Before sharing my tasting notes on this wine, let me just say I’m relieved my wine geekiness/giddiness did not show too badly when sharing a table with Robert Brittan. He’s a wine making legend out of Napa Valley. For 16 years, Brittan was the winemake...

This is textbook Barolo, a nose redolent of limestone, antiseptic medicinal tones, cherries in alcohol, a touch of angelica root, and subtle insinuation of herb in a very focused and driven aromatic display. On the palate this is superbly precise with ...

Good chardonnay. Haven't visited them much this decade, and have to admit after seeing the sticker price I am a bit shocked. Everything being relative, though, I'm sure we could find some Burgundies compared to which this is a bargain.From BPWine: One of the worlds finest Chardonnays from any country....a MUST for serious collectors and Chardon...

This past month the wine world suffered a blow when famed Calistoga wine writer George Starke died of aspiration pneumonia. He was 93 years old. The legend had been a wine writer for 50 years, a Napa Valley Register article said this week. His weekly column “Up and Down the Wine Roads” was a regular in the St. Helena Star and the Register up u... Read More
The wine has a nice ruby color in the glass with nice clarity. The nose is better than I was expecting, with notes of blackberry, violets and a hint of leather. The taste was somewhat lackluster, with somewhat syrupy fruit up front that transitioned to some earthy notes of oak and black pepper midpalate. The tannins are still a bit tight, lea... Read More
This past December saw the passing of Lebanese winemaker and beloved industry voice Serge Hochar, a man whose passion for wine put Lebanese vino on the map. Yesterday, Kansas City Star contributor Doug Frost, a Master Sommelier and Master of Wine, offered a few lessons he learned from the life of the Lebanese Master whose enthusiasm and knowled...

Working at a notable wine venue, that serves amazing cuisine, occasionally we have guests that bring legends. DRC,Penfolds, Latour, Petrus, Lafite, Gaja and Giacosa and more.-In my strongest opinion, I think the Cork Fee should be waived at a venue if the guest decides to compliment your food and venue with an amazing wine.It is an opportunity ...

Sometimes I have to think a minute about what sort of wine would be appropriate with an activity, rather than a certain meal. I mean, you might pour a glass of wine without any thought given to a food stuff that might be consumed while you enjoy the wine. For instance, I could come home and find one of our cats sleeping on the couch in the fami... Read More
It’s urban legend that top wine pros can blindly identify a wide array of wines. Blindly naming a wine’s provenance, vintage, and vineyard is the most humbling exercise in the wine world. But there are some things you can do to get closer to the correct answer. This is a rich, endless topic. For right now, we’ll focus on the identification of un... Read More
Nothing says “Let the festivities begin!” like a Champagne toast by a Champagne magnate. Famed French winemaker Oliver Krug led a toast to mark the beginning of the 2015 Naples (Florida) Winter Wine Festival. This year's festival, which takes place at the Ritz-Carlton Resort of Naples, will feature a Champagne tasting and seminar as well as an a... Read More
I go to S. Calif every winter to visit family and drive up to Santa Barbara for a day to visit vineyards. We've now been to quite a few vineyards and among our favorites are Zaca Mesa, Koehler and Bridlewood. But the stand-out vineyard was Demetria. You need a reservation to visit, but it's worth it. It's at the end of a long winding private ro... Read More
Money says a lot of about a country. For Crimea and its up-and-coming vigneron community, money means the opportunity to showcase what makes their region what it is. Earlier this week Crimean officials petitioned the Russian government to issue Crimean cash with images of the country's vineyards. According to a December 12 article by the English... Read More
