  • I recently heard that in addition to its contribution to the flavor and complexity of wines, that oak was also an effective anti-oxidant, helping the wine to age gracefully for longer periods of time. Also, that sediment in older wines had to do with the oak.It prompted me to search for some additional articles or info on oak. Found this random ... Read More

  • Last week I noticed that I was drinking more, or at least as much as ever, and not really noticing a lot of nuances in what I was drinking.  (No, this isn't about an intervention.  Pretty sure I am handling my ETOH safely, although we had crept up to finish most bottles the first night.)  I decided my palate needed a rest.  So, for the last two ...

  • On a warm June day I was lost on the winding roads of Canon-Fronsac, an appellation on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. When I finally turn up more than an hour late at Château Moulin-Pey-Labrie, owner Grégoire Hubau makes a few witty digs about wine critics rarely finding their way to this little-known region. We head for his cellar, hung with amusing po... Read More

  • I like red wines like Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir.  I'm looking into storing up some to keep for special occassions like anniversaries, birthdays, etc.  I was told that Cabernet ages better than Merlot and Bordeaux wines also age well.  But I'm not sure what to look for in a wine that could help me distinguish that.  Any suggestions?

  • Okay, so this is not news, and it's been discussed on the forum before. In the spirit of GDP's new rants, I figured I'd throw mine out there as well. I've seen too many hangovers caused by misjudged pacing due to wild variations in alcohol content.Mostly this is difficult in restaurants. If we're shopping in stores we can check the label easily ... Read More

  • You could put this under "Wine and Travel," but here's the idea:  dmcker responded to something I said about Cline wines that got me thinking.  Some wines are good, but not necessarily worth seeking out.  They're completely enjoyable, reliable from vintage to vintage, affordable, and widely found.  These aren't always the experiences we are afte...

  • This comment might be considered a timely follow-up to the recent Snooth items on BYOB restaurants.Over the last thirty-something years my wife and I have enjoyed several cruise vacations.  We are now booked on a 14-day cruise to Hawaii that departs from and returns to Los Angeles.  It had never really occurred to me that I could bring my own wi...

  • Fourth Growth Bordeaux, Grand Cru Classe en 1855, from Saint-Julien: Chateau Beychevelle, 1974. Bought 1981. When the spirit descended on the group and they spoke in tongues. A powerful wine can help mere mortals approximate this experience without explicit divine intervention. In my case, the Epiphany involved spring, the last year of law schoo... Read More

  • Hi All,   I have a few thoughts/questions that I would appreciate comments on. I have been some-what seriously drinking wine for about eight years now. I am 61 years old and before the "wine enlightenment", drank mostly micro-brewery and other not so chic types of beer. Every year now for the past four, I have held a blind tasting of different r...
