My contractor is very impressed with the service and knowledge of the rep he has been dealing with.Next big thing to work on is how to arrange everything. The vast majority of my current holdings are from Californi... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Had this with lunch at Mercat Bistro about a month ago. Completely lovely. Soft, with bits of peach, ripe grapefruit, and strawberry, along with almond and baking spices. Creamy and lush in the mouth. Read More

  • Weird thread to revive. Twice no less!Anyhow, I suppose the OP and the other poster won't be around again. Too bad. Tokaj is the region, Tokaji means roughly "from the region of Tokaj". Pronunciation is the same. Tokay is a British bastardization of the word and Tocai an Italian one, which they are no longer allowed to use under the EU rules, ju... Read More

  • I doubt that current Burgundy makers of any repute would risk shipping grapes in from outside the region to beef up their pinot.  They would get caught too easily and besides, no one drinks the best wines, they just collect them. If they do drink them, buyers have some excuse for why they might fall short.  In any case, vignerons can add sugar o... Read More

  • Calling back to your indirect shot at Pinot Noir Mark, I think it's great that you've tried and tried different CA examples, but you really need to try a few good red burgundies before joining Greg and his opinion. In fact, I think his opinion on Pinot Noir is overplayed for effect, and better understood if you get the full picture, which I'll a... Read More

  • DM - I'm not sure about Nebbiolo in Walla Walla.  The region seems to be too hot for Nebbiolo in comparison to Northern Italy. Some of the better Washington Nebbiolo I have had comes from Red Mountain vineyards.  Which is interesting, because when you look up "Hot Washington AVA" in the dictionary you find a picture of Red Mountain!  The quality...

  • "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...

  • Sandra and I were fortunate yesterday to attend a quickly sold out (57 minutes after the e-mail went out to the RdV Ambassador members, it was fully booked) 'Introduction to Blind Tasting' class at our favorite Northern Virginia winery, RdV.  Getting our two slots in this class was tough, as we didn't call them until 5 or 6 hours after their e-m...
