  • Good timing, Emark, as I will be getting a half case of Ed Sbragia's Gino's Vineyard Zin this week.  Ed made one of my favorite wines at Project Zin, which I wrote up a few years ago.  Tops in the Zin and PS world by me.  Really nice guy, too.  Stayed in a room named for his family at the Dry Creek Inn last year, and laughed at the connection.Ok...

  • One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend.  Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we?  Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an...

  • Robin is now the head winemaker at Swanson, where I would like to go visit him.  They have excellent vineyards and his breath-of-fresh-air presence will probably jolt the label up to new heights.On your Dry Creek list, I'd consider dropping Murphy-Goode and Dry Creek if you want to avoid big/corporate.  M-G is now owned by Kendall Jackson.  Stil...

We are from New York and want to focus o... Read More

  • On and off with differing frequency mention is made on these boards of garnacha as a choice for certain palates, and in certain contexts. Most of the mention here is pretty generic, and doesn't get down to any level of detail.Would like to suggest we take up the subject of wines from this grape with better focus. Where is good, who makes the goo... Read More
