Really I was joking when I told my girlfriend Susie the other night that I could get at least a hundred bucks for this wine on eBay. She looked at me wryly, "really?" and pop went the cork. I was cooking up some of the Halibut that Susie had caught las...

The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More
White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More
Sandra and I made it to Kelley Fox Wines this afternoon. Kelley gave us a barrel tasting from several vineyards plus a taste from a few of her 2014 vintages. Quite a nice experience and we learned a good deal about her biodynamic argriculture approach to making wine. Read More
I am drinking a 2013 Porca de Murca, Douro Reserva from Portugal. The wine seems to be fine, clear sight, clean fruity nose, in the beginning its fine on the palate (maybe a lack of fruit compared to the nose)... everything but the finish. It has a weird bitter finish, very unpleasant. Its not the tart taste of tannins (even so it is pretty high... Read More
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...

What kind of wine fridges are best? Etc., etc.I was doing some real estate shopping in the Ventura/Santa Barbara counties area and ran across a higher-end h... Read More
Secret Santa 2015 was a success! We eventually figured out who the senders and recipients were based on past drinking habits and assorted sleuthing. Some bottles were consumed quickly but others are in storage awaiting the right moment to enjoy them. Thanks to everyone for participating. Final pairings are listed below:JONDERRY - received bo...

In defense of Oaked and Buttery Chardonnays I must say that "I like it". I know the trend is for the unoaked stainless steel ferment to be on the rise and people are saying that they prefer it over the "Other kind". That may be the trend but the Oaked and Buttery varieties are still my favorites although the unoaked brands are ok also.So in fin... Read More
Hi guys, it's me again... crazy Brazilian-New Yorker chick asking for advice on wine travel...So I will have 4 full days in the area (May 14-17) and wanted to pick your brains for anything amazing and cost-beneficial you can come up with (except for hotels, I could care less about where I stay, all money goes to wine!).For timing reasons, my mai...
