90 points. This wine smells completely like a coffee shop. It’s got tons of fresh ground coffee beans, vanilla, chocolate, and caramel, and cinnamon aromas going on. There is also a core of cherry preserves, a little brown butter, and a toasty quality...
No vintage on the label. Price was around $14. I met one of the winemakers, who was at a wine shop in New York City promoting his product. He said he preferred blends, and did not understand why Americans didn't drink more of them, and I agreed. Th...

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Clerkenwell [www.theperfectcellar.com ] for £12. Saint-Bris is an AOC created in 2003 for white wines made from sauvignon blanc and/or sauvignon gris from around the village of Saint- Bris-la-Vineux...

In the East Bay, esp my neck of the woods (North Oakland/Berkeley), it's an embarrassment of riches in this as in so many other things. Andronico's, a formerly swanky market, is all but gone, and AG Ferrari is closing up its last shop after years of sinking into dismal faux Italian market-hood. But others have taken their place, albeit not in e... Read More
I shop locally at Super 1 foods. A decent decent market for a town of this size. Good meats (duh) and cheeses (double duh). Basically entry level wine with a smattering good mid-priced wines.When I get out of town Trig's is located in a well to do about 45 miles away and their selection of sea foods and high end offerings of meats, fish and th...

OK, what's your favorite market in your area for buying good meats, dairy, produce, etc. when you want to prepare a proper meal, likely accompanied by wine? Or just for everyday living? And what do they provide that you value so?Last couple of times I was through San Fran I realized Bi-Rite in the Mission would be mine there. Very much appreciat... Read More
Burgundy on a Budget. You get to write that column. I have to say, $50-60 is not exactly budget in my world, but I drink wine every night. If you bargain shop Chablis 1ers, which is pretty much all the Chardonnay I consume, you can get really good things for $25 or so. It does have to be opportunistic. Looking at my CT, looks like my Burgund... Read More
MY FIRST VISIT TO BERN'S STEAKHOUSE - Tampa (4/8/2017)Like any true wine geek when I was informed of a trade show in Tampa my first thought was "I'm making reservations at Bern's." I have friends who live in Tampa about 3 min from the restaurant so we hooked up for a fun three top. Rachel came recommended as a Somm so I requested her in advance.... Read More
I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in London's Kensington [www.nicolas.com ] Cheverny is an appellation created in 1993 [although viticulture here goes back centuries] for red,rose,white and sparkling wines [though most are white ] from 24 communes between the Loire and Cher rivers south of the town of Blois.Domaine de la Desoucherie is a ...

Riesling could be eclipsing Chardonnay as a go-to white wine grape for wine drinkers. My definition of wine drinkers here includes folks who don’t drink wine on a regular basis, but know a few grapes by name when ordering at a restaurant or picking up a bottle for a special occasion. This says a whole lot about Riesling. Many perfectly fine indi... Read More
Some good Semillon being made in Oz...I still have the YY's to buy, though interesting to note the 2010's may still be too young. Sounds like a fun gathering.After a dip in to South Carolina for lunch, Rock Hill, nothing to see there, my wife did manage to find a decent restaurant. Sometimes a good, semi sloppy chicken sandwich and herb fries i... Read More

Sandra and I needed to head down south to Charlottesville, Virginia this week to attend a Louis Black comic performance at the Paramont Theater. Louis wasn't playing closer to us in Washington DC like he usually does, so we figured why not go down there and make it a Bed & Breakfast trip with some wine tasting tossed in. And thus it was to be.... Read More
