    The irony here is that Syrah’s origins could give Carmen Sandiego a run for her international wallet. Syrah’s deepest...

  • Barolo is the “King” of Italian wines. Its crown, however, has changed during the past 50 years or so. Italy’s wine laws went into effect in the mid-1960’s. At that time Barolo was a DOC wine. There were 3 categories: DOC Regular (Normale), DOC Riserva, and DOC Riserva Speciale. Two years of aging in cask and 13% alcohol was required by all thre... Read More

  • Sandrone is modernist, so it's interesting to see what's happening to those.  The modernists probably made the wines more drinkable young by taming the tannins with oak, but at a cost of burying some of what makes Nebbiolo unique. (Here I am sounding like some cocksure expert--I'm not, but this is certainly how many, including Oz Clarke, saw it,... Read More

  • Actually, we had rose, too, from Campuget, last night.  It was somewhere between rose weather and not,  which makes sense:  I am on the Bay, OT is on the River and gets a lot of ocean influence this time of year, and NG is in the inland part of the county I live in, where it's much hotter and drier. Tonight I am drinking a 2004 Barolo, which is ...

  • Really just to see what they're like and get a feel for the producers style. Also for fun.The Pelissero was a success in this regard, the delle Rose, not as much. Even with all the air I gave it, it didn't open very much on the palate, the nose was interesting though, more medicinal and menthol in with the tar and roses. Having tasted the wines,... Read More

  • WB has a thread on this, why not us?Cracked my first one over the weekend, a Giorgio Pelissero Barbaresco Nubiola. While Pelissero has a couple more highly esteemed Barbaresco (Tulin, of which I have a few, and Venotu, of which I hope to get some), I enjoyed this wine, and picked the right time to open it as it was accessible enough for the casu...

  • I’ve found that using the inside of the mouth brings more organoleptic real estate to the job of smelling wine...I've got to laugh at that one, even as someone with a lot of "organoleptic real estate," possessing both a big mouth and a big nose.  The "inside of the mouth," beside the part specifically called the tongue, has no sensory apparatus ...

  • I am naturally a very curious person so I've taken it upon myself to learn more about wine from professionals. About 6 months ago I joined a weekly wine tasting club in Portland Oregon. It is hosted by the owner of the establishment and he is a Sommelier. He has taken his test for Master Sommelier in London twice and did not make it. Most of the... Read More

  • Gearing up for a whirlwind tour of the who's who of Nebbiolo producers in Piedmont, I realized I would be meeting quite a few women. Nine of my 18 visits would be with or include women.  This struck me. In one generation, many of Piedmont's cellars have transitioned from conservative, male-dominated dominions. Whereas women who worked with the f... Read More

  • To welcome fall, and without a doubt the season has arrived, like clockwork, the moment our Labor Day weekend had wrapped up, I have always had a bit of a tradition of opening some Barbaresco. While my heart may belong to Barolo, the somewhat more elegant and more approachable wines of Barbaresco are perfect for times when you are looking for so... Read More
