|Region:||Italy » Piemonte » Barbaresco » Alba » Barbera d'Alba|
This bottle was almost like a Zinfandel in its spicy and woodsy notes but with the kick of a Barbera that kept your mouth watering. What more could I ask for in a pairing with Risotto. The nose was a candy shop of dark fruit turning to blueberries and ...

A totally unexpected showing of this bottle. I had expected a modern, oak influenced candy shop of a Barolo but what I got was a balanced and finessed example of an 11 year old Barolo just coming to age. Color was a brilliant dark red. The nose was ...

Riesling could be eclipsing Chardonnay as a go-to white wine grape for wine drinkers. My definition of wine drinkers here includes folks who don’t drink wine on a regular basis, but know a few grapes by name when ordering at a restaurant or picking up a bottle for a special occasion. This says a whole lot about Riesling. Many perfectly fine indi... Read More

It's called Songbird Lyrical Red. It has been my experience that ANYTHING produced in Walla Walla, Washington is to die for. This o... Read More
Sandra and I needed to head down south to Charlottesville, Virginia this week to attend a Louis Black comic performance at the Paramont Theater. Louis wasn't playing closer to us in Washington DC like he usually does, so we figured why not go down there and make it a Bed & Breakfast trip with some wine tasting tossed in. And thus it was to be.... Read More
So Sandra and I just arrived home from a two night stay in Charlottesville, ... some old work friends at the Bottle Shop wine bar. Before long both couples selected a bottle of wine to complement our initial glass and our conversation quickly centered on what's going wrong with the current administration. Good times!I must say, the 2013 Ridg... Read More

Does anyone have any recommendations for a 1987 red wine that is drinkable todayMy oldest son is 30 this year and it appears that 1987 was not a great vintage anywhere Read More
Yet, wine is, on one level, a consumer product like any other. No matter what the cost of production is, and regardless of the good intentions of the winery, the love of winemaking--the heart behind it all--the wine has to sink or swim in a consumer market. A critical mass of buyers have to become aware of the wine and, having tried it, think it... Read More
A new year provides the perfect opportunity to try new things, but how far will you go? Many wine drinkers cling to familiar grape varieties or settle for what’s in easy reach.
