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

  • Well, here's an interesting possibility from down under. Dead ringer for Cote Rotie, you say?  And $50?  Positively a bargain.If anyone wants to try it, I'll pick it up.  Or maybe I'll sneak it in as a ringer. Read More

  • Nice pointer to that cellar article, Fox. Certainly top of its line in several ways, but afraid such an antiseptic doctor's-office-of-a-cellar has no appeal to me. Wrong lighting, wrong flooring, everything electro-controlled. I want a passive underground space, with a floor that has the kind of coarse bricks that scuff your soles and absorb spi... Read More

  • 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

  • OK, if we are going to do this we'd better get serious about it and get some details worked out.

Location is Forestville CA. in the middle of the RRV. I am about 12 minutes from Charles Shulz Sonoma ... Read More

  • Shiraz, or should I say Syrah? Either way, you have one of the world’s truly noble grapes, yet one that tends to cause a bit of confusion. The two names don’t help of course, or the fact that, in theory, they represent two different styles of wine. One the one hand you have Syrah, the name in French that represents the style of wine produced thr... Read More

  • I know of a number of people in the craft beer world who are purposely introducing brettanomyces into the brewing equation to see how interesting things can get. 'Wild yeast' beers are barely (not) controllable but they are rapidly becoming cult items. Case in point, this quote about a Sierra Nevada brew, taken from Good Morning America: Sierra ... 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...
