Critic Notes

Medium to deep ruby-purple colored, the 2015 Pinot Noir Moonshine Ranch offers floral notes of roses and lavender over a core of black berries, mulberries, red plums and Chinese five spice.

A sheltered existence geographically coupled with a lack of business savvy has, for many centuries, meant it never quite achieved the same global acclaim that ...

2012 Vintage in Champagne: A Versatile Classic
There is a great deal of buzz surrounding the 2012 Champagne vintage. What started earlier this year as a few quiet releases of impressive prestige cuvees from interesting producers of all shapes and sizes is quickly growing into the undeniable ‘next big thing’.  After a flurry of hotly anticipated 2008s, it is clear that 2012 is the new Champagne vintage ...

For example, in France, Bordeaux is best known for its red blends dominated by Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and white blends using Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc; Burgundy has Pinot Noir and Chardonnay; Alsace is defined by its Rieslings, Gewurztraminers, Pinot Gris and Muscats and so on. However one country which is ...
