  • Saw this story about Antonio Galloni leaving the Wine Advocate.  (I first saw it somewhere else, but this was the easiest one to link to today.)  I haven't got any particular sense of what Galloni likes, although one kind of assumes that Parker would hire someone somewhat in his own image if he was planning to turn over some of the areas Bob has...

    Wine review by Barberolo

  • As a Californian, I have felt the loss of such old names as Almaden, Christian Brothers and Inglenook.  (OK, I guess Almaden still exists as a mocking shell of its former being.  OK, I know it never was great, but their bottles did have corks.  Maybe I am the only person who feels a sense of loss of Almaden.)  Another of the old abused names is ...

  • Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc 2011


    Cut grass, passion fruit and a little grapefruit come together on the nose with some poblano and gooseberry top notes. Rich, quite ripe and large scaled with big grapefruit and light passion fruits in the mouth. Zesty acids, good length and nice, pithy though sweet juicy citrus flavors. 86pts Read More

  • Dog Point Sauvignon Blanc Section 94 Single Vineyard 2010


    Very complex on the nose with notes of smoky flint, dried chili, roast chili, a hint of sulfur, and more vegetal notes. A bit of green bean, green pea.

    Bright, ripe sweet, bit of cocoa, bit of animal, purer raspberry type fruit. Round yet direct, very fine fruit character, ripe raspberry, nice earthy, forest floor, a bit dense, tight, good length, earthy red berry fruit on the finish, fine ripeness to the tannins, good succulent, dark fruit, earthy, tight, nice fruit density.

  • Dog Point Pinot Noir Marlborough 2009


    Meaty, cut cherry, bit of tar and mint. Nice weight, decent clarity, a touch chunk, wild berry fruit, a nice bit of stemminess, touch loose and dilute though with fine flavor, not a great finish, a bit dry, lean, perhaps a little minerally but lacks brightness, flavors are excellent. Read More
