Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year. With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year. And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win... Read More
They've had a hell of a time with it in Burgundy, like a 50-90% lost vintage. Unsure on quality, but it's dubious.What's going on in Napa/Sonoma? I hear Halcon Alturas is a ways away from ripening, but the harvest of whites has been in full effect. When should the Cabernet, and other reds be "ready"?Let's pick now (or soon) I say!Floods and fros... Read More
A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak. I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines... Read More
Hi everyone. This is my first post on the boards. My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit. We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More
It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015. I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits. And the taste?" regarding the... Read More
I've been anxious to try some Windy Oaks NG I'm noticing a lot of people drinking it on Delectable and raving. One of these days!I've been busy the past few weeks helping out at the winery during harvest either on the production side or doing private tastings for Ancillary, Myriad and Carter. It afforded my the opportunity to share in some reall... Read More
This weekend is the Taste of Sonoma/Wine Country Weekend in Sonoma County with events we like to attend and have for the last 5 years or so. This year no tickets :-( but I still got to have a wine related day yesterday.Started out in the AM sampling fruit with my buddy Mike. We started out at Old Lakeville Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap checking o... Read More
I am loving how we are getting to know some of our favorite wine writers in this series of profiles. So far we’ve “met” Ben Carter and Clifford Brown and it’s really been very interesting learning more about these folks. We “know” them from their wine recommendations, social media posts and from their participation in our online events but we re... Read More
Hello,My name is Kim and I just happened across this site tonight and was quite impressed with it. To be as brief as possible, I love wine and would love to learn as much as possible about it, particularly so that I can better contribute to my Facebook page I just started called "For The Love Of Wine." I impulsively decided to start it last ni... 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
