Montoya Monterey Pinot Noir 2005

Date: Fri, Jun 6, 2008 Wine Tasting

Not too light, not too heavy, that sums up the body of this very affordable Pinot Noir. The flavor profile is like breakfast in a wine glass. First, there is a waft of smoked ham, and that gives way quickly to strawberries, dried cherries, red currant preserves and sweet spice....

Boxhead Shiraz Cabernet 2006

Date: Thu, Jun 5, 2008 Wine Tasting

Whenever ten bucks can get this much bang, I'll take it. Better yet, nine-ninety-nine. Some people are dialing up the creativity, thinking out of the box, and finding ways to counterpoise vinflation.

Date: Sun, Jun 1, 2008 Wine Tasting

As luck usually has it, I frequently show up just as a "Research and Development" session is just underway at Frugal MacDoogal's. A wine like this one might not otherwise cross my palate. Noteworthy as it may be, one of Dan Kravitz' "Hand Picked Selections", who knows if I would...

Seasons Change: Winewaves Is Over (for now)

Date: Sat, Nov 17, 2007 Wine Tasting

Regular readers of Winewaves have noticed the slowing pace of new pieces in 2007. For the first 2 years I tried to keep a daily pace of providing new pictures and reviews here. Winewaves began in February of 2005, but it's over. At least for now. Like many other well-intentioned...

The Hunt for October Red

Date: Mon, Oct 22, 2007 Wine Tasting

Click for a larger picture of these bottles. The hunt for October red has turned up a whole lot of alternatives. Here are four to get the week off on the right track. I love them all and have repeated them in search of my favorite. I can't say which...
