  • 2009 Erasmo Reserva de Caliboro
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href='http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/th.aspx?th=245369&id=1&___z=IzsjEaMLnw%2fIG93QBUk17Q%3d%3d'>2009 Erasmo Reserva de Caliboro</a></b></font><br>The 2009 Erasmo is a different animal altogether, feeling much older than any of their other wines, with an evolved robe, a brick-colored border quite classical of the grapes here, 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Merlot with just a dash of Syrah. It also has tertiary aromas of leather, raw meat and brick dust with some plums and flowers in the background. Its full-bodied palate with abundant, thick tannins in the process of being polished give it an appealing rustic touch. Drink now-2018. Francesco Marone Cinzano moved from Col d’Orcia to Cauquenes, in Maule, a very hard- to-reach region where you can grow vines without irrigation, and joined forces with the family that owns this vineyard in Reserva de Caliboro. He was looking for something similar to Montalcino (at the same time his sister Noemi created a winery in Argentina in Rio Negro, Noemia, with her partner Hans Vinding-Diers). They planted new vineyards in 1998. Importer: Palm Bay International, Port Washington, NY; tel. (516) 802-4765; www.palmbay.com<br> Rating: 89  <a href=http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/pfio.aspx?id=245369 >Estimated Cost: $24-$27</a>

  • Napa quake registers 6.0
    <p>An area south of Napa was the center of a big earthquake overnight. The 6.0 quake, the biggest in the Bay Area in 25 years, shook wine barrels and bottles off of shelves and onto the ground. What the damage is remains to be seen; we hope that it is fixable and that the barrels […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2014/08/24/napa-quake-wine/">Napa quake registers 6.0</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
  • LA County tries to crush Malibu wine
    <p>California…celebrities…vineyards…Throw in some hills, glitzy real estate with water views and it sounds like a match made in some screenwriter’s Heaven. But LA County authorities are taking a dim view of such a scene. The part they find objectionable, oddly, are the vines! Yes, what is now LA was the home to some of the […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2014/08/19/malibu-wine/">LA County tries to crush Malibu wine</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
