  • 2012 La Tour Carnet
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href='http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/th.aspx?th=162778&id=1&___z=UfPIazyN6p%2fTZ6ovGckBGg%3d%3d'>2012 La Tour Carnet </a></b></font><br>Part of the empire of Bernard Magrez, this blend of 61% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc is a sleeper of the vintage in 2012. Its excellent dense ruby/purple color, sweet cassis, black cherry fruit, supple tannins, medium to full body and attractive, long finish make for an impressive wine that should drink nicely for 10-15 years. It’s already accessible. This is another wine that performed dramatically better from the bottle than from barrel tastings. <br> Rating: 90  <a href=http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/pfio.aspx?id=162778 >Estimated Cost: $24-$56</a>

  • Why you don’t find winery restaurants in the US
    <p>Last year, one of Australia’s leading wineries, Henschke Vineyards, branched out. The Henschkes opened Hill of Grace, a fine dining restaurant in downtown Adelaide at the Adelaide Oval, a place filled with tradition and lore as cricket test matches are played among various national teams. The restaurant’s wine list is centered on a Henschke wines […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2015/06/25/winery-restaurants-us/">Why you don’t find winery restaurants in the US</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
