  • As per your OP's title, JD, next a look at CA. From the Wine Institute:"Chardonnay, with 95,000 acres, is the wine type variety with the most acreage planted in California."Cabernet Sauvignon was the second most planted winegrape in California with 76,800 total acres."The red wine category for the second year in recent history edged out white wi...

  • Situated as far north as Pinot Noir is cultivated in Bourgogne, Irancy is a little known treasure representing tremendous value. Situated in the Grand Auxerrois region, Irancy lies on the right bank of the Yonne river, a short drive southwest of Chablis. Here, red wines are produced exclusively.The same Kimmeridgean marl and brown limestone soil... Read More

  • Yeah but it's tough. He said edge of the rust belt - not sure where exactly that is but  you don't have to go very far into New Jersey or Ohio to realize that the wines available in NYC and San Francisco aren't the norm.One of the problems is that people buy by brand and if not that, by variety. For example, "Chianti" is something people know. I... Read More

  • Little known by most wine consumers, Saint Bris is an unusual wine that seems ... away in the far north of Bourgogne in close proximity to Chablis, Saint Bris is the only AOP in Bourgogne where Sauvignon Blanc may be grown. And it is fascinating to learn that the soils in Saint Bris are nearly identical to those of Sancerre in the Loire Valley ... Read More

  • I went through a few cases of their wine from the late '70s through the late '80s. Vintages from the late '50s through the early '80s. Not because I thought they were all that and then some, but because of a connection I had that meant I was paying half price, and that was back when prices were a lot lower than now. They became daily quaffers wh... Read More

  • Thanks for all the detailed reportage, Vino. Frankly, no surprise here, whatsoever, about your syrah findings.Good to hear you liked the Au Bon Climat pinot. Haven't personally had a good one in a long time, at least a decade. However, few of their offerings make it over here, plus there's always the potential for travel damage. They were a labe...

  • Very good list.Chateau St Michelle and Columbia Crest are sister wineries, CC a couple of bucks less usually but both good quality for the price. That Willamette Valley PN is one of the few that I would ever buy - it's actually pretty good but it's vintage-specific so if you don't like one, you can look for a different vintage. It can run up to ... Read More

  • Red - one of the problems with recs for places like World Market and Total Wine is that you have to get the recommendations from someone in your area. The stores will have similar wines in most places, but there may be local differences, based on what's available from the local distributors. My suggestion is to look at Costco if there's one near...

  • Redagic - welcome. It's a bit late on page 3 but WTH.. I would prefer a Cab or a Malbec personally. Are those considered to be sweet ? Because I really don`t like sweet wine, at least sweet according to my palate. Our friend saw the movie "Sideways" and is convinced that a Pinot Noir is the wine he wants to try. He went to a tasting with us one ... Read More
