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 »

  • One of Syrah’s problem with consumers has always been the savory nature of the wine that is often coupled with some aggressive tannins. The solution to both issues, if and when they are viewed as problems, has been to get Syrah so ripe that it is all about fruit, has minimal tannins, and at the same time low acidity and no real complexity. As a ... Read More

  • They work fine for me. These people are internet challenged. It's about time they upgraded to real  equipment and they would stop having all these issues. ;)  Is Wine Good for You? Or Bad?

  • As a person who loves and frequently enjoys wine, I have been very disturbed lately by world, and various govt agencies, calling all ETOH consumption, including wine, to be "deadly", for the most part.    I have posted on this before, citing an article wherein the WHO called ethanol a major carcinogen.  While most just ignore this hype and move ...

  • 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 got so excited about dolcetto this year, see my report on The Return of Dolcetto, that I almost forgot about Barbera!  I love Barbera. It’s a rich wine, though too often spoofed up with too much oak, but when you find an example that focuses on the fruit you get a wine that is bursting with mouth cleansing acids, rich with plummy fruit, and li...

  • We tend to spend an awful lot of our time running around looking for things. We look for the greatest wines, within our budgets of course, and we look for the perfect wine for ribs, greek salad, or whatever it is we like to eat, and we seek out the greatest value wines on a regular basis. That last search can a get a little silly. Often we’re lo... 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...
