  • Hi Guys:In my ongoing saga of trying to learn how to cook, I'm planning on giving lobster thermidor a whirl soon. I'd like to pair it with 2-3 wines, mostly as a pairing experiment to see which works best. Any ideas? I was thinking I could potentially combine the dinner with the vintage VS NV champagne combo I've been meaning to do...other ideas... Read More

  • 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

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

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 ...

  • Powers Winery Champoux Vineyard Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot. Cabernet Franc. Petit Verdot. Cabernet Sauvignon Washington Horse Heaven Hills 2007

    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
