Decided to do a beef pot roast tonight - soaked the beef in a garlic, red pepper corn, cabby sauce for 24 hrs. The 3 1/2 hrs of cooking in a mirepiox, with additional garlic, shallots, green and red peppers and mushrooms.Didn't want anything to big - picked these two dailies: I was pleasantly surprised by these 2 efforts from Washington. The C... Read More
A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak. I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines... Read More
Hi everyone. This is my first post on the boards. My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit. We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More
v v, I don't choose wines based on ABV, but does that one say 19%? My eyes are pretty old. So, I may be misreading. If so, is it fortified or did they add a pound of C&H sugar for ever 10 pounds of grapes? OK, this one is not as unusual as the Abouriou that v v had a couple months ago, but from the same maker, Old World WInery, and, you have... Read More
"When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed. Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women. This morning, with... Read More
Recent research shows that a glass of red wine a day is like twenty minutes of vigorous exercise. So before summer rosés officially take hold, get in on the last gasps of Cabernet. I tasted through forty different Cabernets, all under $16. There are some superb examples here that you’re going to want to try. Cabernet, because of the value inhere... Read More

15 years ago, before I retired, I had a couple of bottles of Chevalier de Bayard. It was the best tasting wine I'd ever had. But now that I'm on a fixed income, I can no longer spend $25 on a bottle of wine.Does anybody have any ideas of what wines are close to it but less expensive?Thank you Read More
When Tony and Herta (H.B.) purchased their 30-acre Rutherford property in 1982, the vineyard grounds were wild and overgrown. Through passion and hard work, the Peju family has transformed their Rutherford Estate into Peju—a wine, architecture, and art lover’s paradise. Today, 30 years later, Peju remains a family-owned and family-run estate win... Read More
Second trip to the Hollwood Bowl this summer. The program:Concerto in C Major for Violin, Cello and Piano, Ludwig van BeethovenSymphony No. 5 in C Minor, Ludwig van Beethoven It is unusual that the concert did not start with an overture, but that being the case, the "Dude" hustling through the last movement of the symphony and omitting the repea...
