  • 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...

  • MJET, purchase the racks online at Wine Racks America. I found through some searches either here, on WineBeserkers or CellarTracker. My contractor is very impressed with the service and knowledge of the rep he has been dealing with.Next big thing to work on is how to arrange everything.

  • If you can include French, you can get your distributor's rep to bring some Cotes du Rhone and some Bordeaux and somewhere in there, you can find something good for under $15, definitely under $20--maybe even a village-level Cotes du Rhone like a Cairanne or Seguret; you can also get some Languedocs and other things, but you need to taste them a...

  • A lot more 'hermitage' (syrah) from the Rhone was dumped into CS barrels in Bordeaux in past centuries than ever got bottled and shipped overseas from eastern France. The Brits built the French wine industry, since Bordeaux, Aquitaine and surrounding areas were long part of its King's demesne and thus English merchants' bailiwicks. Send those ba... Read More

  • Red, it's context:  Pinot is supposed to deliver a certain kind of flavor, aroma, mouthfeel, and, for me, none of that is there with Meiomi.  I wouldn't bash it if I didn't try it.  (I didn't really bash it so much, either, just said it wasn't much like PN to me and wasn't very enjoyable.)  Big commercial wines:  Well, define that.  A lot of goo...
