Down Under

"The popularity of Australian chardonnays, combined with the availability of high quality wine at a super value price, make this is a natural for consumers and the trade." explained Franzia. "Down Under by Crane Lake has a fruit forward, crisp, clean taste in the Australian style." It’s not rocket science: Just good fruit made into a clean, zippy wine with fresh-fruit tastes. Wall Street Journal, July 25, 2009 – Description from ccasel

  • To go off a bit on a tangent since I have your attention lol just wondering if any of you in other parts of the country have any exposure to Finger Lakes sweet garbage such as Catawba, Niagara, Diamond, Cayuga White, Sweet Concord? There are some folks who can't get enough of this, to me they all taste the same but they drive me nuts trying to h... Read More

  • "but, alas, they usually are not available for retail purchase."NG, here's a simple example in your neighborhood. That merchant usually has something interesting at a decent price. I post this one because I've had it on site (meaning on that island, not in some virtual reality). One of my favorite parts of Italy, though there are several of thos... Read More

  • Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More

  • Hard to say what it exactly is, but we've all had moments when wines were really open and "singing" maybe after a quick decant, or hours of air, they just started to open and catch fire. I can think of quite a few wines that stick out in this way, though it seems like a very unpredictable phenomenon. Also, what the heck is going on with wines th... Read More

  • I doubt that current Burgundy makers of any repute would risk shipping grapes in from outside the region to beef up their pinot.  They would get caught too easily and besides, no one drinks the best wines, they just collect them. If they do drink them, buyers have some excuse for why they might fall short.  In any case, vignerons can add sugar o... Read More

  • We opened this 2013 Zinfandel this afternoon after taking a nice walk around the neighborhood.  I liked it more than Sandra did.  She didn't taste any fruit like other zins we've drunk but I thought there was a little fruit in this one.  Anyway, it's not recommended but it was under $20 via the Traveling Vineyard wine distributor so what the hec...

  • Red, it's context:  Pinot is supposed to deliver a certain kind of flavor, aroma, mouthfeel, and, for me, none of that is there with Meiomi.  I wouldn't bash it if I didn't try it.  (I didn't really bash it so much, either, just said it wasn't much like PN to me and wasn't very enjoyable.)  Big commercial wines:  Well, define that.  A lot of goo...

  • After many articles discussing customer dissatisfaction, Premier Cru, a very upscale wine store in Berkeley, filed for bankruptcy this week.  There have been concerns for J J Buckley's laggardly behavior in delivering wines on the WB and Wine Spectator forums, but so far they've made good on everything of mine save for three bottles of Hermitage...

  • Lots of growers use Roundup.  Not all. Roundup gets a big pass, and growers find it very convenient because it does what it is supposed to very effectively, so they emphasize its safety.  Not clear if it is associated with any human health problems, but there's some evidence that it does stay in soil and affects the microrhizome, an ecological a...
