Grapes The Wine Company
Maybe its the food and company I usually have when I am drinking Amarone, but I truly love this style of wine. Big, intense and robust. Cesari Amarone is complex with flavors of fruit that lingers and warms (both mouth and spirit). Most people expec...

Pinot Noir / $19 Wilamette Valley / Oregon A good friend just returned from Portland, and picked up some Oregon Pinot Noir for us to try. We tasted three wines, all in the $20 range. Only one stood out, and for the $20 price tag, Willamette Valley ...
Interesting wine. I'm not sure if it contains any grapes - I think it does - and clearly it has some honey. The aroma is tart and steely. It is carbonated and tastes like a sweet prosecco or some other kind of sparkling wine. There is some honey ...
I agree with what I found on the net: ... rounds off any dish ... The noble Chardonnay has rich, but still soft acids, a fruity aroma and a full taste, which acts as a perfect complement to many gastronomic specialties. It loves the company of several ...

Texas Roussanne Tasted Blind Against California and France - Comes Out Top by Andrew ChalkWe have reported that the Roussanne grape does well in Texas’s climate and soil and pondered whether it is the next breakthrough Texas grape. The answer will come when Texas Roussanne wines match the quality of Roussanne wines from California. In order to f... Read More
I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines. Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times. Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends? These ...

Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner? I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia. This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost... Read More
Hi everyone. My wife Sandra and I have been into wine for the past few years and that's led to a few trips to Napa Valley and related areas in 2012 and 2013. We enjoy all wines but reds are our favorites. We hosted our first wine tasting party last night and it was a fun event - sixteen wine lovers trying different wines in a blind tasting. ... Read More
It being earth day tomorrow I thought this would be a fine time to explore attitude towards the whole organic/natural/biodynamic movement. I reached out to some wine professionals to get their opinions about these wines, but before I turn the stage over to them I’d like to explore the situation briefly.Before we consider the value of these wines...

In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More
So my wife loves zins but we really like a velvety mouth feel with some good fruit. Right now our favorite is The Zin by Cosentino. If anyone has recommendations my wife is starting to sware off all other booze except this zin so help me out. We are open to other reds as well. Read More
. . . but has anybody participated in, or read about, a blind tasting of multiple samples of the same wine that have been opened for varying amounts of time?Many years ago I subscribed to Stereophile magazine. Not that I could afford the high-end equipment that they reviewed--heck, I could barely afford the magazine subscription--but I enjoy mus... Read More
Here’s an article that had a slim chance of being written. Pull together a case of wine from a vintage that is deemed passable at best and drink them at 33 years of age. I mean what the hell do you expect to find?How about:People, even the experts don’t know much.What is written about older vintages is a pile of steaming supposition.We are just ... Read More
It’s the heart of winter here in the northern hemisphere, a time when our attentions turn to robust red wines. One wine in particular seems to be relegated to these cold months, and that is a bit of a shame. I’m talking about the often misunderstood Amarone. A powerful wine, one with relatively high alcohol and rich flavors, but one that often i... Read More
