Stephen, you should start thinking in terms of sourcing from the US directly. I put together a curated list of reliable online vendors which (almost all) ship overseas. I'll dig it up and post the link later. For now, here's a current offering from one purveyor on the list (Sea Smoke is a cult wine but I view it as one of the weakest in this lis... Read More
Despite my somewhat feeble attempts trying to find US wine in Australia is frustratingSo I think I would like to build a list of high Quality but not astronomic priced wines my American Snooth Colleagues would suggest I look out forBare in mind that if it is from a very small niche producer I would need to know how I can source it in AustraliaSo...

No doubt when Spanish conquistador Pedro Gutierrez de Valdivia founded the city of Santiago in 1541, he was not thinking of viticulture. However, today the Maipo and Colchagua Valleys produce some of the finest Bordeaux influenced wines in the world. Chile gained its independence from Spain in the early 1800’s, by mid-century the Chilean economy... Read More

Makes sense in that context re: Brewer Clifton. Sta Rita Hills is home to some surprisingly good Chardonnay (Liquid Farm opened my eyes to that a few years ago). Read More
Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year. With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year. And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win... Read More
Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

Every wine producing country has strengths and weaknesses, some more than others. Chile has many high points that make it a go-to country when looking for outstanding wine. The number of unique regions that feature diverse soil types and microclimates is simply astounding. Chile has three thousand miles of coastline north to south as well as mou... Read More
I typically shy away from Pinot Noir, preferring more full bodied, dark & dense varieties.But I have had a couple Pinot's that knocked my socks off. In each case, these were made New World style with very concentrated extraction resulting in a fruity palette and dense mouth feel. But I don't recall what wines/vintages were like this.Would love t... Read More
Last night we drank a Lafond Syrah SRH from (duh!) the Santa Rita HIlls. A colleague brought it back from Santa Barbara, where the winery has a tasting room; she does that for me whenever she's down there because she's a great colleague and knows I like the wine. She also got two bottles of Oregon PN in appreciation. This is a seriously good ... Read More
