  • Agreed on Riserva, and non-Riserva. I'm not really as interested in the extra aging or official qualifications, just that if the producer is deciding to bottle a regular and a riserva, the riserva is typically a better, or more highly regarded wine due to the cru, blocks within the cru, barrel select, etc. They all have their story I'm sure, and...

  • The past couple nights I have followed this Agharta Exhibit C. Seeing I went in on a library offer of this from Garagiste last month I figured no time like the present to take a look before it arrives. Whenever that will be.Based on this bottle they can take their time because it is still stuffed in all directions. I wouldn't open this unless yo... Read More

  • Foxall and I are getting together for a Burgundy and Barolo dinner in Oakland this Saturday. We may have a seat or two available for anyone willing to make some spur of the moment travel plans. Read More

  • Interestingly enough, was an offer from our friend Ian Cauble that falls right within this thread's discussion:  Massimo Clerico, Nebbiolo, Lessona DOC Piedmont, Italy 2008 If there is one lesson that is common amongst all the great red wines of the world, it is that nothing can substitute for optimal bottle age. You can decant a young wine t... Read More

  • One of the first things that comes to mind when a consumer envisions a winery is a huge stack of barrels. The amazing smell of wine soaked oak with its toasty, warm wood scent is intoxicating. As a winemaker, I never get tired of it. It always smells good assuming that the winery is taking proper care of their investment with cleanliness and san... Read More

  • Planning to do some exploring into Italy's other wine varietals, those without the fanfare or popularity of Sangiovese, Nebbiolo, Barbera, and Dolcetto, etc.First up is a Ruche with a few years bottle age by Montalbera, apparently a lighter wine that was traditionally brought out for special occassions...figure this should make for a nice aperti...

  • GregT, agree with you completely.  Matthews isn't saying there's no influence of soil, climate, etc.  What I hear him saying is, Tell me what you mean by "terroir" and we'll test the effects.  Not something "ineffable" and, by definition or want of same, unmeasurable.  Eff "ineffable."  Because whatever the effect is, rigorous testing (or semi-r...

  • Paul, thanks for the link.  You can activate it using the bar right above the text--it's the icon that looks like a globe with a chain in front of it.  (WorldWideWeb + Link).I've read the article now.  What I'm getting is that you can measure a "terroir" effect if you hold everything absolutely constant and use the most discriminating lab tools ...

  • Kramer is understandably unhappy, as Matthews uses a quote from him that goes way mystical and just hands the game to Matthews. But he doesn't limit himself to the pompous bozos at WS, he goes after McNeil and all kinds of folks.  We all deserve it.Matthews doesn't say there isn't an influence of land/climate/aspect on winemaking, but he points ...
