  • This might be a stretch, but when you're retired, almost everything goes.  I think it would be grand for folks to come up with an above average wine for Wednesdays, which some of us - those still working for a living - call 'hump day'.  Something beyond an everyday Weekday Wine, yet still below the threshold of a truly Weekend Wine.  Since tomor...

  • Did some work on my cellar in the last week; as all my bottles got dusty, I cleaned them all and used the occation to do an inventory count... what a bummer, of 305 bottles I had in the books I found 250... no idea where most of the 55 missing bottles did go to, a few I can remember, others I would like to remember. Good thing is that most of th... Read More

  • Hi I don't know much about wine and am looking to purchase wine from 1964 for a special gift.  I looked at various reputable sites but it is impossible to tell what could be good for the value. How is Castrijo Gran Reserva 1964?  It sounded good and was decently priced, found while researching online, from a reputable wine store, but having not ... Read More

  • A couple of news items I was pondering today.First, Robert Parker came out with his ratings for the 2009 Bordeaux vintage.

  • So ive only been in the wine world a short time and i keep hearing people talking about opening a aged wine, or letting a wine age, or how the older the wine the better it is. I have also heard about wine that goes bad if it sits to long or becomes skunked. Well, i guess my question is how do you know how long to let a wine age or which wines yo... Read More

  • I am about to open a Wine Store and I am at that point where almost all of the Predictable wines have been ordered.  Some of these wines are very good, nothing wrong with being on every other wine store.  However, I would love to be able to offer to my clients wines that are perhaps made on smaller quantities but of very good quality and both, a...

  • Living in Sonoma County my cellar is pretty Cali-Centric. I mean in an earthquake it just may break off and fall into the Pacific Ocean. So tonight I'm going with something completely different. I picked up an El Nido Clio 2008 that I'm giving a test drive to see if I want more. Anything other than California wine or Rhones and I am treading on ... Read More
