  • I have a little catching up to do.  Saturday we had friends over and decided to do a real Bistecca Fiorentina.  Before hand, we harvested kale from the garden (and a HUGE cucumber that was actually incredibly tasty).  We roasted vegetables over an initial fire for a kale salad and a quinoa salad, then waited for the friends to arrive.  We starte...

  • There's not a lot of Trousseau (Bastardo) panted in California, less than 10 acres, so these are kind of on the rare side. The Luchsingers in Lake County have an acre or so, The Fanucchi Vineyard in Fulton a couple, Wells Guthrie of Cooain has grafted over 6 acres of his estate bineyards and Tegan Passalacqua if Turley/Sandlands an acre in the B...

  • Anyone have any experience?I've noticed Kelley mentioned among the best company in Oregon Pinot, popular with Somm's and the like. Being a Burgundy lover, I've mostly found CA Pinot painful (though I've found a few I like!), and Oregon Pinot quite a bit more elegant, but sometimes or most of the time more boring rather than painful (as I find wi...

  • Kirkland Signature Rioja Reserva 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Not your fathers Rioja. Brick red in the glass with lots of red fruit on the nose. Medium weight and fruit forward with good acidity finishing with light tannins to a really long fruity finish. Simple wine, reminds me of a Barbera. Read More

  • Hi everybody I'm a small store owner at the edge of the rust belt, my customers rarely spend over $20 for a bottle, and I am looking to improve my selection a bit beyond what is here now. If you have a minute to help a guy out let me know what you think are the best wines that usually sell for $20 or less. Thanks ! Read More

  • OK, this is a topic that hasn't come up recently but has many times in the past. How to store wine in the house? Whether to refrigerate?  How to choose passive or refrigerated wine cellars? What kind of wine fridges are best?  Etc., etc.I was doing some real estate shopping in the Ventura/Santa Barbara counties area and ran across a higher-end h... Read More

  • Yesterday was spent almost entirely in Washington DC; we headed out at 1 PM on the Metro to have lunch at Oceanaire, a fine seafood restaurant near the White House.  After that it was a short walk to the Renwick Gallery, which just opened again on this Friday the 13th with a new exhibit of modern art.  Soon it was time to head out again, this ti...

  • Fattoria Dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Slight brick color in the glass. This is not bricking that I might associate with an older wine that had been exposed to oxygen. Thats just the color that it is. Fairly sedate wine that does not assault the tongue with fruit flavors. There is a hint of red berry fruit, but that is it. I do get something of a licorice hint. Very nice. Tart... Read More

  • Greg is certainly a very knowledgeable contributor on multiple boards.  I don't know if anybody has noticed, though, but he is also a bit opinionated.  ;-)Personally, I am OK with Blue (Bleu. Roquefort, Stilton, Gorgonzola, Humboldt Fog) Cheese with most full-bodied red wines. However, you just cannot beat any of those with Sauternes -- or, I as... Read More

  • Château Haut-Batailley Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2006

    Snoothrank:

    This 2006 Pauillac was cellared prudently for 6 years, and appears to have peaked. The colour has become brick red, with a scent redolent of cranberry, blackberry confit and a hint of spicy cedar. On the palate, there is a bit of vanilla overlay and just a pleasant, faint hint of oak with cassis (current) and blackberry dominating the fruit. ... Read More
