  • Terra Valentine Wurtele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2008


    Quite dark purple. Very fruity noseblackberry, prune. Fruitiness does not hit on the tongue, though. This is a robust very tannic Spring Mountain example. This is not a not for fruit juice lovers. Some leather, some tobacco, but the closest non wine flavor that I can suggest is dark bitter chocolate. This is almost the kind of wine that I ...

It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... Read More

  • Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... Read More

  • 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...
