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...

|Winery:||Sine Qua Non|

Hits some high, floral notes off the nose. Dominating palate, with a lush, silky mouthfeel, explosive red and dark fruits, but then finishing seemlessly, with precision and maybe even a bit of magic this wine has big and flavorful fruit combined with e...

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

I'll be in Germany next week, and once I arrive I plan to drag my jet-lagged self to Alsace, France to tour a few wineries there (a couple hours from Frankfurt). BUT- I'm not really into white wines as much as reds, though I don't mind Gewurtzraminer and Dry Riesling.But I am thinking of taking a day off toward the end of the week. I can get pre... Read More
Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More
DM, I'm glad you asked, here's what I have so far:Staying in Santa Ynez Sat-W, probably going to miss the Farmer's Market, which is a shame since both the CFO and I really enjoy them.On Sunday we'll be stomping around the Lompoc wine ghetto. Planning to taste at Palmina, Samsara Wines, Arcadian Winery and Bratcher Winery and Piedrasassi Wine & B... Read More
I've moved my post from another thread discussing problems with a Virginian cabernet franc. Thought it would be better to have a dedicated discussion here, rather than burying the discussion in that ongoing thread that covers quite different subjects.Here it is... To get a better feel for the grape and what it can and should do, you guys should... Read More
Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee. So on short notice I decided to let them all know I was coming to town, and luckily I got a good tip on an excellent restaurant near my hotel, Nico Osteria. Have ... Read More
Secret Santa 2015 was a success! We eventually figured out who the senders and recipients were based on past drinking habits and assorted sleuthing. Some bottles were consumed quickly but others are in storage awaiting the right moment to enjoy them. Thanks to everyone for participating. Final pairings are listed below:JONDERRY - received bo...

After some more discussion with the CFO, we're thinking about splitting our week in two - a couple days in SB and a few up in the Santa Ynez/Solvang area. I've got a list of over 2 dozen tasting rooms specifically in SB so I think we're set there other than hearing about anyone's fav's (Mark, I've highlighted the ones you've mentioned).For SY/So...
