  • Thanks for the mention Outthere! Greatly appreciated.Grenache in the US is certainly on the rise at this time. One must remember that before the mid 1990's, our plant materials were not that good - generally bigger cluster, bigger berry clones that one was able to crop heavily in order to make simple, fruity wines from.That changed with Tablas C...

  • 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

  • Darren--'09 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, '11 Block 28 Zin and '11 Blocks 2 & 22 Zin.  You may or may not have seen OT's comment about the difficulty with '11 Zins from Napa Valley.  So, we'll see about these, but, probably, not for, at least, a few months.Well, last night we met nephew and his wife at a wine bar in Fullerton.  They are back f...

  • Just got this from Adam Lee. Meeting up with eMark and Foxall Monday for dinner. Should we change venues and do this? Not at all familiar with what Virginia has to offer. Hey All, Not sure if this is the proper place to post this, but wanted to invite all of you in the Santa Rosa area to a tasting of Virginia wines that we are hosting next Monda...

    Forum post in the topic Secret Santa 2013 for wine....


  • I won't deny it:  I envy you. Just spent a bunch of time emailing with JonDerry about N. Rhones, and how tiny the production is.  These great top-end wines are not just expensive, but incredibly hard to find compared to other red wine regions--there's less red planted in the whole N. Rhone than Chateauneuf alone.  The quality is, to my thinking,... Read More

  • During Vinexpo 2013 last month – the world’s largest wine fair held once every two years in Merignac just outside Bordeaux – I tasted a fine lineup of Paul Jaboulet wines at the La Lagune stand. The Frey Family, which also owns Chateau La Lagune in the Medoc, acquired Paul Jaboulet Aîné in 2006 and Caroline Frey – whom I interviewed recently – s... Read More

  • Carnivores and grillers, a few reasons to love Syrah: it’s a fantastic wine for pairing with any roasted meats, especially red meats like beef and lamb, as well as wild game.

  • Sine Qua Non Mr. K the Noble Man 2005

    Snoothrank:

    100% Chardonnay with fruit from the Alban vineyard, this is a fully botrytised sweet wine that sits plumply at 235 grs/L. The 2005 is a regal wine that is one of the great dessert wines of the world. Sadly, the esteemed Alois Kracher whose Kracher wines I place on a padestal is no longer with us. An amazing deep golden colour with fragrances of ... Read More
