• Bodegas Ordonez Triton Tinto de Toro 2011 Wine Review (NW)

      Tasting notes: Bouquet that's bold with dark berries and cocoa Full bodied on the palate Juicy dark berry finish, slightly tannic, with coffee and spice Summary: This is a lot of wine for $14-a value Tinto de Toro for sure. Made from Tempranillo, wines from this region of Spain are generally modern and full bodied. Prices are starting to creep up, so value wines like these are a good find.

    • Robert Hall Syrah (Paso Robles) 2011 wine review by (PB)

      Black Cherry hue with aromas of mulled blackberries with Christmas spice, and a touch of cherry cream. Palate--Tightly wound at the moment with woody smokey presence and austere plum and dark berry fruit. I don't remember what I paid for this but I am sure I bought it because it was on sale. Reference price seems to range about the $18 mark so I probably found it for $12 or so.

  • Petite Petit 2012 wine review by (PB)

    Deeply pigmented blackberry hue with aromas of jammy earthy blackberry with a hint of blueberry with the slightest suggestion of mocha and nice spice. Full fruit bomb presence with big plump berry flavor with a finish of clear milk chocolate. Lingering finish that reminds you of fresh blackberries bursting in your mouth.

  • Pietra Santa Zinfandel 2008 wine review by (PB)

    Garnet hue with aromas of robust spiciness with a unique odor that I can't pin down that seems to dissipate leaving light blackberry notes remaining Palate--tightly wound with staid fruit which I think just needs some time to open up and warm up; my cellar this time of year is right around 54 degrees which is perfect storage temp but I find a bit too cold to appreciate the nuances in a wine.

  • What Thanksgiving wine to serve?

    A Thanksgiving Day meal with friends and family provides a perfect opportunity to enjoy nice wine. Because so much fuss is made over food and wine pairings in general, I find people get a little stressed out about what to serve guest on this special day. Fortunately, many wines have a much broader range than they get credit for. With that in mind, I have some basic suggestions that might help.

  • OZV (Old Zin Vines) 2012 Sponsored wine review--by (PB)

    This Zin presents with an eye catching crystalline ruby/garnet hue. Aroma--Cinnamon "red hots" candy over cocoa and the more gentle, strawberry, Bing cherry fruit. Under neath it all there's a creamy vanilla nuance. Palate--Almost silky mouth feel, with relaxed tannins and loads of cocoa on top of the gentle, vanilla laced, juicy red fruit.
