Fairly intense aromatically, showing off lots of caramelly toasted oak aromas along with paprika and raw beefy accented red berry fruit topped with some bay leaf and oregano . This is smooth, firm and slightly dense in the mouth. It’s filled with polis...

Smells a bit stony then deeply earthy with a bit of sweet oak tempered by a dried rose petal notes, some red licorice tones and a bit of café au lait. Lovely deep blackberry, boysenberry fruit here with a touch of vanilla and bay leaf that adds a hint ...

HUGE nose (was filling the room within 10 minutes): Black Currant, Blackberry, Mushroom, Green Pepper, Bay Leaf, Mint, Cocoa, Cigar Box and a little Strawberry to tie it all together. Taste was primarily fine tobacco together with a bit of camphor and ...

A touch stemmy on the nose which shows a hint of pencil lead and quite perfumed bay leaf aromas. Smooth, a touch matte and with a hint of richness on the palate, this delivers a nice mouthful of slightly spicy black cherry fruit supported by lovely aus...

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...

Smoy and lightly caramelly on the nose with lots of darkly jammy blackberry fruit and hints of both dates and pomegranate with a dusting of white pepper as a top note. Smooth as wool on entry, a little fuzzy but ultimately plush and friendly with a big...

60% old vine vineyard field lend, 40% Touriga nacional Smokey and fairly oaky on the nose with a nutty and expensive aroma. A big wine on entry, round and rolls into the mouth like the changing tide. There are great acids supporting a bright juicy b...

A hint of nutty smokiness greets the nose followed by handful of dirty, freshly dug herbs. This smells powerful and savory with a slightly roasted base note of strawberries with a hint of pomegranate seed and orange pith. This enters the mouth with dec...

While going through my grandmother's basement, we found 2 cases of wine. The first, 1978 Liebfraumilch Qualitatswein (with black pieces floating in it and an internet search that deemed it garbage even when bottled), and the second, Paul Masson Monterey County Chardonnay 1978 (Second Bottling). I've not been able to find anything out about the l... Read More
When you get to two kids and some gear, side trips to Joshua or whatever going our way to yours, then I-5 is a necessary evil. Recently friends have done LA from SF by flying and using Uber and some light rail. Doing it the other way--flying to SF or Oakland and using BART, Uber, and the like is easier still. It's those Napa/Sonoma/Marin jaunt... Read More
D, just didn't want the post to go overly long, and with the rhinovirus, I couldn't be completely fair. But here's a thumbnail:Wife and I split an app and a main. App was an octopus dish, which is one of those things I can't really do at home well, so I look for it when out. If octopus is done well, it's amazing, but badly done it's rubbery a... Read More
November 28 update:We were back in Amador County for Thanksgiving. (Puppy bonding took precedence over family this year, so we left the Bay Area to get away from everyone.) While there we stayed at Rest, A Boutique Hotel. Rest is owned by Tracey and Mark Berkner, who met while working for Marriott. He's a chef, but moved to the operational si... Read More
Hello all,I'm not actually a beginner in wine preparation. I started preparing wine 3 months ago. I've tasted different varieties of wine and my favorite is Merlot wine. I had a doubt earlier on how to store the prepared wine. I searched many sources and asked many friends and I happened to read an article yesterday which had tips to properly s... Read More
Happy Halloween, wine lover! This hallowed holiday isn't just for kids. Adults can and should enjoy their favorite Halloween candies with a little bit of wine. Wine and Halloween candy pairings may be contrived, but that doesn't make them any less fun. In fact, these pairings are quite complex. They are a fine and delicate art not suited to the ...

@Emark - yeah I hate that Murphy guy. Always mucking things up. Could of put in the insulation almost any other time. Probably 95% the rest of the year, and ofcourse happens on the hottest days. ha@Outthere - I just said SF cause it was easy. It's actually El Cerrito in the east bay. So it can get a good 10 degrees warmer than the city. ... Read More
Hi, Just had some insulation put in our walls and the installer unplugged our cooler! We didn't notice it for about a week and that was during some hefty temps outside. It probably got to 85 in the house for a couple days. Had a bunch of 2012 anniversary wines in there being stores a 56 degrees. Do you think a week of higher temps will eff... Read More
