A wonderful Syrah from an under-appreciated region. Deep black and blue fruits on the nose along with clove, black pepper and smoke. The palate is concentrated with some nice earthy notes coming through with blackberry pie and pencil lead.

Last night we drank a Lafond Syrah SRH from (duh!) the Santa Rita HIlls. A colleague brought it back from Santa Barbara, where the winery has a tasting room; she does that for me whenever she's down there because she's a great colleague and knows I like the wine. She also got two bottles of Oregon PN in appreciation. This is a seriously good ... Read More
Here's the funny thing: For just a minute, Napa Ridge Cab was made from grapes from Napa Valley. So that added to the confusion. Franzia sometimes bought up labels that had some history or a reputation. (His company is called Bronco, because the Franzia name was bought by Coca Cola and sold to The Wine Group. So there's lots of history and ... Read More
We finally got the news that we are approved for our planning permit. Now comes the really trying part: building permits, contractors' estimates, dislocation, refinancing, and dealing with the neighbor who tried to stop the project and who will harass the contractor. But it's official: I get a basement with room for a real cellar with temper... Read More

I'm on Day 2 with this wine. On Day 1 I found it to be angular and lean--almost watery. There were some stone fruit flavors on the tip of the tongue, but the overwhelming mouth sensation was drying tannins and bitterness from mid- ot rear-palate. Today the wine is a bit more round, but, still not much fruit. This wine is pretty highly regard... Read More
Perhaps we could use a place to share recent purchases...Here are some '12 Burlotto Langhe Nebbiolo, which came highly recommended from a trusted friend who just got back from a month in Italy. I'm not seeing many available in the States quite yet, but was happy to find these locally. Read More
Hi all!Hoping to wade into interesting wine talk (and food talk). Me, I've been seriously enjoying and exploring wine for just over 20 years. On the red side, right now I'm partial to wines from Spain and the Rhone valley, but other loves are Oregon pinots, really good Italian wines (yes, it's endless, but that's the fun), and wanting to try mu...

Last week, outthere posted a nice one about some newer wineries that received props in Antonio Galloni's article about new California wineries.I had made plans with OT to meet up at Mike Smith's joint, the Carter winery, where he makes his own Myriad wines. I had a half case of Myriad waiting for pickup and we were bringing my wife's new execut... Read More
Did anybody go berserk on Berserker Day over on the Wine Berserkers website? I pulled the trigger on a three pack of Super Tuscan style reds from Kaella Winery based out of Woodinville. This one is 86% Sangiovese, 7% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Sauvignon. The grapes are sourced from Ciel du Cheval, Conor Lee and Ambassador . Three outstanding vine... Read More
I just checked my inventory--updating after purchasing some Myriad Syrah (thanks, OT!) and putting in the Jemrose Syrahs I bought a month ago (thanks again, OT!) and it is now official: I have more Syrah than Cab on hand and quite a bit pending delivery. (Um, thanks OT? Love the wines but the space is getting a little tight...)So it seemed lik... Read More
