1996 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc  
Review Date: 10-7-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Not bad, but lacking in fruit or depth. I'm not sure if it's the vintage or the age of the wine, but this seemed a bit lifeless. For the money, I think the 2008 Bordeaux are a better bet.

Off-tasting and overripe. I'm a big fan of Saumur chenin blanc, just not this one. Good for cooking with.

2008 Eric Bordelet "Doux" Sydre (apple) (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-7-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
This reminds me of unfiltered, unpasteurized cider one would buy in the fall from roadside stands back East: deep orange-brown ciders with a hint of spritz as they naturally started to ferment. The Eric Bordelet has the fizziness and alcohol of hard cider with the delicious fruit of those roadside apple ciders. This should go well with traditional fall dishes.

2009 Dr. Pauly Bergweiler Bernkasteler Badstube Kabinett (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-7-2011

A delicate Kabinett with a straw color and an ethereal balance of minerals and delicate fruit. I could drink this all day.

2009 Foxglove Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-5-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
When first opened, this wine was tannic and bitter, with little spices or licorice and even less sweet flowers. The second night from a previously opened bottle it seemed to open up a bit, with hints of tobacco and saddle leather. I wouldn't call it balanced, but it's a serious wine for the price.

2007 Gloria Ferrer Carneros Pinot Noir (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-5-2011

The predominant flavor is strawberry with a hint of earth or forest floor. A solid value for pinot in this price range, I would give it 88 points out of 100.

2009 Domaine des Hautes Troglodytes Saumur Champigny (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-4-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Red wines from the Loire are a ways off the beaten track, as neither the region nor the primary grape, cabernet franc, are well known. These wines can be well worth a visit. Jon Bonne of the SF Chronicle described this particular wine as "beetroot and fermented tea, roasted cherry, sea salt and mirabelle plum".

2007 Domaine Germain Père & Fils St-Romain Blanc (out of stock)  
Review Date: 9-29-2011

I agree with the lemon cream description, while on the second day the flavor was more noticeably woody. I usually like the Burgundian style of chardonnay, but at this price I think California chardonnay and Loire chenin blanc have more to offer.

2008 Vine Hill Winery "Scintilla Vineyard" Carneros Pinot Noir (out of stock)  
Review Date: 9-28-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Not bad for pinot noir in this price range. I find the tannins a bit bitter and the flavors a little raw and unintegrated. This might actually benefit from a year or two of aging.

2009 Domaine de l'Auriere Muscadet Sèvre et Maine sur Lie (out of stock)  
Review Date: 9-25-2011

Dry, crisp, fruity, and refreshing. Muscadet is a classic wine to accompany shellfish, and this one paired beautifully with paella. It's a solid value at $10 and a steal at $6.

2001 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc  
Review Date: 9-13-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Dry and austere with a characteristic note of dust or earth but little fruit to speak of. I paired it with a grilled steak, and the wine was overwhelmed by the grilled meat flavors. It's a pleasant wine, but I was hoping for more.

1996 Bollig Lehnert Piesporter Goldtröpfchen Riesling Spätlese (out of stock)  
Review Date: 8-31-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Spatleses are famously long-lived, so I was eagerly looking forward to the 1996 Bollig Lehnert Piesporter Goldtropfchen. Unfortunately both bottles I tried seemed oxidized, with a golden color, a woody taste, and little of the luscious fruit or acidity I expected.

2008 Edmunds St. John "Bone-Jolly" Whitters Vineyard El Dorado County Gamay Noir (out of stock)  
Review Date: 8-22-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
The 2008 Edmunds St. John "Bone-Jolly" Whitters Vineyard El Dorado County Gamay Noir reminds me a bit of Pez candies, or the Yago sangria I used to drink back in the 70's. It's a lightly fizzy, fruity concoction with a chemical taste that resembles cherry soda more than wine.

2008 Merkelbach Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Kabinett #23 (out of stock)

A bit on the lighter side, but the real deal: a Mosel Riesling Kabinett with the characteristic minerals, acidity, delicacy, and balance that no other region in the world seems able to match. At $12.99 this is a steal.

2005 d'Escurac, Medoc (out of stock)  
Review Date: 4-21-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Bordeaux are supposed to age well, and 2005 was a very good vintage. So it was a surprise to me that the 2005 D'Escurac is tired and lifeless -- not much fruit and no tannins to speak of. It's disappointing for this price point.
