  • Have you discovered the joys of sipping your rum neat, or are you only mixing it into cocktails? Both are certainly delicious ways to enjoy rum. However if you’re not yet familiar with expressions that can be sipped much like one would scotch you’re missing out.

  • 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...

  • Wasn't the osso bucco - it was lamb belly this time. I'd never had it before. Pretty wonderful actually. There was indeed a corked wine that JD was too late to enjoy - they took it to the kitchen to use for cooking. It was a 1990 Brunello, which I had high hopes for.I agree with the consensus for the reds - the Oddero was by far the best of the ... Read More

  • Okay, so the last photo is a different book.  (Read carefully at the bottom of the post and you'll see what I'm talking about.)  That book had a lot of space devoted to NY Wines, including the crappy Taylor stuff and other things that were available in Ithaca in college that put me onto beer and whiskey for a while.  (I was legal the entire time...

  • I mentioned this a while ago, but didn't get around to the post.  We stayed from September to end of December at a condominium in a complex built in the '70s. They've renovated and rebuilt since then (there were several major lawsuits for construction defects--built on fill!), but the architecture and the vibe is still very of that period. Our u...

  • Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee. So on short notice I decided to let them all know I was coming to town, and luckily I got a good tip on an excellent restaurant near my hotel, Nico Osteria. Have ... Read More
