  • Not much grown in CA - it's a grape that does well in slightly cooler areas and too many people think that Pinot Noir is the only grape worth considering when you get to that category. I think that's mostly because of marketing and because people just don't taste very many grapes other than the top ten.In any case, the literal translation is Blu... Read More

  • Despite having been a center of viticulture since the Roman era, it could be argued that the wines of Chablis have never had such cachet among wine geeks as they do right now. As more and more wine lovers have the chance to try older vintages of these steely, austere, and mineral-driven Chardonnays from Burgundy’s northwestern corner, more of th... Read More

  • Now that you mention it, Jon, most of the ones I have were shipped from the winery.  At least one was purchased at the winery, I'll have to look more closely at my inventory to see if I bought any at a retail store.I knew there was another reason why I hated Coravins.The Coravin thing makes some sense, but that's a pretty new gadget.  I suppose ...

    Forum post in the topic Capsules on Wine Bottles


  • Capsules are a way of sealing the bottle. Especially now with Coravin, you never know if someone is going to inject a needle in to a bottle of wine!However, for direct shipments like Bedrock, etc. their move to forego the capsule is generally applauded and makes more sense when bypassing the retail part of the supply chain.

    Forum post in the topic Capsules on Wine Bottles


  • About a year ago I ranted a bit about the wax capsules that some makers put over the corked end of the bottle.  The cooler heads of the Forum calmed me down, and I am now co-existing with these.In the past few years I have noticed that more and more makers (U.S.) are not applying a capsule at all.  I have to say, I like this idea, a lot.  Some s...

  • I drank a bottle of $10 Barbaresco the other day.Barbaresco is a wine region situated in Piemonte, Italy’s North West, just to the south of Torino. It is the sister wine of the better known Barolo and is similarly made entirely from the indigenous grape Nebbiolo. The wines are aged for over two years at the winery and released three years from t... Read More

  • Oxl Rheinhessen Off Dry Dornfelder 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A Tasting Room Quarterly selection. Too young, too fruity, and too sweet for my tastes, but did go well with a bit of marinated and grilled pork. A rather brash nose opens with youth, a hint of baking yeast, and alcohol. After that, some hints of chocolate, cherry, and leather, then on to a strawberry jelly fruit bomb. I am sure it will be much ... Read More

    Wine review by puhnner


  • Ian Cauble often has interesting wines at his Somm Select site. Today's offering really hit home for me, since I've had it several times locally, and have hiked, climbed, driven, dived, sailed and boated the coast he describes many times before. Fell in love with the area, including Furore (named after the 'furor' of the waves on the rocks), lon... Read More

    Forum post in the topic What have you bought lately?


  • Things are looking up for a niche wine company. Earlier this month kosher wine and spirits producer L'CHAIM signed a contract with Italian distributor Enovation Brands, a move which experts have said will further the mission of both companies to provide “innovative solutions” for adult beverage consumers. “We reached a stage where we needed a st...

    From the article Kosher Wine Partners With International Distributor


  • Hey DV - didn't mean to sound like an argument with you - I know you're too much of a realist to buy into some hooey.But look at what even Jamie says - Many of the big brands that have become such a feature of modern wine retail are made in factory-like wineries in huge quantities—and almost to a recipe, in terms of their flavour profile.But exa...
