Clean and bright with dried citrus aromas that are rather fruity on the nose! This shows a lovely texture on the palate. A bit simple and a bit spicy, yet with great energy to the quince and tart apple fruit. It gains some breadth on the palate but rem...

I'm continuing to try to broaden my wine horizons and try a broad spectrum of new wines.I was lucky enough to find a neat store that only sells Italian wines. And holy cow, did this ever open my eyes to a slew of new-to-me grape varieties! I bought a case of wine - most bottles made from grapes I've never heard of. I figure such complex diversit...

With harvest truly getting underway in northern California, up to now it's mostly been early whites and grapes for roses and sparkling wines, masses of enotourists are descending on the northern counties to enjoy them in their glory. While many of us think of wine country as a tourist destination, the truth of the matter is that it is an agricul... Read More
Hello:A bit of a long question, I apologize. I'm trying to train my palate and learn blind tasting by assembling groups of 100% varietal wines that are (supposedly) true representative.Right now I want to assemble a group of wines that will illustrate how to differentiate Argentine Malbec from Carmenere, and pick out similar wines. I don't even ... Read More
Wine is so confusing! I love a good Pinot Blanc, or Pinot Bianco. But what do I love when it's not necessarily a Pinot Blanc? Let me explain. Alsace is unique in France, having created its appellation system by varietal instead of region. Except when they haven't. Alsace Pinot Gris is Pinot Gris, Alsace Riesling is Riesling. But when it comes t... Read More
Pinot Blanc is the lost sibling of the Pinot family.We’re all familiar with Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris, two varieties of wine that get more than their fair share of attention, but what about Pinot Blanc? In theory, though this often tends not to be the case, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris are closely related siblings. The primary difference is that P... Read More
Tried the wines from Natalino Crognaletti at the Real Wine Fair in London and was quite excited about the range. This wine was really interesting with a fresh citrus base and a special mushroomy note on the nose. Well balanced. If you see their 1998 Marche Bianco, grab it without hesitation. It has aged excellently and developed an interesting c... Read More
This Oregon Pinot Blanc was made in the traditional Italian Pinot Bianco style. Crisp with bright acidity, this wine is super refreshing and perfect for warm summer afternoons on the patio. Enticing aromas of grapefruit and pear follow through to the front and mid palate and this finish is all about the citrus fruits. This is one of those extrem... Read More

Just back from a 4 day visit to Italy, the centerpiece of which was several discussions in Asti regarding the recent explosion of interest concerning moscato and how Moscato d'Asti might stay ahead of the curve there. I was actually very surprised to learn that some 83% of Moscato sold in the US is not Italian! Lots of domestic stuff floating ar... Read More
Törggelen: you aren't going to hear it in a VW commercial. It's not useful for sledding down snowy slopes either, though when you think of the Alto Adige, white capped peaks do spring to mind.As foreign as it looks and sounds, the Törggelen tradition is something we all do! In the U.S., autumn means pumpkin picking, drinking apple cider and raki... Read More
