There are a lot of great wine values out there, if you know where - and how - to find them. Unfortunately, there's even more wine that's not so great - and at all sorts of prices. Our first duty is to ensure that none of the lesser stuff gets near our shelves-or yours! For every bottle that makes it into the store, at least ten get the boot. To make the cut, a wine has to have easy-to-love fruit, beautiful balance, and taste delicious right out of the bottle. Anything less won't do. Our shelf talkers are meant to provide you with realworld information you can use to make better, more enjoyable wine purchases. Yes, you'll learn what's in a given bottle of wine, but you'll also read about serving tips, food pairing suggestions and other things that will help you enjoy your wine even more. And, if you're still stumped about what to buy, you can confidently ask us for help, because we regularly taste our wines. Let us help you find the right wine - whatever the occasion, reason, or season. We realize Read more »

  • So what’s the first thing you think of when you read Cariñena? I thought of the grape Cariñena, aka Carignane, eponymous as it is. What I did not think of was the region Cariñena in Spain’s province of Aragon. Why is that? It’s a good question, and one I resolved while visiting the region briefly early last month. Cariñena the region doesn’t jum... Read More

  • Earlier this year I was able to spend a couple of weeks in Piedmont. Of course my mission there was to asses the upcoming 2010 and 2011 Barolo and Barbaresco wines, an article which is nearing completion, but today I wanted to focus on wines that are more appropriate to the season. While I love Nebbiolo based wines , they are not necessarily an ... Read More

  • As many of you might know I am half Italian, with family that comes from the province of Trentino in northern Italy. It’s where the seeds for my love for wine were originally planted, and there are plenty of fabulous wines produced there. Though little of it finds it’s way to our shores. That is slowly changing but the truth is there is only so ... Read More

  • Last week I began my summer time look at Zinfandel by focusing on Mendocino and lake counties, two regions that have limited presence in the Zin lovers mind. Today I'm taking a different tact and focusing instead on lodi, a veritable Zin lovers paradise.Why you ask?Well simply put it's a region that not only has a great climate for Zinfandel, wi...

  • Maybe.The reason is that there's a heirarchy in Italy. Langhe is a DOC, or Denominazione di Origine Controllata. That means the grape varieties and winemaking are controlled.But Barolo and Barbaresco are DOCG, or Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita, which is the highest classification in Italy. It means that not only are things cont... Read More

  • California, the land of sunshine, free spirits, and big wines. Right? Yes, of course, all that is true but today we are seeing that free spirited attitude change the paradigm for wine production. Some might say that we are witnessing a return to a different style of wine. Fresher, lower in alcohol and having more in common with wines produced se... Read More

  • Another in my series of reports focusing on the wines I was able to sample at the prowein event held in March of this year in Dusseldorf, Germany. Today we’re talking about Chianti Classico, soon to be followed by thoughts on a line-up of the new Gran Selezione wines. I’m not sure we need yet another level for Chianti, but that too shall wait fo... Read More

  • Casaloste Chianti Classico 2011

    Snoothrank:

    90% Sangiovese, 10% merlot A bit tight on the nose and frankly weird smelling of sweet oak and grape jelly. In the mouth one finds a wine that is both rich and thin. Soft and shapeless on the tongue, this is matte and has an extracted feel that is not entirely unappealing on a textural level but there is no depth, nuance, of distinct flavor eit... Read More

  • Hello,My name is Kim and I just happened across this site tonight and was quite impressed with it.  To be as brief as possible, I love wine and would love to learn as much as possible about it, particularly so that I can better contribute to my Facebook page I just started called "For The Love Of Wine."  I impulsively decided to start it last ni...

  • Sangiovese is one of my favorite grapes. I probably consume more Sangiovese than any other variety, though usually in the guise of chianti or rosso di Montalcino. This group of wine represents the true value plays in Tuscan Sangiovese. often blended, in proportions that makes these similar to chianti, these wines take advantage of the enormous v... Read More
