  • My quest to uncover wine categories that aren’t getting as much love as they deserve continues, and just in time for Valentine’s Day. As luck would have it many of the same groups of wine that don’t get enough attention also represent terrific values for wine lovers. Too many wines, too little time is one reason that some of these categories are... Read More

  • Port is a category of wine that conjures up different images depending on your experience or taste. The styles and methodologies used to produce, and in particular, age Port are also pretty wide ranging. There are two kinds of Port that are more commonly known and leap to the forefront of people’s brains more often than others. One is Tawny Port... Read More

  • Hey everybody - I just came back from my trip, so a quick update is in order. Well, I was all set to go to Madrid and have an all-day group tour through Ribera del Duero. But- the day before I got an email from the tour agency canceling because they didn't have the minimum number of people. I had pretty much decided I'd just self-tour around Mad... Read More

  • Good distinction. If someone else pours, I may drink a lot of stuff I wouldn't buy myself. I'm not talking about price either, just the quality of what's in the glass.A lot of what comes out of Bordeaux is fine, but more isn't. Not the classified growths, but there are hundreds of producers who are putting things into bottles that should never b... Read More

  • Nice wines above...Did some more Old Fashione'd this weekend, finally trying some for the first time I've been able to appreciate them at the famous Cole's Sandwiches in downtown LA. They really pull out all the stops, the big block ice cube is a statement from the get go, as are the two different essences/rinds of orange, lemon, and the special... Read More

  • I'll be in Germany next week, and once I arrive I plan to drag my jet-lagged self to Alsace, France to tour a few wineries there (a couple hours from Frankfurt). BUT- I'm not really into white wines as much as reds, though I don't mind Gewurtzraminer and Dry Riesling.But I am thinking of taking a day off toward the end of the week. I can get pre... Read More

  • " but the idea of some pan-Italian red sauce restaurant wouldn't really have existed and no one would have said, "It's so authentic they ask if you want white or red sauce with your clams/mussels."Richard - not true at all. The Italians themselves, at least those I knew, spoke of themselves as being from Naples, Rome, Sicily, etc. But to non-Ita... Read More

  • It's encouraging that one of Lascombe's vignerons figured out that much of the acreage wasn't really second growth quality.  That's a real issue in Bordeaux:  A classified estate can buy lesser land and still bottle it as the cru classe wine.  It's not encouraging, if you have my palate, that Rolland is involved.  His method is to make the wines...

  • It’s getting to be that time of year when everything seems to be dedicated to stuffing -- from our tummies to stockings…to our skinny jeans! What if the holidays were different? What if you began the tradition of blissfully delicious health and wellness at your feast? Most of us cook for bigger crowds than normal and experience a minor (or major... Read More
