This Week in Wine

Put a Cork in it: Screwcap Wine Closures Are Not Endangering Animals! By Alder

Island Pleasures By Eric Asimov on Shinn Long Island merlot

Raymond "Rutherford" 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon By Ken. This bright cherry red colored wine was our favorite of the 2 entries from Raymond.

Concannon Petite Sirah Central Coast Limited Release 2005 $15 (Wine Spectator) By W.S. Rustic and chewy, but with good intensity to the red currant, cherry, plum, mineral and spice flavors. Drink now through 2017. 55,000 cases made. 86 points

The geometry of wine and multidimensional Riesling By Dr. Vino. The best wines of any grape are multidimensional. But with Riesling, people often get caught up only on sweetness. In fact, there’s other stuff going on, such as acidity and sometimes minerality.
