To our valued customer, I am fortunate to spend quite a lot of time in France, and in my travels when ordering a wine, even an inexpensive house wine in a restaurant or small cafe in France, the wine is always a pleasant, enjoyable experience. One reason it is difficult to get such pleasant wines in the United States is that the wines here get "cooked" somewhere along the way; either on docks, in trucks or sitting in the heat and sun for months in liquor stores. We all know that wine is a living, breathing entity that needs special care; yet most merchants say it's too expensive to ship and store wine in a temperature-controlled environment. I ask, "How can that be, when a 25-cent banana in the store has been shipped and stored under good temperature control?" (The same range as wine temperatures, by the way.) We have solved this problem for you because our wines, imported by Wine-Cask Imports, Inc., are temperature-controlled from the chateau to your front door. Our wine selections are all well Read more »

  • "OT, do you drink Gallo?"Yep, I do, as do many here. Gallo brands are far reaching. Look what's on my countertop right now... Frei Bros is a Gallo brand, so is Louis Martini. That Rancho Zabaco that EMark drank the other night, you guessed it, Gallo brand. They are a huge operation that produces a lot of pedestrian wine. They also make wines on ... Read More

  • So what’s the first thing you think of when you read Cariñena? I thought of the grape Cariñena, aka Carignane, eponymous as it is. What I did not think of was the region Cariñena in Spain’s province of Aragon. Why is that? It’s a good question, and one I resolved while visiting the region briefly early last month. Cariñena the region doesn’t jum... Read More

  • Stag's Leap Wine Cellars has a very strong reputation for producing excellent Napa Valley Cabs.  I suppose this dates back to their success in the 1976 Paris Wine Tasting when it bested some first growth Bordeauxs.  I've had the '03 & '05 S.L.V. and their a few vintages of their Artemis and was impressed.  However, all of their 2007 bottlings (C...

  • Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District Cask 23 2007


    Cream of the crop in the Stag's Leap District. The staff at Stag's Leap set up a blind tasting of Cask 23, SLV, Fay, and Artemis for both my wife and me. We each independently ranked them the same, and in that order. No doubt Cask 23 was the superior bottle. Bold and full-bodied, yet balanced. Tannins could mellow a bit, but given a few years i...

  • Just throught I would throw out this question to the educated audience:If you were put in charge of giving five California Estates "First Grwoth" status as was done in Bordeaux back in 1855, what would your list look like?While I haven't had the pleasure to try many of these, mine would go:1) Screaming Eagle2) Harlan Estate3) Bryant Family4) Sin...
