Oh my this is a surprise. There has been a mini proliferation of Cornas producers on the market lately but this Balthazar takes the cake! This is great Syrah floral with deep notes of classic violets, minerality in spades, you can smell the granite and...

White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options.

And morels, which were an early epiphany for me before I started traveling all o... Read More
Morels are in season and I just picked up 3/8 of a pound, so I'm looking for some interesting and delicious recipes to try, so any suggestions, please post them! Read More
Due to popular demand (don't ask where that demand came from or you'll spoil my fun), we appear to need some new wine discussion topics. This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too. What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ... Read More
According to reports from the Moscow Times and several industry news outlets, Russian officials are ready to tell France's wine export industry to stick a cork in it, so to speak.
