  • 1995. Little did we know what an inflection point this would be for Piedmont. Looking back, it’s easy to forget the fanfare that greeted the vintage, mostly because nobody was really paying attention to the wines. That is not entirely true of course, but Barolo and Barbaresco were still a mystery to the vast majority of the wine buying public at... Read More

  • When talk turns to the great California Cabernet producers of the 1980s and 1990s, the topic of conversation invariably turns to Napa Valley, with a geek genuflection to the Santa Crux Mountains. Generally overlooked and sometimes intentionally slighted are the wines of Sonoma County, but within the folds and peaks of Sonoma’s valleys lie some r... Read More

  • This past Wednesday we were lucky to have hosted a fine tasting of Juslyn’s Estate Cabernet Sauvignon with Managing Partner and General Manager Stephanie DeMasi. With such a small business, production is hovering around 1300 cases total and the estate vineyard is a mere eight acres, it’s easy for a GM to know the ins and outs of the operation, a... Read More

  • "-- The 2007 ----- is 100% Tinto Fino aged for 24 months in French and American barriques. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it emits a super-fragrant bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense and opulent on the palate, this loaded effort is succulent, pure, and exceptionally lengthy. It will evolv... Read More

  • Spottswoode. It’s a name, particularly when paired with Cabernet Sauvignon, that tends to elicit a uniformly impressed reaction from wine lovers across a broad spectrum of palate preferences. "Why is that?" one is tempted to ask. Are the wines simply that appealing? Is there something inherently there that makes these true Napa classics? Or is t... Read More

  • Last year I was fortunate to attend a seminar here in New York City entitled, “The Multiple Personalities of Oregon Pinot Noir.” It was in part responsible for my essay on vintage variation, which I think is worth a read. The core of the day’s event consisted of a series of three blind tastings that were to highlight the various elements that co... Read More

  • I've just offered to help some friends select wines for their upcoming wedding, and thought i'd drop in to see if you all had any fresh suggestions.  The price range/bottle is $10-$20, and it will be for at least two types of red wine. Right off the bat, I'm pretty sure I can easily find a good Malbec blend from Argentina that fits the criteria....

  • In the age of mobile phones, CNN and foursquare, the idea of lost tribes and civilizations is something that even the most ardent of National Geographic readers would have trouble believing. Watch Discovery Channel and you’ll see that western civilization has pretty much explored every inch of the earth and the idea of something so pure and ... Read More

  • Well, to start with, it makes life exciting for both producers, sometimes dangerously so, as well as consumers. One of the huge fallacies of the 100-point system, for example (though any rating system is equally incapable of quantifying a vintage), is that a vintage is something that is ratable using an uninformative absolute scale.Vintages cert...

  • Given NG's Californian Cab thread had morphed into Sparkling, I thought maybe that was a good time to take the interesting stuff coming through into its own thread.So I will start with the following sort of recapChampagne is a bit like Burgundy in that it is clearly leading the world in its reputation even in the places where local equivalents a...
