  • Nothing goes with all foods. Maybe Grenache/Syrah. Chenin Blanc goes well with food, The label will have the denotation Sec or Demi-Sec in the wine name.

  • Had me there for a sec OT. Actually you too NG, was looking forward to your thoughts on that Espirit. I've been holding a mag of the '08 for a while...one of those wines I'd probably never buy again and will need to fine a reason for opening. Read More

  • A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC.  ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More
