So, a week after moving to my new residency location, we pawned off the two year old on the grandparents and headed for the hills of California.We arrived i... Read More

  • Hi all!Hoping to wade into interesting wine talk (and food talk).  Me, I've been seriously enjoying and exploring wine for just over 20 years. On the red side, right now I'm partial to wines from Spain and the Rhone valley, but other loves are Oregon pinots, really good Italian wines (yes, it's endless, but that's the fun), and wanting to try mu...

  • So, do you have your wine planned out yet for the Thanksgiving meal? I'm going a bit off course this year as I am smoking my turkey so I'm probably going to go heavy on Syrah rather than Pinot Noir. But that could change based on input from the guests.First off I'll likely pop a 2010 Copain Baker Ranch Syrah as it shows quite Pinot-like and I ha... Read More

  • Had a great trip to Walla Walla last week (just got back on Tuesday) and had a lovely time tasting wines and touring vineyards.  I'll give you the quick recap here and then provide links to my blog with more details. I arrived late night on Wednesday the 26th, and then started tasting wine on the 26th.  My first stop on  the tour was the Seven H...

  • I generally avoid wine clubs of any sort, even at my favorite wineries--I'm too promiscuous to sign up to drink 12 or 24 botles of someone's wine in a year--but I am a member of Mauritson's Rockpile list, because there's no longer any way to get the Cemetery Zinfandel and good luck getting any of the others, either.  Since I have in-laws up that...

  • Kuleto "India Ink" Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    From the estates rockiest vineyard block, located at altitude and producing small berries comes this powerful wine. On the nose its a black hole, filled with dusty minerals, charcoal, scorched earth, and black fruits. On the palate this is dark and richly tannic with toasty piecrust notes from the oak and a sharp edge of minty spice helping to d... Read More

  • Had one of those once in a lifetime days betting the ponies today.  With the winnings, i'm probably going to be budgeting up to $1500.00 on some more expensive wines I haven't been able to afford in the $80-$200 range.  Any suggestions?  I favor a right-bank bordeaux style for reds but also enjoy a medium bodied cabernet style, along with rhone ...

  •  Since my queries of this nature are usually tagged to the end of other threads of (somehwat) related nature, I figured I'd start one of dedicated nature. Hopefully this'll be easier to search for and come back to in the future.Here's an offer from HDH in Chicago. Anything of particular interest, or of relatively good pricing? This offer seems a...
