  • Going back to the Lingcod story I hinted at in the other thread, here's how that went...I just remember trying Lingcod years ago at some place like King's fish house, and then never seeing it again. I'd even read fish reports in the newspaper and hardly see any caught except sometimes a few in Oxnard, etc. Seems like they are mostly caught off o... Read More

  • Hi everyone.  This is my first post on the boards.  My wife and I are doing a long weekend in Healdsburg (Jan 15-17) and Yountville (Jan 17-19) over MLK weekend and were looking for some recommendations on wineries to visit.  We tend to like more full bodied red wines, but are open to other wines as well. We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • Skeptical I recently visited the Napa Valley for the first time in about three years. Like many wine geeks, I’m jaded when it comes to Napa Valley wines, almost programed to dismiss them based on their success. You see, to be a true wine geek has somehow morphed into cultivating an exclusive appreciation of obscure wines. Orange wines? Bring the... Read More

  • I‘ve recently been tasting through recent Cabernet releases from the Napa Valley and have been struck by the appeal of many of the wines. This is due in small part to the string of vintages, cooler than typical, that winemakers have recently been working with. But there might be more to it than that. I’ve written up my thoughts on the matter and... Read More

  • France may have established that the grapes of Bordeaux go very well together, but that essential blend can now be found in excellent wines worldwide, from South Africa to Washington State.California does particularly well with the black grapes of Bordeaux: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. California Bordeaux ... Read More

  • I just finished reading 10 pages of very interesting, insightful and articulate posts about the perceived demise of California Cabernet Sauvignon. There was a lot of data contributing to the perception that California is in the middle of a high alcohol "fruit bomb" era.I'm not going to pretend to be Robert Parker Jr., James Laube or even several...

  • Mount Brown Riesling Waipara 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Colour: very light, with a slight hew of yellowy green. Typical for age and grape.Nose: sharp, clean, green apple, with residual apricot. Quite alcoholic -- somewhat upfront, be relatively tame.Taste: alcohol completely subsides once wine hits the tongue, resulting in a near-perfect balace of acidity. The acid just catches (a touch) at the back ... Read More

  • Mount Brown Riesling Waipara 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Crisp lime and fresh pineapple fruit. Ever-so-slight hint of kerosene on the nose. A long finish. Satisfyingly mouthfilling but not as intense as some NZ sauvignon. Read More
