  • 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

  • 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

Interesting in a replusive way... here is a review from Best Wines online that I found to be anything but as this describes'The 2012 Fly By Napa Valley Sauvignon B... Read More

  • Shiraz, or should I say Syrah? Either way, you have one of the world’s truly noble grapes, yet one that tends to cause a bit of confusion. The two names don’t help of course, or the fact that, in theory, they represent two different styles of wine. One the one hand you have Syrah, the name in French that represents the style of wine produced thr... Read More

  • Here’s an article that had a slim chance of being written. Pull together a case of wine from a vintage that is deemed passable at best and drink them at 33 years of age. I mean what the hell do you expect to find?How about:People, even the experts don’t know much.What is written about older vintages is a pile of steaming supposition.We are just ... Read More

  • On Tuesday I wrote with great pleasure about a group of Cabernets that were right about $25 a bottle, some less. They represented much of what I look for in Cabernet, and at an affordable price. Today I turn my sights to wines that promise much more. At least they are priced in such a way as to promise much more, not that they always deliver.  T... Read More

  • Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More

  • I came to California with my parents in 1959 and started tasting wine through out when wineries were in their infancy. I watched the Valley go from a diversified agricultural community to a mono culture with the inherent problems that entails. I spent almost 30 years in the wine industry, making, growing, crushing, selling both whole sate & reta...

  • With the holidays fast approaching, this is the time of the year when most of us begin to look for wines that are a cut above our average, wines that deliver something special yet hopefully do not break the bank while doing so. There are many possible routes to take, but Rioja Reserva offers a unique opportunity to bring that something special t... Read More
