  • A thread on another category inspired me to look this one up and write it out, because it's from Ben Franklin.  Who was pretty smart, and woulda been a Snoother had he lived to these days of the internet.  Well before Mr. T. Jefferson went to Paris, Franklin already had a great collection of wine, over a thousand bottles (the biggest percentage ... Read More

  • Not, I repeat not, a thread about whether the 2009 Bordeaux is great, but more about whether you trust the reviews. After the 2009 en primeur week, the opinion is unsurprisingly about a brilliant "vintage of the decade". I think this is the 3rd in the last 10 years n'est-ce-pas? So do we need to review how we review the en primeur? Do you trust ... Read More

  • I'm looking at some cellar upgrades and want some input on a couple of things.  My general understanding is that ideal conditions are 55 degrees F and humidity of 60-65%.1.  Do certain wines benefit from having a different storage temperature?  If so, which ones and what is considered ideal?2.  How low can the humidity get before impacting the c...

  • Here's an interesting queston to ponder,How can one teach themselves the various flavors wines give off to the palate?The other day, I opened a Merlot, the Winery said it has tastes of Blackberry, plum and smoked meat.I drank, savored, thought and I tasted the Blackberry, I think I tasted the plum but was I swayed by the label description?  Dunn...

  • After a day of drinking Giacosa (admittedly, that night preceded this, but I have yet to write up those notes), what could be better than a follow up tasting of some excellent 1985 Barolo? I remember the hoopla when these wines were released. It was called the best vintage ever, and everyone was praising the quality of the fruit before the fir... Read More

  • 2005 Barolo has the grave misfortune of living between two highly-regarded vintages, so that means you shouldn’t be buying these wines, right? Well, hold on there just a second.  On the first hand, vintage assessments never really tell the whole story, and on the second, well, these wines might just end up getting dumped at a discount so they mi...

  • I'd appreciate any thoughts on a good pairing for a Tokali Aszu (5 putts) pairing for a tasting. I'm new here so thanks in advance for any thoughts. Read More

  • Ok, so I just polished off a young Rioja called Vega Ariana (see my tasting notes). It was only a Joven (i.e. not even a Crianza) so it's a young pup without the benefit of oak. To be honest, it was palatable and the fruit was refreshing, but in the end it didn't really float my boat.So this got me thinking - can Rioja do well without the strong... Read More
