Three Steves Cabernet Pfeffer, 2012

Strong pepper taste, oddly a ‘squash flavor’, overall tart with some barrel tastes, cranberry tart and baked goods, but well balanced for all the outlier tastes. Link to winemaker. Effective 7/10.


Clos Da Tafall Priorat, 2011

This wine took a long time to open up — I am reviewing the day after opening. Very dry until it opens up with green tannin, dark, purple fruit. 25 more words

Bodega Elena de Mendoza Red 2013

Wine from the slightly depressing drug store at the subway stop?  I’ve bought tubes of toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, etc. there as a convenience.  Saw the wines located near the sodas but never stopped to look – for years – until a couple of weeks ago.  122 more words
