  • 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. For a little while, I even got in to ordering a french press while out for breakfa... Read More

  • Hmmm. Shipping the grapes across a desert could explain the sweetness:  They are passarille as the French say, or dried.  Higher sugar, possibly arrested fermentation.  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 ...

  • 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

  • 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...

  • We’ve been doing it all wrong. That’s not surprising now is it? Well, what may be surprising is that researchers at Reykjavík’s School of oenology have discovered why the Nordic countries enjoy wine so much. They simply are better at it! While I’m sure the powers that be would love to find their genetics were responsible for such an advantage, t... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    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
