Delicious White Blend from Argentina and Domaine Bousquet

gaia

There are plenty of wines which get cerebral review comments, and lengthy descriptions of how complex and different they are. We love complex wines, and can sometimes wax poetic about it (although we do try to avoid that). Sometimes, though, the best descriptive of a wine is simply that it is delicious. Let’s take a

Riesling – One of the Great White Wines: Some Examples from Dr. H. Thanisch

Doctor's Vineyard

Riesling is clearly among the great white wine grapes in the world, capable of producing refreshing whites, complex and profound whites, and long lasting, age worthy whites. They can range from dry to very sweet. Some can bring significant body and complexity. It is a broad canvas.

Mosel River Hillside Vineyards

Traditionally, the home

Two Excellent Blends from the South of France

Bila-Haute 1

In the south of France, along and near the Mediterranean Coast, there is a huge wine making region in the Languedoc-Roussillon. Here the weather is warmer, and they grow a wide variety of both white and red grapes. The region extends from the Spanish border all the way to Provence, internationally recognized home of Rosé.

Some Worthy Reds from Our Holiday Week

There is always wine involved with our holiday celebrations. Red, white, bubbly, port, they all make an appearance. Our daughter and son-in-law don’t drink at all, but they are great sports, as well as wonderful designated drivers. The rest of us do enjoy the wines.

When I polled the family as to what they might

Domaine du Castel – A Look at This Year’s Releases

IMG_1310

We discovered Domaine du Castel last year at the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival, and just loved the wines. We were also incredibly surprised, never having tried any top end wines from Israel before. They are fabulous. If you’d like to read more about our first impressions you can read our article by clicking

2014 Don Melchor Cabernet Sauvignon – Continued Excellence from Chile and Concha y Toro

don melchor

There are many iconic wines in the world. If you happen to be a wine aficionado, or really just someone interested in wine, you can probably rattle off five or ten. Chateau Latour, Chateau Margaux, DRC (Domaine Romanee-Conti) from Burgundy, Chateau Rayas, Unico from Vega Sicilia, Penfolds Grange, Screaming Eagle, Gaja, Masseto, etc., etc. Every

A Good Value Cabernet and Malbec Blend from Argentina

Capture

Argentina is known for great red wine, primarily from either Malbec or Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The high elevation vineyards in the Andes seem perfectly matched for these two varietals, and we have enjoyed both great value wines and high end classics from the region. Here we review a value priced blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and

Merlot Can be Great – Try These from Winemaker Chris Carpenter

IMG_1297

We’ve mentioned it before here at Red Wine Please, how the movie Sideways ruined the reputation of Merlot in the United States for a very long time. To be fair, there was a lot of mediocre Merlot, and the criticism levied by the movie was on point with those. What many don’t realize, because they

Beaujolais Nouveau Day – Uncorked and Delicious with Georges Duboeuf

IMG_1341

Today is the day that Beaujolais Nouveau was celebrated in France with parties and fanfare. The young Gamay based wine is fresh and fruity, in general, and meant to be consumed young. Don’t confuse this with more serious Beaujolais, which can age and be quite deep and complex. The Nouveau wine is for now, it’s

Two Value Carmeneres from Chile

IMG_1298

The Carmenere grape has a long history, and was a standard part of a typical Bordeaux blend up until the mid-1800s. Then the Phylloxera scourge hit Europe, and much of the existing vineyards were devastated. When the industry recovered using new, Phylloxera resistant rootstock, the Carmenere grape was sort of forgotten in Bordeaux. They did
