  • That malbec story sounds like a marketing ploy.  Starting with Richard ... for a pittance.  The Catena Alta is still $45 (or $30 in the US) and not $12.  Before you run and buy a case, do some homework.  Maybe this wine is good, and for $16 (US) it should be.  Is it a $90 wine?  I doubt i Read More

  • USA Values?  I strongly believe that the optimal "Cellaring Worthy" USA Wines for the value lye in Sonoma County Pinot Noirs.. 2012 Gobble them up... Pisoni, Rosella's, Gary's. Keefer Ranch, Cargassaci.. possible @ 45-90 USD$$Vineyard Specific; Vintage Specific (SLH and SRH and Sonoma Coast or Russian River)  Pinot's are Value and Worthy in my o... Read More

  • 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 ...

Subtle, low and soft on entry with slowly building richness of blueberry and cherry pie flavors rolling across the palate followed by some sweet oak spice and a hint of vanilla. This is supple and yet juicy, round and lacking a bit of focus in the mo... Read More
