  • Cotes du Rhone. It’s a surprisingly well known wine in a world where the wines people are generally more comfortable with come with varietal designations as opposed to regional ones. Sure there are Chianti, and Bordeaux, but how many other regional appellations are most people familiar with? And is there any other that is exclusively focused on ... Read More

  • "I still prefer soft tannins however, and those tend to improve with age, right?"Actually, not. As Greg also alluded to above, big, fruit-forward (even blowsy) over-ripe wines, often picked later in the year and with correspondingly higher alcohol, tend not to age as well. 1997 was a famous vintage that everyone wanted to love in California (lik...

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...

  • As a Californian, I have felt the loss of such old names as Almaden, Christian Brothers and Inglenook.  (OK, I guess Almaden still exists as a mocking shell of its former being.  OK, I know it never was great, but their bottles did have corks.  Maybe I am the only person who feels a sense of loss of Almaden.)  Another of the old abused names is ...

  • Wanting to refresh my memory on certain French vintages in the Rhône Valley I came across (as I often do) the Robert Parker Vintage Chart.  Parker includes vintages from 1970 through 2010 on his website and scores them on the usual 100 point scale.  He claims that scores of 70-79 are "average" while those of 80-89 are "above average to excellent...

  • Just released, a 60-page French comic book brings up the same "Mondovino type" of attacks against Robert Parker, Michel Rolland, les Garagistes and modernists in general... I have read it, and found it funny, but also not to be taken too seriously (of course, it is but a comic book). But it got me thinking - yet again - about modernism and tradi... Read More

  • Last October, I purchased a cellar to store my homemade wines and to give me the ability to store and age some commercial wines.  Though I consider what I do with my commercial wines "collecting", the wines I'm purchasing and aging don't really fall into what most deem "collectible" wines.  I don't spend $300 on a bottle of wine.  I rarely spend...
