Jean-Louis Denois Pinot Noir Brut Rosé (out of stock)
Review Date: 2-15-2010
Darn, I love their reg brut but this just had no flavor, really short. ;(80 pts
2007 Frédéric Mabileau "Racines" Bourgueil (out of stock)
Review Date: 2-7-2010
Really nice. Subtle tobacco and green pepper. Good weight. Wish it was a little cheaper though. 89 pts.
2007 Adega Pena Das Donas "Verdes Matas" Ribeira Sacra (out of stock)
Review Date: 1-31-2010
Holy minerality! Almost prickles the tongue as if there were some carbonation in here. Could use a touch more fleshiness for my palate but nice. Reminds me of a simple light (clean) Bourgogne. 87
2008 Benaza Mencía Monterrei (out of stock)
Review Date: 1-26-2010
Great! BUY MORE! Red Berries, vibrant acidity, mineral. Anise is a good call, also, has a pastrami (smoky meat) on rye (bready and carraway) with thousand island dressing(creamy tomato) thing going on which is fascinating. Low alcohol makes it highly quaffable. 90 pts
2008 Bethel Heights Oregon Pinot Gris (out of stock)
Review Date: 1-24-2010
Sad Dottie Face....was expecting more, kinda watery. 82 pts.
2007 Casa Ferreirinha "Esteva" Douro (out of stock)
Review Date: 1-19-2010
Day one: Some off putting chemical(?) flavors and some interesting funkyness with muted fruit followed by dry finish. Solid but lacking in deliciousness. 87 pts Improved signifigantly on day 2! Rounded out and integrated becoming more candied raspberry on finish. Weird flavors and funkyness are gone. 89pts
2006 Aurum Pinot Noir Central Otago (out of stock)
Review Date: 10-29-2009
Shockingly good for $10! Flavors and nose are right on . Only negative is short finish (but really can't complain.)
2007 Cave de Saumur Selection Rouge (out of stock)
Review Date: 10-3-2009
Not my cup of tea, a little too thin and sour. Better on day 2 and needs food.
2007 Bodegas J C Conde "El Arte de Vivir" Ribera del Duero (out of stock)
Review Date: 9-20-2009
Solid and waaayyy better than the overly oaky Valduero crianza IMO. Only downside is it's not that memorable or distinctively Ribera-ey.
2007 Kanonkop "Kadette" Cape Blend Stellenbosch (out of stock)
Review Date: 9-15-2009
Wow this reminds me so much of Wolftrap, which is probably the only other red South African wine I've had, but it's a totally different blend. I guess SA just has some really distinctively funky, meaty terrior because I really taste the similarity here. Gutsy, gamey, tar, smoky. Like the uniqueness but not the heat or the volatile acidity which is just slightly too high for me. definatley interesting but not for the faint of heart. 85 points.
2008 Neil Ellis "Sincerely" Sauvignon Blanc (out of stock)
Review Date: 9-13-2009
Not bad but I don't get what all the fuss is about. For me the fruit tastes under ripe. 85 points.
2004 Valduero Crianza Ribera del Duero (out of stock)
Review Date: 9-10-2009
Much too dominated by American oak for my pallate. A shame because it could have been a good wine. 79 pts
2008 Bodegas Shaya Verdejo "Old Vines" Rueda (out of stock)
Review Date: 9-9-2009
This has everything I'm looking for in a white; aromatics, pure vibrant fruit, minerality and perfect acidity! Better than the Naia(?) I'd had a few years ago.Kind of like between NZ sauv blanc and sancerre. 91 points
2007 Perrin & Fils Côtes du Rhône-Villages (out of stock)
Review Date: 9-6-2009
What's not to like? Rich cherries, garrigues, pepper followed by nice acidity and mineral on finish all for 11 bucks. 88 pts.
2007 Blason Cabernet Franc (out of stock)
Review Date: 9-4-2009
easy drinking cab franc with slight residual sugar. 87 pt
