  • I'm concluding our two week look at Pinot Noir for Snooth's Global Tasting Initiative with a round up of my favorite wines. You might be surprised that I'm collecting a list of previously reviewed wines, but I need to let you in on a little secret: even wines that get great reviews and scores may not be to my or your liking!Yes, it's true.

This wine is puckery dry (tannin) and while I normally long for fruit I cannot detect "sweetness" that often accompanies fruit--or from alcohol. I think this ... Read More

  • Living in Sonoma County my cellar is pretty Cali-Centric. I mean in an earthquake it just may break off and fall into the Pacific Ocean. So tonight I'm going with something completely different. I picked up an El Nido Clio 2008 that I'm giving a test drive to see if I want more. Anything other than California wine or Rhones and I am treading on ... Read More
