  • Al1,I've not had the up-front dough to devote to an estate sale, but I'm guessing it's like picking stocks with a dartboard.  EMark has had some nice scoops but also some stinkers.  I'd be willing to bet though that you'll come out ahead.  Nothing better than a nice old wine that you didn't sit on for 20 years and didn't break the bank.  Interes...

  • This is my first post. I'm not sure this is for me but I'm giving it a go. on first blush this looks like it could be fun and educational.  Read More

    Forum post in the topic Hello Enophiles!

  • It always seemed odd to us that in Piemonte, the land of Barolo, the King of Wines and the Wine of Kings, we would always find a bottle of Barbera in front of us on the table. The answer was and is simple: Barbera is bountiful, versatile, delicious and moderate in price. The Piemontesi drink more reds than whites and almost 50% of the reds that ... Read More

  • I would take up the challenge, but it is so easy to poke holes in a simple model.  Bear in mind, I keep the model simple so it is easier for beginning students to understand and perhaps even remember.As far as I have read, botanists fail to understand how the composition of the underlying soil can affect the final aromas found in wine; yet the m...

  • Blind tastings are essential to take your wine appreciation to the next level. They focus all your senses (including sight) more than they might otherwise be, sharpen your memory (recall and storage), engage your competitive spirit to further heighten most everything, and provide entertainment when you see others (and yourself) making fools of t...

  • Sandra and I were fortunate yesterday to attend a quickly sold out (57 minutes after the e-mail went out to the RdV Ambassador members, it was fully booked) 'Introduction to Blind Tasting' class at our favorite Northern Virginia winery, RdV.  Getting our two slots in this class was tough, as we didn't call them until 5 or 6 hours after their e-m...

  • Keenan Merlot Napa Valley 2010


    Flowery nose suggesting violets, but also some red fruit and, maybe some herbdillscents. A hit of cherry on the tip of the tongue, but, thankfully, it passes quickly. Not as tannic as previous Keenan Napa Merlots that I have had. Overall, this is a round, easy to drink wine that most wine geeks would drink in secret while telling all their w... Read More

    Wine review by EMark

  • Al, I may have misled you. Right Bank and Left Bank are both within the Bordeaux. They are not official designations but, rather, convenient informal geographic descriptions.  The "Right Bank" describes the area to the immediate north of the Dordogne River just before it flows into the Gironde Estuary.  The most famous "Right Bank" AOCs are Pome...

    Forum post in the topic Super Bowl, Super Wine

  • Getting close to kickoff time.Not sure how to answer that, Al.  Right Bank Bordeaux wines are more Merlot domininant and Left Bank ones are more Cabernet Sauvignon dominant.  That pretty much exhausts my knowledge of the topic. A few hours ago I could hear Mrs. EMark slicing and dicing in the kitchen.  Then she came up here and asked for a red w...

  • Hey, Sandra say's I'm more of a 'right bank' wine drinker while she is more of a 'left bank' person.  What do you guys think? Read More
