  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • On Tuesday I wrote with great pleasure about a group of Cabernets that were right about $25 a bottle, some less. They represented much of what I look for in Cabernet, and at an affordable price. Today I turn my sights to wines that promise much more. At least they are priced in such a way as to promise much more, not that they always deliver.  T... Read More

  • It’s always a good time to be talking about Chardonnay, but never better than now. As we lead into the holidays many will be faced with making the daunting choice of bringing a bottle or two to dinner. It’s a perilous responsibility fraught with potential for disaster, but it doesn’t have to be. When in this position stop trying to be the hero a... Read More

  • Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most popular and widely planted red grape varietals in the world. Part of its attraction is that it has a distinctive and very recognizable taste no matter where it is grown—which is perhaps why today we can find it in just about any wine growing region which is reasonably warm. According to Jose Vouillamoz, a bo...

  • Alta Napa Valley "Oso Malo" Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

    Snoothrank:

    A small production (approx. 220 cases). This is a Fabulous Cabernet Value that will hang with the higher priced competition (Many of the $50-90 over-priced Cabs). A sweet candy like nose. Medium bodied with a ruby purple reddish color. A Cab that is concentrated and focused. Sweet fruit, blackberry, blueberry, violet well integrated fruit, oak a... Read More

  • From the Daily Beast a few days ago. Was waiting to see if someone else would post, but guess I have to do it.  ;-)  Marijuana-Laced Wine Grows More Fashionable in California Wine CountryApr 14, 2012 4:45 AM EDT Wines fermented with weed were a novelty in the early 1980s, but now quite a few California winemakers are producing cannabis cuvées on...

  • With yesterday’s official beginning of summer, it's about time I take a look at some of the white wines we will all be reaching for over the coming months. I know it’s really easy to harsh on Chardonnay, everyone does it -- yours truly included -- but the truth is there's plenty of excellent Chardonnay floating around in today’s market. Some of ...

  • Bodega Septima Red Blend 2005

    Snoothrank:

    There I was in the Parilla Pena, my favorite grill in BA, with three friends, when I discovered Septimo Dia. Parilla Pena (pronounced Pen-ya) is a legendary lunch favorite for Portenos who are lawyers, judges and businessmen, cause the courts are close by. It is special, amazing and not a tourist trap. Every November and December I go and rent a... Read More

  • Paso Robles Trip Notes:I went to Paso Robles over the weekend of the 26th of September. I had intended to be there three days, but something came up and I was only there for Sat and part of Sun, so I ended up getting to just a small selection of places. But I could have been there a week and still not gone everywhere I wanted to go! I will re... Read More
