or Spam begets Spam, eh Greg?I think I'll start a "For the Love of Spam" website and blog.I considered posting a link to an article from Wine Align (Canadian Wine site) that talks about this years' weather and harvest in BC and that it could be as problematic as a cold, wet vintage. Ah what the heck, I will anyway. I cut and pasted the article... Read More
Unless you bought them with aging potential in mind, a fair few of your 2013 pink and white wines won’t be drinkable by next spring. Guzzle down the last of those quick-to-turn bottles, cellar a few others, and ready yourself for the onset of fall wines. Even if you do not live in a starkly transitional climate, this a great time to think about ... Read More

There were three of us, or actually 2 1/2 since my wife didn't drink much and doesn't like whites. The burgers were going to be 50/50 bacon/beef, which opened a world of possibilities so we decided to go all-American. Halcón Vineyards Prado to start, a 50.50 Marsanne/Rousanne blend that would have gone really well with the mushroo... Read More
Good chardonnay. Haven't visited them much this decade, and have to admit after seeing the sticker price I am a bit shocked. Everything being relative, though, I'm sure we could find some Burgundies compared to which this is a bargain.From BPWine: One of the worlds finest Chardonnays from any country....a MUST for serious collectors and Chardon...

D, I can't usually bring myself to buy a case of anything unless I can break it up and resell some. And my "buyers" can't be relied on to buy wines over $30. Can't blame them, since I've been introducing them to great stuff at that price and under. Drinking the same vintage of the same wine 12 times isn't something I do. Too many things to ex... Read More
