  • I'll start this one off with a comparison of two Cabernet Franc wines, both from Virginia USA.  The year is 2015, and the wineries are in Southern Virginia and Northern Virginia.  The Keswick Vineyards 2015 Cabernet Franc was a bit tart and tannic.  Not my favorite by any means.  We bought it because we did a tasting there last year and you need...

  • Time for some horizontal tasting.  This topic is specifically to address commonalities and differences between the same grape varietal (or blend) and same year of bottling, but at different wineries or different vineyards of the same winery.  Take a picture of your two or more bottle comparisons and tell us which is better.  If you can, provide ...

  • We enjoyed Friday, finally taking a break from cleaning up after our 2-week trip to Douglas, Wyoming for that solar eclipse on 21 August.  Pictures for that adventure will be placed in a web page soon.  Meanwhile, after a nice massage for me, we had a late lunch at Seasons 52 and then headed over to one of our wineries (Stone Tower Winery) for a...

  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More

  • Sorry to be morbid, but what’s your ‘death bed’ wine; the last glass you’ll taste in this life? Mine’s Puligny-Montrachet, the famous but expensive white Burgundian. The big price tag is no hassle if it’s your final pleasure but on a Wednesday evening? Yep, that may be a problem! “But is it possible to buy good value White Burgundy?”, a friend a... Read More

  • Wine has the unique ability to, at the same time, stand inside and outside of history. This past week Villa Torlonia, a museum and estate near Rome, opened to visitors the doors of its World War II-era bomb shelter. Before the underground hideout served as a refuge from possible air attacks, it served as a wine cellar for infamous dictator Benit... Read More

  • When Tony and Herta (H.B.) purchased their 30-acre Rutherford property in 1982, the vineyard grounds were wild and overgrown. Through passion and hard work, the Peju family has transformed their Rutherford Estate into Peju—a wine, architecture, and art lover’s paradise. Today, 30 years later, Peju remains a family-owned and family-run estate win...

  • On my recent visit to Piedmont I included five producers in the neighboring village of Barbaresco since I've often given them short shrift. Known as the Queen of Nebbiolo, in contrast to Barolo the King, Barbaresco has a reputation for being a softer, more elegantly styled example of Nebbiolo. While this is undoubtedly true, the accompanying sen... Read More

  • Not, I repeat not, a thread about whether the 2009 Bordeaux is great, but more about whether you trust the reviews. After the 2009 en primeur week, the opinion is unsurprisingly about a brilliant "vintage of the decade". I think this is the 3rd in the last 10 years n'est-ce-pas? So do we need to review how we review the en primeur? Do you trust ... Read More
