  • I have found that when I walk into a wine store and find a huge display of one particular wine with all the hoopla of how good this wine is and how great of a deal it is, the wine usually winds up to be a lemon.I think that some wine merchants know when a certain wine just sucks and they push it to the forefront with a big display area and false...

  • I have just recently encountered the expression "black glass tasting."  It sounds like in a black glass tasting, the participants are using black glasses so that they cannot discern the color of the wine.  I went to Wikipedia and saw this sentence regarding the rationale behind black glass tasting, "A taster's judgment can be prejudiced by knowi...

    Wine Review: A Tale of Two Vintages Opus One 2007 & 2008I was so unbelievably honored when Opus Ones Winemaker, Michael Silacci invited me to dinner as a thank you for my Opus One 2007 wine review.

  • Fourth Growth Bordeaux, Grand Cru Classe en 1855, from Saint-Julien: Chateau Beychevelle, 1974. Bought 1981. When the spirit descended on the group and they spoke in tongues.

  • Robert Mondavi 1987 Reserve Cabernet $100, bought in February 1992He’s your largest customer…That line kept going around in circles in my head as the sommelier turned from our table and walked away.

  • Penascal Tempranillo Don't get me wrong; I have nothing against really good wine. I'll drink it whenever I can—especially if someone else is buying.However, most of the time, I'm on a mission to find something drinkable that I can afford.

  • I'll be in Italy in a little over a week, and i'm just starting to plan logistics for the few days i'll have over there.  I will be on a cruise, so the ports are Naples, Florence/Pisa, and Rome.  Would be most interested in seeing Tuscany here on my first trip to Italy, but i'm also concerned that from Florence/Pisa, I could be spending up to ar...

  • Rosé wines are always an early indication of a vintage’s promise. In the case of 2010, Spain enjoyed a fine growing season with sufficient rainfall and slightly cooler than average temperatures across much of the country, which allowed for the production of rather well-balanced wines as evidenced by this selection.Photo courtesy My Grape EscapeS...

  • The froth in the rare wine auction market shows no signs of abating as the BBC reports yet another record price for a single bottle has been attained. In this case, the wine in question, a single bottle of 1811 Chateau d'Yquem, has broken the record for most expensive bottle of white wine not bought at auction, though the wine is in fact a white...
