  • D, not everything winds up on the internet, at least not via the usual mechanisms.  Being local can help.  Shiners, closeout specialists in the neighborhood, calls from friends, there's stuff that comes in small quantities with "secret" backstory even now.Okay, here are a couple that you won't find east of Reno (I think I used that before, and w...

  • I've been really bad about posting updates on the house. Structurally, we are finished, and all the walls are painted and floors finished. We have stairs, about to have our big Tansu thing in the middle of them, And we've got a dining room that seats twenty pretty easily.  Maybe more.  (Didn't OT say all that garden building was making him lose ...

  • 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...

Our very best barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon (43%), Merlot (31%), Petit Verdot (12%), Cabernet Franc (9%), and Malbec (5%) were aged separately in new French oak for 13 months and then blended into French puncheons for another year.

  • Okay, I'm back from Mexico.  JD guessed right.  It's a 2008 Lisini BdM.  And it was on sale, because I love to be fruga, but it was still above our floor.  Lisini is traditional, in the $75-90 range, usually. Some of the recent vintages of really good BdM are on sale because everyone is turning to the hyped 2010s. I wanted to "send" something he... Read More

  • Doubtful Fox gave you that Betz DV, he gave me the Brunello and needs the Betz for his own cellar.Best person for that job I'd think would be GregT, so that would put Lucha on the Cadence.

  • Well, reveal day is upon us. Why don't I mosey on over to the cellar and grab my gift. From the looks of the box it is likely a single bottle of wine. 750ml in size. From the return address on the shipping label I already know who sent it. But I won't reveal that. I'll let you guys guess based on what's inside. With that in mind I am going to ta... Read More
