Good kiwi Sauvignon Tasted in club by 14 participants, compared to four other Sauvignon. What the tasters have thought: Nose plant (a little cat pee), almost a little mineral and smoke. Also hints of butter. Even a little bread wet. On the palate, the ...

I've been really bad about posting updates on the house. Structurally, we are finished, and all the walls are painted and floors finished. We have stairs, about to have our big Tansu thing in the middle of them, And we've got a dining room that seats twenty pretty easily. Maybe more. (Didn't OT say all that garden building was making him lose ... Read More
There’s nothing quite like having wine friends. After all, our mutual topic of interest is a social lubricant. But there’s so much more to it, as Snooth’s recent blogger trip will attest. Earlier this month we had the opportunity to explore one of the country’s oldest and up-and-coming wine regions: Lodi, California. It still amazes me that a si... Read More

Petite Sirah has the stuffing to hold up to extended oak aging. It can also be made in a lighter, fruit-forward, early drinking style. As a result, a survey of current release Petite Sirah from several producers might easily span four or more vintages. The wines selected for you below, all current releases from Northern California, run from 2009... Read More
Where you drink wine can be important. An overheated or too noisy room or city stress can downgrade the pleasures of even a very good wine. Conversely, tranquility that allows you to focus on what’s in your glass can upgrade even a so-so sipper. What if you could leave behind all aspects of external civilization, even connectivity to all signal... Read More
After graduating from medical school and before beginning indentured service as a resident physician, my wife and I decided we should make a trip out to California wine country and Yosemite. So, a week after moving to my new residency location, we pawned off the two year old on the grandparents and headed for the hills of California.We arrived i... Read More
Last week I began my summer time look at Zinfandel by focusing on Mendocino and lake counties, two regions that have limited presence in the Zin lovers mind. Today I'm taking a different tact and focusing instead on lodi, a veritable Zin lovers paradise.Why you ask?Well simply put it's a region that not only has a great climate for Zinfandel, wi...

I was fortunate to be able to attends last weeks ZAP Experience. As you might know this year’s event differed from those in years past as the event was broken down into additional components. The trade and media portion of the Experience is now a discreet tasting, and the grand tasting has been broken out into sections, that took place on the g... Read More
Recently I was pleasantly surprised by a visit to Lodi, California. Long the source of well-priced, consumer friendly wines, not to mention the boost they give many of our favorite national brands, Lodi continues to work mostly off the center stage of wine in the USA. There are many reasons for this of course, from consumer preferences to the gr... Read More
All this Wine talk over the passed couple days (yes mylady Amour and James it's all your fault LOL) gave me a sudden urge to check my wine cellar and, low and behold, I still had 3 bottles of Barolo I had bought (if I recall correctly from Royal Coffee in Pattaya) 4 or 5 years ago.For some strange reason I really quite felt in the mood for a nic...
