  • More like Layer Cake. With Locations it's Dave Phinney, with Layer Cake it's Jayson Woodbridge. They go out to the vineyards and they'll make some decisions on picking, etc. If they don't like what they get that year, they may not make the wine - there was no Layer Cake Shiraz in 2007 for example  Whether they actually pull every lever and clean...

  • Can anyone help me figure out the difference between the Dave Phinney (Orin Swift) Locations F1, F2 and F3 wines. I tried one that was listed as a 2011 vintage. I did not see the bottle and don't know which to look for. Do the 1, 2 and 3 correspond to vintage? Any clarification is appreciated.  Read More

  • I have a confession to make publicly. I am a Yeast Wrangler. In every fermentation, every harvest, I try to get inside the minds of these tiny fungi and discern what they want to eat, how they would like to be treated, and what temperature they would like their environment to be. They make the wine and winemakers try to keep them happy. They are... Read More

  • Had the pleasure to taste with GregT in San Diego yesterday evening. I had the idea to pair up Greg and a friend from the Netherlands who was in San Diego for a convention, due to their interest in Tokaj, and it seemed to work well, everyone having a good time.Lessons Learned: Harslevelu is good stuff, and probably my new favorite white wine gra...

  • Montalcino is a beautiful medieval hilltop village just 40 miles south of Siena, on the ancient roadway to Rome. It is dominated by a castle, called La Fortezza, which doubles as an enoteca and wine shop. La Fortezza offers most of the wines of the zone, plus older vintages, as well as honey, olive oil, jams and the like. It also offers a breath... 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...

    Forum post in the topic Barolo & Barbaresco

  • It always seemed odd to us that in Piemonte, the land of Barolo, the King of Wines and the Wine of Kings, we would always find a bottle of Barbera in front of us on the table. The answer was and is simple: Barbera is bountiful, versatile, delicious and moderate in price. The Piemontesi drink more reds than whites and almost 50% of the reds that ... Read More

  • Hey, I hear that VTs are coming back, with one scheduled for March!  Not to steal the thunder, so I won't leak what the region/grape is going to be (regulars, watch your mail boxes if you live in the US), but it's going to be good if my inbox is any indication.I'm opening up the floor to ask the question, "Who do you think will be the host?"  Ma...

  • My family moved to California when I was 3 1/2.  The wine industry was nascent, or the fine wine business was.  We drank small glasses of beer with tacos, burgers and pizza on weekends, even as kids.  My mother cannot remember a time when I did not like beer.  On Sundays, we had wine with our dinner (eaten in the traditional afternoon slot, foll...
