  • As you may know I love Zinfandel. I think it’s the greatest domestic wine produced in this country, both for its historic significance as well as for the exquisite expressions of variety and terrori that the great examples are capable of. As these great examples continue to become more expensive, many are above $40 now, certainly remaining good ...

  • Napa Valley grape growers and winemakers wore out their worry beads in 2011. Rain came early, often and didn’t want to go away. It was a cool year as well, forcing winemakers to spend even more time walking the vineyards than usual. Napa Valley is accustomed to dry, warm, sunny growing seasons. It’s Cabernet Sauvignon wines are widely known for ... Read More

  • To welcome fall, and without a doubt the season has arrived, like clockwork, the moment our Labor Day weekend had wrapped up, I have always had a bit of a tradition of opening some Barbaresco. While my heart may belong to Barolo, the somewhat more elegant and more approachable wines of Barbaresco are perfect for times when you are looking for so... Read More

  • Massolino Nebbiolo Langhe 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Just a selection of less ripe, less powerful grapes, a little Barolo one to one and a half years in botte, very Barolo like elevage Lovely fruity on the nose with aromas of wild raspberry in alcohol that are light and fragrant, followed by a bit of a jammy wild berry note. Opening with good acids and ripe tannins this displays lovely, burnished ... Read More

  • Prunotto Nebbiolo d'Alba Occhetti 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A subzone of Monteroero Grapes are bought from a single vineyard 10 months in wood, almost all botte Nice classic nose of rose hips, prune plum and cherry in alcohol. Smooth and nicely balanced in the mouth this is easygoing on the palate and very much in the style of the vintage. With good fruit, modest complexity, classic hints of leather ap... Read More

  • While there are some tastings I do not look forward to each year, there are others that I can’t wait for. For the most part that means things like Barolo and northern Rhone Syrah, but it also includes the greatest set of value wines I get to sample each year; inexpensive Portuguese red wines!Now, admittedly that’s a pretty broad category of vino...

  • In a world where extremes are becoming the paradigms for perfection its a little surprising that one doesn’t hear much of the wines of Saxony. Strike that. One doesn’t hear anything about these wines. And that is not surprising because the production is tiny and the wines almost all consumed locally. But you should be hearing about these wines, ...

  • I was right, Taste of Sonoma was a cattle call. The gates opened at 11:00, we rolled in at 11:30 and the line was longer than I have ever seen. This was half way in... Not sure what was worse, waiting in line or being treated to a woman behind me going on and on about wine, grapes, commercial harvesters etc when she had no clue what she was talk...

  • The basic bottlings of those Pinots are generally right around 13.9%. But Calera also makes a number of vineyard designated bottlings, like those from Mt. Harlan, that come in at 14.9. So does Acacia - DeSoto and Horseshoe Bend for example, and Cambria - like Barbara's.That's right around what the Seghesio Sonoma Zin usually is. Then there are b... Read More

  • So, I finally re-introduced myself to Zinfandel.  I bought a half bottle of Seghesio Sonoma '12.  I decantered it for 1 hour and ate it with spaghetti w/tomato-basil sauce.  The wine was dominated by the alcohol -- 14.8% -- and while I tasted black fruit and a very interesting roasted sage note on the mid-palate, the alcohol drive of the wine ma...
