  • 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.

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...

  • You speak the truth Fox.  Claremont and Pasadena are both near the EMark Adobe.  Cal Poly University has a student-run restaurant that would be a great place for us to get together.  The problem there is that they follow the academic calendar, and, so, there's a good chance they might be on spring break or exam break.  We'll see what we can do i...
