  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • Thanks so much for the response. However, not quite the answer I was hoping for, but this is not a bad thing. I was in search of some type of structured criteria to use as a basis for my wine descriptions. You have made an excellent point about perception. How could the term "Medium-plus body" possibly mean the same thing to more than one person... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Wine description terms


  • I've been watching some YouTube videos of Sommeliers participating in a blind tasting. There's some terms they are using that I am curious about.They use the terms "Medium" or "Medium-Plus" when describing things like viscosity or aromatic intensity.

  • Well, most of those were from Cali, and I've had and liked most. I ordered some of the York Creek a couple weeks ago. You'll never get me to poo poo Mondavi--even after the takeover, they continue to produce good wines.  I buy them less because I'd rather support smaller producers, but the material and winemaking are still usually quite good. Th...

  • Sadly I did Not. I had a busy weekend that involved wine, but sadly that was mostly inventorying, packing, and moving wine around the state of NY! Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley. Funny how Dunn was ... Read More

  • I am fairly new to wine and am just learning about all the different types and regions of wine.  I tend to lean towards the more dry and red wines.. I was looking for a summer wine, one I could drink chilled.. I have recently discovered the "unoaked" chardonnays and I love them.. Is there any other types that fall close to this category?  Especi... Read More

  • What are the "must-have-wines" when you visit a wine bar?  Or just stuff you'd really like to see. This can become tricky with "by-the-glass" stuff, because I imagine people can become quite cautious with a glass of wine above the $12 figure. Any insights?? Read More
