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 »

  • 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

    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.
