  • Long Shadows seems like a guest chef program, but in wine.  In college, our dining program would bring in chefs from around the US about four times a year under the "Cross Country Gourmet" rubric.  There was a lottery type system with a limited number of seats, and someone would come from a resto and we'd get a decent meal on our own turf.  LS g...

    Forum post in the topic Locations F1 vs F2 vs F3


  • Can anyone help me figure out the difference between the Dave Phinney (Orin Swift) Locations F1, F2 and F3 wines. I tried one that was listed as a 2011 vintage. I did not see the bottle and don't know which to look for. Do the 1, 2 and 3 correspond to vintage? Any clarification is appreciated.  Read More

  • OK, this is a topic that hasn't come up recently but has many times in the past. How to store wine in the house? Whether to refrigerate?  How to choose passive or refrigerated wine cellars? What kind of wine fridges are best?  Etc., etc.I was doing some real estate shopping in the Ventura/Santa Barbara counties area and ran across a higher-end h... Read More

  • The hostess needed the seat to seat people who waited in line ahead of me...definitely a modern, too cool for school kind of place, and the bar was one long line that ran all the way down the restaurant, so not a traditional bar at all. I was happy that I got booted just minutes later as Blackbird's room was a lot more traditional, relaxed, and ... Read More

  • Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee. So on short notice I decided to let them all know I was coming to town, and luckily I got a good tip on an excellent restaurant near my hotel, Nico Osteria. Have ... Read More

  • MJET,It was certainly no criticism!  As I said, I'm sure they're not the same and I'd probably love them.  I only have that many of the same thing for a specific tasting, usually blind with at least six people.  That St. Francis is a Cab right?  It's hard to see the label.  For me, that line up would probably be in the $400 neighbourhood!The "or...

  • So, Al, is Sandra sick of retirement, yet?Since this is a Friday, and OT gets cranky if you say that Friday is part of the weekend, and , since I don't know where Al draws the line on spendy Cabernet Sauvignons, I'll post this one here This is not a bad wine, but, clearly, my recent streak has been slowed down.  This one just smacks you on initi...

  • For me it certainly is based on principle, but the reality sometimes can be a surprise.  In my opinion, a Pinot Noir is usually light and would not be a good follow-up to a Shiraz (read Aussie fruit-bomb), or an Amarone.  I base it first on grape and or blend.  Age can come into play, but if I think it's say a young cab sav, I'll decant it and t...

  • Thank you for the excellent report, OT.  An amazing line-up of wines to which I would not be able to add very much.  Am I correct in assuming that you were not tasting blind?  If that is correct, I do have a mag that might fit in.  For something very different I could run down to Galleano and pick up some bottles made from 100-year old Cucamonga...

  • This is a report I adapted from my recap on WB. Unfortunately a few guests fell ill in the days prior and had to bow out. Missed you Richard! All in all it was a fun evening with some interesting wines. Plenty of left overs to start the next incarnation. Weather was rain in the AM and we feared having to host indoors but the skies cleared around... Read More
