American syrahs here than Bourgueil cab francs, that's for sure!  ;-(Not really my place to suggest this to you, Greg, but I would be interested to hear the group's take on Cayuse.

  • Lots of people who drink sherry in Tokyo. And a hell of a lot easier to find good sherry than good Loire red.  Two more shops, two more strikes (five so far, hope I get a hit before the inning ends). Smatterings of whites and roses, no Loire CF to save my life. I could've found more 20 years ago, far more easily, than in 2014. Says something abo... Read More

  • San Diego is just kind of like that unfortunately. There's a decent music scene, and some good food, weather, but it's the surf/ frat scene that's hard to shake. I was there for college for years and grew tired of it by the second year. Read More

  • "one of them they thought Bourgueil was in Italy.."That's only fair:  I was called for jury service last summer, and who did I wind up sitting next to in the waiting room but a young sommelier who worked as an assistant somm at Meadowood.  We got to talking about wines and I said that the Bay Area has a really limited selection of Italian wines....

  • Sorry Greg, I shouldn't go posting so late. Here it is, the Wine ConnectionThey score a little better on the Chinon scale at 7 wines, 4 producers. Found this place by searching 2011 Marcarini Barbera. Enjoyed it at a restaurant recently and they're one of the few to have it stateside. Read More

  • Not frequenting! I don't want to be a jerk and knock them. Maybe they're doing the best they can. The manager/owner has to work on her social skills though. She's not particularly welcoming. Just a perfunctory "can I help you?" and no further engagement.She demonstrates no passion at all, which is kind of deadly. Maybe there's no market. So what... Read More

  • Jon - Ultimate Wine is in New Jersey. I know them pretty well. They always have a selection of free-shipping wines. They're about 20 minutes south of Wine Library. Lots of wine stores near them about fifteen, twenty minutes. But doing the tasting somewhere non-virtual is a splendid idea.I don't know, maybe I'll take a long drive one day soon. Wi... Read More

  • I forgot to give you the other San Diego store...this one actually looks to have a bigger selection. 4 Chinon's compared to 1, wow. Ultimate WineWith San Diego lacking in diversity, maybe we should just get together and taste in OC or LA?   Read More

  • I'm no expert on Loire reds, but I confess to liking them a lot and ... ... level for both Chinon and Bourgueil (and St. Nicholas de Bourg) is pretty dependent on the maker.  Prices for Bourgueil (wait for huge generalization) are just a tad lower because the region is even more obscure in the US.  I've had disappointing Chinons (Clos de L'Ech...
