The unique cool climate of the Carneros district has drawn grape growers and winemakers to the appellation since the 1830s. And though their grape vines reigned the rolling hills of the north shore of San Francisco Bay for decades, phylloxera and Prohibition eventually forced these early Carneros growers to plant fruit trees where their vines had once prevailed, and raise cattle and sheep that could mow the pastures clean. Ironic or fitting - carneros is the Spanish word for sheep. – Description from Kursulla

  • I need some help finding a under $15 Merlot.  For years my go-to Merlot was Clos du Bois North Coast because it had soft tannins, lush red/dark fruit and a silky mouthfeel/finish.  The '12 and '13 vintages had a spice component that I didn't like so Merlot, hasn't been in my lineup.  I recently tried an Old World Merlot, Clos de la Moriette, whi...

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • Well we are back from the Glen Ellen/Kenwood trip. We found a few wines we liked, and enjoyed exploring the area. Since I am a big pinot person, especially RRV or sonoma coast, I knew I wasn't necessarily in the heart of that area of Sonoma,  But since it had been so long since I visited this area, we decided to give it a go.We stopped first in ...
