I believe I've had only one perfect wine in these youthful years as a wine connoisseur which was my epiphany wine back in 2008. I have had a few wines come close but this Estate Pinot Noir has aged with a grace like very few others. The aroma of Gra...

Last week I began my summer time look at Zinfandel by focusing on Mendocino and lake counties, two regions that have limited presence in the Zin lovers mind. Today I'm taking a different tact and focusing instead on lodi, a veritable Zin lovers paradise.Why you ask?Well simply put it's a region that not only has a great climate for Zinfandel, wi...

I am not a fan of "blends". it seems an attempt at economics for a vintner who is trying to make the bad grapes stretch hoping to foist it on a connoisseur as an artistic achievement, of which my palate readily discerns, and on the undiscerning imbiber ;( Read More
I'm sitting on a 2010 St. Joseph from Ogier. Bunch of years ago I bought a lot of Ogiers CdR that was at least in part declassed CdP from that monstrously large (and oh-so-ripe) 2007 vintage. Even now I think that might be the best 2007 S. Rhone I've had and certainly a huge QPR at under $10 a bottle. But I think the reason my SS got this for... Read More

I am an American, with relatives in Sicily, town of Menfi, where the local communal cantina, Sette Soli, produces the Mandrarossa line of wines. I recently visited with my family for the first time in over a decade.
