    • SIDURI WINERY’S 2012 SANTA LUCIA HIGHLANDS PINOT NOIR

      “Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words.” … Plautus Siduri is another example of wineries began by first generation winemakers who have garnered acclaim and a cult following of wine lovers; in this case lovers of Pinot Noir. Founded in 1994 by Adam and Diana Lee on a shoe string budget, the Lees have developed Siduri into a winery producing more than twenty ...

    • KRUTZ FAMILY CELLARS SYRAH 2009

      “Men are like wine. Some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.” … Pope John XXIII There is an unfortunate side effect to labeling terms used on wine labels, and the fault – I think – lies with us and in how we conjure what the term means. The term “reserve,” for example, has no legal meaning.

  • Malivoire, Gamay, VQA Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, 2013, 12.5% abv, C$17.95

    … Gamay. This wine is pretty with a medium ruby shade and light legs; it looks like pomegranate juice. On the nose it’s young and full of ripe red fruit – pomegranate, field berry, strawberry and raspberry – with sweet clove and cedar frond. The palate is dry but offers an off dry feel with medium minus soft tannins which would make this simply…

    … shipping costs and thus, the price of the wine. Sounds good to me. The wine is deep ruby with big legs and on the nose it’s loaded with blackberry, currant, black cherry, cedar and tobacco leaf, baking spices and strong minerality. The blackberry fairly leaps from the glass. On the palate it’s dry but offers an impression of residual sugar. The acidity…

  • Tantalus, Pinot Noir, Okanagan Valley VQA, BC, 2010, 13.4% abv

    … Christmas is fast approaching and I always love to have a Pinot alongside the turkey and cranberry sauce. Gamay wines, Pinot Noirs and even Cab Francs go swell with holiday bird. They’re light enough and the tannins are subtle to mimic the sauces and reflect well upon the root veggies. This version of Pinot Noir as per Tantalus is a medium…

    … “Wine is sunlight held together by water.” … Galileo Gallilei I should not be liking this wine. I am, after all, a Francophile by taste And although I’ve tasted some domestic Pinot Noir using Burgundian yeast and clones and another from New Zealand (same clones, and again with the yeast) and have enjoyed them - doing this only served…

Textbook aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, pectin, clove, black tea, and wisps of smoky oak make a delightful first impression. This red follows through on the palate. It is both bright and lively and rich and silky, with a light grip…

    …, velvety tannins – only a few edges here. The acidity is medium plus and the body is satisfyingly full with average alcohol and no boozyness to speak of. The flavours are medium plus and exude more blueberry, plum, berry along with crushed thyme and anise, vine and refreshing mint. This wine is clean, balanced, layered and has beautiful fruit. Drink…

  • Lacaze Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

    … This Chilean wine came in a big heavy bottle, the broad shouldered type favoured by Californian winemakers. I did double check it wasn’t a Californian wine based on bottle shape and weight alone. It’s not. It’s a Chilean wine made by a French winemaker. This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Cachapoal Valley south of Santiago. Oddly…

    … is surprisingly smooth and supple. Mr. Trollope (see quote above) obviously never tasted Saint-Roche. If you’re looking for a winter wine somewhat on the chewy side or something to go with beef, this is a good choice. At 14.5% alcohol, which by French standards is high, this wine packs some heat that you’ll feel on the back taste with black pepper. A great…

    … Any excuse – yes, give me one and I’ll open up a GSM. In this case, I can blame having to open that lovely blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre on my 17 year old’s birthday dinner. I noticed on the back label Langmeil actually lists the varietals as Syrah, Mataro and Grenache. I’ve never seen Mataro used before – but of course, Mataro…

It has quite an intense flavour of fruit, those raspberries and blueberries are still there, along with the cedar wood. There’s cinnamon and a little licorice too. It turns out the oak used in making the wine is American and French…
