  • DM - Thanks for all the good information regarding Stags Leap.  We opened the bottle last night at a wine dinner with our neighbors (see my Weekend Wines topic for details) and I even asked to have the 2012 Stags Leap 'The Leap' Cabernet Sauvignon decanted.  Yes, I'm that kind of guy even though I don't detect complexities in wine and I'll say i...

  • "but, alas, they usually are not available for retail purchase."NG, here's a simple example in your neighborhood. That merchant usually has something interesting at a decent price. I post this one because I've had it on site (meaning on that island, not in some virtual reality). One of my favorite parts of Italy, though there are several of thos... Read More

  • Fox, the Schram Mirabelle is up there with the worst wines I've tasted! Would not buy another but would sip again if poured just to confirm if it was a bad bottle or not.It is a good time to plan these things out, and sounds like you had a great experience. People coming up to you years later is definitely a feather in your cap, hoping for a sim... Read More

  • Nice, Lucha.  BTW, I want to guest for you soon.  Got an interesting bottle for Xmas.DM, that wheelbarrow is for the rambunctious kids to push each other around in.  That Ojai house is just classic the way it is. It should never be changed.  Probably belonged to some minor rock star or something.  I actually would like to get a horse skin/hair r... Read More

  • Casa Rondena Serenade 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Another local Wine and a good one. Pale, pale gold in the glass. Opens with baking yeast and minerals; then black tea and honey; more honey and baking spices. Honey carries over to the palate. Semi-dry with a lush mouthfeel. Little acidity. Peach and cream initially and as it opens, it loses the sweetness and becomes more herbal and mineral with... Read More

  • '64, '67, '71 all look like good vintages worth of exploration, so why can't I get myself to pull the trigger on such things?  Read More

  • Had a fun tasting matchup, another in the series of helping a young couple pick out their wedding wines. Schramsberg was my first thought, but I think they may have balked at the price (our local has a great deal @ $27), so we went ahead and set up a tasting along with a Roederer Estate, which sells closer to the $20 level.Started out with the R...

  • When I first saw the announcement that China was calling for international winemakers to come to Ningxia back in 2012 I was intrigued. However, being 7 months pregnant at the time and about to begin a job transition, it didn’t seem like the timing was on my side. This year, when I saw that Ningxia was once again asking for international winemake... Read More

  • Yes.  Mozart and I share the same day.  My wife was a music major when I met her (she switched to engineering soon after) and I think that was the reason she was initially interested in me.  Pity I have no musical talent.  I tried to play the accordian as a kid and didn't get far.  Sandra plays the piano quite well however.  Today, a day in whic...

  • I wouldn't completely write off the Finger Lakes, but I would be ... but ... ... but there are a couple good things these days.  There is also a Cab Franc from the Hudson River Valley that's not bad, although I cannot remember the name and I suspect they had no significant distribution.&nbs Read More
