  • Sandrone is modernist, so it's interesting to see what's happening to those.  The modernists probably made the wines more drinkable young by taming the tannins with oak, but at a cost of burying some of what makes Nebbiolo unique. (Here I am sounding like some cocksure expert--I'm not, but this is certainly how many, including Oz Clarke, saw it,... Read More

  • Silver Oak Alexander Valley California 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is an inky black color at the center, leading to some bright ruby along the edges with nice clarity. The nose is just lovely, with notes of black licorice, tarragon, blueberry and some Asian spice. The taste is quite refined, with a some subdued flavors of cassis, blueberry and notes of espresso up front which transition to some elega... Read More

  • DVOGLER- as I mentioned in an earlier post, I was introduced to quality reds, mostly Bordeaux, by a friend who had accumulated an impressive collection and was most generous in sharing and teaching me much about the pleasures of wine.  To illustrate, he opened a 1927 Corton Burgundy with the preface that it will be a sheer delight for up to 15-2...

  • OH YEA- The Barnett Rattlesnake Hill is an absolutely sensuous experience. Two years ago my boss gave me 6 bottles since he and his wife preferred Pinot style wines. Lucky me.Had a 94 Dominus last Sat that my sisters boss gave her. I thought it may be over the hill but it was elegant and had a delicate long finish. He has over a million.$ worth ... Read More

  • I am a life long wine enthusiast with a preference for Bordeaux, particularly if consumed at maturity. I do enjoy wines from other parts of the world but find I like the ones that have a claret style best. I dislike CA/domestic  fruit bombs that seem so prevalent and popular in the U S.My bias toward Bordeaux was probably set when a friend of mi... Read More

  • WB has a thread on this, why not us?Cracked my first one over the weekend, a Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola. While Pelissero has a couple more highly esteemed Barbaresco (Tulin, of which I have a few, and Venotu, of which I hope to get some), I enjoyed this wine, and picked the right time to open it as it was accessible enough for the casu...

    Snoothrank:

    Delicious! I've been trying, with little success, to find a wine or wines, that I enjoy and it's been difficult. I personally can't handle the dry burning sensation that so many of them leave when going down. This was perfect. I'll be totally honest and say I had 6 glasses. Not sure if it was the low alcohol content or what but I felt absolutely... Read More

  • This past week The Wall Street Journal's legendary wine columnist Will Lyons offered his list of Paris' five best wine bars in an article that will make any oenophile long for the lusty, lazy streets of the Parisian metropolis. “Paris has always had a good wine scene, as Proust and Hemingway can attest, but in the past decade it has really boome...

  • It may seem foolish but if I don’t have a glass of wine, or two, with my dinner then I can never enjoy whatever it is I’m eating. It can be the most amazing, top class gourmet meal but without a glass of wine it may as well be cardboard. And if I happen to be eating cardboard, so long as I have a glass of wine, I may just enjoy whatever it is th... Read More
