a few problems with the research. (And with my post - for some reason the edit function isn't working)Anyway, there's research enough to know that what's happening when people says certain aromas "blow off" is that they're not blowing off, they're just becoming bigger molecules and are therefore not as noticeab...

  • . . . but has anybody participated in, or read about, a blind tasting of multiple samples of the same wine that have been opened for varying amounts of time?Many years ago I subscribed to Stereophile magazine. Not that I could afford the high-end equipment that they reviewed--heck, I could barely afford the magazine subscription--but I enjoy mus... Read More

  • It’s the heart of winter here in the northern hemisphere, a time when our attentions turn to robust red wines. One wine in particular seems to be relegated to these cold months, and that is a bit of a shame. I’m talking about the often misunderstood Amarone. A powerful wine, one with relatively high alcohol and rich flavors, but one that often i... Read More

  • We’re now on episode five of cellar clean-up, today focusing on a handful of White Meritage Blends. I would love to have had additional examples to compare these wines to, but that was not to be. It’s a fascinating, if tiny category of wines. In the face of both the popularity of and obviously suitable sites for red Meritage Blends one could be ... Read More

  • I think GregT has pretty much summed up my disappointment/fatigue with Bordeaux, and it's become pretty widespread.  Classic example of killing the goose that laid the golden egg.  Burgundy next?  Maybe not, just because there is so little of it (even counting the counterfeits).  But the pricing on better Bordeaux--and remember, the now-$150 Cal...

  • There will be interest from the group of people who think Bordeaux is special. As people are exposed to more wines, that group diminishes in size."Take Pavie Macquin, which cost $150 in 2010. The 2011 is very good, but at about one third the price, which is an incredible value."So $50 is an "incredible" value? It's only a "value" for Pavie Macqu... Read More

  • Greetings!I share an article I had published in Harpers Wine & Spirit (UK) based on two tastings earlier this month in Washington DC.2013 looks to be an, er, difficult vintage. But as some of the 11s proved, one can find a few bright spots. Will prices come down far enough to garner any interest?I will head to Bordeaux for the barrel tastings in... Read More

  • D'Arenberg the Stump Jump Grenache Shiraz Mourvedre Mclaren Vale 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A very pure expression of this popular wine. All three varieties play an important role in the wines overall perception.The Shiraz offers dark plum fruits, mulberries and licorice with plenty of concentration, depth and velvety tannin.The Grenache adds a lovely lusciousness to the wine with raspberry, blueberry and floral notes adding prettiness...
