Today, the winemaking torch has been passed into the skillful hands of a carefully selected team headed by Executive Winemaker, Bob Cabral. They share a passion that requires a strong but intuitive approach, given the capricious nature of the varietal.

  •  Dmcker asked for a guided tour of the "True" Sonoma Coast wineries. That can be a handful since many wineries source fruit from the "True" but don't necessarily make their homes there. The tour could start in Freestone or Cazadero and end up on Howell Mountain in the Napa Valley. With that in mind I'll try to break the tour up into parts that c... Read More

  • So who goes to a Mexican restaurant thinking about wine?Not many people, but ... such as Kistler, Ramey and Williams Selyem. I like the fact that they’ve also included a Long Island Chardonnay here, the 2004 Lieb Familly Cellars Reserve, which is very fairly priced at $47.

    Snoothrank:

    Incredibly rich, smooth pinot. Nose of black cherry, blackberry and some raspberry. Very rich and fruity in the mouth with the same fruits, but also nice robust tannins and incredible persistence. Read More
