  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • Washington wines have long been a major player in the United States wine scene, vaulting themselves from relative obscurity in the late 80's to the forefront of some of the country's best quaffers in the 2000's. Wine-crazy towns like Yakima and Walla Walla are popular stopping points for wine lovers.  But for as much as the home of Puget Sound h...

    Snoothrank:

    The wine itself is a beautiful dark ruby color in the glass with great clarity. The nose is a rich combination of leather, dark cherry, espresso and some floral notes. The taste is really exceptional, with some lovely ripe berry notes up front that transition beautifully to some lovely tart cherry and mocha notes midpalate. The finish is show... Read More

  • Yesterday I was recovering from Monday night.  You see, Sandra & I attended a wonderful wine tasting event.  For $40 per couple, we joined Nice Legs, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Crystal City, and the Crystal City Wine Shop for a tasting of more than 45 different wines poured by winemakers, winery representatives and importers.  Here are those fol...

  • I try to do something "different" for the weekend.  That usually means a nicer bottle or something I have selected specifically for my Washington Wines vs. The World challenge.I am finding that the price category for my weekday wines is creeping up.  It used to be 10-15 bucks, now it is more like 15-20 dollars.  That could have something to do w...

  • This might be a stretch, but when you're retired, almost everything goes.  I think it would be grand for folks to come up with an above average wine for Wednesdays, which some of us - those still working for a living - call 'hump day'.  Something beyond an everyday Weekday Wine, yet still below the threshold of a truly Weekend Wine.  Since tomor...

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • Just finished tasting Ballabourneen The Stuart 2013 Chardonnay (Australian Wine Selectors Hunter Valley Series January 2014 dozen), bottled under screwcap. Supposed to have a "round and subtle biscuity finish" Well the bottle I tasted was way to subtle for me I'm afraid! I think it is due to last week's tasting of the Tapanappa  2008 Tiers Picca...
