  • Somehow looks like a combo between Southern Rhone and Bordeaux and Northern Italian. Also, then, should ask where's the petit verdot and the cab franc, or the mourvedre and syrah?  Perhaps they could acknowledge their more recent California del Norte wine culture heritage and throw in some Zin as well. One wonders why they avoided Spanish (other... Read More

  • I panicked!No, we just felt like some red. I misjudged the style a bit. Okay, so we had something pretty interesting last night.  I think there's a story behind it.  It was a Marsanne/Roussane/Viognier blend from Alder Springs.  Not just the very large vineyard owned by the guy who invented the California Cooler. He grows all kinds of grapes up ... Read More

  • OT, I'm not saying you should come around.  Where you live, there are way more opportunities to buy excellent under-the-radar wines at fair prices.  While California may lack in great $15 bottles (and not always), I think the good Syrahs you have introduced many of us to make purchasing their N. Rhone competitors mostly superfluous.  When you ge... Read More

  • MY FIRST VISIT TO BERN'S STEAKHOUSE - Tampa (4/8/2017)Like any true wine geek when I was informed of a trade show in Tampa my first thought was "I'm making reservations at Bern's." I have friends who live in Tampa about 3 min from the restaurant so we hooked up for a fun three top. Rachel came recommended as a Somm so I requested her in advance.... Read More

  • BL - Our Viking River Cruise down the Rhone last year was a blast, and we tried many wines of Southern France along the way.  I think my favorite was the Burgundy Pinot Noir wines, as they are close to the Oregon Pinot Noir wines we also enjoy. We never visited El Toreo on Fair Oaks Ave in Pasadena, but we were both living in Southern California...

  • Back when I first started expanding my horizons out of California, I had some really good L-R wines.  A lot were nice variations on the S. Rhone theme, big and ripe and fun.  But there's a lot of variability, and I drifted away from them, starting to favor wines with a little more restraint and higher acids.  The slightly random character of the...
