  • Hi, my wife and I received a nice bottle of wine as a wedding present that we've now been cellaring for over 5 years (planning to enjoy on our anniversary in the future when its time, online people suggest to 'hold' still). We've never cellared wine before, but it's been fun to have this special bottle that we're waiting to enjoy together over m... Read More

  • Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event.  It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California.  Talk about getting out of the box.  For me this is tantamount to cross-dressing.  It started because Chester introduced me to the Kettle Valley "Hayman" reserve Pinot last year.  I really liked it, so when I found one (83 ca...

Only Cal and Ital, and the Cal wines include Mauritson Cab and Hendry Primitivo, so props for that.  But the crown jewels are some properly aged Italian wines, including Barolo from 1989, 2001, and 2004.  The 2001 is a Cicala from Aldo Conterno, and goes for $325.  Ouch!...

  • My name is Michael King--micking--and I've just joined.  I call myself a 'wine snot' because I know what I like and know something about wines but still have quite a bit to learn.  Unhappily, I had a stroke several years ago which stopped me from enjoying red wines.  So, I now have to stick with whites.  I'm rather fond of French wines but also ...
