  • Unless you're an utter Revolutionary War geek, or want to get down and dirty and maybe survive a visit with the utterly wrong crowd, I think I already did. Two visits to Camden running into the wrong sorts years back and I knew that sage and manzanita and shale hillsides behind and head-high or higher gnarly breaks in front--with a proper burrit...

  • Don't know how much you can get back up into the hills of inland San Diego county, Greg, but I grew up very frequently traipsing across the backcountry mountains of Ventura, Santa Barbara and LA Counties, occasionally even up into San Luis Obispo and Monterey counties, too. You come home with your clothes all smelling of sage and many, many othe... Read More

  • "Just like that, he's gone" So are all the guests and most of the wine. Over the top is a good descriptor. Just way too much wine to be able to fully appreciate each but I'm not complaining. What started out as a Halcón horizontal vertical turned into a 52 bottle private wine and food festival at Club Forestville. Guests arrived from far and wid... Read More

  • Highly interesting...don't make it down to San Diego very often though GregT may have just struck gold.I keep thinking there is untapped potential around the coastline of Orange County, but wonder why it hasn't been done.

  • Bernardo Winery Burgandy NV

    Snoothrank:

    Black Currents and midnight black fruit. Dark looking Burg. Great nose however actually tasting fizzles away all the great aromas. Ends up being flat and wanting some complexity. Read More

  • Bernardo Winery Chardonay 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Honeydew and melon, slight lemon notes on the nose and initial tasting. Notes of crisp sour apple. Medium Oak. Medium to slightly high acidity, not enjoyable in a Chard. Long finish with high astringent aspects as well as high minerality. Read More

  • Bernardo Winery Chablis 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very mellow aroma of white willow and a minerally earthy note. The actual wine was a bit flat and tended to grow flatter the more it was exposed to air. Within a few minutes its constitution was more water based then "a chablis" The naming of the wines from this winery is a bit of an enigma. The actual taste, if I could equate it to somethin...

  • Back at ya, Kim.Thank you for the excellent list.  The good news is that I live in a large metropolitan area.  So, it is possible that I might be able to find some of the labels that you have suggested. As it turns out, you caught me in a mistatement.  (I'm old.  I forget.)  I have had another South African wine, and it was a Pinotage from Neil ...
