  • Sounds like the bottle was exposed, for however long, to temperatures higher than the 70s.I used to have similar problems with magnums I'd buy in Napa or Sonoma and carry on (back when you could do that) at SFO back to Tokyo. Only seepage was from magnums, interestingly enough, but the variation in pressure (happened during the autumn through sp... Read More

  • They've had a hell of a time with it in Burgundy, like a 50-90% lost vintage. Unsure on quality, but it's dubious.What's going on in Napa/Sonoma? I hear Halcon Alturas is a ways away from ripening, but the harvest of whites has been in full effect. When should the Cabernet, and other reds be "ready"?Let's pick now (or soon) I say!Floods and fros... Read More

    Wine review by eaglebass


  • So basically anything outside Toscana and Piemonte is fair game?Alto Piemonte is still Piemonte and still nebbiolo--even if it's called Spanna or something else. Gattinara/Ghemme/Carema/Lesona (all except the last I've posted on here) are just higher-altitude versions of the wine being made in Barolo and Barbaresco, and in several cases aren't e... Read More

  • Aspara Syrah Carneros las Madres Vineyard 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Some raspberry in the nose, but, then, more earthiness. Slightest hit of raspberry, but, mostly, earthiness, meatiness, maybe, mushroom on entry. A very interesting wine in that none of those flavors dominate. As soon as I detect one, it moves on and the next one steps in. Very modest in both tannin and acid. An outstanding wine. Read More

  • William apparently likes seagulls. One of our best off-topic tangents then started. I was able to post a number of photos of the flying rats giving and getting hell, and was happy to include one of an octopus snaring and munching on a seagull who thought he was protected from more than just people, being inspired by DV's post of another such occ...

  • Last night we drank a Lafond Syrah SRH from (duh!) the Santa Rita HIlls.  A colleague brought it  back from Santa Barbara, where the winery has a tasting room; she does that for me whenever she's down there because she's a great colleague and knows I like the wine.  She also got two bottles of Oregon PN in appreciation. This is a seriously good ...

  • Lassen was pretty covered in snow and clouds kept hitting the tops of it, so I presume it got more.  Temps in the morning at 4500 feet were 40-ish, days got warmer, but as you went up the difference was noticeable.  There wasn't much more than patchy stuff in the passes at 5000+, but that was near the roads and with presumably less shade cover t...
