  • So...going back to the good and bad wine.I've heard it said it's very difficult to separate the end wine with the ground the grapes (vines) came from. But this is assuming that care was given to the process...Of course, the above can be circumvented by how many large "commercial" producers operate, from spraying chemicals in the fields, cropping...

  • EM - You are so right about adding bread to the plate.  I love a sourdough with olive oil, which in fact we had tonight at Jaleos in Crystal City.  This is a tapas restaurant where we have dined many times.MJ - The St. Francis Zins are some of our favorites.  We have drunk that one along with several other Zinfandels from other vineyards.  They ...

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

  • 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...

  • 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

A recent vote has temporarily squelched their desire. The Associated Press reports that the L.A.

  • I'm a long-time lurker (and appreciator) of this forum, but this is my first post.  Thanks, in advance, for your help, and for all of the other good advice I've found here in the past.LAST WEEKI got a fantastic deal on a 1995 bottle from what I believed (and still believe, I hope) to be a reputable online seller.  Here are the photos that accomp...

  • I once, a few years back, almost pulled the trigger on a real estate purchase in the hills back behind the Big Sur coastline. Was reminiscing on that today, and wondered why I never hear about wine from that area.
