  • Almost fruity by design, because that’s what we know you like. The natural, slightly bitter character of Malbec is being obscured, in those examples that through clonal selection, cropping, or vintage character still display it. In its place we’re increasingly finding the fruit that consumers have grown to expect from their wines. Not enough fru... Read More

  • Hi!My great love is Burgundy, red and white, let's say from the permier Cru and Grand Cru level. Germany: ther I love dry white Rieslings, priced about 20 - 30 USD: About Portugal: surely vintage port (2011 was a knockout vintage and still priced quite reasonably (but not cheap, let's say 90 $), futher, there are very good wines from the Douro v...

  • While we may have doubted it would actually arrive, springtime weather has now descended on much of the country, forgiving for a moment that dump of snow Long island’s east end received yesterday. Much anticipate, and of course much appreciated after the brutal months long deep freeze we’ve endured, spring is of course a time of renewal.We all h... Read More

  • I recently spent a few days in Piedmont getting a head start on my annual look at the latest vintage releases, which in this case are the very highly touted 2010s in Barolo. While the vintage is shaping up to be special, two thoughts did occur to me. The first was that these are generally not user friendly wines. They are tough, a bit mean, lack... Read More

  • Just back from my first ProWein and I can't help but want to share my experiences. It's a packed three day event with more to do than any single person can possibly manage. 8 halls, 4,800 exhibitors, dozens of seminars everyday. It's exhausting, but at the same time one of the greatest experiences and opportunities for any wine professional. I m... Read More

  • My condolences also.  Sadly, this wine should have been enjoyed with your parents at a much earlier time.  I think the writers above have the right idea.  Open one;  if it's good, invite friends who knew your parents over, and drink the rest with them as a nice memory.  Even if the first is good, there are no guarantees on wine this old and with...

  • Of course, Emark.  Who can afford them?  That's the point I'm trying to make.  I think there's lots of quality--that '89 Jaboulet Hermitage that David Parker brought to dinner was great--but are they worth it? Here's the total of my N. Rhone holdings:Pretty much all "value" bottles.  The Cote-Roties probably set me back under $50, which is basic... Read More

  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...
