  • As you may know, Zinfandel is my favorite American grape variety. The wines produced tend to span a wide range of fascinating styles and can reveal fabulous terroir. I belong to a grand total of three winery lists, two of which are primarily for Zinfandel. From two of the the greatest producers of not only Zinfandel, but the great field blends t... Read More

  • Yeah guys, every day is a learning experience.  I happen to think that is really great.  The truth is its own justification.  I will probably shy away from Rosenblums in the future, but I'll continue to try--not really very often--Malbec to see if I can find that eye-opener.Last month when we were up in Sonoma County I visited the Enkidu tasting...

  • The '07 Coudoulet was the biggest disappointment for me, if indeed there were no flaws to the bottle. The '02 Run Rig was flawed according to Alan, my palate was fried but I tended to agree. The Halcon wines were good, though I'm not sure how moving they were. They won for QPR anyway, and I put the '12 Halcon in the mix for the top wines of the ... Read More

  • Some years ago I was a very big fan of Rosenblum Zinfandels.  Something ... ripe Zinfandel fruit."The vineyards are named after long-time grower Tony Cutino's daughter, Carla Meadows, who has been a superlative supporter of saving these historic vineyards from the clutches of real estate developers."Since OT turned me into a Historic Vineyard ...

  • The first flight was '08 Copain and '09 Copain and Alturas. '08 being the year of the North Coast wildfires where so many wines were smoke tainted we were preparing for that here as well. Smoke taint occurs during flowering while the fruit is just beginning to set and that is the time of year that the fires burned out of control in Mendocino Cou... Read More

  • First off did I mention Mother Nature? She seems to have her ways of making my parties that much more successful. All week it had been overcast and gloomy. Saturday morning the sun broke through the temps jumped to about 82-83 and the wind all but ceased. The night went off without a need for the propane heater to be fired up although we did sit...

  • Le Ragnaie Vigna Vecchia Brunello di Montalcino 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Aromatic and rich with solid depth to the dark spice red cherry fruit.Notes of espresso beans are pronounced on the nose with delicate dried flowers on top. Soft textured, and elegant in weight in the mouth. More aromatic action energizes the red cherry fruit with dried herbs and dusty charred Earth. The finish has good length, more espresso, an...

  • January 27th saw the arrival of the Benvenuto Brunello road show, from The Fortezza in Montalcino, to Gotham Hall in Manhattan. The purpose of the event was to showcase (and welcome) the 2009 vintage of Brunello Di Montalcino, being as it was, the January five years after the harvest year.Approximately thirty producers were present to pour the w...

  • EM - Boy, it's been perhaps 30 years since we've been to the Hollywood Bowl.  That selection of music and the food / wine must have been a wonderful evening.  My wife Sandra would have been in heaven just with the music alone (she's an MSEE but she was studying music when I met her back in 1983).  The Barnett was a bit too fruity?  I don't know ...

  • Czarina, no, I don't have any experience on those at all.  Why don't you try them and report back to us?  The fact of the matter is that I drink very little Merlot.  I do like Keenan, but I must confess to a Keenan prejudice.  I don't think I've ever had a Keenan wine that I did not like.  The Keenan Napa Valley Merlot bottling runs, I believe, ...
