  • Marilyn Merlot is hardly something I'm interested in (although I love merlot).  I saw someone in Victoria has a collection of 12 bottles they were selling on Craigslist for $200 (including the metal rack).  Only a few of the bottles were empty.  Obviously, it is questionable that they were stored properly and I'd bet not.  But I was wondering if...

  • Hi all!Hoping to wade into interesting wine talk (and food talk).  Me, I've been seriously enjoying and exploring wine for just over 20 years. On the red side, right now I'm partial to wines from Spain and the Rhone valley, but other loves are Oregon pinots, really good Italian wines (yes, it's endless, but that's the fun), and wanting to try mu...

  • OK, Greg, we know it's hard but you can come out of the closet (or cellar, if that's more appropriate in this context). You're among friends. Tell us about those secret pinot noir bottles that you really, really liked.  ;-) And outthere, great photo at top with the shadow glass raised. You should post that to a photography site...

  • Snapped this shot a couple months ago when we were racking some Pinot for Ancillary and Patiné. Check out the shadow, "Fill 'er up!" So what Pinot Noir have you enjoyed lately. What characteristics did you like about it? What food did you pair it with?Tonight I'm opening a 2011 Copain "Les Voisins" Pinot Noir for a number of reasons.I haven't ta... Read More

  • Good news! I've been invited to my first wine makers dinner! Needless to say, I'm excited about the opportunity. The dinner is going to be with Gilles Nicault from Long Shadows next week.Naturally I'll be doing my homework in advance to learn what I can and think about good questions I'd like to ask. I know that Long Shadows has been discussed h... Read More

  • Okay, opened mine.  We had lamb chops on Xmas eve and I brought the '10 Ogier St. Joseph and an '09 Maclaren Judge Family Syrah.  The Maclaren was rounder, easier to drink at first, but still had a little St. Jo tartness.  The Ogier was tarter and tighter at first, but by the end of the night, I was reaching for it.  Lots of lightly meaty notes-...

  • NG - just wanted to thank you for the L'Autre, it looks awesome and right in my current sweet spot of Rhone blends!  You said it will cellar for a good 10 years but I've got a feeling that I'll be posting my tasting notes in the next week or so.  I've been lucky to have been able to visit quite a few CA AVA's but not the Sierra Foothills, looks ...

  • Vin0Vin0,Your logic was spot on in guessing Foxall- I did buy the L'Autre from the Wine Mine.  I decided to seek out Dave Sharp's expertise knowledge with wine to find a nice CA Rhone blend.  I had ruled out a French Rhone due to the fact that I am pretty inexperienced with French Rhones.   I researched wines that you liked, and saw Tablas at th...

  • My Secret Santa sent me a bottle of 2012 Failla Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.  I have no clue as to who sent this, as it was shipped via KLWINES, so it could've come from anywhere.   I haven't tasted Failla before, so I am VERY looking forward to trying this wine!  With little clues to go on, I will take a guess, based on:  1.  It was shipped via a l...

  • My SS did his/her research and saw that I'm a big fan of Rhone style wines, especially Tablas Creek.I was given:2008 Domaine de la Terre Rouge L'Autre, Sierra FoothillsHere are the specs from their web site:L’Autre means “the other one”.
