  • Thanks for getting this started Foxall.I received a 2011 Robert Ramsey Le Mien from Yakima WA. It's a S Rhone style blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Cinsault. Sounds delicious. Not too hard to figure out who sent this one, besides the fact that I knew who it was before he sent it. I mean someone had to know who all the players were, ri... Read More

  • Jen, I got this reply from an acquaintance in Edmonton."A large number of California wines are exported to Alberta, so there is probably an excellent chance that the wine you plan to ship there is already in the market. If it is currently available there then the exercise should be relatively simple. Contact either Wade Brintnell at The Wine Cel... Read More

  • vinOvinO, your mileage may vary but I did both last year. I sent a bottle from my cellar to my recipient and when I heard about shipping issues preventing Eric Guido from getting his gift I ordered a bottle from a wine shop in his neighborhood and had it held will call for him.For my assigned recipient I wanted to share something from my cellar ...

  • So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot.  Here's my opening proposal:  We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly.  This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend...

  • I wrote yesterday about the 2009 vintage in Barolo and today I begin reporting on the wines tasted. with over 30 winery visits o the region last month there's a lot of wine to report on. I've included my notes below, broken down by visit in roughly chronological order. As you can see not everyone was able to present the 2009 Barolo for each of t... Read More

  • Like Zinfandel, Petite Sirah is primarily a California wine: the Golden State’s long, sunny growing seasons are necessary to ripen Petite Sirah’s substantial tannins and reveal its rich blackberry flavors. The wine’s structure, fruit and inky color make it an excellent blending partner for Zinfandel, red Rhône varieties and even Cabernet Sauvign... Read More

  • One of the enemies of the wine lover is time. The greatest wines in the world are meant to be aged, to be given the time to allow oxygen, and who knows what else, to work their magic on young wine. The edges smooth out, the texture turns silky, flavors gain nuance, depth and complexity. It's magic in the bottle, though nobody can fully explain w... Read More

  • I recently had the very good fortune to spend several hours with Paul Draper during a visit to Ridge Vineyards Monte Bello property. While Ridge is well known today, and their Monte Bello is arguably one of California’s greatest Cabernet-based wines, the property is far from more acclaimed wine regions, and was one of a very small number of wine...

  • Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More
