  • Regardless of the Barolo's style, you'll get more of its potential out of of a 15-year-old Bordeaux or CA cab than you will out of any serious four or five year old Nebbiolo from the Piedmont. Plus if you insist on drinking 3 to 4 year old wines, how will your palate have a chance to evolve? Decanting is not the be all and end all and certainly ... Read More

    Forum post in the topic What have you bought lately?


  • I started a thread on WB recently, and not many folks agreed with my stance, though I suspect many more do agree that just don't say anything.Strictly speaking about Northern Hemisphere Wines, leaving the various barrel aging out of it for sake of discussion. Read More

  • DM,I don't think BC really has something akin to a 'cult' wine or winery yet.  There are some very collected wines though.  There are several wines that are $100-$130, but honestly, I don't think they're worth that.  They're good, but that's a LOT of dough and I could buy some killer Barolo, Brunello, Amarone, you name it.  Leonetti (almost).  F...

    Forum post in the topic Some good BC wine available...


  • Forgive me if this seems like spam.  It's the only opportunity to buy and experience some good BC wine from the comfort of your own home in the USA.   Greg T actually told me about it and I was surprised I was unaware.  He bought a couple and I think he's pleased thus far.  Anyway, I think the guy who runs the program is in California and he imp...

  • Last night my buddy Chester brought a German Pinot that a friend of his brought over from there.  It was quite good and I'm not a pinot fan.  Massive 14.5% alcohol though....weird.  Followed by a Painted Rock Syrah, which had a gorgeous nose, but I was disappointed that the rest was fleeting.  Some pepper on the finish, but seemed to disappear t...

  • This might be the quintessential (5th Element) supermarket wine.  I think I bought this at Total Wine, but I know I've also bought it at Trader Joe's, and I'll bet $1 that I can buy it at Albertson's or Von’s  Haggen's. Au Bon Climat and Jim Clendenen are very important entries in the history of California Central Coast wine.  This Chardonnay is...

  • Rioja remains one of the very last bastions of value when it comes to traditionally styled wines. However, it offers consumers considerably more than that: it affords consumers the chance to purchase aged wines that are ready to drink at prices that make them undeniable bargains. But today that is not what I want to talk about. I’m still going t... 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

  • Now in its third century, Charles Krug Winery is the quintessential example of a multigenerational winery that fuses tradition and innovation to craft wines of high acclaim. It is the oldest winery in the Napa Valley and has been owned and operated by the Peter Mondavi, Sr. family for four generations. The winery dates back to 1861, when it was ... Read More

  • After last week’s disappointing look at value priced Zinfandel you would be right to think that this week’s take on value priced Syrah, with a focus on Australian Shiraz, might produce equally horrifying results. After all if there was a poster child for big, oaky, goopy, and slightly sweet wines in the marketplace Aussie Shiraz certainly would ... Read More
