The truth is that I don’t drink very much Cabernet these days, opting instead for other wines that fit my lifestyle a bit better. It’s not that I don’t like Cabernet.In fact I can honestly say that I still love Cabernet, though that love is mostly satisfied by older examples from California and some newer releases from places like South Africa. ...

Wow, another thread resurrected from the archives. This one pre-dates my joining Snooth. So, all these comments were new to me. Everybody knows that I won't argue with Sellitman's preference for Ridge Zinfandels.You know, though, I cannot believe that no comment was made about the topic. I know I'm an old guy, but, sheesh, this is in the Hal... Read More
We're heading back to (my favorite wine region) Russian River the first weekend in October and are looking for advice on what to do and what to expect. We've been to RRV several times but only during the off season. Is there anything special we should do at this time of year, and conversely, is there anything we should avoid? Read More
Lots of options here. Some of the exceed your pricing range but WTF, "go big or go home" right? You do have a cot set aside for me though.

I am pretty much prejudiced towards red wines. However, that does not mean that I drink them exclusively. I do drink quite a bit of white wine. Probably, because, like most Americans my age, we are encouraged to bias out protein input away from red meats. The good news for me is that I do love seafood and chicken. So, that is really not a s... Read More
Who else is still drinking the 1996 California cabs? I had yet another bottle on Memorial Day and loved it. Altamura '96 was lovely. Previously I've loved the 1996 BV GdLatour. As we know, 1997 amazed people but has largely faded early. Two questions:1. Which of the 2000s vintages will age like the 96s have done so gracefully?2. Which 1996s i... Read More

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". Though he keeps a low profile and his wines aren't known for being hyped, I get the impression that his wines are slowly incre... Read More
A couple of news items I was pondering today.First, Robert Parker came out with his ratings for the 2009 Bordeaux vintage. Ever the masochist, I decided to go look at some prices in the marketplace after the ratings were released. Some samplings:2009 Chatau Latour 100 points $21,500 a case2009 Chateau Marg... Read More
I was served this wine at a restaurant last night, and I really like it. We were eating at a nice buffet restaurant with prime rib and pork tenderloin. This wine tasted smooth, lightly sweet with no strong after taste. I'm no way an expert but I like this more than Merlot and Cabernet. Read More
