  • Mine started about six years ago when I met my wife.  We played volleyball in an adult league against each other and hit it off at the bar after.  We never drank wine together (only lots of beer) and the subject never came up.  We had been "dating" a few weeks when I invited her over to make us dinner.  She said she would bring a bottle of wine....

  • The wine industry--particularly, I suspect--is rife with celebrities, and others of means who have decided to join in.  Some, hire consultants to make a wine with their name on the label.  Some really go crazy, buy land with or plant new vineyards and build wineries.  Fox mentions F.F. Coppola.  Also from the entertainment world you can add the ... Read More

  • David Bruce Zinfandel Mendocino 1981

    Snoothrank:

    Old and dusty on the nose; not a lot of fruit left here. Spicy with a caramel base, some black pepper, and a hint of black fruit. Smooth with a hint of sweetness on entry and a nice touch of spicy raspberry fruit on the palate. High acid and smoothly textured though not much fruit left and dusty, mineral flavors on the modest finish. Drinkable ... Read More

  • Pinot Noir Anderson Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    This Pinot has won me over. What a terrific bottle, tons of cherries in the mouth, very well balanced and sometimes, if you are lucky WTSO offers this for under $20. I generally find Pinot a bit overpriced for the payoff, but this one is a great exception. Beautifully crafted by the always reliable vintners at David Bruce. Read More

  • David Bruce Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2007

    Dusty cedar powder on the nose with "warm" red and black berry notes. Flavors of black cherry and red berries with an earthiness, hints of nutmeg and a mineral note. Tart berry fruit. Dry. Wood and mineral notes throughout. Nice. 88 pts. Read More
