  • You're right Emark - I didn't want to get into that but yeah, we had Pink Chablis and Hearty Burgundy and all that. Gallo and a few others made it and Mondavi didn't want to be considered in their league. He didn't really have a lot of options other than fantasy names or grape varieties. And there were indeed other producers of single-variety wi... Read More

  • AoK - it's not that difficult if you think about the history. In Europe, the guys would go out and plant some vines and if a particular vine put out some pretty good grapes, they'd take cuttings, root those, and get more of that grape. When invaders or travellers showed up or when people travelled elsewhere, they'd see something that looked prom... Read More

  • One of these days we're going to have to have a discussion of the term "Monopole," but maybe not here and now.Mrs. EMark has been working very hard all day on some sort of Mexican meal for tonight.  At the moment I don't have any Mexican wines in the inventory.  So, we are going to an Old World wine from the Spanish language motherland: PnPed, s...

  • Melis Grenache Blend Priorat 2005

    Snoothrank:

    PnPed. Quite fruity (not California PN fruity) with red plum, strawberry flavors with some vanilla oak. Very little acid, and even though I am an acid bigot, this is not translated into a minus. A medium-bodied wine whose tannins appear to have settled nicely. A very enjoyable wine. Read More

    Wine review by EMark


  • Dvogler, great I'll check it out.Emark, you say that there is a bias to local wines. Nothing wrong with supporting wines from home soil :) At this point, I'm so new to the industry that I'm sure there is plenty to explore with local wines.A Aok, French wines sound very intriguing and mysterious as well like you mention. I think that is definitel... Read More

  • New world wine make it so easy. It's all written right on the label. Winery / year / grape. No mystery what so ever. Old world wines are not labeled so simply. You often will need to do your homework in order to know what you are drinking.Pardon my contrarianism, AOK, but are your really denigrating transparency in labels?  I think a lot of peop...

  • That girlfriend of mine was more house/trance for dancing and world music, including chillout stuff like Buddha Bar and Cafe Del Mar, for ambient listening. Yeah, I know.; )Fun thread, reminds me I need to watch Casablanca again. Fell asleep the first time, just because I was done that particular night, energy wise. Read More

    Forum post in the topic Super Bowl, Super Wine


  • I pretty much agree with you, OT.  We all knew that nothing was going to happen that might have cast any kind of a shadow on Sunday's game, but now powers that be have the opportunity to sanctimoniously "protect the integrity of the game for the fans."  (Sarcasm intentional.)  Remember, in the case of the Patriots we can say that they are a repe...

  • Everybody cheats in the NFL. Not everyone gets caught. Media made this way more of a story than it ever ever deserved to be. Remember, this is the same league that let Richard Sherman off of a PED charge on appeal when he tested positive. The same league that couldn't find a copy of the video of Ray Rice beating his girlfriend in a two month inv... Read More

  • Welcome Georgetollman :)In your exploration of wine, might I persuade you to learn about the complexities of French wine culture. It is far more interesting than new world wine history. Many of the most common grapes originate from France anyway. I've been studying the different wine regions of France and learning about the grapes, the French cl... Read More
