  • To welcome fall, and without a doubt the season has arrived, like clockwork, the moment our Labor Day weekend had wrapped up, I have always had a bit of a tradition of opening some Barbaresco. While my heart may belong to Barolo, the somewhat more elegant and more approachable wines of Barbaresco are perfect for times when you are looking for so... Read More

  • Well, Jon and Darren have inspired me to go into the cellar and pull one with age on it.  Picking this one willl reduce the average age of my inventory pretty significantly.I find several things fascinating about this label.  First of all I had misidentified this wine in my inventory for about 20 years.  I had listed it as "Lytton Springs," not ...

  • So I just started a wine tasting class a couple of weeks ago in college as an elective course. I am learning a lot about wine, and recently aeration, so we have been using decanters to let Cabernet Sauvignon breathe, which does get better after some minutes in the decanter. I felt like it also improved a lot an Argentine Malbec young wine.But ea... 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
