  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • It always seemed odd to us that in Piemonte, the land of Barolo, the King of Wines and the Wine of Kings, we would always find a bottle of Barbera in front of us on the table. The answer was and is simple: Barbera is bountiful, versatile, delicious and moderate in price. The Piemontesi drink more reds than whites and almost 50% of the reds that ... Read More

  • I had a strange experience yesterday and am hoping someone might have some insight.I have been enjoying and learning about wine for well over a decade now (seriously so) and have worked in the industry for a bit.  Numerous people have commented on the sharpness of my palate for wine and I have always had a pretty keen set of tasters.This occurre...

  • Assuming the original measurements were reasonably accurate to begin with.  More than (far more than) one winemaker has told me that the ABV on his bottles is a fair bit off.  First, the law allows some imprecision.  And no one really figures Tax and Trade is really going to go nuts measuring it.  Lots of wineries use the same label (except the ...

  • There was a conversation on WB started on this topic...I had always assumed alcohol dissipated over time slowly. I believe Mike Officer posted a range, referencing one of the 1st growth chateau in Bordeaux, of 0.3% - 0.8% every 20 years. That number sounded reasonable to me, but I'm not aware of the facts surrounding this.I kind of figure old wi... Read More

  • It’s urban legend that top wine pros can blindly identify a wide array of wines. Blindly naming a wine’s provenance, vintage, and vineyard is the most humbling exercise in the wine world. But there are some things you can do to get closer to the correct answer. This is a rich, endless topic. For right now, we’ll focus on the identification of un... Read More

  • Benvenuto Brunello, the annual vintage preview tasting sponsored by the Consorzio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino just passed through New York City, leaving behind a lasting impression both of the quality of the wines on offer, as well as the resounding success this tasting continues to enjoy. Building on previous iterations, this year's Benvenu... Read More

  • After much agony and discernment, I have chosen the official wine for my Super Bowl party this year. Over the 9 years I've hosted this event, it is probably the least exotic selection, not to mention least expensive.  Given the fact chili is the main dish (oh please, don't turn your nose. After all, we're American pigskin fans, not Bolsheviks), ... Read More

  • No mystery I love Syrah and got turned onto it some years ago by a N.
