Wine Moments

Here you can see wine moments from tastingbook users. or to see wine moments from your world.

James Laube, Wine Writer (United States)  had a tasting of  7 Wines  from  1 Producers 

Buccella Cabernet Sauvignon 2008; Remarkable for its complex aromas of roasted coffee, dried herb, dark berry, mocha and sage, yet for all its size this is quite graceful and elegant, even delicate, with a long, tapered finish where the flavors glide along smoothy.

James Laube, Wine Writer (United States)  had a tasting of  12 Wines  from  2 Producers 

Red Stich Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 is openly complex and charming, from the initial burst of zesty black cherry and raspberry flavors to the shades of loamy earth, gravel and cedar. Never loses sight of the fruit purity.
