  • I really need to go to OT's non-wine related project page and post about the party.  Or maybe I should just do that here? Anyway, bought some 2010 Petrolo Il Torrione (4 bottles), a "Super Tuscan" whose big brother goes for more than I like to pay for wine; the Torrione gets similar scores and usually sells for $25-35, but JJBuckley had it for $...

  • Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event.  It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California.  Talk about getting out of the box.  For me this is tantamount to cross-dressing.  It started because Chester introduced me to the Kettle Valley "Hayman" reserve Pinot last year.  I really liked it, so when I found one (83 ca...

  • RBA, that shellfish platter looks amazing.  You would have had to roll me away after that. And one more thing - EMark, it's a screwcap!Yup, v v, that would have moved that wine way up on my list of favorites.  No corkscrew fiascoes (fiaschi?) with that one.The Mt. Eden designation really confused me on that wine, though.  I thought Mount Eden wa... Read More

  • You know it’s bad when Anheuser-Busch, the grandaddy of all beer companies, sounds the alarm. Morgan Stanley recently released a report detailing the changing preferences of America’s newest generation of quaffers, noting how their preference for wine is starting to infringe on long-held beer territory. “Millennials are increasingly moving away ...

  • The average trip to the bar isn’t so average anymore. This past week Bloomberg Business’ Ben Steverman ran a story about recent numbers which showed American drinkers are putting their cash in the coffers of premium drinks. “The cost of going out is going up. The culprit this time isn’t bars and restaurants that hike up drink prices,” Steverman ... Read More

  • Very interesting, Al.  Thanks for posting.  I have to agree, though, they are pretty proud of their wines, there.  Pretty much above Mark's budget.Although, if I was with you, yesterday, California red wines that I would have considered:Dragonette 2012 John Sebastiano Grenache for $75 (although, I'm 95% sure that the John Sebastiano Vineyard is ...

  • The Bacara up along the coast towards Goleta is a different animal. New, glitzy, courting the Hollywood crowd. Architecture looks fabricated rather than lived in. Not at all the same as the two or three I mentioned above, even though I don't like their current owners.Bacara's putting on a 'Santa Barbara food and wine weekend' next month. They're... Read More

  • Brewer-Clifton is well known in Santa Barbara County and has a reputation as being one of the best houses in our area.  This Pinot Noir from the Santa Rita Hills is the first BC wine I have tried and now I'm kicking myself for not trying it sooner. At $50-$60 a bottle it's pricey but wow what a nice pinot! Strong Cherry notes now getting some gr... Read More

  • After rehearsal tonight I opened a Brewer-Clifton Mt. Carmel Pinot Noir 2010 Santa Rita Hills vineyard and although I think it is a bit young it is very enjoyable. Brewer -Clifton is located in Lompoc, Ca. In what we call the Wine Ghetto. This is a very fruit forward mid range tannin Pinot that indicate to me that this could lay down five years.... Read More
