  • Barolo may be Italy’s most famous red but surprisingly it hails from a very small vineyard region. Tucked into the top northwest corner, just south of the medieval town of Alba in the heart the Langhe region of Piemonte, it’s barely 8 kilometres wide. The vineyards are breathtaking. The snowcapped Alps form a distant backdrop to a series of hill... 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...

  • I've taken the liberty of posting a portion of Kermit Lynch's most recent newsletter. It's a piece Jim Harrison wrote for them nearly a decade ago on wine's significance in his life, and there are several specific examples of food and wine matching.Harrison died recently and I mourned him as another of the greats who have passed this decade. Lot... Read More

  • Ah, research never tasted as good when we were working.  Now it's more of a quest to find the perfect wine for our taste.  Good luck with that.Tonight we held another wine tasting party, this time it was hosted at our friends Sally & Bob's house in Centreville, VA.  I ran the blind tasting activities while Sally and Bob served up the food and ke...

  • As per your OP's title, JD, next a look at CA. From the Wine Institute:"Chardonnay, with 95,000 acres, is the wine type variety with the most acreage planted in California."Cabernet Sauvignon was the second most planted winegrape in California with 76,800 total acres."The red wine category for the second year in recent history edged out white wi...

  • Trying to recall a conversation we had a little while ago on this subject.Whats the most widely planted (acreage) and produced (bottles) red grape in CA, U.S., and worldwide?I seem to recall a Snooth article mentioning Grenache as the most widely planted red grape worldwide, but that was some years ago. I'm assuming it's Chardonnay for white? Read More

  • Hard to say what it exactly is, but we've all had moments when wines were really open and "singing" maybe after a quick decant, or hours of air, they just started to open and catch fire. I can think of quite a few wines that stick out in this way, though it seems like a very unpredictable phenomenon. Also, what the heck is going on with wines th... Read More

  • Red, it's context:  Pinot is supposed to deliver a certain kind of flavor, aroma, mouthfeel, and, for me, none of that is there with Meiomi.  I wouldn't bash it if I didn't try it.  (I didn't really bash it so much, either, just said it wasn't much like PN to me and wasn't very enjoyable.)  Big commercial wines:  Well, define that.  A lot of goo...
