  • Haven't put up one of these in awhile. This time will make things more specific and real, in that you will need to imagine you're hosting a meal at this restaurant in London's Soho. It's something I did a few times during my period of busy London business visits at the end of the '80s through early last decade. The first time I sweated a bit bec... Read More

  • Can't help find those wines from the past as I didn't drink them, but ... for example, makes orange Muscat. Kiona in Washington makes sweet wine. BV makes a sweet dessert wine. If you're near a trader Joe's, you might try IPSUS Pantelleria Passito. It's not made like Sauternes, but it's sweet and not too bad - tastes a little like sweet peache... Read More

    A recent Naked Wines selection. Floats a pale, pale silver in the Glass. Opens with almost an off-dry Reisling - baking yeast and spice with hints of Peach and Pear; moves on to Herbs, Earth, and Cumin?; the wet Evergreen, Moss, and Kiwi. Off-dry, light, but rounded mouthful, with a nice little kick of Acidity. Smooth long finish of polished r... Read More

All of the fruit is from Clarksburg, California. White peach aromas light up the nose. The palate is stuffed with a bevy of fresh and dried apricot flavors as well as hints of crème fraiche. Mesq...
