  • This is the time of the year that you see a slew of rosé wine reviews, as the summer is known as pink wine season. This is underscored by the fact that most wineries release their rosés in the spring no doubt in an effort to latch on to the popular sentiment. For years, I refused to buy into to the “summer means rosé” mindset as I firmly believe... Read More

  • Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event.  It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California.  Talk about getting out of the box.  For me this is tantamount to cross-dressing.  It started because Chester introduced me to the Kettle Valley "Hayman" reserve Pinot last year.  I really liked it, so when I found one (83 ca...

  • What is a bit odd for these North Carolina wines is that the chardonnay wine label says Napa Valley chardonnay, but on the side of the label is says Vinted and Bottled by Lake Norman Winery, Ukiah, CA.  On the Sauv Blanc bottle it says Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc and on the side is says Vinted and Bottled by Lake Norman Winery, Cloverda...

  • Mark, never had a straight up Teroldego but have had it in a blend, nothing to write home about.JD, have also have a fair share of ho-hum viognier, but have also had some that were really good. Just have to keep searching.Now I know Cali sauvignon blanc is about as basic and (sometimes) mundane as it gets but this one is made by a winery about 2... Read More

  • RBA, that shellfish platter looks amazing.  You would have had to roll me away after that. And one more thing - EMark, it's a screwcap!Yup, v v, that would have moved that wine way up on my list of favorites.  No corkscrew fiascoes (fiaschi?) with that one.The Mt. Eden designation really confused me on that wine, though.  I thought Mount Eden wa... Read More

  • There’s nothing quite like having wine friends. After all, our mutual topic of interest is a social lubricant. But there’s so much more to it, as Snooth’s recent blogger trip will attest. Earlier this month we had the opportunity to explore one of the country’s oldest and up-and-coming wine regions: Lodi, California. It still amazes me that a si... Read More

  • We really enjoyed our Viking River Cruise ; I'm not sure where we'll go next year.  We can't afford big vacations year after year.  In 2014, we went down to South America where Chile was the place to see for wine.  I would like to return to Napa in 2016. Read More

  • I think OT had a thread in Berserkers all about pictures of vines and vineyards...tried to find one on here but came up short. There was some talk of Limerick Lane (has a nice ring to it) on here recently, I believe Mark has some of the wines. Just now I noticed a nice picture of some Limerick Lane Vineyard rows posted to Facebook by Adam of Sid... Read More

  • Hi Aline!Looks like you have Napa pretty much under control or at least have a lot of options. For Napa scenery, Newton Vineyard is awesome although it'll probably be a bit pricey, the wine is pretty good.Downtown Healdsburg has a bunch of tasting rooms, not quite Lompoc but easily walkable and lots of other shops and restaurants. There are a co... Read More

  • Recent research shows that a glass of red wine a day is like twenty minutes of vigorous exercise. So before summer rosés officially take hold, get in on the last gasps of Cabernet. I tasted through forty different Cabernets, all under $16. There are some superb examples here that you’re going to want to try. Cabernet, because of the value inhere... Read More
