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. In this year’s “Best of Summer” special section, the Sacramento Bee named Young’s the Read more »

  • After much agony and discernment, I have chosen the official wine for my Super Bowl party this year. Over the 9 years I've hosted this event, it is probably the least exotic selection, not to mention least expensive.  Given the fact chili is the main dish (oh please, don't turn your nose. After all, we're American pigskin fans, not Bolsheviks), ... Read More

  • I have been lurking for the past few months but have decided to be a contributor in 2015. My interest is in California Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa, Sonoma and Paso Robles-Blends),  Washington Cab Sav & Merlot and some daily drinkers from Chile and Argentina. I have visited Napa, Sonoma and Paso a few times in the past 5 years but look forward to co... Read More

  • I received a nice bottle of Ice Wine from a friend. Although I understand it goes well with fruit and desserts how do I drink this wine?Is there a way to prepare myself with food, wine temperature or do I just open it and sip it?I have never tasted this wine and don't know what to expect other than it's sweet like Sauternes.

  • No mystery I love Syrah and got turned onto it some years ago by a N. Rhone that I had at a restaurant in Sonoma.  But here it goes again, latest estimates for the auction price at HartDavisHart:1983 Côte Rôtie, Côte Brune, Cuvée Reservée, Marius Gentaz-Dervieux (12 bs) $15000-22000Now I grant you that's not exactly DRC or Latour level pricing ...

  • Turns out underground cellars don't have a monopoly on wine aging. This past week, Beverage Daily's Rachel Arthur featured a story about how California's Mira Winery is aging their wine in South Carolina's Charleston Harbor.  The winery's owner Jim Dyke, Jr., got the idea after reading about how explorers found well-preserved sparkling wine from...

  • With an output of over 1.2 million litres a year, Canada is by far the world’s largest producer of icewine or “liquid gold” as it is often called. That is a considerable feat, given that icewine originated in Europe a long time ago. While some people believe icewine dates back to Roman times, it reappeared, quite by accident, in Franconia, Germa...

  • Mark, I am partly responsible for the confusion because earlier (like, three years ago) I used barrique generically to mean "barrel," which is the translation but not the connotation.  Barrique are smaller barrels, 225 liters (60 gallons) used in Bordeaux.  You can get barrels with the same dimension made with American oak, but barrique almost a...

  • This offer from Ian Cauble is looking pretty attractive, too... Winter has officially arrived here in California—temperatures are dropping, there is waist-deep snow in the Sierras, and almost every night I catch myself craving hearty cuisine and robust, meaty red wines. More often than not, this impulse leads me to a bottle of Nebbiolo. And whil... Read More

  • In this case, a '79 Mondavi Chardonnay Reserve stole the show. Just the fact that it was still upright, despite passive cellaring (another from a previously discussed estate sale my neighbor scored on) was enough to write about. However, this surprisingly gave some real, almost sublime pleasure, despite being on the precipice of oxidation. It dr... Read More
