  • I haven't tasted a Zinfandel in many years and would like to get reacquainted.  Any recommendations for a fruit-forward one around $25? Read More

  • Time to do a little cellar cleaning and what better way to start than with the odds and ends of Italian wines that have been building up in the basement. Sadly theres no real cohesive theme here, though a few varieties do appear more than once among the tasting notes that follow. There’s not even a pricing paradigm that’s  useful here, though mo...

  • Thanks Greg.  I have some of the '07 flights listed above from another score sheet. Then...The first Arnot Roberts was a '10 Clary Ranch. When I looked back at it Monday it was speny charcoal on the nose and the palate was flat. Still showed acid and tannin. The other was the '09 North Coast. It was still showing black olive and smoky black frui... Read More

  • "I still prefer soft tannins however, and those tend to improve with age, right?"Actually, not. As Greg also alluded to above, big, fruit-forward (even blowsy) over-ripe wines, often picked later in the year and with correspondingly higher alcohol, tend not to age as well. 1997 was a famous vintage that everyone wanted to love in California (lik...

  • OK, quiz time. Thought I'd start a challenge where we can throw quotes out at the group, which has to then guess attribution. Who said it, and if possible when, why, etc.?Hints are allowed, even preferred. Person who gets the attribution right then gets to offer up their query.This would've been a lot more fun 20 yrs ago before the web. So yeah,... Read More

  • Thought this was an interesting mailer I'd share with you all. Already forwarded the e-mail to Fox as he is one of the few champions of Dolcetto that I know. This would also fit in well with the "weekday wines" thread. Fox and I agreeing it's a good week day pasta night wine, or even a 1st wine in a flight of Northern Italian Reds. To all Best W...

    Forum post in the topic Are you down with Dolcetto?


  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • Our little wine dinner was a great success.  We started with the Brut and everyone loved that.  Then we moved on to one of the two bottles they brought over (I wasn't expecting them to bring wine but I wasn't too surprised) - we opened a 2012 Veritas Saddleback Chardonnay from Virginia.  I was impressed with this Chardonnay, which was fermented ...

  • It is possible to order online and that's pretty much the only way I buy any wine for myself these days. But the bearded guy in the lumberjack shirt may know what he's talking about too.Or he might be a hipster. I'd be careful if that were the case. Check the pants. If he's a skinny guy wearing skinny black jeans and if he has black framed glass... Read More
