  • I've taken the liberty of posting a portion of Kermit Lynch's most recent newsletter. It's a piece Jim Harrison wrote for them nearly a decade ago on wine's significance in his life, and there are several specific examples of food and wine matching.Harrison died recently and I mourned him as another of the greats who have passed this decade. Lot... Read More

  • Today I spent 7.5 hours to get the walls painted and I am basically just left with a few hours of touch-up to complete our music room painting job.  So far I've spent 34 hours in this room, and it's taken about a month because I lost a week dealing with that blizzard back in mid-January that totally sapped my strength from all the snow shoveling...

  • Great story, JD!VV, here's how it usually works, as people who have been over have observed:  I keep about 24-36 bottles of daily drinkers in a wine tower I bought at World Market a bunch of years ago.  It was built for 24 bottles but I tricked it out for another dozen, including fatter bottles. That's about a month's supply of mostly $10-20 stu... Read More

  • V V - You got that right, the cookie party host - Bob to be exact since his wife Sally isn't doing this - takes the bottles we bring and sets them aside, leaving us to drink the cheap $10-$15 wine.  He knows several of us drink decent wine, since he's attended several of our wine tasting parties these past few years and for the most part people ...

  • Sandra and I were treated to dinner tonight by our daughter-in-law's parents, and they took us to a Korean restaurant in Tyson's Corner Virginia called Woo Lae Oak.  This is the kind of place where they cook the meat right at your table, but in our case they cooked it at a neighboring table since we didn't have much room for all the food already...

  • EM - I just know that Pauillac Bordeaux was a good wine, even though I can't see the vintage - unless that 1992 stamp on the left is the vintage.  Unresolved tannin?  I guess you mean still some strong tannin on that makes you pucker up after it enters you mouth?Yesterday, the day prior to our 32nd Anniversary, we went out to the Tyson's Mall so...

  • You learn something every day and last Saturday was no exception. Did you know that at a Christening the bottle of celebration Champagne should be bigger than the baby? That means of course that a single bottle that holds a mere 750 millilitres is no where near big enough. I have a confession to make; I always get confused when it comes to Champ... Read More

  • This afternoon we attended a very powerful play in Washington DC called 'Bad Jews' with our friends Jim & Olga.  The play all takes place in a small apartment and if you ever have a chance to see it, please do see it.  Prior to the play Sandra and I enjoyed a small glass of Cline Pinot Noir at the theater, but following the play we dined nearby ...

  • Took the day off Friday--my seniority means lots of vacation, my house project means I took very little of it this year.  Wife and I headed up to Spring Mountain Vineyards, courtesy a most-excellent Snooth-friend, who made us a gift of one of his annual visits and tastings--as a member of their wine club, he receives several and he was unable to...

  • America’s first vertical tasting of the fine wines of Podere Sapaio from Bolgheri in Coastal Tuscany took place at my restaurant, Undici Taverna Rustica in Rumson, NJ, this past year. Owner, enologist Massimo Piccin was present and told us, “We are wine. We are men and women winemakers who transform grapes into wine by means of our know-how, our... Read More
