  • I suppose this is another example of how and where not to store wine. Hesitated to post this because wounds are so fresh, with so many people losing so much in the fires. But here it is.Can't expect to be automatically safe in areas that historically, over the centuries and millenia, are subject to periodic forest fires, whatever their immediate... Read More

  • Bedrock Hudson Vineyard South T'N'S-blocks Syrah 2012

    Snoothrank:

    OK wine, but not my favorite Bedrock. Kind of a "unsweeted prune" entry. Then some pretty serious tannin. If you like a "rustic" wine, this might do it for you. Lots of dustiness. Read More

  • Sandra made some room in her wooden wine racks by filling up my iron wine racks - these are the ones I can select from without prior negotiation.  Our allocations are coming in now.  Just picked up six Duckhorn wines and a dozen Medlock Ames wines.  We received a notice that St. Francis has shipped our wines, even during this fire disaster that'...

  • Rockr - There are a lot of those sugar shack wineries in Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, etc. The people trying to make serious wine get really frustrated because they get lumped into the same category and some of them just haven't been able to make it, partly because they were never taken seriously.But Ohio does in fact grow Merlot, Cab, and many othe...

    Forum post in the topic Taking Wine Home from Vacation


  • Hello! I am heading to Napa/Sonoma soon and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for transporting wine home.  I'd rather not check in my luggage but it doesn't appear that there are easy options to ship all your wine (except from each winery separately). Any suggestions?  Also, once I'm back from the trip, are there any good online ma... Read More

  • Quivet Cellars las Madres Vineyard Hulda Block Syrah 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark purple color. Sulphur funk takes a few minutes to dissipate. Spritz on the tip of the tongue. Lots of red fruit--strawberry, plum. Some black pepper and some earthiness mid-palate. Stiff tannin balanced, though, by acid. Pleasant finish. Read More

  • Acacia Pinot Noir Carneros 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Ugly chemical noseprobably sulphur. Light cherry flavor on the tip of the tongue. Then, not much of anything else. Pretty much, a pedestrian wine. On the other hand, once you get past the nose, it really doesnt suck. Read More

  • Friday night with our good wine drinkin' buddies.  Hot and humid here in NC so we started with some well chilled bubbles - LP is one of our go to Champers, excellent QPR.  Bing and Debbie brought the Ramey Chard purchased during our tasting there on our March trip to Sonoma/Napa.  Big, layered and rich, a good bit of well integrated oak along wi...

  • Looking merely at wine, was wondering how the current hodge-podge of Trump policy initiatives may affect the beverage we like so much. A couple of early guesses:USDA budget cuts will mean California's Wine Institute budget will likely be cut by 1/3 (Wine Industry Insight's figure). Will quite possibly see fewer facts about harvests, and other us... Read More
