  • 2012 Beringer Proprietary Red The Waymaker
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href='http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/th.aspx?th=304253&id=1&___z=QstwHeiyyFw8f%2fP4IwFGOQ%3d%3d'>2012 Beringer Proprietary Red The Waymaker</a></b></font><br>A new offering and another terrific value, the 2012 Proprietary Red The Waymaker is a blend from Paso Robles. (I know it shouldn’t be included in a Napa report). This 6,000-case cuvée is a blend of 57% Syrah, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petite Sirah and Mourvèdre. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by notes of sweet black cherries, raspberries, and dusty, loamy, peppery, meaty, lavender notes. With a Rhône Ranger-like style, it offers medium to full-bodied, mouthfilling, savory flavors and no hard edges. This beauty should be consumed over the next 4-5 years for its boisterous gusto. For its size and prominence, the St. Helena flagship Beringer winery does a remarkable job with the quality of its offerings. They have been fortunate to choose a brilliant line-up of chief winemakers, from Ed Sbragia, to Laurie Hook. The following group of wines, coming primarily from 2012 for the reds, and 2012 and 2013 for the whites, is one of the strongest I have tasted with them. That is reassuring when you consider the enormous size of the umbrella Treasury Estates that owns Beringer. Importer(s): Beringer, (866) 708-9463, www.beringer.com<br> Rating: 90  <a href=http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/pfio.aspx?id=304253 >Estimated Cost: $16-$25</a>

  • Canadian fisticuffs! Sipped & spit
    <p>Oh, Canada! Check out this 5-minute radio segment from CBC wherein to Canadian wine personalities start sparring verbally–and then literally–in the studio. And there’s no hockey involved. Good stuff. Very Monty Python-esque. You will be LOLing. In other wine news: AU REVOIR and BONJOUR: Jacques Puffeney, a viticultural leader in the Jura, has sold his […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2014/12/12/canadian-fisticuffs-sipped-spit/">Canadian fisticuffs!

  • Wine picks from my NYU class
    <p>In my six-week NYU class ended recently. In the class, we taste six wines (blind) around a certain theme every week and I poll people on their visceral reaction to each wine before we discuss it. The wines that have weak polling numbers have to be put out to pasture or run for election in […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2014/12/10/ridge-three-valleys/">Wine picks from my NYU class</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
  • A white truffle sells for $61,250
    <p>White truffles are a rare delicacy: The short season for the mushrooms, the stratospheric prices ($2,000 a pound is not uncommon) and the intense aromas and flavors make this mostly something for the world’s super rich. Shaving a few grams of a white truffle on a dish such as risotto can send the price at […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2014/12/08/largest-white-truffle-auction/">A white truffle sells for $61,250</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
