  • Imagine the shock: That priceless vintage you acquired for your cellar – the one which induced the admiring glances of some of the richest men in America – is a fake, a sham. You're left with a worthless bottle of wine. Meanwhile, somewhere in the world, a criminal is using his sterling reputation to cloak a rather nefarious empire of false supe... Read More

  • Hmmm. Shipping the grapes across a desert could explain the sweetness:  They are passarille as the French say, or dried.  Higher sugar, possibly arrested fermentation.  Wonder if they use the native yeast?  In that dry, semi-high altitude environment, not a lot of yeast thrives.  Shipping grapes across the desert isn't really hospitable for the ...

  • Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... Read More

  • I see probably a half dozen or more wines on that list from Gallo that I drink or would drink without a problem.  Martin Codax is effectively a version of Gallo for certain regions of Spain--they made, distributed, and exported all kinds of stuff.  Good Albarino, if not stellar.  Wm Hill was a nice place to visit last year and the stuff they sel...

  • I was at HMB Ritz Carlton today.  Was 70+ degrees, and a gorgeous sunset.  While there, I had a very nice pinot..   2009 Soliste Narcisse Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir.   When searching the internet on this wine, it seems like it is only distributed to restaurants/shops.  What is the best way to get some of this?  Go through my local wine shop?  Thanks!

  • The boards' favorite California Cabernet Sauvignon producer has recently released their 2008 Howell Mountain and Napa Valley wines. Randy Dunn is one of the most respected winemakers in California by those "in the know".
