  • 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

  • Nice location, VV!  On the side away from the road, too.  Lots of places that look over the water are also across the road, which I would imagine could be kind of noisy. Okay, back to the topic:  Just bought 4 bottles of 2014 Jemrose Egret Pond Viognier from LastBottle.  I've paid $25 a bottle for any wine of theirs I like if I buy a case, no sh...

  • Just not a good selection of imports in these parts and for good reason.'Cause your idea of "these parts" stops at Carneros, or maybe even farther north.  (I was going to lead with a snarky comment about your education in post Prop 13 schools, but I can't remember if you are older or younger than I am.)

  • Yeah, Sekt has shot itself in the foot pretty well on the rare occasions when ... they turn back to beer. Cal sparklers have improved a ton since the '80s, when most of what was available was just terrible.  Even the stuff made by the French, like the Chandon, really didn't work for me. But things are looking up, especially in the Anderson Val... Read More

  • Have started to see the appeal in Champagne and other quality sparkling wine more and more lately. It's a festive drink with high drinkability and pleasure, provided you are drinking within the wine's general drinking window. I can remember my eldery godmother saying on one of our visits that she couldn't drink wine anymore due to her stomach is... Read More

  • I started a thread on WB recently, and not many folks agreed with my stance, though I suspect many more do agree that just don't say anything.Strictly speaking about Northern Hemisphere Wines, leaving the various barrel aging out of it for sake of discussion. Read More

  • Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...
