  • I'm finally getting around to this.  Last week we spent a few days in the Central Coast.  I wanted to do a little wine tasting, and we headed over to Edna Valley.  For some reason Edna Valley seems to be the least appreciated AVA in the Central Coast region. I really don't get it.  There are several wineries there that offer terrific products at... Read More

  • OK, quiz time. Thought I'd start a challenge where we can throw quotes out at the group, which has to then guess attribution. Who said it, and if possible when, why, etc.?Hints are allowed, even preferred. Person who gets the attribution right then gets to offer up their query.This would've been a lot more fun 20 yrs ago before the web. So yeah,... Read More

  • Emark - I see no science at all here. All Zin is from century-old vines. As far as I know, ZIn wasn't hybridized this century, or even last century, so all the Zin in the world is coming from some original plant.It's not like it's the son or daughter, it IS the original plant.I just got done cutting back my roses.
