Kelly’s Revenge Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

The wine vendor insisted that I buy this. I did buy 2 of these and kept it in my cellar yesterday. That was history, after the dinner (& midnight snack)these are now empty bottles as of this morning


First time I tried this and I did not regret it. Good wine.

From Australia. The taste beats my usual French Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wow! That's some collection you got going on there!

I don't have the room to keep more than a few bottles at a time in my tint tiny flat and even if I do have a few they are very lucky to see more than one Saturday afternoon.

Recently I have been enjoying Merlot. Thicker the better.

I gave up smoking just over a year ago and I think my taste buds have started growing back.

Do you prefer Merlot over Cabernet Sauvignon? Based on your list, it looks like it.

I also noticed most of your collections are French wine. I personally prefer wines from Chile, Italy & Australia. But I also like several French wine though few selected ones.

I prefer Carmenere above all, next to Shiraz & Cabernet Sauvignon. I am not really a Merlot fan.

I managed to recently obtain almost a full case of Leoville-Barton (my freind took a couple bottles) to add to the cellar. I have a fairly extensive collection of Italian reds, mostly Super-tuscans, Chaintis and Amarones (I like the heavy stuff). I have a decent amount of French Bordeauxs and and Burgundys, most of which are not ready to drink. Although I have a small amount of California red I find I gravitate towards the old world style of wine and I constantly seek out little known vineyards. I am fortunate to have a freind who is acquainted with Leo Lacasio of Winebow, they are one of the best importers in my opinion and his selections are very eclectic. We often get first crack at some of the more interesting new products arriving from Italy.

I am not seeing Fred t posting about wines anymore. So what's the latest in your wine cellar?


The past holiday season became an italian parade in my wine cellar.

Chiantis, yups full of Chiantis, by Antinori & Frescobaldi. (Antinori is really good but a bit expensive compared to affordable Frsecobaldi) Some Toscanas as well. All 100% Sangiovese. I also had Woodbrigde California Cabernet Sauvignon, & Chateau de Pampelonne. These are surprisingly good.

I have a 1996 Chateau Latour a Pomerol that I've been saving for some time (it was a gift) and which I will be drinking at tonights gathering/meal.

Should be lovely - but I think I might keep it for myself and buy some cheap plonk.
It's just too good for the peasants

I'm not wealthy enough to be a "wine snob," however I do love a good wine. My personal favorite at the moment is the 2004 MezzaCorona Pinot Grigio. For something like $10, the price is unbeatable. If you are a fan of the temperamental grape, this wine is clear, crisp, and refreshing. It goes down very smooth, is not sweet, but neither is it overly dry. "Crisp" is really the best word I can think of to describe it. For those that follow points, it scored an 88.

A lot of people think you have to spend a lot of money to get a really good quality wine, but the truth is, many of the best tasting vintages are under $40. Higher expense typically indicates rarity and/or paying for the brand's name, neither are an indication of taste.

Couldn't agree more.

In fact one my favorite great tasting red wines is Carmenere from Chile, as long as it is Carmenere from Chile, any brands will do. Yet, it is cheap.

My wine cellar is modest in quantity but excellent in quality. Since I'm spanish, I only have Rioja and Ribera del Duero red wines. I've heard many people say that drinking other than red wine is a terrible waste of time. I agree.

I also appreciate Chianti Classico. It's common for both italian and spanish wines not to have an addition of sugar, because both countries have a lot of sun, which is not the case with other european wines, such as the french or the german.

This is so for the time being; hopefully the climatic change will not spoil spanish wines.

I just tried one of my treasured bottles in my cellar last night,

Badia a Passignano Riserva
Antinori 2003 Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva.

It's 100% Sangiovese

As usual, that little pink DOCG seal on top of the bottle did not fail my expectations.
