  • In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More

  • Since in another thread we've been getting sillier and sillier, I thought I'd bring some spillover into a new thread.What wine goes in the location shown below? My first choice would be something else (margaritas; or Pacifico, even Tecate with a 100% agave tequila or mescal shot backing it up--alternatively even Negro Modelo or Bohemia darker br...

  • Almost fruity by design, because that’s what we know you like. The natural, slightly bitter character of Malbec is being obscured, in those examples that through clonal selection, cropping, or vintage character still display it. In its place we’re increasingly finding the fruit that consumers have grown to expect from their wines. Not enough fru... Read More

  • While this tasting predates my tasting of 1980 Barolo by more than a year, I have been moved by the performance of those wines to publish these notes. As much a surprise as the 1980 horizontal, though for entirely different reasons, this is the tasting that set my expectations for the 1980 so terribly low. Prior to both tastings I had had enough...

  • Yesterday I presented a brief overview of Washington state to help put what follows in context. I spent a week traveling the region recently and was franklyunsure of how these articles would play out. I didn’t know exactly what to expect and was prepared to write apair of articles on Washington Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, as well as Syrah, bu... Read More

  • Tomorrow I’ll begin a two part look at wines that I recently tasted while traveling throughout the state of Washington, but I thought it would be a good idea to preface those notes today with a brief look at some of the wheres and whys of Washington State’s wines.Washington State remains a bit of mystery to most people, pumping out attractive wi...

  • Tomorrow I will write about wines that, while fabulous, you have only a slim chance of tracking down, particularly in pristine condition. Today, to preventatively atone for that transgression I bring you wines that are not only fabulous, but are both well priced and in the market today. They also serve as an introduction to 2010 in Tuscany, anot... Read More

  • One of my New Year’s resolutions has been to clean up the cellar a bit. A big project but one we should all undertake, To that end I rooted around a bit, admittedly not making much progress, but none the less finding a few bottles that i had been waiting to taste. Waiting for other peer examples to taste them with. Examples that have not materia... Read More

  • It has been some four years since I last took a look at 1989 Barolo in any depth. Now at age 25 these wines should be in the prime of their lives, at least the better examples still out there. Increasingly rare and well traded, there is much to be concerned with with these wines. Faulty corks, poor storage along the way and the simple vagaries o... Read More

  • Just a quick hello. I am totally un-educated in the wine realm. As a matter of fact I never drank a glass until over age 40 and even then barely could finish it and would usually switch to a nice dark beer LOL.  Anyway about 2 years ago my good friend's husband decided he was going to show me what I was missing and every time we went out to dinn...
