Back in 1995, when Victoria and I started dating in Des Moines, our favorite game was “Guess the Wine.” We would take turns bringing a blind wine and make the other person guess the varietal and region. When I look back on those dates, there is little mystery about how we arrived where we are today. Soon after that, we moved to Minneapolis and fell in with a group of wine lovers whose passion and knowledge fanned our flame. We started taking regular trips to wine country in California, where we met many of the finest winemakers. We were so inspired by them that to this day we follow many of their principles. We learned first-hand about Philip Togni’s attention to every minute detail…. Saw how Bob Foley would only pick fruit if his palate -- not some lab test -- told him it was time… Heard Greg La Follette telling us how careful you have to be when making decisions in the winery because even the smallest decision has an impact on the final wine. Our conversations still reverberate with me whether Read more »

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • Carnivores and grillers, a few reasons to love Syrah: it’s a fantastic wine for pairing with any roasted meats, especially red meats like beef and lamb, as well as wild game. It is often peppery and sometimes smoky, with a roasted fruit and/or roasted meat flavor profile that makes it a fine accompaniment to anything barbecued or grilled (even, ... Read More

    I tasted the barrel sample of this Napa Valley Premiere auction lot, the only red wine Bevans made thus far at Chateau Boswell. It will be released in September/October of this year to the buyer, Total Wine & More, which paid $625/bottle. Its a deeply concentrated wine, opaque in the glass with aromas rising well above the rim. The palate is imp... Read More

  • In my daily travels I pass through the Napa Valley every Monday. A few weeks ago I asked Mike Smith a question about yeast for Sauv Blanc and he invited me to stop by and check out some of his new vintage before it went into bottle shock. Today was the day so I stopped by his cellar at Envy Wines in Calistoga. One of the more personable, down to... Read More

  • Bevan Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville the Bab's Showket Vineyards 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Quite different than the '07 or '08, the wine is rich, opulent and concentrated with a the primary emphasis on fruit. As always though the tannins are significant but soft and supple. I tried this at the winery only 3 weeks after bottling and it was already drinking spectacularly. Read More
