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 »

  • About eight years ago, I rented this house on Stinson Beach for a week from this wine writer.  He left us a bottle of Bell Cab, which started me on my Bell fixation.  I read one of his books while we were there and he said of PS, "It survives.  Whether it improves is another question." Or words to that effect.  PS has so much tannin it might jus... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Whatcha drinking tonight?

  • Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics.  This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too.  What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ...

  • After last week’s disappointing look at value priced Zinfandel you would be right to think that this week’s take on value priced Syrah, with a focus on Australian Shiraz, might produce equally horrifying results. After all if there was a poster child for big, oaky, goopy, and slightly sweet wines in the marketplace Aussie Shiraz certainly would ... Read More

    From the article Value Syrah $15 and Under

  • 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?

    Forum post in the topic Vilifying wine

  • 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, ...

    From the article Wines You'll Probably never Try

  • 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...
