I don't often choose whites, but I was in the mood and my eye was caught by the menu line. Philadelphia's Tria Cafe mentions grapefruit and grass; they're right, and I loved the wine. Citrus, crisp finish, grassy complexity.

I thought about pouring this one through the aerator, but instead just let it breathe for an hour before tasting. The nose is quite complex, with a lot of different aromas going on that it almost makes you dizzy, there is a lovely smoky aroma that per...

Enjoyed with seafood dinner at "Java Moon Cafe" (BYOB). Married well with the Tilapia. Good, inexpensive wine to accompany a light meal.

One of my all time favorites, a solid blend that when drinking a glass on the patio takes me back to Paris in the springtime, enjoying a glass of bordeaux at a sidewalk cafe in the early evening. A nice big wine, earthy and smooth with flavors of blac...

This is an elegant monster requiring patience on the palate and airing of at least an hour and a half. The nose opens to a luxurious array of dark berries, cherry, coffee, dark chocolate, earth, tar, graphite, and pepper. At uncorking, the palate lau...

Firstly this is Jose Pastor for under 12 bucks! That alone should make it worth popping the cork. But after you taste it, you won’t care who the negociant was. Certainly this is a budget bottle, but man does it deliver for 12 bucks! All the typical...

Earthy, savory, rich and complex on the nose with leather and peppery nuances framing a core of pure black currant fruit. Cool and seamless one entry, then this both fleshes out a bit and firms up nicely revealing lots of polished tannins are lurking under the juicy red currant and baked black berry fruit. Picking up a bit of cafe au lait and a ... Read More
After a brief introduction to the the state of Washington this past Monday I reported on my visits to wineries in Walla Walla on Tuesday. Today I am reporting on visits both in Prosser, which lies roughly between Walla Walla and Seattle in the Yakima Valley as well as to wineries located basically within Seattle’s metropolitan footprint. As I’v... Read More
Oh, the resto is in Palm Beach, FLA. Not a bad wine list for Florida, but not exactly Union Square Cafe. Read More
*Please Stop using the term Fine Dining in the USA unless you understand the Dance.-Fine Dining requires both the guest(s) and service professional to work together.When the dance is performed perfectly, the service and memories are magical.I suggest Finer Dining as a term for Finer Italian and French service and cuisine.

Well we are back from the Glen Ellen/Kenwood trip. We found a few wines we liked, and enjoyed exploring the area. Since I am a big pinot person, especially RRV or sonoma coast, I knew I wasn't necessarily in the heart of that area of Sonoma, But since it had been so long since I visited this area, we decided to give it a go.We stopped first in ...

Hi all,Thinking about getting down there after NYE, but will have well-behaved nine year old with us. Are most of the wineries in Kenwood/ Glen ellen child friendly? Read More
It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy. This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More
I have a good memory and as with most people it is particularly astute when recorded painful moments in one’s life. Take for example 1994, when I finally broke into my stash of benchmark 1982 Barolo. We’re talking Marcarini, and Cascina Francia, Monprivato and Vietti. There were six bottles in all, and I carefully decanted them before cooking di... Read More
I’ve already written up my thoughts on some white wines tasted while in Portugal this past summer. I wanted to get that information out in front of you while it was still most pertinent, hot, and sunny. Now as we transition to Autumn I want to give you the rundown on the red wines I enjoyed while in Portugal, wines that are well suited to the co... Read More
Barbera, when you ask most people their initial reaction to the name might yield blank stares, or worse. While Barbera is capable of producing some impressive wines it is also all too capable of producing pretty bad wines, both with capable winemaking and without. The problem lies with Barbera’s incredibly high natural acidity, and the issues th... Read More
