  • Thought this was an interesting mailer I'd share with you all. Already forwarded the e-mail to Fox as he is one of the few champions of Dolcetto that I know. This would also fit in well with the "weekday wines" thread. Fox and I agreeing it's a good week day pasta night wine, or even a 1st wine in a flight of Northern Italian Reds. To all Best W...

  • It's funny, I almost ordered a Giuseppe Mascarello dolcetto, just because we had met with Mauro Mascarello  on the trip.  (I have pix to prove it!) But I wasn't in the mood for dolcetto when we got there and most of the wine Mauro poured for us had been open, so it didn't show well.  He did open fresh Nebbiolo for us, including a Ca d'Morrissio,...

  • We tried six wines at a free Whole Foods wine tasting event last night, and three were quite tasty so we bought one of each.  The tasting started with an El Perro Verde Rueda, which has Verdejo grapes from the Rueda plateau in north-central Spain.  I sensed grapefruit and other citrus flavors with this one and it's one of the three we selected. ...

  • Today's article is a bit of an anomaly for these pages: it speaks neither of wine nor food, but rather of a very important tool: the grill. The idea of grilling season may be somewhat limited on an intellectual level, but on an emotional level, breaking out the grill for the first time can elicit the same joy that the first daffodils and crocus ...

  • Chardonnay is a pain in my ass. Really it is. I’ve mentioned it before, and it’s worth mentioning again. When I lead staff tastings in retail the Chardonnay days were the only one we all feared. Why you ask? Too many wines smell of old tuna fish cans and taste even worse. OK, that is a slight exaggeration, but the truth is that there is more cra... Read More

  • A lot of it depends on what you want.Wine Advocate was one of the first devoted to rating wines exclusively. Now it's digital and they do summaries of regions, etc. It also used to be Robert Parker only. Now there are other writers.Wine Spectator was smart enough to realize that wine could be treated like a luxury good. There are wine reviews an... Read More

  • In my continuing coverage from this year’s prowein, additional information on which can be found here. I follow up today with a brief peek at one of the world’s greatest wineries, and certainly the greatest wine of Lebanon. You know who I’m talking about.  Of course it is Chateau Musar and their true story of commitment and perseverance. Located... Read More

  • Our little wine dinner was a great success.  We started with the Brut and everyone loved that.  Then we moved on to one of the two bottles they brought over (I wasn't expecting them to bring wine but I wasn't too surprised) - we opened a 2012 Veritas Saddleback Chardonnay from Virginia.  I was impressed with this Chardonnay, which was fermented ...

  • NG & EM - To me the feel of complexity in wine is that I sense more than one flavor, but describing the flavors or layers of flavor/taste as I swish it around my mouth is very hard.  I have a much easier time with pieces of food though.  I don't know why I have such a hard time with a liquid vs a solid.Now I have a rescue cat event to attend ton...
