Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon is considered one of the blue chip Napa Valley ... Read More

  • . . . and, boy, are my arms tired.I don't know when I first heard the term "Super Tuscan."  I'm guessing that it was 10-12 years ago.  I really did not know what it meant--me being very focussed on my California world.I did, of course, learn that a Super Tuscan was a wine that was made from grapes that were outside the Tuscany tradition--specifi...

  • I was asked by a fellow snoother to write a bit about Norton wines after I had expressed some opinions regarding same in another forum thread. So in an effort to comply and, for what it's worth, share my humble knowledge of the subject, I present the following:I moved to Missouri in 1994 after having lived the prior ten years in Sonoma County, C...

  • I recently visited two wineries on a trip through Kentucky and into Indiana. Over the weekend my wife and I stayed at a nice B and B in the Ohio River Valley in Southern Indiana.
