  • “Spat” means “late” in German. In (that crazy) German noun compounding, Spat + Burgunder = “late-ripener from Burgundy”. That, in turn, means Pinot Noir. Chances are good you’ve never seen a bottle of Spatburgunder, much less tasted one, but hopefully that soon changes. Today over one-third of German wine is red, and Spatburgunder is the leading...

  • DV-Cab Sav overload or Cab Sav ecstasy.... We have had all of these in the past. I would rank them as followed: Chimney Rock, either FJ or Wharton, St. Francis and Heritance, I could certainly see why you would go with SF at #2 nothing wrong with that. DM-I was not aware of the rules or purpose of the quiz...... Sorry I've been out of school for... Read More

  • That's Cab Sav overload.  I would just open them all (an hour ahead of tasting) and then decide which I like best.  The Chimney Rock is too early to drink.  The St. Francis is most likely the better of the rest.  The Heritance probably the least.  The Foley had good comments on Cellartracker.  I'm sure there'd be some surprises in group tasting....

  • This is a report I adapted from my recap on WB. Unfortunately a few guests fell ill in the days prior and had to bow out. Missed you Richard! All in all it was a fun evening with some interesting wines. Plenty of left overs to start the next incarnation. Weather was rain in the AM and we feared having to host indoors but the skies cleared around... Read More

  • Curious approach. Never heard of it. Decanting doesn't really have anything to do with price IMO, and it would never occur to me to prepare for drinking a better wine by drinking a worse one. It would be like going to a great restaurant but stopping to get some revolting fast food on the way to prepare for the better stuff.Why not just drink the... Read More

  • As a rule of thumb I decant every wine bottle north of $50 for at least 45 mins. During the 45 mins we usually enjoy half a glass of a daily drinker to get our palate ready for the really good stuff. Thoughts on this approach would be great? What's your approach other than PNP.....   Read More

  • October is National Pasta Month. And of all the Italian culinary products, pasta best exemplifies Italy’s dynamic personality. Sauces vary as do the hundreds of shapes and sizes. All are rich in history and tradition. Pasta dishes are local and seasonal, usually easy to prepare, lively and fun. The height of pasta’s elegant artistry is manifeste... Read More

  • So in my line of work--some of you know that I'm a criminal defense attorney in the Bay Area--we don't often cross paths with the winemakers of the bay area.  But every now and then a case shows up in court that involves the wine world.  Two have attracted my attention this month.  The first involves Donkey and Goat, a hip winery in Berkeley tha...

  • Last night we enjoyed a Duckhorn wine, specifically the 2011 Paraduxx Zinfandel / Cabernet Sauvignon blend.  A very nice wine indeed, although I would rather drink one of their cabs.  Our meal consisted of pasta and salad, and after watching Jeopardy, I opened the first release of the 2008 RdV Lost Mountain wine for a taste.  Again I would prefe...
