  • Regardless of the Barolo's style, you'll get more of its potential out of of a 15-year-old Bordeaux or CA cab than you will out of any serious four or five year old Nebbiolo from the Piedmont. Plus if you insist on drinking 3 to 4 year old wines, how will your palate have a chance to evolve? Decanting is not the be all and end all and certainly ... Read More

  • Okay, should be finishing up some things here, but just got an email from Mark Matthews, so I'm inspired to follow up here. At the end of the panel, which was moderated by an acquisitions editor from UC Press and consisted of Matthews and Sheridan Warrick, who just released the second edition of his book on home winemaking, the moderator asked h...

  • EM - You seem to have quite an assortment of Bedrock wines in your cellar.I do, Al.  Of all the various winery mailings to which I subscribe, I suspect that I buy more bottles of Bedrock every year than anything else.  I suspect there are two reasons for this:  (1) they are generally priced around my "sweet spot"--roughly $40/bottle--and (2) I l...

  • RCKR - the problem is that there's no particular body of knowledge one must have to start writing about wine, or anything else really. People can't give formal legal advice without having a J.D., or medical advice without an M.D., or any number of other things, but that doesn't stop people from opining and offering advice.With wine, people read ...

  • Agreed. And if you spent a lot of time in Montalcino or one of the other places you mention, or any region really, I'm sure you'd eventually be able to discern those differences. There are precious few people who can do that however, and of course the vintage and the wine making are going to have serious impacts.I've been saying for a long time ... Read More

  • Very nice VV.  Wine certainly does taste better on holiday.Since Friday is sometimes considered part of the weekend, I'll go ahead and reveal what we did yesterday, the 3rd of June.  We started off driving over to the Mosiac District again to pick up my glasses, and we figured that a wine tasting and then dinner were in order.  We stopped by Sip...

  • Fox - absolutely I couldn't tell you one Bordeaux from another blind or one Barolo from another, although in the latter case I'd take a shot if you told me what my choices were. It's all about where you've focused your attention and how many times you've rung the same bell in your head. That is actually why I like blind tasting - it makes you fo... Read More

  • Paul, thanks for the link.  You can activate it using the bar right above the text--it's the icon that looks like a globe with a chain in front of it.  (WorldWideWeb + Link).I've read the article now.  What I'm getting is that you can measure a "terroir" effect if you hold everything absolutely constant and use the most discriminating lab tools ...

  • Mike did that with his own wines, which he tastes every day.  I imagine he could do it with some others as well.  And I can imagine that GregT can do that with Riojas because he tastes a lot of them, does so frequently, and pays a lot of attention to them.  But there's a real limit to human perception. Note that GregT cannot do the same with tho... Read More

  • D - he didn't really overstep IMHO. But his book has really limited appeal - it's written specifically as a counterargument to a particular type of writing. Interesting approach to take.One of his overarching points was that people talk about and repeat things as if they're facts but at the same time they ignore what they can see happening in th...
