The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More
White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More
Apart from lack of hygiene in the winery, what part of the winemaking process allows for a funky nose? Read More
I've had this in my possession for awhile now and don't know a whole lot about wine; is there anything special about this wine? Read More
It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015. I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits. And the taste?" regarding the... Read More
Ironic that Miller's gold-laden cans of High Life beer boast the motto, “The Champagne of beers”, isn't it? This past week news outlet CNBC promoted the power of sparkling wine, championing the refreshing wine in lieu of beer, whose bloaty bubbles, the story said, are on the decline. While beer sales still beat out receipts from wine purchases ... Read More
v v, I have never tried an Insignia. I do have one bottle in my inventory--from the somewhat maligned 1997 vintage. As I suspect you might be aware, on, I believe, the "Watcha drinking. . . ." thread I have been periodically reporting on my experiences with 1997 Cabs. (The last couple were very good.) I am now down to the Insignia and a Dunn... Read More
I’m part Irish, but I’m not sure how much. I’m not Catholic and my surname is decidedly English. But the family tree has branches throughout the British Isles and I sit here today with blond hair, a red beard, freckles, and the inability to get a tan. On top of that, my grandmother plays about a dozen instruments and has often gone to Ireland to... Read More
I spearheaded this incredible custom design last month. The ambient temperature in my region is approximately 55 degrees throughout the day; ideal for harnessing the explosive potential lurking within this vast selection. The tight seal on this cellar door makes for the perfect, dank environment. I have plans to expand later this year. Okay, eno... Read More
In this case, a '79 Mondavi Chardonnay Reserve stole the show. Just the fact that it was still upright, despite passive cellaring (another from a previously discussed estate sale my neighbor scored on) was enough to write about. However, this surprisingly gave some real, almost sublime pleasure, despite being on the precipice of oxidation. It dr... Read More
