  • This is way off thread topic, but I just love to rebut GregT's comments. Also, I am going to take another opportuniity to brag on a favorite maker.In discussing the Bottled in St. Helena Meiomi, Greg stated, "That's in Napa. No way are they putting out a $20 wine that would come from any vineyards there."Last week in another thread Mjet posted p... Read More

  • Good distinction. If someone else pours, I may drink a lot of stuff I wouldn't buy myself. I'm not talking about price either, just the quality of what's in the glass.A lot of what comes out of Bordeaux is fine, but more isn't. Not the classified growths, but there are hundreds of producers who are putting things into bottles that should never b... Read More

  • "Yeah but would you drink those again? With all the salt water?"Sure, if they were anything like recent mid-range-or-up retsina. Not the bottom levels. But they'd probably be pretty concentrated, and could well require thinning by water. Alternatively they could be an even longer-aged, better-vintage version of those northern seas finds of recen...

  • OK, so I just posted a dozen images. Not necessarily of current bottles of wine but all relevant to the discussion:1) 1300BCE Greek trading vessel most likely carrying wine2) lots of wasted wine on the ocean floor3) trading routes for the Phoenicians and Greeks as they spread wine culture4) drinking cup showing Dionysus making it happen--Riedel,...

  • I'm English, Scots, Irish, but also German, French, and Italian, but I think marrying a Semitic woman from middle Europe was probably doing my kids a big favor.  Whether it's the Amish, orthodox Jews, or any other group that isolates itself, the problems of being inbred are far worse than the problems engendered by having a couple drinks every n...

  • I've hung out with the Surgeon General, and I've hung out with good bartenders.  I'd rather have another round poured by Chili Bill than hang out with the Surgeon General, but that's me.  In any case, this cup of tea nonsense smacks of a new puritanism.  If you're British and want to live  longer, get off the blighted isle and marry a non-Brit. ...

  • After many articles discussing customer dissatisfaction, Premier Cru, a very upscale wine store in Berkeley, filed for bankruptcy this week.  There have been concerns for J J Buckley's laggardly behavior in delivering wines on the WB and Wine Spectator forums, but so far they've made good on everything of mine save for three bottles of Hermitage...

  • Fox, and I felt bad talking about their weather! Jeeezzzzz! And that gene pool (other than for the royals) isn't all that small. They did originate that easy-to-use phrase 'shag' after all.  ;-)   Plenty of Brits traveling offshore, and plenty of former Commonwealth country folks now born and raised on that island. Perhaps only the US pool would... Read More

  • Growing up fishing from boats off the coast of Santa Barbara/Ventura/Oxnard/Port Hueneme used to catch lots of what we called red snapper, rock cod, barracuda, sharks and sometimes ling cod and sea bass. If we were going deeper, groupers and rockfish and scorpion fish. Off the pier was perch and seasonal fish like bonito and sometimes more bass.... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Lingcod and Cooking Fresh Fish


  • Going back to the Lingcod story I hinted at in the other thread, here's how that went...I just remember trying Lingcod years ago at some place like King's fish house, and then never seeing it again. I'd even read fish reports in the newspaper and hardly see any caught except sometimes a few in Oxnard, etc. Seems like they are mostly caught off o... Read More
