  • 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

  • Buena Vista Carneros Pinot Noir 2012

    Snoothrank:

    In the glass the wine is translucent and with a brownish tinge to it. On the tongue Im getting some cherry cough syrup that has been the rage with California PNs, these days. On the other hand, Ive had worsemuch worse. In all honesty, the sensation fades fairly quickly. Sturdier tannin that I see in most CA PNs. To me that makes it taste mo... Read More

  • Stephen, your original post at top of this thread brings up a number of interesting subjects and groupings.Your 1947 (oops, wrong century--see you're talking 100 years earlier) d'Yquem reminds me that I've always wanted to do a 1945/47 grouping of horizontals both for Bordeaux and Burgundy. Hopefully haven't missed the boat completely for all Bu... Read More
