  • V V - That one sounds nice.  How long would you hang onto a white wine from that winery?  I start worrying about white wines once they are past five years.Tonight we had a wonderful time and it didn't cost me a nickel.  We were taken out to dinner at a Korean restaurant, then driven over to National Harbor to ride the ferris wheel.  It was crowd...

  • "Stainless steel wasn't even available until the 1960s"Good point in general, but it was available in industrial applications quite a bit earlier. Stainless steel did spread universally across most consumer segments by the '60s.

  • A few days ago I participated in a tasting/pairing event that featured white wines. One of the wines was Chablis, and, while discussing this one, the facilitator stated that it was fermented in steel and had never seen oak.  I asked if that was common for the region and he responded that it was absolutely the case, and was so for all white wines...

  • Hey, Al, in the "Weekend wines" thread you commented that the Nickel & Nickel wine that I had over the weekend was well regarded by critics and at about $100 was a pretty spendy wine.  I think I spent closer to $70 for mine.I am of the opinion that the price of wines can be correlated to the quality.  However, that correlation is definitely 1.0....

  • Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Vogt Vineyard 2006


    Dark red plum color. Heavy, oaky nose. Dark berry fruit on entry. Probably, the most interesting thing about this wine is that it has a nice smooth mouth-feel on entry. Then, mid-palate still serious tannin pops up. This gives it a rougher mouth-feel. Once you get past that, there are nice sensations on the back palateberries, again, and a... Read More

    Wine review by EMark

  • EM, that 2006 Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon should have been a great wine, given it's low 90's rating and near $100 price tag.  It certainly sounds like one I would enjoy, except for too much tannin.  That's one reason I do enjoy the smoothness of a good Merlot.  Oh, that Naan bread from Rasika is called Mint Paratha.  It wasn't my favorite...
