No vintage on the label. Price was around $14. I met one of the winemakers, who was at a wine shop in New York City promoting his product. He said he preferred blends, and did not understand why Americans didn't drink more of them, and I agreed. Th...
Rarely do you encounter anyone as single minded and committed to his ‘one true path’ as Felice Coppo. And the intensity of his wine vividly reflects the intensity of the man. Made from old vine Barbera of Monferrato, which until recently remained one...

Wonderful interpretation of the classic Tuscan grape variety. Slightly sweet aroma of red fruits. Hints of cherry and raspberry amongst balanced acidity and tame, light tannins. Nicely paired with any tomato-based pasta dish. I had the 2004 vintage bac...

Unlike most mourvedre I've tasted this wine is fairly full-bodied in its mid-palate and finish (a plus) but its fruit is so pronounced it needs 45 minutes to breathe and reveal more complex fruit, forest floor, etc. Wine increasingly impressed me as i...

What the heck is Muscat Hamburg (Black Hamburgh) you ask? Well as a relative to Muscat Blanc (Moscato) it's a very aromatic and flavorful grape and one that deserves to be planted more often. If you've had his Cabs you might not think of Togni as opu...

Very citrus and floral on the nose. Scents of green apple and pear. Slight alcohol. Evident muscat effervescences with slight oak finish. Slightly tangy. Enjoyed this very different white. A moderate to high in terms of its refreshing factor. A light ...
Shiraz / Barossa Valley 91 pts. / $14-$21 This is the second time I have reviewed Tait's "Ball Buster". I raved about it last year when the 2005 was released, and I was looking forward to see if the wine quality would remain consistent. It has. ...

What are the secrets of a winemaker with over one hundred 90+ point wines across decades, appellations, and grapes? Perhaps it’s like any top chef: Add a pinch of this, a dash of that, and voila – you’ve got an award winning product. But decorated Murrieta’s Well winemaker Robbie Meyer doesn’t believe in recipes. Rather, he brings an intuitive c... Read More
Foxall and I are getting together for a Burgundy and Barolo dinner in Oakland this Saturday. We may have a seat or two available for anyone willing to make some spur of the moment travel plans. Read More
Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

Interestingly enough, was an offer from our friend Ian Cauble that falls right within this thread's discussion: Massimo Clerico, Nebbiolo, Lessona DOC Piedmont, Italy 2008 If there is one lesson that is common amongst all the great red wines of the world, it is that nothing can substitute for optimal bottle age. You can decant a young wine t... Read More
Planning to do some exploring into Italy's other wine varietals, those without the fanfare or popularity of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto, etc.First up is a Ruche with a few years bottle age by Montalbera, apparently a lighter wine that was traditionally brought out for special occassions...figure this should make for a nice aperti...

Time to turn the amp up to 11, at least for the wine hype machine, thanks to James Suckling on the 2015 vintage of Chateau Margaux:"The greatest Margaux ever made. More than perfection. Full body, firm and ultra-silky tannins. Black currant, mineral and floral character. It starts slowly and seems almost endless on the palate. Seamless. I want t... Read More
This book looks enticing but was looking for feedback from anyone who may have read it. Thanks Read More
It’s not malarkey. Weather conditions have a huge impact on a wine grape’s life, and vintage variations underscore the tie between winemaking and Mother Nature’s caprice. Just like your home cooked meal hinges on the character of its ingredients, your wine is dictated by the experience of its grapes. While climate, terroir, soil, and je ne sais ... Read More
I have a theory. Easy to pronounce and easy to remember names help drive wine sales. Hence, Prosecco, the Italian sparkler has taken our shelves by storm, Picpoul de Pinet, the easy drinking white from the south of France has seen sales sky rocket, and Pinot Grigio has simply rewritten the script. And now, I have an exclusive for Snoothers. The ... Read More
