Wine, wines tasting notes, wine talk, wine reviews, and bashing of your favorite wine critics
I am not gonna lie, at first I thought this was a joke. David Lancaster forwarded me the site, asking me if I knew anything. I asked him to ask his office (as he works for a wholesaler).
A couple of months later and I am reading, on the internet, that...
Gruet Blanc de Blanc
09 Realm Sauvignon Blanc
06 Favia La Magdelena
07 Cayuse Armada
07 Buccella Napa Cab
05 Kapscandy Roberta's Reserve
Working on order, but have already started with Gruet Mimosa's while prepping Creme Brulee Tart for dessert.
Cheers from New Mexico and a GREAT 2011...
May your New Year be above all marked by good health – that is what most reasonable people will say as we ring in 2011. For wine and food lovers like people on this board, may your New Year also be full of great bottles. That’s right, because, especially for older wines, one talks less about the...
Expletive laden commentary regarding James Suckling, not for the squeamish...
How is wholesale pricing with the new importer vs Chadderdon??
2007 BURGUNDIES - (12/28/2010)
Last night my tasting group met to try some 2007 Burgundies. The objective was to sample the vintage, yet keep the price under $60. All of the wines were served blind and consumed over 2.5 hours. Breads and cheeses were served alongside.
This was my first real...
1967 Renato Ratti Barolo Abazia Annunziata - Italy, Piedmont, Langhe, Barolo (12/1/2010)
The cork went through and looked like it survived the last day of Pompei. Nevertheless, the wine was fine, not much sediments and the air just made it trick and gave us a couple of enjoyable hours with...
I'm dating a chick who is into design and she finds things like this and sends them along...
I'm always stoked to see things about wine and wine culture in other parts of the media.:aplz:
09 Schraders merely got 92-94 and up. Story at 6. :fan_shit: :dead:
I thought we needed a post on his Honor's scores since everyone here lives in their Mom's basement and adores him.:in_love::in_love:
There are reviews of Israel by the Squirrel though and Dan's favorite region, Aussie. ...
2006 Saxum Syrah Booker Vineyard - USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles (12/26/2010)
Drank this Christmas Eve. No food. This worked very nicely as a cocktail. Lots of black raspberries and some grilled meat. Young but showing depth and complexity. There is some port-like heat, but I enjoy...
So, those of you with gmail will notice that google analyzes the content of your emails and sends you what they feel are ads that you will be interested in. This was the ad line at the top of my email today:

2007 Booker Vineyard The Alchemist 28 months - USA, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles (12/26/2010)
Very dark in the glass with a gorgeous nose of purple flowers, baking spices, blackberries and cherries. The palate is medium in weight, cool, stone and charcoal flavors. The fruit is ripe but...
From a different Wine Board that will not be named....................
"Mr. Parker then brought up recent events on eRobertParker.com that ended up with the online public forum becoming non-public and pay subscription only. He said a similar situation had happened back at Prodigy too. "Perhaps...
Donnafugata Mille e Une Notte Sicilia 2006
This wine is packed with intrigue at every level. Starting with the name. Donnafugata, literally "fugitive woman" alludes to a Sicilian Queen who fled to refuge in the wilds of western Sicily where the Donnafugata vineyards...
I hope the wholesalers rot in hell!
2004 Turley Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard - USA, California, Napa Valley, St. Helena (12/19/2010)
The nose brought some powdered sugar and very ripe plums. The palate had ripe dark cherries, and was sweet and smooth but hollow in the mid palate. Clipped finish. Some people seem to enjoy the evolution...
After a four day visit to Burgundy earlier this month, I finally put down my thoughts with many tasting notes HERE with photos.
Best wishes for a healthy and happy holiday season. :party35:
So, watched Mondovino and read that French comic book on Parker. Pretty savage stuff. Had no idea that International Styled Wine was a Massive Global Conspiracy (emphasis mine). The goal of this conspiracy? To make the rich richer, the poor poorer, vanquish the world's great idiosyncratic...
Interesting failing idea. I wish these people the best, but live by the sword, die by the sword. Critics/Importers destroyed Australian wine.
One night after witnessing the Jets get demolished by the Pats, I headed to Boston for dinner with some folks.
Troquet was my spot of choice. If you have not been, then you are missing out on a hidden gem in that city.
We had Chris Campbell pair an outstanding tasting menu to go with the...
Been extremely busy, and I am very backlogged on TNs to type here.
Last night, 2 mags for 6 adults for a holiday dinner.
2002 Christian Moreau Chablis les Clos-Drinking very well at the moment, but definitely on the nuttier side, which I really love about aged Chablis. Should not be for a...

this James is the James for me:
A very nicely written piece imo, informative as can be and very level headed.
full disclosure: I buy 5 copies of each WS issue and with the right cover I can sell 2 or 3.
