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...

not a bad wine if you are not a connoisseur: this wine was vatted in steel barrels? from where I sit, a french wine should be spoiling in oak and that was exactly was was missing from this wine. It tasted too much like a "modern" wine. time in the oak would have given it the class that it needed. Read More
White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a ... ... and high end bottles for the connoisseur. One of my personal favorites is actually from the Mclaren Vale in Southern Australia. Eclipse by Noon is a Grenache-shiraz-graciano blend that is big, bold, fruity perfection- an ideal example of the Grenache grape’s f... Read More

Alright, for all those who have been bad mouthing Merlot over the past few years, please stand up. Now all of you need to walk over to the far corner of the room and wait. Thank you. I need to tell you that your dislike of Merlot is unfounded and I am about to prove that Merlot is the number one outstanding citizen of the wine community. I mean,... Read More
Elite Daily reporter Kaylin Pound is a self-professed wine expert. But while one's palate is an indispensable part of one's ability to decipher the forward flavors, subtle hints and dazzling dashes weaved within the profile of a wine, that palate is of no help when it comes to pronouncing the names of the quaffers said drinkers so eloquently de...

Had a conversation some time ago with GregT about teas. I'm as much a connoisseur of them and coffee as I am about wine, and these days drink a lot more of them than of wine.Let's be frank. Starbuck's and Tully's blow. Not so much 25+ years ago as now. They're the McDonald's of coffee these days. Peet's is a little better, but that's all. One th... Read More
Not much wine talk this weekend, so sharing a few thoughts on the subject.A friend of mine recently said "there's only two days in a year I don't drink coffee", and I've also noticed that I'm pretty much drinking a cup every morning, sometimes iced tea with lunch.

Wonder if they use the native yeast? In that dry, semi-high altitude environment, not a lot of yeast thrives. Shipping grapes across the desert isn't really hospitable for the ... Read More
Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... Read More
