Wine Zealots News
It's Contest Time!

By: SenorPablo

For December 2011, once again, we are running the Points contest. We will be giving away a $25 Gift Certificate redeemable at Wine.com. This is a great chance to catch up on a good bottle you've been wanting to try. The way this will work is that starting at the beginning of the month, we will take a snap shot of everyone's total points. At the end of the month we will place the top 5 members with the highest new points earned during the month into a drawing and randomly pick 1 member from the 5 to win the $25 gift certificate. If you are a new member, say hi and introduce yourself in the Newbie Intro forum.

Points are awarded for Forum Posts, Wine Reviews, and Wine Database Entries. Since we are also trying to drive new members to the site we are going to add one additional way of generating points. For every new member registration added, we will award 10 points to the referring member. Just have the new member add a new thread in the Newbie Intro forum introducing themselves and mention the member who referred them and we will award 10 points to that referring member.

To follow the progress of the current points leaders click here. To review last months points click here.

Twisted Oak River of SkullsNES Tek11/22/2011 3:01:22 PM
Has this over a Halloween themed wine tasting. What a wine! It was incredible! It has a beautiful medium/dark red color. It has a bright fruity nose to it. There are flavors of tobacco, blackberries, a bit of leather, and herbs. The flavor lasted for a very long time after. I really enjoyed this and can;t wait to get back and drink it again!
Juve y Camps Brut Natural Cava Reserva de la FamiliaNES Tek11/22/2011 2:52:16 PM
got this from Wine.com. It was ok. the color was a very light hay. Not much of a nose on it. The flavor was pretty acidic, some sweetness. No yeastiness. Lots of bubbles, but not a very developed flavor. I think this could work well for mimosas or bellinis, but flying solo is not it's strong point.
Imagery Petite Syrah PortNES Tek10/12/2011 12:44:14 PM
This is a very dark wine. It's thick and clings to the glass well. The nose has hints of rich red cherry and strawberry. It also has a lot of heat on the nose as well. After a swirl and sip there are flavors consisting of cherry and strawberry. A bit of a pepper feel appears and is enhanced by the alcohol content a bit. There's a velvety lasting finish that smooths everything out. A very nice port that would pair well with some  harder cheese or a nice cigar.
Mumm Napa RenouveauNES Tek9/30/2011 2:36:55 PM
The wine has a light amber color with lots of small bubbles. It's beautiful to look at. The nose is pear wrapped in puff pastry. Very bold and loud, yet subtle. On the palate there's a crisp bite, then a mellow buttery feel. Granny smith apples are present. It's yeasty and has almost a light berry hint. A fantastic wine! I always love this wine and can't wait to drink more of it!
Beaulieu Vineyard Century Cellars ChardonnayNES Tek8/1/2011 1:23:14 PM
I got this as a free bottle at a restaurant (part of a TravelZoo deal). The nose had citrus, peach, and oak. This wasn't a very buttery chardonnay, which I liked. It was more acidic. it was very fruit forward, hints of spice and vanilla. I thought the acidity was a little high and not as balanced as I would like. For a free bottle, it worked just fine. If I had to pay for this, I would pay less than $10.
Wine Cube (Target) White SangriaNES Tek7/25/2011 12:29:32 PM
We go camping when we can with friends. We saw this and my wife thought it would be a good idea to try some. Always down to try something new I Agreed. It worked out well as we took the inside pouch of wine out of the box and put it in our cooler one night while camping. We then cut up some fruit (strawberries, peaches, etc.) and put it in a big pitcher. Pour in the sangria from the pouch and let it sit a bit. It provided a fantastic white sangria for the hot summer night camping. I can't wait to try it again!
Black Box Wines MerlotNES Tek7/25/2011 12:26:10 PM
First off, I'm not a big merlot fan. I find most of them to taste like dust and lack good flavor. That being said...
This wine has a great color and good nose with berries and plum. The taste has lots of berries and dark fruit. I even tasted some raisin. It was almost like it had port notes. I wasn't a huge fan. For the price though it's not half bad.
Chateau La Garde Pessac-Leognanqman225/18/2011 7:45:29 AM
This was a nice find, though a little expensive at about $30.  It had an oaky nose and nice berry and licorice flavors.  It was full bodied, but not overly dry.  It was actually kind of delicate in a way.  Very enjoyable.  
Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne NVakira5/4/2011 11:44:58 PM
Nice pale yellow color with excellent effervescence. The flavor is yeasty with a nice crisp, clean tartness.  The citrus is prominent along with a light brown sugar note. Overall, very good and a wine I'm sure to enjoy again.
Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne NVNES Tek4/30/2011 11:18:19 PM
This wine is excellent! Great toast notes. Apple, grapefruit. It has a great mouth feel to it. Not too heavy, not too light. It has a great acidity to it. Just a perfect bubbly to sip on with some friends on a sunny afternoon!
Kunde Estate Winery Estate Magnolia LaneNES Tek4/28/2011 11:38:14 AM
My wife and purchased a few cases of this for our wedding. We had almost a case left after, so having a few bottles at home to sip on was a nice bonus. This wine is a great value! We got it at our local Safeway for less than $10 (with a sale).

