It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy. This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel.

I was going to put this in the Whatcha Drinking Tonight thread. But since there was some Syrah talk going on I thought I'd start a new thread on Cool Climate Syrah.Tonight I'm visiting a wine I haven't had in since May and wanted to see how it is progressing.

For some time now, I have noticed a pattern with men who disparage rose as being a "girly" wine. Some of the most accomplished and masculine sommeliers I know would rather drink rose than pretty much anything else. Any thoughts on the male problem with drinking rose? Read More

We had the opportunity to visit Temecula, CA recently and do some wine tasting. We had a wonderful experience and tasted some superb wines. We started our journey at the Hart Vineyard. This is a small vineyard that produces only about 5,000 cases of wine/year but they have some excellent white and red wines. We tasted a wonderful Viognier and li... Read More
We were talking the other day about the Norton grape and I had mentioned that there was a NOVA winery that had just won a double gold with theirs. Well, I thought that I should give it a review to give people a little more insight as to what this wine is all about. This is one that I cheerfully recommend.http://www.corrundum.net/post/Oh-crap-ano... Read More
