    A perfect way to turn someone onto the viognier grape: Delicious bright banana and mango, unctuous texture. Bright and happy. A great summer afternoon wine. Read More

  • Recently I was pleasantly surprised by a visit to Lodi, California. Long the ... those produced by Turley, Miner’s Leap or Bonny Doon, just to mention a few familiar names.

  • I ran up to Napa for a few days to get away and taste some wines from places ... It was either Miner or ZD next and for whatever reason, I went to ZD.  All nice wines.  Big, bold and powerful wines.  Here, I really liked the 2011 Chardonnay, 2011 Reserve Carneros Chardonnay, 11 Carneros Pinot, and 09 Reserve Cab. As time was short, I again opte... Read More

It is very much in the French style. Not too citrusy. Smooth and soft on the palate. Just th... Read More

Too buttery, the more ... ... oaky Chardonnays and the Miner Chardonnay did not fail.A pale gold color, so much lighter than you would expect from this powerful wine.
