  • Celebrating the return of our master bath after 6 weeks. Out with the big tub (we used it once in 17 years), tired cabinetry and white tiled floor. In with a tiled double shower with sprays, heated 20" tile floor, new granite countertops and a new commode with one of those cool seats that slowly closes when you put the lid down. Put a couple t-b...

  • In a world where extremes are becoming the paradigms for perfection its a little surprising that one doesn’t hear much of the wines of Saxony. Strike that. One doesn’t hear anything about these wines. And that is not surprising because the production is tiny and the wines almost all consumed locally. But you should be hearing about these wines, ...

  • I’ve been through this so many times before that it becomes rote. The differences between Pinot Gris and Pinot Grigio. Well, there really aren’t any, when we are referring to the grapes. One is the name in French while the other is the name in Italian. When it comes to the wines though, there remains some distinction, though that is disappearing... Read More

  • I was recently in Oregon, for the annual International Pinot Noir Celebration, which is a splendid reason to visit Oregon’s wine country, though you don’t need such motivation to be wowed by what you’ll find in McMinnville and the surrounding areas. While tons of Pinot were in fact tasted and consumed during that long weekend, today I want to ta... Read More

  • So when it's Saturday in our house, we open some fun stuff. Started out with the latest wine club venture - Roederer Estate L'Ermitage Brut 2005.  Extremely nice Mendocino bubbles, dry and crisp with just the slightest hint of apricot. Then grilled some salmon and yellow squash and opened a 2010 Walter Hansel Pinot. This pinot is big and lively ... Read More

  • Walter Hansel Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley the North Slope Vineyard 2010


    Big and lovely Russian River Pinot. Layers of dark fruit, allspice, stewed prunes, lively mouth watering acidity, a touch of smoke on the nose, chewy fine grained tannins and a fairly long finish. Read More

    Wine review by vin0vin0

  • I’m often asked what my favorite wines are. Just today I was asked what “Which wine would an expert like you suggest for a hot summer?” No fooling. I replied “I'd drink a white wine, something light and crisp like Assyrtiko from Santorini in Greece, Vinho Verde from Portugal, or Vernacchia or Orvieto from Italy.” All great choices and certainly ...

  • Kellerei St. Magdalena Weissburgunder Alto Adige Italy 2012


    Green fruit, fig and quince hit the nose along with beautiful floral and river stone accents with just a hint of beeswax and suggestions of smoke emerging with air. Big and fairly bold in the mouth, this delivers tons of rich fruit, showing a slightly sweet side to the fig, tart apple and Asian pear flavors. Theres great energy though, due to t... Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz

  • Last week I published reviews of some varied roses currently on the market. At the same time as I tasted those wines I also tasted these examples. I’ve chosen to publish the results separately for two reason. First off there is the pricing issue, the Pinot Noir Based examples were simply much more expensive than all the rest, and there there was... Read More
