The French Cellar
Really I was joking when I told my girlfriend Susie the other night that I could get at least a hundred bucks for this wine on eBay. She looked at me wryly, "really?" and pop went the cork. I was cooking up some of the Halibut that Susie had caught las...

Purezza is one of the prestigious red wines from the A Solatio winemaker in Tuscany. The name comes directly from the vinification method in the "purity" of Sangiovese grapes , produced in the extent of 50/70 quintals per hectare , which ensure high fi...

Enjoyed this on 10 March, 2012. In cellar for 5 years. Raspberry and oaky vanilla on the nose. Taste develops into a real fruit bomb with red berries, leather and some sweetness to it (reminding of some amarones). A very lively wine despite its age. T...

Tried this wine recently and went back to buy a case. It was on sale at World Market (Cost Plus) for $6.99/bottle. My girlfriend and I are big Rhone wine fans, and this wine really hits the spot. Good finish. While lacking in terroir (it's not French ...

Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

If I had a Twitter account, I'd probably remind all my friends to drink French today. (Funny how I don't really celebrate Italian independence day, or Republic Day, or the anniversary of the unification of Italy, which unluckily for it falls on March 17.) Not trying to get too political, so let's just say that France certainly has a big impact... Read More
Interestingly enough, was an offer from our friend Ian Cauble that falls right within this thread's discussion: Massimo Clerico, Nebbiolo, Lessona DOC Piedmont, Italy 2008 If there is one lesson that is common amongst all the great red wines of the world, it is that nothing can substitute for optimal bottle age. You can decant a young wine t... Read More
Planning to do some exploring into Italy's other wine varietals, those without the fanfare or popularity of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto, etc.First up is a Ruche with a few years bottle age by Montalbera, apparently a lighter wine that was traditionally brought out for special occassions...figure this should make for a nice aperti...

Had the good fortune to attend a Masters of Wine, Syrah Panel Tasting on Monday. I believe it was the last spot available for the seated tasting, consisting of 23 Syrah's from the main Syrah producing regions of the world. The tasting was held at the upstairs restaurant of the Wine House (famous retail shop and education facility) off of Cotner ... Read More

A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak. I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines... Read More

Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...
