  • Micking, welcome.  What Emark said is correct in summing up everyone here. As to the wine you cannot find that was a fave of yours in Singapore, there are quite a few possibilities.  Some wines are snapped up in certain markets and never make it elsewhere.  Some wines are actually made for those markets under particular labels or for a distribut...

  • Sandrone is modernist, so it's interesting to see what's happening to those.  The modernists probably made the wines more drinkable young by taming the tannins with oak, but at a cost of burying some of what makes Nebbiolo unique. (Here I am sounding like some cocksure expert--I'm not, but this is certainly how many, including Oz Clarke, saw it,... Read More

  • 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 ...

  • The Old World is more willing to jump on the low calorie bandwagon, while New World drinkers in the United States are balking at the emergence of low-cal quaffers, according to an article which appeared in The Wall Street Journal this past Friday.  “Americans love wine – and they are concerned about their weight,” reporter Rachel Pannett wrote. ...

  • Had the pleasure to taste with GregT in San Diego yesterday evening. I had the idea to pair up Greg and a friend from the Netherlands who was in San Diego for a convention, due to their interest in Tokaj, and it seemed to work well, everyone having a good time.Lessons Learned: Harslevelu is good stuff, and probably my new favorite white wine gra...

  • WB has a thread on this, why not us?Cracked my first one over the weekend, a Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola. While Pelissero has a couple more highly esteemed Barbaresco (Tulin, of which I have a few, and Venotu, of which I hope to get some), I enjoyed this wine, and picked the right time to open it as it was accessible enough for the casu...

  • I once, a few years back, almost pulled the trigger on a real estate purchase in the hills back behind the Big Sur coastline. Was reminiscing on that today, and wondered why I never hear about wine from that area. Is it because I'm so far away and out of touch and there actually are barrels and barrels of wine being made there, or because the cu... Read More

  • dm, I know, but I don't think I've seen a seemingly dead wine come to ... up while we were eating local shrimp, looked like they were just pulled from the ground and had the green tops still.  That's what I meant by real.  They were probably from Cal too! &nbs Read More

  • Excellent evening, Al.  It sounds like you went to a dress rehearsal.  Very cool.  I have to say, though, "Dialogues of the Carmelites" is not, exactly an "upper," but you now know that.  The thing with the early "thunk" is hilarious.  In a performance of "Carmen" that I saw, Don Jose and Escamillo square off to fight in Act III, they both whip ...
