So, I finally re-introduced myself to Zinfandel. I bought a half bottle of Seghesio Sonoma '12. I decantered it for 1 hour and ate it with spaghetti w/tomato-basil sauce. The wine was dominated by the alcohol -- 14.8% -- and while I tasted black fruit and a very interesting roasted sage note on the mid-palate, the alcohol drive of the wine ma... Read More
It being earth day tomorrow I thought this would be a fine time to explore attitude towards the whole organic/natural/biodynamic movement. I reached out to some wine professionals to get their opinions about these wines, but before I turn the stage over to them I’d like to explore the situation briefly.Before we consider the value of these wines...

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... Read More
NG, if you want to hand me that bottle in about two weeks, I'll be in your neighborhood for my daughter's gymnastics competition. I'll pay what you and I both paid, even though I recall a horror story about the delivery truck driving around during the hot summer days. I liked that bottle--drank two of them and wished I had more. It's the most... Read More
I get it. Not all of us have the time to research wine. Diving into the details to find that perfect bottle. No, for many of us buying wine this time of year is just something we have to do. It’s not that you don’t love wine, it’s simply that there isn’t the time, or the impetus to spend inordinate amounts of time deciding, and searching for wha... Read More

So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot. Here's my opening proposal: We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly. This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend... Read More
So I am sneaking away to Sonoma for a few days. I have spent tons of time up in RRV and Sebastopol, and I think I want to revisit the lower valley this time- Kenwood, Glen Ellen... I would love recommendations for wineries, hotels, motels, vac. rentals, and restaurants. Sonoma proper would be ok to stay, as is close to those areas. Plan on h... Read More
