  • For someone who drinks a lot of expensive wine I can have decidedly plebeian tastes at times, and that’s the way things should be. We should not derive our satisfaction from wine from the price tag nor the point score for that matter. Both are just numbers, though the point scores do help to illustrate how much I like a wine in an easy to unders... Read More

  • My fave weekday wines are Estancia Monterey Chardonnay.  It's unique among Chards.  Not only is it tasty, but it has the body of a classic Calif. Chard balanced by a wonderful minerality and good apple/tropical fruit.  Not to mention at $10 it's a steal.Favorite red is Cantina Zaccagnini Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, $12.  Well-balanced, lovely dark ...

  • The wines of Cariñena may be unknown to you, as they were to me until my recent trip to the region which i reported on here:  Now that I am more familiar with these intriguing wines I've spent some time sharing them with my wine writing friends to get their impressions of the wines, and to see how they might position the wines in the US market. ...

  • Value among wines is of course relative, though there are a few factors that help keep prices down and values compelling. For example, the use of oak barrels adds to the cost of a bottle of wine and if you are able to move wines out of the winery quickly, and crop your vines so that they provide a robust yield, while not impacting quality of cou...

  • So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage. It simply is not with more than a handful of wines showing under-rip... Read More

  • As you may have heard the barolo region was hit by a massive hail storm late yesterday afternoon.I've heard that there is serious damage in Monforte, Ginestra and Gavarini in particular though  follow-up report by SNOOTHER 1519584, has shown these early reports to be less than accurate. though  modest damage west of Barolo and skirting up toward...

  • Red blends. We know what that means, right? It’s a code word for sweet ... ... These are two stalwarts. Classic wines that continue to deliver real bang for the buck in a style that roughly emulate the classic field blends of California, which were based on Zin and Petite Sirah, and probably rarely were dry. I get these wines, and I like them.... Read More

  • Well, he's also making wine in Brooklyn, which is where I am now. So if the plan is to buy grapes somewhere in California, ship them down, and turn them into wine, it's a shorter distance than sending them to the east coast! And there is indeed a tradition of doing that - it's what was done during Prohibition and I still know some Italians in Be... Read More

  • Earlier this year I was able to spend a couple of weeks in Piedmont. Of course my mission there was to asses the upcoming 2010 and 2011 Barolo and Barbaresco wines, an article which is nearing completion, but today I wanted to focus on wines that are more appropriate to the season. While I love Nebbiolo based wines , they are not necessarily an ... Read More
