  • Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event.  It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California.  Talk about getting out of the box.  For me this is tantamount to cross-dressing.  It started because Chester introduced me to the Kettle Valley "Hayman" reserve Pinot last year.  I really liked it, so when I found one (83 ca...

  • I once, a few years back, almost pulled the trigger on a real estate purchase in the hills back behind the Big Sur coastline. Was reminiscing on that today, and wondered why I never hear about wine from that area. Is it because I'm so far away and out of touch and there actually are barrels and barrels of wine being made there, or because the cu... Read More

Tomorrow we were planning on driving out of town to do some wine tasting, etc....probably McMinnville. I was too busy and tired to really make any plans for th... Read More

  • I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week.  So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent.  Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a...

  • I had my first example of a Frank Family wine, yesterday--2006 Napa Valley Zinfandel.  I was intrigued that the back label on this bottle had an interesting discourse on the Larkmead Winery:"Historic Larkmead Winery was originally built of wood in 1884.  in 1905, new owners Felix Salmina, Sr. and his wife, Theresa, commissioned local stonemason,...

  • The other day I took a chance on an obscure bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon priced very very low. It was the descriptor on the back label that convinced me that it was worth a try.  I rated this 2010 Domino Cabernet Sauvignon here on Snooth. I also did a little research on the producers of this wine and found out that it was the Delicato Family Vin... Read More
