  • Jura's great. First encountered the wines when I made a trip there in the effort to chase down some vin jaune (grapes dried on straw before vinification) I'd heard about but not yet seen, back in the early '80s. During that trip I also  got to meet their distinctive-but-excellent chardonnays, in depth, and some pure PNs. On later trips, and thro... Read More

  • Wow, where do I start? Famed horticulturist Luther Burbank called Sonoma County God's chosen palce. We probably have more fresh local/organic fruits and vegetables here on a year round basis than anywhere else in the Country. Do I take it for granted? Yup, until I travel to other parts of the Country. Then I get a feeling of pride and appreciati... Read More

  • I believe the group associated with this wine tasting event is Feast it Forward.  I cannot see a history of them hosting this event on their web page though, so it's hard for me to confirm.  Several of the wineries do establish a connection though (B Wise).  What do you guys know about Feast it Forward?  The 'GEMS' I believe represents the jewel...

  • That's pretty funny, Fox.When I started inventorying my wine, sometime in the early 1980s, I had a looseleaf binder with columnar ledger sheets.  When I consdered column headings, I was pretty sure I wanted to note the name of the wine and the vintage date.  Beyond that I thought the source would be neat, the purchase price, and the date purchas...

  • OK, what's your favorite market in your area for buying good meats, dairy, produce, etc. when you want to prepare a proper meal, likely accompanied by wine? Or just for everyday living? And what do they provide that you value so?Last couple of times I was through San Fran I realized Bi-Rite in the Mission would be mine there. Very much appreciat... Read More

  • Sandra and I were invited to attend a special wine tasting event in Washington DC tonight - called, "GEMS on the Road".  These were wine selections from twelve California wineries, with an emphasis on Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals.  It wasn't cheap mind you as you could select as much as you wished to consume.  There were horderves...

  • You can buy 2015 California Cabernet if you look around, I'm sure.  Heck, maybe even 2016.  But the Italians make you wait a little longer--five years for Brunello, and four, more or less, for Barolo.  So that means the 2013 Barolos are starting to hit the market, and it's a highly anticipated vintage.  2014 suffered from hail, so it's going to ...

  • Nothing that I paid over $50 for.  I do have a few 2013 Rene Rostaing C-R that are probably the top of my Syrah price list.  But the highest average price for wine in my cellar is Barolo--hard to find many wines under $50, although I try.  Speaking of which, the 2013 Barolos are hitting the market just about now.  I've been thinking about what I...

  • ...she's not as much of a Syrah fan as I.It would be hard to find anyone who is as much of a Syrah fan as you are.  And probably impossible to find anyone who has scouted out so many good ones. Last two nights, I drank Ribera del Duero wines.  Both were good, both were very cheap. Both were 2012 and Robles.  First night was Vina Arnaiz.  I've ha... Read More
