  • That sounds like a very fun evening, OT.  OK, two fun evenings.Tonight I am revisiting one that I had a few months ago.Previously, I had ragged on some bitterness in this wine.  However, it is so reasonably priced I went back and tried it again.  That was pretty good.  So, it was so cheap I tried it again.  That was pretty good, too.  So, here i...

  • Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

  • RCKR, thought you might be referencing the lowish relative humidity with your post. GDP has the opposite problem where he is. You can imagine issues in CA.Do chase down those threads. Were two or three of them where I got into issues with several mechanisms and brands for wine fridges. Really  don't want to regurgitate it all here, but not merel... Read More

  • I have had a lot of fun, the last few days thinking about this.  The technical in me strives for precision.  However, precision is not required to facilitate communication--good enough is good enough.I have, in fact, used the words "more complete."  I agree that it is a lot easier to use than "less incomplete."I don't think I've ever said that s...

  • Time to turn the amp up to 11, at least for the wine hype machine, thanks to James Suckling on the 2015 vintage of Chateau Margaux:"The greatest Margaux ever made. More than perfection. Full body, firm and ultra-silky tannins. Black currant, mineral and floral character. It starts slowly and seems almost endless on the palate. Seamless. I want t... Read More

  • Rivers Marie is its own thing.The OP was about Cab and Cabs are tough but if you get away from Napa, and even better, if you get away from Cab, there are a lot of wines that taste great at year three and that are better 10 years on.If you look beyond Cab, look to Spain and Italy and depending on how adventurous you are, maybe Greece and other pl...

  • It’s summer. The weather is warm and if you are like me, your thoughts are turning to more white wines rather than the hearty reds of winter. There is one style which is making a statement this season however and that is Rosé. It’s a beautiful mix of the lightness of a white wine with a bit of classy structure hinting of its origins as red wine ... Read More

  • Obsidian Ridge "Estate Grown" Red Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


    One of the few vineyards in the world with a vein of Obsidian running through - thus the name and minerality that shows rather uncharacteristically large in the wine. Add to the black berry and damson plum fruit, chocolate, herbal notes, spice (pepper) a little bit of chewy tannins and good acidity, a medium length aftertaste - this could have l... Read More
