Silver Palm ‘06 Cabernet $16

Date: Tue, May 5, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

It was claimed to be restaurant only for the 2005 vintage, but most shops seemed to have it. Some were asking almost $30 Thinking they had a real find that no one could get and it was worth the money. But then slowly it leaked out that this was a real bargain and could be [...]

Kaiken Ultra Cab ‘06 $19 Argentina

Date: Fri, May 1, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

This is almost all cab 4% malbec thrown in, since they make a pretty good malbec. Deep red cherry nose, its subtle though. On the palate you get the berry, some tobacco flavors, casis. Its doing a good job of tasting like a cab, NOT from Agentina. I find it easy to drink as did [...]

Cosentino The Zin ‘06 $18 Lodi

Date: Wed, Apr 29, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

As you may have read WCW is a big fan of Cosentino. This wine in particular was a reason I jumped in a bunch of years ago. However this vintage left me wanting more for the gang over there off 29. The fruit was like a dark chocolate covered black cherry, dense and as some like [...]

Franciscan Cabernet ‘05 Napa $18

Date: Tue, Apr 28, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

This guy says Cabernet, but is a blend.  87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 2% Cabernet Franc, Petite Verdot and Malbec. While it may not make anyones top 100, its not bad. Its a dark red wine. Black Cherry even a bit of plumb on the nose.  Look for a brighter berry taste, not quite raspberry but close. [...]

Real nice floral berry fruit. Smooth and silky earth tone with a bit of spice that finishes the glass nicely. Sonoma Coast, brings that soil and earth that you expect. Not over the top in any way, a real easy beautiful wine to drink. Not what you might expect from Nickel & Nickel, I think of them [...]

Nickel & Nickel 06 Harris Merlot $50

Date: Sat, Apr 25, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Another favorite out of  my cellar.  2006 Harris merlot about $50. Nothing like good single vineyard wines. You get a true feel of the terroir.  You will taste the full on Oakville style fruit. Bluberry/ Cherry dark fruit. A cedar edge comes from the French oak barrels. This is a top tier merlot for sure. Blind taste [...]

Altamura Sauv Blanc 06 $39

Date: Fri, Apr 24, 2009 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Very crisp finish, smooth on the palet. I notice a sesame nose, which is interesting. It really reminds me of some of the white I drank in France. A nice wine for anyone who likes whites for sure. As a primarily red drinker I see this as a great day time wine or summer on [...]
