  •   So here's the next challenge I'm throwing down to those who think they can match wine to anything. ;-)Less tropical than either the first challenge or the second one--match wines to this locale and cuisine ,,, First some scenery, both countryside and urban.

  • One of the enemies of the wine lover is time. The greatest wines in the world are meant to be aged, to be given the time to allow oxygen, and who knows what else, to work their magic on young wine. The edges smooth out, the texture turns silky, flavors gain nuance, depth and complexity. It's magic in the bottle, though nobody can fully explain w... Read More

  • On a friday, some fries and a beer might sound tempting. For a fancy dress party? The salty, fatty flavors of the fried and refreshing, sparkling feeling of the drink are still attractive traits, but we need a luxury upgrade to match those pearls and stilettoes!  Triple-cooked sweet-potato fries with truffle mayo paired with champagne tend to ge...

  • The New York Review of Books is not the first place most of us turn (or even the third or tenth) for wine talk, so, as a subscriber, I thought I'd bring attention to this terrific review of Neurogastronomy, a new book by Gordon Shepherd--who is not a wine reviewer with a blog to promote but a neuroscientist.  Although the review title is a bit m...

  • there has always been controversy over what causes the headache of red wine.  sulfites, whatever.  they don't really have anything to do with it.  sulfites are everywhere, used to preserve most everything you eat.  i've heard that changing brands of wine can help.  i've also heard of taking antihistamines.  any other suggestions i can pass along...

  • Being a fan of Pinot Noir from Burgundy, Cabernet and Merlot from the left and right banks of Bordeaux and Rhone varietals from, you guessed it, the Rhone valley, I've had trouble finding wines that I really like from California. Sure there have been a number of very good, and occasionally great, bottles, but my experience has been about a 20% a... Read More

  • I would like to buy some 2000 vintage wine (the year my husband and i were married) that would be best drunk in 2010 to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary.
