I am drinking a 2013 Porca de Murca, Douro Reserva from Portugal. The wine seems to be fine, clear sight, clean fruity nose, in the beginning its fine on the palate (maybe a lack of fruit compared to the nose)... everything but the finish. It has a weird bitter finish, very unpleasant. Its not the tart taste of tannins (even so it is pretty high... Read More
Update, day 3, part 1I must start this post by saying that I don’t generally gravitate toward Zins, but yesterday’s visits may have helped to change my mind. As wine journalist Randy Caporoso said, there’s a reason why nobody ever tried to pull out these old vines. The fruit they produce is just too good.The day began with visits to four differe...

Day 2 update:I think the biggest takeaway from this trip is going to be...It really AIN’T all about the Zin!In fact, Zin biggots (like you, EMark) are welcome here with opened arms. While Zin is Lodi’s flagship wine, it is not by any means the only grape upon which the region hangs its hat. I’m sure many of you who’ve had a chance to visit or ta... Read More

This topic was only relevant to Thursday as a test case but was subsequently expanded to cover the weekend too. What ever you bring up in this topic should either occur on a Thursday - Sunday, or it could be ... Read More
Last week I began my summer time look at Zinfandel by focusing on Mendocino and lake counties, two regions that have limited presence in the Zin lovers mind. Today I'm taking a different tact and focusing instead on lodi, a veritable Zin lovers paradise.Why you ask?Well simply put it's a region that not only has a great climate for Zinfandel, wi...

It’s strange as I sit here in the same backyard that I grew up in. I feel like that’s not typical these days. People growing up in a house, in a neighborhood, in a culture and being able to sit in that exact same place 30 years later, reflecting on all that happened. Every happy moment, every cut and bruise, every triumph and failure—it’s all he... Read More
Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More
