  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.When you find a nice wine tha...

  • Esteemed wine critics like Robert Parker and Antonio Galloni employ gender-positive terms in their tasting notes without compunction. Masculine wines are commonly associated with structure and power, while feminine wines can be perceived as delicate and thin. Speaking about a trip to the Bandol region in the Financial Times, wine writer Jancis R... Read More

  • 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

  • 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
