It's time to say goodbye (to blogger)

No, I'm not abandoning this blog - just moving it. I have my own domain now and have set up a nice new website running wordpress. I have enjoyed using blogger for this blog but I am moving on now to better things. I have consolidated all my blogs under one umbrella - You can find my wine tasting notes at: or or They all point to the same place.

See you in my domain!

La Millière Châteauneuf-du-Pape

I tasted the 2004 La Millière Châteauneuf-du-Pape from the Rhone Valley. A complex wine with aromas of red currant and strawberry with some peat. The flavors of red fruits comes through right away with red cherries on the mid palate. This wine has a nice focussed acidity that goes well with the fruit. Rated 92 pts by Steve Tanzer and I agree with that.

2006 Sainte-Croix Vin de Pays D'oc

This wine is 50% syrah and 50% merlot. The nose is big with black fruits and hints of fennel and anise. On the palate it is a little thin with a very short finish. It has a nice acidity that attacks the palate in a pleasant way. Flavors of black cherries, blackberries and brambleberries hit you right up front. A nice 87 point effort for only $5 !!! Watch more.

2007 Sauvion Vouvray

I tasted this vouvray recently and thought highly of it. I love the zesty pineapple that comes through on the nose and on the palate. I was very impressed with the super long finish on this wine. I have to say this was significantly diminished when I tasted the wine chilled. I adore this wine when it is close to room temperature. The mouth feel was smooth and satiny. I would give it 89 points. You can see more in the video.

2004 Three Miners Pinot Noir

I recently tasted a very nice pinot noir from New Zealand. The 2004 Three Miners pinot noir impressed me and I would say it's about a 90-91 point wine.
