  • Mike makes his wines for near term drinking. He always tells me "People like flavor. People drink flavor. People buy flavor."  While he's a guy that enjoys aged Barolo and Burgundy he is first off a winemaker who has to sell his wine.

  • I know exactly what you mean about not being able to slow down too much as the trucks come right up on you.  There was three lanes going up one hill, and one of the trucks pulled out to pass another one.  I was in the left lane coming up on them in pouring rain / fog; that truck in the middle lane had a wide load, as in a steam shovel on his tra...

  • Just got another box of Mike Smith's wines, and have noticed the ABV's are in a reasonable space for today's super ripe Napa market.

  • My big day mixing in the wine world as I've kind of helped break this news, owing to a friend of mine who is close to Laurent Ponsot. Same friend from the Netherlands who GregT and I tasted with in San Diego.

  • Day 3, just when you thought it couldn't get any better. Yesterday was a hell of a day, great wine, great people and a lot of fun. Today we headed over the hill to the "other side" where we met up with Robin Akhurst, winemaker extraordinaire and just an all around great guy. We met Robin two years ago thru no other than our favorite local expert... Read More
