  • We're heading back to (my favorite wine region) Russian River the first weekend in October and are looking for advice on what to do and what to expect.  We've been to RRV several times but only during the off season.  Is there anything special we should do at this time of year, and conversely, is there anything we should avoid?

  • Mark, the X is their trade mark. Look at the label and see where Orleans is on the map of Humboldt County. X marks the spot. They put that X on all their corks. The Cabots make some killer Syrahs as well as Rhone blends. All from some of the northernmost vineyards in California.Now for something completely different. A local wine made by husband...

  • Elsewhere you can read about the offline I attended with OT and GdP and a bunch of winemakers, winelovers, and the like.  But on the way there, I think I solved a major problem with California wine; over conversation with GdP and an assistant winemaker from Napa, my belief was confirmed.I read in an obituary of Aldo Conterno that he had come to ...

  • A few days ago I tasted a wine that aged in cement. I looked for more information on aging wine in cement but I didn't find much. If someone can tell me more about the process of aging wine in cement (and the benefits of doing so) then I would very much appreciate it.The wine was a Montecucco DOC. You can find my tasting notes for it here. http:... Read More

  • I'm sitting around on this President's Day holiday (banks are closed, no postal delivery, stock markets are closed), and this popped into my mind.  My recollection is that 30 or so years ago the only wine bottles that had punts in their bottom where for Champagne or other sparkling wines.  Then punts started appearing in all kinds of still wines...

  • Well, it's a momentous time for a couple of us snoothers. Hope OT doesn't mind me sharing that he made the Saxum list last week, while today I got my first offer to buy Shafer Hillside Select. Since I bought, I'm now on the list...think it was about a three year wait for each of us. So much for not buying wine until summer! Read More

  • I was going to put this in the Whatcha Drinking Tonight thread. But since there was some Syrah talk going on I thought I'd start a new thread on Cool Climate Syrah.Tonight I'm visiting a wine I haven't had in since May and wanted to see how it is progressing. It comes from high up atop the Yorkville Highlands in the Anderson Valley  which is in ... Read More

  • In another thread, I posted about my trip to the California Central Coast wine region.  One of the tasting rooms that I visited was the Ojai Vineyards, and among the wines that we tasted there was a 2006 Syrah.  I happened to overhear one of the other customers remark that 2006 seemed to have a few years of age on it for a current release.  The ...

  • All my scotch friends have special "end of the world" bottles. I suspect that many of us do, too. So, considering that the end of the world is supposed to happen in a matter of days per our Mayan friends, and that happens to coincide with the Christmas season.....what are you planning to open this Christmas?  If the world starts to come apart de...
