So, in an effort to return to being more of a presence here I'll start posting some new threads. I'm also going on vacation, I know imagine that, so I may not be able to answer everyday next week, but I'm gonna try.What was your wine(s) of the year?I'm digging through my notes to find mine. I have several lined up, a few of which will be rolled ... Read More
Just a quick posting on a tasting we did last week. We've been celebrating our tenth anniversary, and I stockpiled 2001s. Good thing it was a strong vintage in so many places. Of course, the 2001 Gran Reservas from Rioja are, in some cases, just hitting the market and are terrific values. We celebrated with a bottle we bought in the first cou... Read More
On a warm June day I was lost on the winding roads of Canon-Fronsac, an appellation on Bordeaux’s Right Bank. When I finally turn up more than an hour late at Château Moulin-Pey-Labrie, owner Grégoire Hubau makes a few witty digs about wine critics rarely finding their way to this little-known region. We head for his cellar, hung with amusing po... Read More
Greetings all,I have just returned from Shanghai, where I was invited to be a judge at the Shanghai International Wine Challenge. Actually, I was called in for a judge who could not make it... But it was a thrilling experience, which you can read about on my website, with plenty of pics.In the meantime, I have had time to reflect on my time that... Read More
Interesting article from the Rare Wine Co. on a little history of the region, ageability, and pricing of older Rioja's.http://blog.rarewineco.com/?p=1217 Read More
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... Read More
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... Read More
