Well, this is a first! Having a wine blog I routinely place photos of the wines I try on the blog, and then maybe 3-4 times a year I post the reviews to Snooth, just to share with other fans (I guess I have enough to do to actually write the reviews a...

Time to turn the amp up to 11, at least for the wine hype machine, thanks to James Suckling on the 2015 vintage of Chateau Margaux:"The greatest Margaux ever made. More than perfection. Full body, firm and ultra-silky tannins. Black currant, mineral and floral character. It starts slowly and seems almost endless on the palate. Seamless. I want t... Read More
This book looks enticing but was looking for feedback from anyone who may have read it. Thanks Read More
Mjet - these days it's hard to think of a CA or WA Cab that will improve but that isn't very good out of the chute. That would include the entire Cab family - wines made as monovarietal bottlings or as blends of Merlot, Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, Malbec, Carmenere, etc. If you have a wine that's going to improve, it's likely to be pretty good on relea...

Which Cab Sav's are REALLY good right of the bat (upon release from the winery) and even better after 5 years? Read More
Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

Hi everybody, haven´t posted for a while... too busy drinking wine.Anyway, I have a trip to the Loire Valley coming up in July. We will stay 4 nights in Saumure and 2 nights in Sancerre. Anybody has ideas of which winemakers to visit? I like Pinots, Sauvignon Blanc, some Cabernet Franc and wouldn´t mind visiting a good Cremant maker. Anybody bee... Read More
I assume you know, Al, that Stags' Leap Winery is not the same as Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. The latter created the reputation for the name and area, while the former has mostly ridden on its coat tails due to the extremely similar names. SL Wine Cellars couldn't ask them to give up the name because the initial SL Winery farm with some grapes on ... Read More
Had a fun tasting matchup, another in the series of helping a young couple pick out their wedding wines. Schramsberg was my first thought, but I think they may have balked at the price (our local has a great deal @ $27), so we went ahead and set up a tasting along with a Roederer Estate, which sells closer to the $20 level.Started out with the R...

OK, let's make it interesting and either more fantastic or real, considering possible venues and circumstances. I'll posit the circumstances, and ask for candidate recommendations for a couple dozen examples. Will give one example of a solution to start with, then leave the remaining two-dozen wine and food solutions as questions.Brown bagging w... Read More
