  • Friuli (or more properly Friuli Venezia Giulia) lies in Italy’s northeastern corner. Protected from the northern winds by the Austrian and Slovenian Alps, Friuli’s climate is tempered by the Adriatic. The winemakers of this area have a reputation of being forward thinking and producing excellent white wines -- reds account for just under 40%. Tr... Read More

  • Liver what? It’s that great wine region you’ve never heard of. Less than an hour from San Francisco. A growing wine scene based on a century and a half of history. Great climate, friendly people, tasting rooms that are not filled to capacity with people you don’t want to be rubbing shoulders with. You know, one of those regions that is truly up ... Read More

  • Not only is Cabernet Sauvignon the most popular red wine, it’s also one that is best suited to gift giving. It’s a wine that everyone knows and understands. Big, rich and bold, it’s the archetype of red wines that is perfect for the cooler months that lie ahead. While Cabernet does get a bit of a bad rap as being ubiquitous, that doesn’t mean th...

  • With just a few days to go before my departure for Piedmont, I was thrilled to have been able to join in Antonio Galloni’s brilliant La Festa del Barolo this year. Featuring a tasting of 2008 Barolo, it was perfect timing; a chance for me to revisit this excellent vintage, and to help set the stage for my upcoming tastings from the 2009 vintage.... Read More

  • Had one of those once in a lifetime days betting the ponies today.  With the winnings, i'm probably going to be budgeting up to $1500.00 on some more expensive wines I haven't been able to afford in the $80-$200 range.  Any suggestions?  I favor a right-bank bordeaux style for reds but also enjoy a medium bodied cabernet style, along with rhone ...

  • Archetype Shiraz Barossa Valley 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Severely lacking acid. Nose was jammy. The beginning of this wine was very sweet with a lot of heat. Finishes a little dryer but still too hot. Drink this wine chilled if you have to at all. Read More

  • Zinfandel is an American treasure. There are great old-vine vineyards around the globe that range from Nero d’Avola in Italy to Grenache in Spain and Malbec in Argentina, but only in California can we find the finest examples of Zinfandel. And when the discussion comes around to Zinfandel and experiencing all it has to offer, one is inevitably d... Read More

  • Archetype Vineyards Shiraz Barossa 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Gamy on the nose with a touch of crack pepper accenting a rather composty, vegetal, meaty nose. Theres a touch of volatility here and a bit of a fishy smell as well. Red-fruited up front, then turning a bit darker on the mid-palate with slightly muddy flavors supported by soft tannins and bright acidity, though there is no finish to speak of. 82pts Read More

  • Chardonnay Tasted - October 2010 2007 Freeman Ryo-fu Russian River Valley Chardonnay 14.1% $40 Smells like a bouquet of dried flowers. There’s also a distinct vein of toasty oak here, but the floral quality is distinct, adding nice detail to the rather restrained fruit. This is rich and soft on entry but with plenty of supporting acid. It has a ... Read More
