So several years ago while touring the CA wine country I came across a nice place where I liked both the proprieters and the wine. I signed up for their monthly wine club. A month later instead of getting my wine I get a notice that they can't ship to MA. Somehow I remained on their mailing list and now they can ship to MA so I ordered my very f... Read More
Had the pleasure to taste with GregT in San Diego yesterday evening. I had the idea to pair up Greg and a friend from the Netherlands who was in San Diego for a convention, due to their interest in Tokaj, and it seemed to work well, everyone having a good time.Lessons Learned: Harslevelu is good stuff, and probably my new favorite white wine gra...

Last week I met Jon to trade some bottles. We met at Hi Time Liquor in Costa Mesa--a store with a very excellent inventory of wines. I might have surprised Jon a bit when I declined to do any shopping. There have been numerous hits to my credit cards, lately, and I thought that I should tone it down a bit.Well, that lasted until today.I'd bee... Read More

The dinner is going to be with Gilles Nicault from Long Shadows next week.Naturally I'll be doing my homework in advance to learn what I can and think about good questions I'd like to ask. I know that Long Shadows has been discussed h... Read More

I really did not know what it meant--me being very focussed on my California world.I did, of course, learn that a Super Tuscan was a wine that was made from grapes that were outside the Tuscany tradition--specifi...

Following a Wall Street Journal article yesterday, wine sites and blogs are exploding with news that Robert Parker has sold a substantial share of The Wine Advocate to a group of young investors in Singapore. The "game-changing" publication will see some major changes. Do you think these changes will be a good thing or do they risk losing subsc... Read More
I'm rather new to wine. I've only had de-alcoholized red wines from Ariel and I've had some red and white wines with some relatives who really know their wine. I remember enjoying it very much. But recently I've gotten into wine on my own. I recently picked up some Yellow Tail Shiraz from a nearby Total Wine store. Specifically, I picked up a f... Read More
I am a dyed in the wool fan of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlots, Sangiovese's and a few Chardonnays and Pinot Grigio's. I am trying to widen my spectrum to include Pinot Noir's. I live in the Pacific Northwest so the Pinot Noir's are readily available due to the large varieties from Oregon.Before I embark on purchasing some different brands I would l... Read More
I had posted the list of wines that I was going to be tasting for my upcoming Syrah evening, but as I posted elsewhere, things have changed a bit. After finding, and then losing, a bottle of 1990 Cline Syrah, and spending almost an hour looking for the damn thing, I discovered a few other bottles of Syrah lying about so my previous list now look...
