  • Napa Valley grape growers and winemakers wore out their worry beads in 2011. Rain came early, often and didn’t want to go away.

  • I know there have been at least one or two conversations about buying wines at Costco, but I happened to catch the one hour documentary about Costco on CNBC, last night.  They actually spent a significant portion of the program (8-9 minutes) about wine sales.  Here is the thing that blew me away.  Apparently, annual wine sales at Costco exceed a...

  • (Ha ha just realized it sounds like my wine is going on Spring Break in a nasty bikini or something....)Anyway, I found tucked in the back of my wine fridge a fairly nice ($40?) bottle of white wine that I had totally forgotten about, from 2007.  Because I remember loving it, I'd like to share it with friends who've invited us to a nice dinner a...

  • Rustridge Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Estate Bottled 1997

  • Living in Sonoma County my cellar is pretty Cali-Centric. I mean in an earthquake it just may break off and fall into the Pacific Ocean. So tonight I'm going with something completely different. I picked up an El Nido Clio 2008 that I'm giving a test drive to see if I want more. Anything other than California wine or Rhones and I am treading on ... Read More

  • A few months ago I started a wine blog, freshvino.com.  It's mostly news, facts and stories about wine and the wine business that I think will be interesting to people.  There's almost no wine reviews because I think so many of them are pretentious.  I was wondering whether other people like reviews on blogs?  I DO like ratings, like the ones yo...

  • Well I have plans to include several Syrahs in this thread over the next 2 weeks but let me begin with one of my favorite Syrah producers. J L Chave and his lovely 1996 Hermitage:Richly aromatic from the moment this is opened offering up an array of gamy tones to the earthy, blackberry fruit. Integrated in the mouth with the acidity seemingly qu... Read More

  • With our troubled times I very frequently asked Where are the values? While the world is awash in both inexpensive swill and expensive fine wine the trick, more important today than ever, is to find the wines that skirt the edges of both: those inexpensive fine wines.While I know that $30 for a bottle of wine is not an inconsequential amount I ...
