Very fresh and vibrant Shiraz. Nice raspberry and red fruit flavors. Peppery with a bit of tar on the finish. Smoked a port tenderloin with apple and pecan, and it stood up to that nicely. Great QPR.

Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee.

Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas.

There is not much new information one can write about Theobaldo Cappellano, a sometimes divisive winemaker with whom I was once fortunate to spend the better part of the afternoon discussing winemaking, viticulture, land use, morality and invention. To say that my visit was unusual is perhaps an understatement, though I’m guessing it was only un... Read More
The nose opens to strong tar with hints of plum and pepper, notes of floral. The palate launches with tar, raspberry, blackberry, licorice, pepper. Tart and sour. Thin on the finish. For an inexpensive wine, not bad. Not bitter or astringent even though dominated by sour/tart fruit in the first hour. No heavy bombing, which is nice, but cl... Read More

We were sitting around one recent winter afternoon, enjoying one of our favorite Tuscan I.G.T.'s, Fattoria Montagliari's 1997 Brunesco, when it occured to us that this wine would be amazing combined with bitter chocolate. Now, the idea of combining certain wines with chocolate is nothing new - but this Brunesco!With that, Antonio grabbed the hal... Read More
Red Wine Headaches (The RWH Syndrome)Roxi, a colleague, recently asked me on Facebook what caused her headaches when she drank wine. My standard “bar talk” on the subject was not enough because she gets headaches from all kinds of wine, red and white including grape juice but not the actual fresh unfermented grapes.So I was stumped and started r...
