  • Working on a construction site up in the middle of former rice paddies north of Sendai for three days running. Installing a park with lots of exercise equipment for adults. Weather was over 35 degrees C all three days running, with humidity to boot. Escaped from tomorrow's concrete pour by talking a  contractor JV affiliated with our project int... Read More

  • I'm finally getting around to this.  Last week we spent a few days in the Central Coast.  I wanted to do a little wine tasting, and we headed over to Edna Valley.  For some reason Edna Valley seems to be the least appreciated AVA in the Central Coast region. I really don't get it.  There are several wineries there that offer terrific products at... Read More

  • How brutal was winter? Just forget it. Forget how cold it was, forget how much snow you had. Let your mouth tell you as your brain convinces you to push past cases of luscious and full-bodied red wines that are aching for you. I’m reaching past them, into the remnants of mixed cases for the delightful wines of summer. Patio wines, front stoop wi... Read More

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • Pinot noir has become the great alternative. When you don’t want to give another big red wine as a gift it opens up a world of possibilities. Immediately appreciated by name alone, Pinot seems to have developed a certain cachet as the thinking man’s red wine, though there is little evidence to support that. Perhaps it comes from the history that... Read More

  • It’s the holiday season and everyone is recommending Pinot Noir again. What is it with folks, do they just like to take the path of least resistance? Will there come a day when Pinot is not the end all of holiday wine recommendations? Probably not. Lambrusco and Blaufrankisch have a whole set of issues that will prevent them from ever garnering ... Read More

  • Pine Ridge Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 1995

    Snoothrank:

    Very dark violet color. Some oak, some cassis on the nose. Quite fruity on the tip of the tongue--boysenberries, prunes. Some earthiness as the wine travels over the palate. Then, the tannin puckeriness happens--not so much, I'm very OK with it. Fruity "sweetness" returns at the back of the throat ???? Very mellow, lengthy, enjoyable finis... Read More

  • I'm in Oregon and I'm trying to get into Pinot Noir, since it's all anyone ever drinks here - but I need a good summer-weight Pinot to try for my wine blog: http://gradsguidetowine.blogspot.comWhat are your favorite Pinot Noirs (specifically in Oregon but elsewhere will do too!)? Read More

  • So who goes to a Mexican restaurant thinking about wine?Not many people, but Salpicon restaurant in Chicago is working to change that. I’ve never been to Salpicon and frankly I’ve already forgotten how I found out about it, but wow, what a wine list!I know what you’re saying. Yes, great wine list, but Mexican food can be difficult to pair with w... Read More

  • Another interesting recent read, from a column by Laurie Daniel in the San Jose Mercury News.Reporting on some interesting market research, speculation on why tannins are so rounded and acid so lacking in reds these days, as well as an observation that America must finally be developing a wine culture of its own, "And that's a good thing."Any op...
