Last Saturday we hosted another wine dinner with our neighbors (Rick & Debbie, the ones that introduced us to Duckhorn wines and things of this nature). We grilled Mahi Mahi for the ladies and New York steaks for the gentlemen. I had a nice fire going and one of those nature videos (4K resolution) was playing on our 75" LCD TV for some ambienc...

Good on you for giving the box a shot. There are actually a few good winemakers trying it out. But we need tasting notes!GregT would probably argue that PN should have lots of Syrah, right up until there's no room left for the PN. I had a wine from Chamisal/Domaine Aflred years ago called Da Red that was a blend of the two. It was fine for t... Read More
Fairly big, fruity Paso (Templeton) pinot. There's a touch of smoke on the nose. On the palate there's dried strawberry, dark chocolate covered cherry, some decent acidity, fine grained tannins and a medium finish. This is a warmer climate wine, not your Burgundian or Oregon pinot. There's more of the darker berry fruit and a bigger body, but i... Read More
I think even you, Fox, are thinking too much within CA. There are more-than-well-drinkable cab blends for less than $25, just not that many from CA or even WA.Go here for five pages of cab blends between $10 and $25 from as good an online vendor as you are likely to find (I prefer them *greatly* to Total): K&L Wines. I'll cull through a few of t... Read More
Yesterday I was recovering from Monday night. You see, Sandra & I attended a wonderful wine tasting event. For $40 per couple, we joined Nice Legs, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in Crystal City, and the Crystal City Wine Shop for a tasting of more than 45 different wines poured by winemakers, winery representatives and importers. Here are those fol... Read More
Hey everyone, if you're in town April 13th and you've got a hanker to try some excellent Napa Cabernet, vertical style, join me and GM Stephanie DeMasi for a vertical tasting from this family owned, boutique estate. Located in the Spring Mountain District, Juslyn currently only makes two red wines, both limited-production, Cabernet-dominated ... Read More
This is a wonderful wine that had nice maple syrup overtones. It was quite a wonderful experience, but I am sad to say that the winery is no more. Shadow Canyon is no more, so if you are able to get your hands on one of these bottles, take care of it. Read More
Well if I was on either the right or left coasts in the US during the coming month, I know where I'd be at least part of the time. NapaGirl, note the interesting new (for me, anyway) cab franc ACME's introducing. Finally, who knows how the formatting on this is going to appear....

I'm just about to get on a plane from Aspen, back to New York, and then to London. My favorite moments from here:> Meeting Snooth users, including Gantt> Meeting Gail Simmons from TopChef/Food and Wine and not knowing who she was, hearing her say she loves Snooth and then calling her back for a do-over/re-intro>Taking the gondola to the top of t...

Hospice du Rhone, the brainchild of John Alban, has become Spring's epicenter for all things Rhone. This global celebration is a warm embrace of all 22 grape varieties that trace their heritage to the lands that surround France’s 505 mile watering hole, 18 years strong, with this year, embarrassingly, being my first. Well, it took me ten years... Read More
