  • . . . but has anybody participated in, or read about, a blind tasting of multiple samples of the same wine that have been opened for varying amounts of time?Many years ago I subscribed to Stereophile magazine. Not that I could afford the high-end equipment that they reviewed--heck, I could barely afford the magazine subscription--but I enjoy mus... Read More

  • People really have cheese delivered? Temperatures matter. Don't you have to get everything delivered overnight? Fox - I'm missing NYC right now. Looked for cheese all over San Diego and all I could find so far are Tillamook and Kraft and Boar's Head. For blue cheese and the only thing I could come up with was Stella.Seriously?That's going from b... Read More

  • This year I am working on an initiative to add voices to Snooth. For years we've been working with other wine writers, sharing our audience with them because we feel that having multiple voices speaking articulately about a subject is always preferable to a lone voice. I've been hoping to branch out into the retail side of things as our next ste... Read More

  • No worries, Jes.  I thought it was a reasonable question.  I just can't help you out.  I, and I suspect , a lot of people here enjoy cheese with wine.  Although I have to say, in my case, I only enjoy that combination on days ending in "y."  OT, eliminated the ambulance chaser.  Life is good.

  • Here’s an article that had a slim chance of being written. Pull together a case of wine from a vintage that is deemed passable at best and drink them at 33 years of age. I mean what the hell do you expect to find?How about:People, even the experts don’t know much.What is written about older vintages is a pile of steaming supposition.We are just ... Read More

  • I just checked my inventory--updating after purchasing some Myriad Syrah (thanks, OT!) and putting in the Jemrose Syrahs I bought a month ago (thanks again, OT!) and it is now official:  I have more Syrah than Cab on hand and quite a bit pending delivery.  (Um, thanks OT? Love the wines but the space is getting a little tight...)So it seemed lik... Read More

  • Time for an olive oil throwdown!Really, I've been tasting and reading and it's almost as fun and complex as wine.  It sounds like a hellish amount of work for a product that  people just don't want to pay a fair price for. So then we get what we deserve.  Luckily, I live in an area where you can grow olives and get just about anything in an arti... Read More

  • I've followed a few threads here over the years about the pros and cons of Garagiste as a place to buy wine, so I thought this was a good place to share this story:Last summer I bought a bunch of EVOO from them. It came during a huge heat wave. I'd had oil from the producer before, and this shipment wasn't as good as I'd come to expect. It wasn'... Read More
