What I like about wine:

I love the fact that wine blends history, biology, chemistry, marketing and pleasure into a compact bottle. As the director of Education & Content for Wine.com, I love to teach wine & share wine - there is always something new to learn.

    Abadia Retuerta Seleccion Especial 2009
    $32.00 $26.65
    Save $5.35 (17%)
    Style: Big & Bold
    Rich, ripe - a big, modern style Ribera del Duero. Mulberry and blackberry and some spice flood the nose, almost Zinfandel style. Palate has good structure that reminds you you are in the old world and may want to put this down for a while. Nice finish. Guessing this would be a huge winner at any dinner party. But remember it needs food! and possibly some age.

    wonderful reserva - still tasting so fresh. Lovely dried fruit and spice and violets in the nose, but on the palate, the brightness is still there with red fruit, touch of pepper and wonderful structure and length.

    Kenwood Artist Series Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

    Style: Big & Bold
    WOW. This wine is an elegant, yet dense Sonoma Cabernet. I'd want to lie this down, but at the same time, it's super tempting to drink now. Really expressive and lifted in aromatics. The palate is so balanced - not heavy, but still has power. I'll call it powerful finesse. Delicious :)
