Young's is one of the first vineyards you come to after turning onto Shenandoah Road in Plymouth. Over the years we have become an essential stop for a growing group of enthusiastic fans of our celebrated Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Sangiovese and Barbera. Young’s also offers a superb Roussanne. “Young’s Barbera is best in class,” says Rocklin landscape designer Scott Jardine. “All their wines are top drawer – they rival anything out of the Napa Valley.” Scott and several of his friends have been making annual jaunts to Shenandoah Valley to buy their favorite Young’s wine by the case. When we purchased the Property in 1992, there was an operating winery producing 1,000 cases of wine with seven acres of grapes. Today, production has increased to 6,000 cases and the place has expanded to 30 acres, including 10 acres of lawns, gardens and picnic grounds surrounding a tranquil pond.

  • Nico Part 2.Real nice lunch with a new friend. Went with the brussel sprouts again, some Tuna recommended by the waiter, and some Hangar steak, which was really good. The fish did not have much flavor, but once again it was excellent food in a great setting. I didn't get a chance to ask about the fish sources, though my Chicago native friend tho... Read More

  • Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee. So on short notice I decided to let them all know I was coming to town, and luckily I got a good tip on an excellent restaurant near my hotel, Nico Osteria. Have ... Read More

  • This is a report I adapted from my recap on WB. Unfortunately a few guests fell ill in the days prior and had to bow out. Missed you Richard! All in all it was a fun evening with some interesting wines. Plenty of left overs to start the next incarnation. Weather was rain in the AM and we feared having to host indoors but the skies cleared around... Read More

  • As a rule of thumb I decant every wine bottle north of $50 for at least 45 mins. During the 45 mins we usually enjoy half a glass of a daily drinker to get our palate ready for the really good stuff. Thoughts on this approach would be great? What's your approach other than PNP.....   Read More

  • Pinotage is a Brady Bunch grape. It was created by enmeshing two previously unrelated grapes to create a brand new entity which possesses its own compelling characteristics. In viticultural language this is called a crossing. If you really want to get technical, a crossing results when two grapes, both grown from vitis vinifera parent seed, are ... Read More

  • I was also wondering how this came back to life.I kind of agree wtih both OT and Fox. I think a wine has to be balanced when young - super tannic wine without anything else may or may not end up with softer tannins, but if there's nothing else, so what. OTOH, things like some of the older Dunns (not sure any more going forward) or Barolo/Barbare... Read More

  • How did this old thread come back to life?To be honest, when I was a kid, ToKalon was part of the mix of the Mondavi reserve.  It made great wine.  And I've had it since, but the branding is really out of control. OT, I agree with you in many, many things wne-related, and I think you can get a pretty good idea of where a wine is going even when ...
