  • Keep the reports coming, Al.  So, far they have been very enjoyable.In the meantime back here in the Western Hemisphere it is a day ending in "y."  You know what that means:  Zinfandel. If I've told this story before, my excuse is that I am old.  Last June the EMark's were driving around Dry Creek Valley with no particular destination.  Mrs. EMa...

  • Petite Sirah has the stuffing to hold up to extended oak aging. It can also be made in a lighter, fruit-forward, early drinking style. As a result, a survey of current release Petite Sirah from several producers might easily span four or more vintages. The wines selected for you below, all current releases from Northern California, run from 2009... Read More

  • The opportunity to invest in wine before it enters the bottle is a special one, especially when it comes to Bordeaux. En Primeur is a long and storied tradition of the Old World. It also has been adopted in New World regions such as California and Australia. Tasting young barrel samples two years prior to a vintage’s release is a palate-twisting... Read More

  • "Guess what day it is"  It's Wednesday, April 15th 2015. Aside from being Tax Day it means time for the annual Las Madres Vineyard Winemakers Luncheon. 2014 marks the 15th leaf and will be the 12th vintage for this cool climate Syrah vineyard nestled in the rolling hills of Carneros in Sonoma. It's been cool, foggy and windy the past few days le...

  • Lindeman - what DV said. Try it and see what happens. Sometimes it's really helpful for a young wine. Price isn't necessarily the issue. One thing that happens is that when a wine is bottled, there's usually a little bit of sulfur added. The purpose of the sulfur is to stabilize the wine and prevent oxidizing. It's generally only a little that i... Read More

  • Lindeman, a lot of it depends on what the winemaker wants. If he wants a little licorice in the wine, he goes down to the store and buys a can of Aunt Granny's Down Home Pure and Natural Licorice Flavoring. He throws a cup or two of that into the barrel and voila! Licorice!Actually that's not what happens and I've never come across your question... Read More

  • Retired and looking to become more acquainted with wine products.  It seems like an vast array of confusion to me.  I only drink dark red wines, and the cheap kinds- as you might be able to tell by my username- but I love wine.  So let me get my many thoughts together and in some kind of order and I will get back.  Thank you community.  Read More

  • I am a life long wine enthusiast with a preference for Bordeaux, particularly if consumed at maturity. I do enjoy wines from other parts of the world but find I like the ones that have a claret style best. I dislike CA/domestic  fruit bombs that seem so prevalent and popular in the U S.My bias toward Bordeaux was probably set when a friend of mi... Read More

  • Rioja remains one of the very last bastions of value when it comes to traditionally styled wines. However, it offers consumers considerably more than that: it affords consumers the chance to purchase aged wines that are ready to drink at prices that make them undeniable bargains. But today that is not what I want to talk about. I’m still going t... Read More
