Today is the autumnal equinox, half day, half night and the first official day of Fall, so what better way to celebrate fall than to go back to school! In this case we'll be going back to school at one of my absolute favorite wineries of all time, L'E...
Today, I am enjoying my grill along with a bottle of 2009 Chateau de la Taille Bordeaux, another bottle from that super vintage (at least as it's been billed) from France. Now don't get me wrong, the experts who tasted from barrels are probably righ...

Bordeaux Blend / 2005 Napa / $25-$35 91 points I have been a fan of Worthy since the first release in 2001. It is a "second label" of the super premium "Axios" brand owned by Maryland wine wholesaler <a href="http://axioswine.com">Gus Kalaris</a>....

I've always been interested in wine and wished to enjoy its taste but never found any that I liked. To me alcohol always leaves a bad taste and a burn which prevents me from enjoying them. Even dessert wines make me wince.Is there a wine that may open my eyes to the world of wine for a beginner like me? Something to help me get used to the taste... Read More
I suppose yet again another post by someone who has stumbled upon a bottle of fine wine that surpasses their abilities to appreciate and wishes to know how best to dispose of it....

Wanting to refresh my memory on certain French vintages in the Rhône Valley I came across (as I often do) the Robert Parker Vintage Chart. Parker includes vintages from 1970 through 2010 on his website and scores them on the usual 100 point scale. He claims that scores of 70-79 are "average" while those of 80-89 are "above average to excellent... Read More
Gambero Rosso, Italys most important wine publication, considers Allegrini as a Star winery, a winery that has won at least ten "Tre Bicchieri" awards. This rare honor is given to a select few of Italy's top producers and recognizes them for consistently producing outstanding wines across many vintages. The Allegrini Amarone della Valpolicella C...

Today, I am enjoying my grill along with a bottle of 2009 Chateau de la Taille Bordeaux, another bottle from that super vintage (at least as it's been billed) from France.Now don't get me wrong, the experts who tasted from barrels are probably right on, but given that for us plebians it takes at least 4 or 5 years for a great or even mediocre Bo...

Today is the autumnal equinox, half day, half night and the first official day of Fall, so what better way to celebrate fall than to go back to school! In this case we'll be going back to school at one of my absolute favorite wineries of all time, L'Ecole No. 41 in Lowden, Wash. So to celebrate this banner day, I am enjoying a bottle of the 200...
