  • On a warm June day I was lost on the winding roads of Canon-Fronsac, an appellation on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. When I finally turn up more than an hour late at Château Moulin-Pey-Labrie, owner Grégoire Hubau makes a few witty digs about wine critics rarely finding their way to this little-known region. We head for his cellar, hung with amusing po... Read More

  • I taste a lot of wine, both for work and pleasure.  I would like to get better at it, but I don't know how.   While I am able to pick out varietals, and often, even regions, pretty accurately, I want more than that. I want to be able to pick out all of the wine's nuances, both on the nose and on the palate.  Often when I am tasting I find that o...

  • I'm really enjoying a Hermitage lately that is a steal at $17. Equinoxe or the official name: Domaine des Lises Crozes-Hermitage Équinoxe Maxime GraillotBlack as night with a big mouthfull of dark berries, pepper, spice and the acidity to cut through a USDA Prime NY Strip. Gone through 1/2 a case in the last few weeks and keep coming back for mo... Read More

  • 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...

  • Opus One Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley 2008

    Snoothrank:

    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. Well, honored is an understatement, I was so flipping excited, I could hardly contain myself. For me, being in the company of a winemaker of his ... Read More

  • 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. A powerful wine can help mere mortals approximate this experience without explicit divine intervention. In my case, the Epiphany involved spring, the last year of law schoo... Read More

  • 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. One friend dubbed this a quest for "the finest of cheap wines, or the cheapest of fine wines." This is not a... Read More
