The 2008 vintage has reached it's "expiration date". I got this for 75% off at a local liquor store since it expired about a month ago, which means I paid a mere $6 for 4 bottles worth of wine. I was unaware that box wines actually had expiration dat...

MY FIRST VISIT TO BERN'S STEAKHOUSE - Tampa (4/8/2017)Like any true wine geek when I was informed of a trade show in Tampa my first thought was "I'm making reservations at Bern's." I have friends who live in Tampa about 3 min from the restaurant so we hooked up for a fun three top. Rachel came recommended as a Somm so I requested her in advance.... Read More
Have you discovered the joys of sipping your rum neat, or are you only mixing it into cocktails? Both are certainly delicious ways to enjoy rum. However if you’re not yet familiar with expressions that can be sipped much like one would scotch you’re missing out. I recently returned from spending some time in Venezuela visiting Diplomático, one o... Read More
Which Cab Sav's are REALLY good right of the bat (upon release from the winery) and even better after 5 years? Read More
Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

Good timing, Emark, as I will be getting a half case of Ed Sbragia's Gino's Vineyard Zin this week. Ed made one of my favorite wines at Project Zin, which I wrote up a few years ago. Tops in the Zin and PS world by me. Really nice guy, too. Stayed in a room named for his family at the Dry Creek Inn last year, and laughed at the connection.Ok... Read More
I really enjoy this wine. It is not as sweet at some Riesling Spatlese wines. I have found this wine (vintage year 2013) in Delaware and Virginia but it does sell out fast. Have not been able to find it in New Jersey which is where I live. Still looking for a liquor store that carries it. Read More
James Island, S.C., residents Bill and Frances Porcher are a married pair of octogenarians with a pretty good problem on their hands: they don’t know the provenance of the grapes they’re growing, but Bill continues to make his wine for Charleston’s quaffers to drink. “Porcher has consulted a few scientists on the question of his grape’s provenan...

Had the pleasure to taste with GregT in San Diego yesterday evening. I had the idea to pair up Greg and a friend from the Netherlands who was in San Diego for a convention, due to their interest in Tokaj, and it seemed to work well, everyone having a good time.Lessons Learned: Harslevelu is good stuff, and probably my new favorite white wine gra...

This past month the Indian Wine Academy published a brief history of the country's modern wine industry, one that encompasses a mere 15 years. Writer Subhash Arora penned the story for India's food and wine magazine UpperCrust. His history concluded with a synopsis of the country's wine industry. “The wine drinking culture is on the increase, ... Read More
I am a life long wine enthusiast with a preference for Bordeaux, particularly if consumed at maturity. I do enjoy wines from other parts of the world but find I like the ones that have a claret style best. I dislike CA/domestic fruit bombs that seem so prevalent and popular in the U S.My bias toward Bordeaux was probably set when a friend of mi... Read More
