  • Cabernet Sauvignon is a shape-shifter. This is true for nearly every grape, but most especially Cab. Perhaps because it is grown in so many places, we are aware of the many different shapes it can take. Climate, terroir, vintage year, winemaking and more make a huge difference. But what IS it about Cabernet Sauvignon? The Gironde native has capt... Read More

  • Celani Siglo Proprietary Red 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The Celani family has made a rich and delicious Proprietary red wine which sounds like a blend but is 100% Merlot from Napa Valley.

For that reason it was also the dominant choice of home winemakers in other parts of the country who were purchasing grapes shipped east from California.  For years it was thought th... Read More

  • According to a YouGov poll, forty-one percent of Americans enjoy wine with Thanksgiving dinner. It's no wonder we spend so much time planning our drink menus.

  • EM - Yes, lots of older riders have their bikes shipped out to some place near Sturgis, but when I do that event, I will ride there.  It will just have to be a two or three week vacation, that's all.  One reason we are driving to Wyoming this year is to see the 'fly-over' portion of the country that we haven't seen.  We have driven quite a bit o...

  • DM - We are familiar with the Pinot Noir in Burgundy, as we visited that area on a Viking River Cruise down the Rhone River back in 2015.  My web page documents the exciting times we had.  We do get plenty of Pinot Noir from Sonoma and Napa, along with Alexander and Anderson Valleys.  Duckhorn, Medlock Ames, even Barnett make Pinot Noir.  I don'...
