  • Regardless of the Barolo's style, you'll get more of its potential out of of a 15-year-old Bordeaux or CA cab than you will out of any serious four or five year old Nebbiolo from the Piedmont. Plus if you insist on drinking 3 to 4 year old wines, how will your palate have a chance to evolve? Decanting is not the be all and end all and certainly ... Read More

  • Have started to see the appeal in Champagne and other quality sparkling wine more and more lately. It's a festive drink with high drinkability and pleasure, provided you are drinking within the wine's general drinking window. I can remember my eldery godmother saying on one of our visits that she couldn't drink wine anymore due to her stomach is... Read More

  • Chateau de Lavernette Beaujolais Blanc les Vignes de la Roche 2014

    Snoothrank:

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More

But when the holiday wine planning finally begins, there’s a good chance you’ll be thinking about Oregon’s Willamette Valley.

  • I see Rare Wine Co. has some of their Chards from the 80's, seems worth a try.According to the current story/regime they are just starting with Cabernet as of 2009.
