  • I have always been a bit bewildered with posted tasting notes that mention descriptors that I have never heard of (e.g. Calcite); mention things that I have no interest in tasting ( e.g. Tar) or mention the ability to differentiate and taste in that wine various types of fruits or flowers that are very similiar in taste or smell. These kinds of ... Read More

  • Let's break it down.1. Most people are bad writers.2. People who write about wine are a subset of most people.3. It is unlikely that only the best writers are interested in wine.4.

  • I know what you’re thinking: When are we gonna start drinking wine? We’re getting closer, I promise you, but today I just want to run through some of the pros and cons of different styles of glassware!After getting your wine out of the bottle (and perhaps into a decanter) at the proper temperature, serving it in the proper glass is probably the ...

  • Castello Sonnino Chianti Montespertoli Castello di Montespertoli 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Full-bodied, very smooth with a "spice" or kick to it that is a little foreign to the palate when you think of Chianti. Not the most complex wine in the world, but interesting enough to linger with you long after your glass is empty. Highly acidic but extremely refreshing in every sense of the word. I cannot speak to the older vintages, but I wa... Read More

    Wine review by spence93


  • As I sat with Josh Jensen in his winery office at Calera, we looked down at SLH and Mr. Jensen called it what I have always thought it should be called:  The Santa Lucia Lowlands.

Knowing that Mik... Read More

  • Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year.  With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year.  And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win...

  • To celebrate the. Buck hanging in my garage from this morning' hunt, I decided to be brave and saber the 25 year old Cooks that was recently found in my basement. Yep Cooks, you heard that correct. Plenty of pressure and a clean break. Nice bubbles and a golden almost not quite pinkish hue. Very earthy with a hint of cranberry. I like it. Cheap ... Read More
