EMARK - I'd been drinking wine for 5-6 years by then so it wasn't immediate. Wines weren't what they are now. Like you things accelerated rapidly, 2 years later I was at Stag's Leap Wine Cellars learning the effects of the Judgement of Paris from WW himself. I bought my 1st Cask 123 that year.It will be interesting to read the other replies.... Read More
I remember mine completely, just like it was yesterday, all except for the producer which I think was Tyrrell, but after 40+ yrs the name has faded. What remains vivid is the experience. The place was in Freemantle, just outside Perth, in 1976. Hungry for a good meal, myself and 2 friends chanced upon this spot. It was owned by a WW2 refuge... 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

Cariñena the region doesn’t jum... Read More

A couple of news items I was pondering today.First, Robert Parker came out with his ratings for the 2009 Bordeaux vintage. Ever the masochist, I decided to go look at some prices in the marketplace after the ratings were released. Some samplings:2009 Chatau Latour 100 points $21,500 a case2009 Chateau Marg... 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... Read More
