  • 2012 Roth Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href=''>2012 Roth Estate Cabernet Sauvignon</a></b></font><br>The other cuvée I tasted is a 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley, primarily all Cabernet Sauvignon (98%) with just 1% of Merlot and Petit Verdot. This is a big cuvée of 9,941 cases, and again the pricing seems fair, especially for a wine at this level of quality. Full-bodied with a dense, ruby/purple color, and notes of new oak intermixed with blackcurrant, licorice, graphite and spice box, it possesses supple tannins, a subtle earthiness and a nice, long aftertaste. This is a heck-of-a mouthful of Cabernet Sauvignon that should age for at least a decade or more. The price is very modest.<br> Rating: 91  <a href= >Estimated Cost: $20-$30</a>

Every year since then, wine consumption has grown making the wine boom now 21 years old–old enough to buy itself a drink, legally, were it a human. But the growth, […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="">The wine boom turns 21 – but is acting aged</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
  • Why is champagne getting drier?
    <p>Champagnes seem to have been getting drier in recent years. What’s driving the trend? I put the question of declining Champagne dosage levels to Peter Wasserman today. Wasserman, along with his mother Becky, exports several grower champagnes including Godmé Pere et fils, José D’hondt, Camille Savès, and Vazart-Coquart. Wasserman said there are three main reasons.
