  • The '80 thru '84 vertical, all reserve, was last year.  Still in excellent condition, though one (the '84) had peaked and another ('81) was getting there. Won't know until I have my last bottles whether those were bottle issues or definitively the vintages.Chalone from the last decade and a half bears little resemblance to that from its earlier ...

  • Well understood Fox, but I didn't mean to speak about stated ABV, the legality of it, and variability there.So how does a wines actual/natural alcohol change over time, if at all? Conventional wisdom seems to point to a very slow fade here. Curious as to your opinions, or better yet, some more factual/scientific evidence of this phenomenon.Stret... Read More

    Forum post in the topic A Wine's ABV Over Time?


  • There was a conversation on WB started on this topic...I had always assumed alcohol dissipated over time slowly. I believe Mike Officer posted a range, referencing one of the 1st growth chateau in Bordeaux, of 0.3% - 0.8% every 20 years. That number sounded reasonable to me, but I'm not aware of the facts surrounding this.I kind of figure old wi... Read More

But there are some things you can do to get closer to the correct answer. This is a rich, endless topic. For right now, we’ll focus on the identification of un... Read More

Keefer Ranch, Cargassaci.. possible @ 45-90 USD$$Vineyard Specific; Vintage Specific (SLH and SRH and Sonoma Coast or Russian River)  Pinot's are Value and Worthy in my o... Read More

  • Nothing goes with all foods. Maybe Grenache/Syrah. Chenin Blanc goes well with food, The label will have the denotation Sec or Demi-Sec in the wine name. Sec may mean dry but the allowable sugar in Sec wine makes that meaning a nonstarter for me. There are also many dry wines that give the perception of sweetness so don't narrow your views too m...
