Fall Creek Vineyards was established in 1975 by Texas businessman/rancher, Ed Auler and his wife, Susan. The vineyards are located eighty miles northwest of Austin in the Texas Hill Country where the sandy loam soil, warm days and cool breezes off Lake Buchanan provide an excellent microclimate for growing premium wine grapes. – Description from JasminaDragoljevic

  • One of my few discoveries this year has been CA Viognier of all things.As per usual, someone on WB posted the details of the latest Dirty & Rowdy release, and at first glance, it seemed like a release I wouldn't be interested in....then I got to remembering a 2014 Kamen Viognier that a friend opened recently (in India nonetheless), and how surpr...

  • Try AMON-Ra from Oz, too. Greg's Quilceda Creek and Amarone seconded. 2005 Chateauneuf du Pape also qualifies.Do we want to talk about late-harvest Zins?  ;-)Another approach is to take this list and target specific regions and (older) vintages that might fall under that price limit. If not these vineyards, maybe some others in close proximity t... Read More

  • When you spend more than two weeks in a place you soak in a lot about it. Taste all the wine you want at home, but there’s simply no substitute for standing in the dirt where the wine is grown or for tasting it alongside those who shepherd it into existence. These things are certainly true of a recent trip I took to New Zealand, which saw me cri... Read More

  • Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

  • Twin Springs Eds Smooth Red

    Snoothrank:

    This is a cloyingly sweet wine with not a whisper of tannins. Inert and boring with nothing to commend it. I couldn't tell if I had a mouthful of wine or flat off brand cola. Read More
