Hi, I am an accidental wine enthusiast. As part of a major remodeling project including our family room I revived my interest and enjoyment of wine. Our family room was redone using dark hickory planking and the room has a short wall next to our fireplace. This wall has always presented a challenge to make use of the space. I researched and sear... Read More
So we have some interest in having a West Coast meet-up (or you can call it a throw-down) for Pinot. Here's my opening proposal: We'll do it very close to the Oakland Airport, to save those who are traveling in from out of town (like Emark and JonDerry) from having extra travel if they want to fly. This would give LuchaVino a chance to attend... Read More
I bought this on a lark...figuring since it was imported all way from Armenia (Turkey &/or Russia) it must be pretty good. Then I learned it was CHURCHILL'S favorite brand....my my. Really does smell like kind of a very profound candy, and goes down very smooth. One would not think it was 40% alcohol. This is indeed a very pleasant brandy--g... Read More
Unlike with my pick for Wine of the Year, which is a wine that has moved me and changed my view of wine in some way, shape or form, I award my Winery of the Year selection to a winery that has had consumer interests at top of mind.This can be seen as a vague statement in that most wineries have their consumers’ interests at heart in one way or a...

Planning a trip to Walla Walla this summer. Any recommendations for wineries to visit, restaurants to try, other things to see etc? Read More
I know there have been at least one or two conversations about buying wines at Costco, but I happened to catch the one hour documentary about Costco on CNBC, last night. They actually spent a significant portion of the program (8-9 minutes) about wine sales. Here is the thing that blew me away. Apparently, annual wine sales at Costco exceed a... Read More
Sadly I did Not. I had a busy weekend that involved wine, but sadly that was mostly inventorying, packing, and moving wine around the state of NY! Got about a dozen cases moved closer to home, so now I'm pretty well set for the next few months of drinking! Next bottle up looks like it might very well be 1987 Dunn Napa Valley. Funny how Dunn was ... Read More
Greg DP's series of articles on matching wines to fastfood has been entertaining for me, and I assume others. It was always a private challenge of mine, I thought, until he went public with it. I grew up on the West Coast, and though I've gone even further west across the Pacific since then, I still visit that part of the States most, and have s... Read More
Ararat 5 star is a truly amazing brandy. It is a shame this is not as well known in the west as it used to be. No wonder this was the FAVORITE brandy of Sir Winston Churchill. It's mouth feel is well rounded, almost silky but substantial, not watery but not thick. It denotes a vivid, elegant aroma. It hints notes of beeswax, walnut and oak. The... Read More
