  • From the article... I find it interesting what wine people (see article for what that comprises) found special...  and I like the last phrase  below:The first factor we asked our experts to focus on was the quality of individual bottles the wineries produced — particular vintages that stand out as stars in America’s wine scene. Next, we requeste... Read More

  • "Complexity is generally used to characterize something with many parts where those parts interact with each other in multiple ways."  Know that well, NG, in so many contexts.It was that kind of week this week. Now over. Friday night here, just got back from a couple days in Fukushima, battling with city bureaucrats to release funding for kinder... Read More

  • Al, Morton's markup is in many cases 4x. That is egregious, well beyond acceptability. I'm guessing those lockers for the 'rich folk' you mention are for BYOBs, though with temperature controlled storage charged by the restaurant. I wonder if corkage is waived for them.Though I hesitate to promote it, you might also like the Leviathan on the Som... Read More

  • Continuing on last week’s great start  with Ben Carter, introducing our favorite wine writers to you, this week we pick up the thread by interviewing Clifford Brown of Cliff’s picks.As I mentioned last week, the point of this series is to give you a better idea of the palates involved in the wine writing world today, and of course to show you th...

    From the article Getting to know: Clifford Brown


  • "I still prefer soft tannins however, and those tend to improve with age, right?"Actually, not. As Greg also alluded to above, big, fruit-forward (even blowsy) over-ripe wines, often picked later in the year and with correspondingly higher alcohol, tend not to age as well. 1997 was a famous vintage that everyone wanted to love in California (lik...

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • I have my two experiences to add, but neither one was myself or Sandra breaking the wine bottle; in this post I'll discuss the first one:(1)  My wife Sandra and I were at a vertical tasting of the famous Octagon and associated red wines down at the Barboursville Vineyards in the southern part of Virginia last year - October actually.  It was a f...

  • Hi guys:I was at a local wine and liquor store today; I buy quite a bit of stuff from them but don't really know any of the staff. It was quite warm and I was out running errands. I decided to stop by and pick up a few bottles of inexpensive wine (sub $15) that I can use in part for cooking.I guess maybe my hand was a little sweaty or something ... Read More
