As wine lovers who among us doesn't enjoy doing horizontal tastings of wines from a single vineyard? That would probably be none of us yet the opportunity to do this doesn't surface very often. I remember doing a Limerick Lane Zinfandel horizontal last year with 6 takes on the same fruit. Other than that I'm at a loss. It's a great opportunity t... Read More
Trying to recall a conversation we had a little while ago on this subject.Whats the most widely planted (acreage) and produced (bottles) red grape in CA, U.S., and worldwide?I seem to recall a Snooth article mentioning Grenache as the most widely planted red grape worldwide, but that was some years ago. I'm assuming it's Chardonnay for white? Read More
I mentioned this a while ago, but didn't get around to the post. We stayed from September to end of December at a condominium in a complex built in the '70s. They've renovated and rebuilt since then (there were several major lawsuits for construction defects--built on fill!), but the architecture and the vibe is still very of that period. Our u...

Hello wine lovers. Im a newby. I find that I love a Mendoza Malbec like its oxygen and Nineteen Crimes cab is to die for ( althouth not in the way some of the criminals may have in route to australia) . I also am enjoying some less complex but well balanced red blends like Apothic. My favorite malbec so far is Alamos and Cigar Box is pretty nic... Read More

Owner, enologist Massimo Piccin was present and told us, “We are wine. We are men and women winemakers who transform grapes into wine by means of our know-how, our... Read More
It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015. I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits. And the taste?" regarding the... Read More
This is a report I adapted from my recap on WB. Unfortunately a few guests fell ill in the days prior and had to bow out. Missed you Richard! All in all it was a fun evening with some interesting wines. Plenty of left overs to start the next incarnation. Weather was rain in the AM and we feared having to host indoors but the skies cleared around... Read More
We feel that if a geographic area has shown wine excellence throughout a long history, then even more sublime heights can be reached with the addition of a dose of passion and attention. Campania was the breadbasket of Ancient Rome. Fruits, nuts, grains, seafood, meats, olive oil – authors from Virgil to Pliny to Columella agreed that if those i... Read More
Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event. It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California. Talk about getting out of the box. For me this is tantamount to cross-dressing. It started because Chester introduced me to the Kettle Valley "Hayman" reserve Pinot last year. I really liked it, so when I found one (83 ca... Read More
