  • 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...

  • 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

  • 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

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • Fly By Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc 2012


    Tasting Room Selection -Never had anything quite like it except for the wine that tasted and smelled like propane. This one is a huge asphalt & tar nose and then tasted as it smelled. 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

    Wine review by puhnner

  • 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
