What more can be said about this Estate that has not already been written... "The ’99 Montecalvi is rather different in its sensory characteristics from the two preceding vintages, although it nearly repeated the Three Glasses exploit of the ’98. Th...

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
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
Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More
Everyone wants a good deal. It doesn’t matter what you’re buying, we all like to save a buck. In the wine world there are several ways to save money and get a good bottle of wine. One in particular is to shop in categories that aren’t as popular, well known or highly scored as some others. There are a multitude of reasons a particular category m... Read More
Mark, looks like you're on a nice roll with the big reds! Hoping to join you and Sandra in the pensioners ranks in about a year and a half from now.Meanwhile wine-wise we're going in the other direction tonight with this recent white arrival.Excellent Sta. Rita Hills chardonnay from Liquid Farm! There's some really nice creamy lemon pith on the... Read More
OK, Mrs. EMark can't believe that it's been two years already. She had a great time.My recollection, because, believe it or not, the hard copy notes are not to be found, is that my favorite wine that evening was the Patz & Hall Hyde Vineyard. I'm always the outlier. Everybody else seemed to go ga-ga over the OR Pinot that LingProf brought. T... Read More
Or was it yesterday? This just came up as a memory on my facebook feed today. A great Snooth memory. On the far left with white/grey/dark beard is Greg dal Piaz, Foxall to his right, EMark to Fox's right, myself, and James Hall from Patz & Hall. Fox's wife is the lady sort of facing the camera, while the rest you can't see but it's Anne Moses? o... Read More
