  • In this case, a '79 Mondavi Chardonnay Reserve stole the show. Just the fact that it was still upright, despite passive cellaring (another from a previously discussed estate sale my neighbor scored on) was enough to write about. However, this surprisingly gave some real, almost sublime pleasure, despite being on the precipice of oxidation. It dr... Read More

  • No AL, I'm on the right, Vino is in the center and his friend "B" on the left.D, '13 Arnot Roberts Watson Chardonnay - Apple, pear and a dose of honey on the nose. Oily texture, apple and nectarine/white peach. Neutral oak but with more mid-palate heft than the Trout Gulch likely due to higher ripeness. Great balance and finesse. A real joy to d... Read More

  • Red blends. It’s a term that has been bandied about quite liberally over the past several years, commonly referring to 'kitchen sink' wines that are overtly fruity and sweet enough to need their own category in which to hide. But there is also a need for a broad, overarching category to cover red wine blends that are emerging around the world, b...
