Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event. It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California. Talk about getting out of the box.

At this point I can identify which lines I like, and which I don’t, but I really hope to be able to take it a step further and understand what makes it so that I like certain wines and ... Read More
