  • D, not everything winds up on the internet, at least not via the usual mechanisms.  Being local can help.  Shiners, closeout specialists in the neighborhood, calls from friends, there's stuff that comes in small quantities with "secret" backstory even now.Okay, here are a couple that you won't find east of Reno (I think I used that before, and w...

  • Vinum Cellars the Scrapper Cabernet Franc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Darkly rich red currant and raspberry fruit aromas with good baking spice and black pepper and a slight note of varietally correct green herb. Nicely rich and full in the mouth, this is fruity and full bodied, showing a lot of spicy acidity, good earthiness from the chew of the tannins, and bright raspberry and black cherry fruit.

  • DV, my father cut himself pretty well with a utility knife when I was a kid.  My mother hated them as a result, and shudders whenever my father or I pick one up.  I have about three different models, designed for ease of blade change, or retractability, and one just old fashioned.  I have cut myself many times with every one of them, but never e...

  • I'm at least one person who said the merlot is best used to soften up Sangio.  It's approved for Chianti as a blender as long as it doesn't exceed 10 or 15 percent.  I can't be bothered to look up the exact number.  It's better than the bad local grapes that used to be required, although I would generally prefer that those wines be called IGT ra...

    Snoothrank:

    From the back label78% Syrah/22% Cabernet Sauvignon. Subdued nose. Some barnyard hints, some prune. On the tongue, again it takes a second to detect the sensations. Again, the fruit that emerges is prunewithout the sweetness. Mushroom earthiness. Some leatherthat might be the Cabernet Sauvignon talking. Serious tannin and serious acid sug... Read More

  •  there’s a reason why nobody ever tried to pull out these old vines. The fruit they produce is just too good.That is certainly true, but credit also has to be given to the fact that White Zinfandel became the rage thirty-something years ago, thus, saving thousands of acres of Zinfandel from being replanted to Merlot or Chardonnay.  Thank you, Su...

  • "When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed.  Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women.  This morning, with...

  • Okay, getting back to the topic at hand, in effect the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA is the other side of those mountains.  Arroyo Seco is basically due east of Big Sur.  And there's San Antonio Valley a little further south.  (Pierce Family, whom I have touted on the "Completely Different" thread, are down there.)  Here's a nice map: http://wine.ap...
