  • There's an argument to be made for Riesling, and it's made on a regular basis. It goes something like this: Riesling is great, it's flexible and it's food friendly, with wines ranging from dry to syrupy sweet, so there's something for everyone to like. This has been the argument of the day for years now. Trouble is Riesling still finds resistanc... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Light apricot, raw nut meat, dried flower and peach aromas are balanced and fairly intense.This shows a really fine balance of intensity and complexity in the mouth while remaining fairly dry and medium lightweight. The flavors build on the palate starting off with subtle lime and blood orange flavors that gain hints of minerality and dried appl... Read More

  • Syrah has been a perennial dark horse in the US market for much of the last two decades. It’s a grape that always seems to be on the verge of greatness, even exploding on the scene in the late 1990s under the Shiraz moniker and with a thick Aussie accent, but as we all know, Aussie Shiraz is so very 1990, and Syrah struggles to find a following ...

    Snoothrank:

    Cocoa and baking spices leap from the glass. The oak is not restrained, but it works well with the rich, primary black plum and black currant fruit. Mostly Cabernet, the fruit is pure with an intense aftertaste and is supported by a chiseled, muscular frame. Read More

  • I was going to put this in the Whatcha Drinking Tonight thread. But since there was some Syrah talk going on I thought I'd start a new thread on Cool Climate Syrah.Tonight I'm visiting a wine I haven't had in since May and wanted to see how it is progressing. It comes from high up atop the Yorkville Highlands in the Anderson Valley  which is in ... Read More

  • Cabernet Sauvignon is often blended. This changes - and some would say completes - its distinctive profile. To showcase this iconic black grape, I wanted to pluck out varietal Cabernets. However, I most wanted to spotlight wines from Washington and some of my favorites there are Cabernet-dominated blends. So, I’ve chosen some of both.While no lo... Read More

  • Well most everyone has received their wines and have had them resting for a while. Unfortunately, we had a few shipping issues along the way, but all in all I think we did pretty good. Foxall is the only one not to have received anything yet, while Shi's SS wasn't heard from, but luckily an elf stepped in and sent her some wine. Finally, it look... Read More

  • So far the world of wine retail has been pretty boring, when it comes to Cyber-Monday sales.I've seen free shipping from Zachys (promo code ZSHIPNOV), Sherry Lehmann and AllStar wines (Which doesn't really help you if you live in New York).  Italian Wine Merchant has 20% off everything on the website (promotion code: CYBER2012), which just about...
