Port wine. Is it what your granny might drink? Well one of the many charms of Port is that the last bottle I tasted was harvested, vinified and put in a barrel way before my granny (may she rest in peace) was even born. Actually, I’m not sure my great-...Read more »

I mentioned this a while ago, but didn't get around to the post. We stayed from September to end of December at a condominium in a complex built in the '70s. They've renovated and rebuilt since then (there were several major lawsuits for construction defects--built on fill!), but the architecture and the vibe is still very of that period. Our u...

I will be graduating in a couple of weeks and I figure it is a good opportunity to buy my first batch expensive bottles since normally i dont exceed $25 in my tasting.Since it is my graduation, excessive drinking is likely to take p...

In 2004, the movie Sideways put a major dent in California Merlot sales when Miles uttered the immortal words “I am not drinking fucking Merlot!” At that point there were a lot of ripe, insipid Merlots on the market—many grown in areas that were too hot for the grape to ripen slowly, gaining full physiological maturity—so Miles’ sentiments reson...

There hasn't been one of these threads here in quite some time so I thought I'd start it up again. Weather is warm here so I popped a Rosé.What are you drinking? Read More
Vinho Porto, Porto, or simply Port is a fortified wine produced solely in Portugal’s Douro Valley.
