  • Several 2012 Pinot Noirs from Russian River, SLH, and SRH definitely have Pinot / Red Burgundy notes and texture; body. ***** It appears to come from the oenologist, wine maker and Vineyard.

  • 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...

  • Yes, Jon, I am envious.  I have the Quivet, but I have no Carters.Wow, Al, ... ... seen it in any of my local stores.  So, when I saw that  Al had just bought it at TW, I figured there was a good chance that my local TW would have it.  Coincidently, last weekend, the L.A. Times listed the '12 LS as an excellent match for burgers (along with a ... Read More

  • 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 ...

  • 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...
