  1. Is it Time for a Wine Cabinet?

    Is it Time for a Wine Cabinet?

    Let me start by asking you a simple question; how much do you spend on wine each year?  For most people, the passion for wine starts with a bottle here and a bottle there.  The next thing you know, you have a wine rack on the kitchen counter with 8 bottles.  It might be time to start considering protecting the...

    EuroCave Wine Cabinets

    Cool Your Wine!

    Eurocave Elite Though you may have a “good” bottle of wine on your hands, serving it at an inappropriate temperature can completely ruin it.  As a rule, a wine should be served at a temperature where its flavors and aromas are most exposed.  This “ideal” temperature, of course, varies based on the wine.  Here are a few ballpark numbers: Warm...
  9. Wine Review: Le Grand Pinot Noir 2009

    Wine Review: Le Grand Pinot Noir 2009

    This rich, dark red hails from the Limoux region of Southern France.  With sufficient aroma, the Le Grand Pinot Noir 2009's nose consists of delightful red berries, cherries, raspberries, currants, and a note of fig.  The wine is rounded, and delights the taste buds with exploding flavors of red berries, cherries, and currants.  Its semi-spicy kick is nicely countered by...
  10. What’s the Optimal Wine Storage Temperature?

    What’s the Optimal Wine Storage Temperature?

    As we’ve discussed in previous blogs, the temperature at which a wine is stored (and served) can bring out the best (or worst) of a given bottle, but an entire wine collection can be at stake if “ideal” storage temperatures are not maintained.  Many big collections have been unnecessarily damaged because of such unstable temperatures.  For example, temperatures above 65ºF...
  11. Wine Review: Oracle of the Wind Western Cape Sauvignon Blanc 2009

    Wine Review: Oracle of the Wind Western Cape Sauvignon Blanc 2009

    This delicate white hails “from the sun, the rain, the wind, and the soil” of South Africa.  Though described as a “light yellow with flashes of green,” my glass appeared a surprising golden yellow of medium intensity, usually indicative of mature, concentrated whites.  Being a very affordable wine (I only paid $7.99 for a bottle), I knew not what to...

    When the Lights Go Out: Keeping Your Wine Safe in Hurricanes & Other Power Outages

    Residents of the East Coast recently experienced the wrath of Hurricane Irene.  For the fortunate individuals who did not incur serious property damage and flooding, there were other issues to contend with: power outages.  Some storms can leave areas without power for days, meaning your wine cooling units will not operate.  And who wants to see a multi-thousand dollar investment...
  13. Wine Review: Block Nine Caiden’s Vineyards Pinot Noir 2009

    Wine Review: Block Nine Caiden’s Vineyards Pinot Noir 2009

    This relatively inexpensive Pinot Noir is quite a treat!  Beautiful garnet in color, its nose consists of violet, iris, strawberries, and black cherries.  Its velvet-like texture is soothing to the tongue, and its body is solid.  For fans of sweeter Pinot Noirs, the Block Nine 2009 is a good find; the typical earthiness that turns people off from many Pinots...

    Many wine lovers face a dilemma.
