  • Can we go back to the Nebbiolo discussion?  Those timelines were all shortened so that the wineries could release wine to the market faster and recoup money, esp when Barolo and Barbaresco got spendy and trendy.  Yes, some changes in the winemaking tamed the wines so you could drink them earlier, and riper grapes have moved things in that direct...

  • Doesn't Nebbiolo normally het more than nine months on the barrel?Beats me.  If so, then I guess another rule falls.Wait a second. Het?  Did you take typing lessons from RBA?I get a kick out of trying these Baja wines that B-I-L brings back.  On whole, they remind me, a lot, of Temecula wines.  Most of them are OK, but I don't think that I have,...

  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

  • California Chardonnay has gone through a transformation over the years. It was the Judgement of Paris in 1976 that put it on the map as a serious wine that could rival Burgundy producers who'd been making wine for centuries. But during the 1990's, a lot of experimentation in the California wine market took place. The ideologies wanted to reflect... Read More

  • As wine lovers who among us doesn't enjoy doing horizontal tastings of wines from a single vineyard? That would probably be none of us yet the opportunity to do this doesn't surface very often. I remember doing a Limerick Lane Zinfandel horizontal last year with 6 takes on the same fruit. Other than that I'm at a loss. It's a great opportunity t... Read More

  • I already posted our 'tasting notes' in response to your same question earlier DM.  I don't try to evaluate wines in detail because I am not sensitive (in my opinion) to the subtle complexities in wine.  I am able to appreciate wines by the overall mouth-feel and I let it go at that.  Sandra is better with the complexities but we are not up to y...
