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...

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...

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
Dude, I went to Holdredge expecting that you would be pouring! Plus the last time I called you had to work. Anyway, I passed along your regards (and Mike Talty's) to Carrie. I'll have another two bottles there for you to pick up for me if you ever make it over that way. I love W. Sonoma, it's just so incestuous.Seriously, friends of ours had t... Read More
The next time you visit Barcelona, Spain, get yourself into the mountainous vineyard regions of Priorat and Montsant, just a short drive from this beautiful Mediterranean city. “Which region is which?” This may sound crazy but think of the regions as a fried egg! The yolk is Priorat, the surrounding egg white is Montsant. Not very technical I ag... Read More
I have been trying to find info on wine terminology. Im lost everytime I visit the wine section and read the reviews as I dont know what they mean. Please help. I enjoy red and whites that are not very sweet and not dry and that I can drink 3 sips at once without having to pucker. Not as sweet as Beringers white zifandel and not as dry as Mir... Read More
Mine started about six years ago when I met my wife. We played volleyball in an adult league against each other and hit it off at the bar after. We never drank wine together (only lots of beer) and the subject never came up. We had been "dating" a few weeks when I invited her over to make us dinner. She said she would bring a bottle of wine.... Read More
Vangelis was good before Gallo got to him. Just like they ruined all those wine brands. But I can name a half dozen of his songs I'd still listen to.(Y'know, tongue in cheek...)My daughter is in a band that plays for a circus. They are playing the "Chariots of Fire" theme, as well as Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger." I'm wearing headphones aroun... Read More

I got so excited about dolcetto this year, see my report on The Return of Dolcetto, that I almost forgot about Barbera! I love Barbera. It’s a rich wine, though too often spoofed up with too much oak, but when you find an example that focuses on the fruit you get a wine that is bursting with mouth cleansing acids, rich with plummy fruit, and li...
