  • My neighbors and I have a mutual love of wine, and have had several tasting parties which we've enjoyed a lot.  We did a blind one, and a non-blind one of very different world varieties.  We usually get bottles in about the 20-30 range, although that's flexible, especially going lower for the blind tasting.For this next one, I was thinking of do...

  • So here's a little project I've been kicking around to no end.The idea is simple, what are the top 10 wines in any region that remain affordable and really deliver exceptional experiences?I know there are so many varaibles here but a list of 10 is large enough to account for the variables.So let me start by defining affordable. I would say, in t... Read More

  • My fiance and I are planning our first trip to Napa /Sonoma for our Honeymoon the first week of March. We don't have much planned yet, so would like some advice. Currently, we have a B&B in Healdsburg booked for the last 4 days of the trip...which just so happens to coincide with the first Russian River Wine Road Barrel Tasting of the year. So e... Read More

  • No seriously- I did.  Was the 2006 Chateau de Bel-Air, Lalande-de-Pomerol, 2006.Here "enlinked" is the review.  I got to pour it for an in-store tasting, which is always interesting because one gets to really follow the evolution of the wine over a period of hours rather than make a judgement on a single sip within said evolution- and this one's...

  • I've gotten a lot of flack for some of my opinions about these 2007 Bordeaux. While there certainly are many poor 2007s, the vintage is not a complete wash-out. It really depends a bit on what a person is looking for. 2007 Bordeaux, at their worst, exhibit bitter unripe tannins and dominant, green vegetal flavors, but is there more to this vinta...

  • The trend over the past decade or so in Bordeaux (and around the globe) has been towards bigger, darker, fruitier wines. There have been many means to this end: Better clonal selection in the vineyards, lower yields, improved viticultural practices, cold soaking of fruit before fermentation, and mechanical intervention.Much of this work allows o...

  • I was fortunate to be invited to the Weekend of Grand Amateurs tasting in Bordeaux this past month, and while I do indeed look forward to tasting the much-heralded 2009s in such a format, this year's focus was the less acclaimed -- and often maligned -- 2007 vintage.2007 is a vintage defined by its weather, in more ways than one. Not only does t... Read More

  • What's the worst wine you have ever had? I had some Don Luciano Shiraz over the weekend (which is a $4.00 wine I picked up at Wal-Mart...just to see). I had had the Don Luciano Chardonnay and it was OK, but the Shiraz I had smelled like road kill (very heavy sulfur)--I wonder if I got a bad bottle.  Has anyone else tried it? Read More

  • Not, I repeat not, a thread about whether the 2009 Bordeaux is great, but more about whether you trust the reviews. After the 2009 en primeur week, the opinion is unsurprisingly about a brilliant "vintage of the decade". I think this is the 3rd in the last 10 years n'est-ce-pas? So do we need to review how we review the en primeur? Do you trust ... Read More
