So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot. Here's my opening proposal: We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly. This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend... Read More
Wanting to refresh my memory on certain French vintages in the Rhône Valley I came across (as I often do) the Robert Parker Vintage Chart. Parker includes vintages from 1970 through 2010 on his website and scores them on the usual 100 point scale. He claims that scores of 70-79 are "average" while those of 80-89 are "above average to excellent... Read More
Paso Robles Trip Notes: West of PasoThis was a trip my wife and I had planned with another couple months in advance. None of us had spent any time in Paso before, and the anticipation was very high indeed. It seemed the more I read about the area and its wine scene, the more I gained the impression that the West side of town (from just north of ... Read More

You can find their great wines at Vin Debut in West Portal, San Francisco and at the Ferry Plaza Merchants in Embarcadero.
I've just returned from the International Malbec Days in Cahors, a festival meant to elevate the profile of "original" Malbec, and offer insight into the relationship between old world and new world expressions of the varietal.I'll be writing more about both the trip and the region, but for now, I wanted to offer highlights. I had limited exposu... Read More
Not, I repeat not, a thread about whether the 2009 Bordeaux is great, but more about whether you trust the reviews. After the 2009 en primeur week, the opinion is unsurprisingly about a brilliant "vintage of the decade". I think this is the 3rd in the last 10 years n'est-ce-pas? So do we need to review how we review the en primeur? Do you trust ... Read More
I just can't help but feel like both WA and WS are rating wines higher then they have in the past. These thoughts are coming from my true love in wine, Barolo. I remember reading reviews on wines from 1996, 1998, 1999, 2001 (all great vintages) and for some of the best producers in that region I would see scores of 90 - 94 for some of the best... Read More
My husband and I have put ourselves on a budget (considering the state of the economy) and are trying to only buy wines for $13 and under. Anyone out there have a favorite that fits that price in mind? Read More
Weird title right?Who pulls Beaujolais from the cellar you might ask. Well I do but I can't say I'm a leader in that field. In fact several of my friends have rather varied assortments of Beaujolais resting in the deep recesses of their cellars and through their generosity I have come to know the wonder of aged Gamay.Wines are strange beasts, th...

When a notion gets into Brad Kanes head, he can become extremely insistent about it. He loves planning themed tastings. Verticals, horizontals, vertizontals, transversals, metarregionals... So, for a few months hed been e-nailing about a dinner with 1970 Riojas in Manhattan. I liked the idea, so all I had to do was plan a trip back to New York a... Read More
