AWE blind tasting - coffee candy, yuck, dirties up a bit, gains some nice old school notes, with a touch of oxidation showing, turning minty, dusty and old wood like, smells vaguely like a barn, loose up front but then showing some nice sweet/spicy fru...

Had this at La Cave du Vin in Cleveland Heights - amazing wine! Aromas that would make you think twice about it - barn yard and earth. Deliciously earthy and fruity on the palate.

"There is no California equivalent."All we can do is try to get close. $12 for a liter is about as cheap as it gets around here. I think I buy liters of Grüner at Bottle Barn for $10.99."This is the kind of conversation I'd enjoy having sitting around a table with a few bottles of wine and a few wine enthusiasts. :)"Stick around. I do offlines o... Read More
After merging most of my wine to the new cellar I found I was lacking in some defenders so off to Bottle Barn I went.3 x 750ml Shebang! Eighth Cuvée North Coast Red3 x 1L Franz Etz Grüner VetlinerProblem is my eyes kept straying and I found myself browsing the imports. The Burgs were too pricey, as were the Barolos, I wanted some Huet Le Mont S... Read More
Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

D, they won't cut costs by building visiting facilities. Amity had the most downscale "tasting room," basically a space under their pole barn's roof, when I went there a few years ago. Sigh. The wines were really good values, but Myron was too iconoclastic for much of the wine industry. I noticed someone else is using one of his gamay source... Read More
We finally got the news that we are approved for our planning permit. Now comes the really trying part: building permits, contractors' estimates, dislocation, refinancing, and dealing with the neighbor who tried to stop the project and who will harass the contractor. But it's official: I get a basement with room for a real cellar with temper... Read More
To me this is weird.A few years back I used to participate in the annual 'Togenkyo Marathon' up around the border of Nagano and Yamanashi prefectures, mountainous areas to the west of Tokyo. Already well into my office lifestyle I only attempted the 10k event, and that was plenty. Beautiful area, especially since the timing was when all the peac... Read More
I haven't tasted a Zinfandel in many years and would like to get reacquainted. Any recommendations for a fruit-forward one around $25? Read More
So, we have many different types of wineries with tasting rooms, right?Some are castles... (Castello Di Amarosa)Some are in peoples homes...Some are in mansions (Ledson)So on so forth...I'm interested to hear about, by far, THE WEIRDEST wineries/tasting rooms out there that should basically be in some kind of fairy tale in reality. Has anyone be... Read More
I took some heat last week for my less than glowing review of Brunello di Montalcino. While those wines were attractive, if you’re suggesting to people that they spend money on wines from Montalcino this year, my money is on the Rossos. I’m here to try and present the value proposition to readers. Sure values come in shapes and sizes, may they a... Read More
