Really smooth drinking wine. Wanted a bit more fruit, which is why only 4 stars but great balance.

At first was only 3 stars, but improved after 15 minutes in the glass. Nose had cedar, cherry and olives. Viscous and chalky in mouth, with notes of pepper. Finish was maybe a little too tight. This wine may drink better next year.

Wow, a punch of dark fruit and elegance! Fragrant nose, very intriguing, floral with black cherries, velvet like, silky elegance of big time pleasure. This has mellowed out and has become such a refined beauty since the UGCB. The initial entry for the ...

With the celebration of our Independence right around the corner, we are all set to celebrate. This is after all one of the great parties of the year for of us. Historically it was fun and easy to recommend "America's Indigenous Grape" aka Zinfandel as the go to wine for Fourth of July celebrations, but that ultimately meant recommending a wine ... Read More
Yesterday we were lucky enough to attend a barrel sample Fall Release Preview Picnic at the Bedrock Vineyard in Sonoma. A typical beautiful Sonoma County day with temps hovering in the low 90's. We were treated with a great selection of food and wines. The invitation encouraged us to bring something we wanted to share so lots of other interestin... Read More
JD, this is especially funny considering our brief conversation about my idea for a post comparing your favorite rock stars to wines. (Tom Petty = CdR or some Vin da Tavola, Dylan is Burgundy, sometimes great, often inscrutable; Leonard Cohen is Cru Classe Burgundy, never bad, often brilliant...)So will the threads about Rimmerman elsewhere tra...

It's Fremont, and it's near the Mission San Jose school district, so there are probably some Chinese families here, definitely some Vietnamese as well, but the biggest Asian population here is probably Indian, so it's a big mystery. What's really strange is that it looks like it was made for the Portugese buyer-- the little emblem that says "Be... Read More
I was recently transferred to an office in Fremont, CA, which is like a prison sentence in my work, so how do I entertain myself? I scout out new wine stores. And, thanks to Yelp, I found this really cool market that specializes in all things Portugese. It's no secret I love Spanish wine, and my experience with Portugese so far has been that i... Read More

I'm a lucky wine gal, indeed. I spent Valentine's Day sipping Oregon wine at the Ram's Head Bar inside Timberline Lodge, watching the clouds form and dissipate like a roller coaster around the 11,245 foot high peak of Oregon's Mt. Hood. Sipping wine while watching the clouds work their magic was actually just the beginning of a day—and evening—f... Read More
My husband and I were given a bottle of the 2007 as a gift. We had never been great fans of red wine, let alone Pinot Noir....until we tasted this wine. We are not wine afficiandos, but this is the best red of any that we have ever tasted. Wish we could find some in Northern CA. to buy! I wold rate it 10 stars! Read More
I'm thinking about taking a short trip to Piemonte, mainly to try the highly-reputed wines of the region. I'm not interested, though, in setting up visits to wineries. What I am thinking of doing is going to Slow Food recommended restaurants in Piemonte, and asking the owners or staff to help me select a wonderful wine from the region and the... Read More
