Old School Lane
Purchased this about 2 years ago when I was a member of a wine club. Wasn't happy with most of the wines they sent so I quit. This one is however exceptional and a perfect surprize. It has deep intense blackberry fruit and is well balanced with overt...

After graduating from medical school and before beginning indentured service as a resident physician, my wife and I decided we should make a trip out to California wine country and Yosemite. So, a week after moving to my new residency location, we pawned off the two year old on the grandparents and headed for the hills of California.We arrived i... Read More
On Tuesday I wrote with great pleasure about a group of Cabernets that were right about $25 a bottle, some less. They represented much of what I look for in Cabernet, and at an affordable price. Today I turn my sights to wines that promise much more. At least they are priced in such a way as to promise much more, not that they always deliver. T... Read More
It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy. This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More

It's that time of year. Beer is probably the best bet, but I'm wondering what wine others like to drink with Carolina-style pulled pork and/or ribs. Read More
Hi everyone,I'm a newish lurker who jumped on a great fare to San Francisco from my little pocket of Missouri wine country near St. Louis in mid-August with the intent of visiting the Sonoma area as a solo traveler. I will be arriving early afternoon on a Thursday and staying until early Monday morning.As a solo female traveler and a red fan - ... Read More
People are not going to like what I have to say here, but that is okay, this is not a popularity contest. I do not write about wine to gather as many friends or followers as possible. I write about wine because I love wine and while I know my palate sometimes strays outside of the mainstream, so be it. I know many other people share my tastes or... Read More

Purchased this about 2 years ago when I was a member of a wine club. Wasn't happy with most of the wines they sent so I quit. This one is however exceptional and a perfect surprize. It has deep intense blackberry fruit and is well balanced with overtones of tobacco, vanilla, caramel and is on the strong oakey side. All in all, it's a winner bu... Read More
