  • 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 ...

  • Corison Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2009


    Chalky and earthy on the nose with subtle vanilla oak shadings framing focused, spicy cabernet fruit all curranty and blueberry toned. This smells like old school Napa cabernet. Light and a bit austere on entry with crisp, earth red fruits on the palate and a smooth integrated mouthfeel thats built as much on acid as it is on tannins. The fruit ... Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz

  • From my friend Hardy Wallace who is the wine maker for Dirty & Rowdy Family Winery. JD will remember when Hardy worked for Cathy Corison and we stopped by for a pretty cool tasting. But I digress... Hardy said in the email that he would be at Corison today and that if I was I the area it would behoove me to pay him a visit.I have been in the rig... Read More

  • So I am going to Napa tomorrow for a few days.  I have some prearranged plans that cannot be changed, but have some limited  time for tasting.As "napagirl", I should already know exactly where to go.  The problem is, I get stuck into that rut of going to the ones I like, the old faves, over and over.  I would love to hear your recommendations an...

  • Who else is still drinking the 1996 California cabs?  I had yet another bottle on Memorial Day and loved it.  Altamura '96 was lovely. Previously I've loved the 1996 BV GdLatour.  As we know, 1997 amazed people but has largely faded early. Two questions:1. Which of the 2000s vintages will age like the 96s have done so gracefully?2. Which 1996s i... Read More

  • So, I was at a pre-performance dinner before an opera this weekend and a fellow diner/patron told me that her household is in love with a wine named Checkerboard. I've read a little on the interwebs and so far it sounds good. I was wondering if any of you Snoothers had tried this stuff and could provide any feedback.What does it most clearly com... Read More

  • ...if your only affiliation is knowing the people involved, is it? Well, I'd shill for Hardy any time because he's just a great person.For that undiscovered new winery that is quickly becoming discovered check out Dirty and Rowdy Family Winery. JD will remember Hardy from our stop at Corison last year. For an opportunity to experience great wine... Read More

  • Elsewhere you can read about the offline I attended with OT and GdP and a bunch of winemakers, winelovers, and the like.  But on the way there, I think I solved a major problem with California wine; over conversation with GdP and an assistant winemaker from Napa, my belief was confirmed.I read in an obituary of Aldo Conterno that he had come to ...
