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 ...

Bonus Day - Oakland After dropping off the rest or our gang at the airport, the CFO and I decided to extend our vacation by a day and check out the Oakland/Berkely area. Hey we're out here, might as well make the most of it. After checking into our hotel by the marina and grabbing a nice brunch of shrimp tacos we went stomping around the Berkel... Read More

Carménère is an old grape variety from the Gironde. DNA analysis suggests that it’s a cross between Cabernet Franc and Gros Cabernet (which is itself a distant relative of Cabernet Franc). Fortunately for our collective palates, when it comes to wine grape parentage, breeding with a relative can be a very good thing. Carménère is a highly refine... Read More
We talked a lot about sparkling wine last week but there is a lot more to cover. The biggest sparkling wine day of the year, New Year's Eve, is right around the corner. Opening a bottle of sparkling wine can be a a dangerous proposition. There's a lot of pressure under that cork! But if you like living on the edge, there's always sabrage. When t... Read More

Can you imagine going to a restaurant and ordering food you’d never heard of, shelling out for a theatre ticket without having some idea of what the show was about, or choosing a dress you didn’t even like? Of course not. But that’s what happens when it comes to wine. Sadly, most people haven’t a clue what they’re buying; the price tag, an attra... Read More