The wine is light in color, just a tinge of gold. The aromas consist of floral notes, citrus, and melon. A sip provides a nice grassy layer, grapefruit, papaya, pinapple, and another light nectary fruit I can't put my finger on.

I usually have a bottle of this in the fridge. It's a great wine to come home to and sip on a glass or two. And for the vlaue, I'll most likely buy another case once this is out.
Santa Barbara Winery ZCSNES Tek3/31/2011 11:57:38 AM
I picked this up while in Santa Barbara one weekend. My friends and I had dinner the night before when I first tried this wine. I really liked it, pairing very well with Italian good. The next day I went over to the winery and ended up getting a bottle.

I opened this the other night to accompany a pizza we got for dinner. The wine by it's self has a great nose. Earth and cherry. The flavor is emense berry, cherries, dried cherries, some good supporting spice. It worked perfectly with the pizza. I actually preferred it paired with food, rather than on it's own.

What a great wine for a very food price, Maybe once I have more room to store wine I'll pick up a case.
Fattoria La Lecciaia Brunello di Montalcino Riservaqman223/26/2011 1:08:28 PM
Found this brunello at a great price of $25 and gave it a shot.  It was almost oppressive when first opened with tight flavors and hard tannins.  After about an hour of air exposure it loosened nicely turning into a balanced, smooth wine with nice cherry and earthy flavors, while maintaining a nice oaky dryness.  I would buy it again.
Sutter Home Winery White Zinfandel CaliforniaPA.pierced2/6/2011 2:53:22 PM
Fruity nose, sweet but not overpowering. Paired well with my pasta dish and by itself.  Detected fruity/berry flavors. Crisp finish.  Decent drinking wine for the price.
Domaine Chandon L'Argile Carneros Reserve Pinot NoirNES Tek1/31/2011 6:38:37 PM
I got to try this wine thanks to Antoine, our favorite pour host at Chandon. This wine blew my socks off! It's a very different Pinot Noir. The color is a dark ruby-brown. You can see it has some good age on it. Initially you might think that the wine has turned a bit, but you would be wrong! the nose has lots of bright berries including great notes of strawberry and cranberry. There's also just a tinge of earth to it as well, keeping it closer to the typical Pinot Noir most would drink. After a sip your palate is covered in this silky smooth wine. The tannins are so subtle, but are the perfect supporter for this wine. There's great cherries, strawberries and blackberries. Some oakiness (not a real word, but I'm using it), as well as some spices I couldn't pick out. I absolutely loved this wine!!! this could pair so well with lots of dishes. It's very pretty pricy, even with a member discount. I'll have to keep an eye out to see if Chandon has a big sale for these. You must try this wine!
