  • Riesling could be eclipsing Chardonnay as a go-to white wine grape for wine drinkers. My definition of wine drinkers here includes folks who don’t drink wine on a regular basis, but know a few grapes by name when ordering at a restaurant or picking up a bottle for a special occasion. This says a whole lot about Riesling. Many perfectly fine indi... Read More

  • Just came back from the Union des Grands Crus tasting, which included most of those mentioned above. I'd pass on the Langoa-Barton, which had pretty big fruit but it was all hidden by wood, Branaire-Ducru also had big fruit but smelled like old furniture. Those were a little weird.Talbot was pretty good, still had some of the characteristic funk... Read More

  • Quite the sea change in Bordeaux as prices seem a bit more affordable these days (as opposed to the 2009 bull rush just 5-6 years ago), and it appears they have a vintage that strikes the right balance between cool and warm. Not a too hot or too cold year that is, probably the first one like it since 2008.Eyeing Grand Puy Lacoste at $53/each, Du... Read More

  • Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • I was strolling down the wine aisle last week when my eyes settled on a label. It sent me loopy! Its cute line drawing of an ancient castle drew my attention but those words...those unpronounceable words…Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh! If I’m struggling to cope imagine what poor Joe and Josephine Public are thinking, was my first thought. Where’s the win... Read More

  • You’ll know a glass of Bordeaux when you sniff it -- from the pencil shavings of Pauillac to the elderflowers of Pessac-Leognan. Bordeaux is synonymous quality; it’s a universal truth of the collective wine consciousness. But while quality is often associated with premium pricing, this doesn’t mean you can’t find a great bargain in Bordeaux. The... Read More

  • Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More

  • One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend.  Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we?  Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an...

  • It’s time to stop playing it safe with your local gnosh-spot wine list. Earlier today, United Kingdom-based newspaper The Guardian featured the insights and opinions of sommelier Zeren Wilson, who gave readers heaps of good advice on how to look like a pro next time you lay eyes on a wine list. “What’s in a wine list,” Wilson asked to begin the ...
