  • 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.

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

  • Gwen, I agree that the BV Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is a good wine--and 2010 is an excellent vintage year.  So, you can't hardly go wrong with your choice.Darren is a recent Snoother, and he has made some excellent suggestions regarding Italian wines.  I am a California bigot, but there is no denying the greatness if Italian wines--both in j...
