  • It is quite clear that a vast majority of domestic wines are "ready to drink" on release.  That is not to say that some, by no means all, will improve and will provide the patient owner enjoyable sensory benefits.Over the years I have enjoyed, maybe, a dozen, or so, California Cabernet Sauvignons with more than 20 years on them--and just for cla...

  • On Saturday afternoon, Zufrieden and I went to a fellow wine aficionado's place for a cabernet sauvignon (at least 80%) blind tasting. Zuf decanted and brought a 2014 Boekenhoutskloof "Stellenbosch" (92% cs, 8% cab franc).I decanted and brought a 2012 Quilceda Creek "CVR" (83% cs, 11% merlot, 4% cf, 1% pv, 1% malbec)  and I brought a 2008 Stormy...

  • This past September, I visited a number of small, medium, and large German wineries in Baden, Württemberg, and the Pfalz regions. There is a false belief in the wine world that small wineries produce higher quality wines than larger operations, especially cooperative wineries (or co-ops). However, the patchwork of family stories and wines I tast... Read More

  • DV, Lynn and I managed to take a peek at Vessel this afternoon while cruising Oak Bay (sorry, I did not want to invite myself over... left you to recover from a week of work instead).  But on the little store in that quiet little commercial spot at the junction of Pandora and Fort, it is of, I would say, medium size, stock-wise, but owning a gre...

  • I dare say you are right concerning the general level of quality GT.  I have not been buying as much wine of late (although I did buy a coupe of cases of intermediate level - mostly - 2016 Bordeaux due to the obviously high quality there).  Hence, you now almost certainly know more about the contemporary BC wine scene than I - although DV keeps ...

  • Blaufränkisch is a Cabernet lover’s best friend, but still very much its own grape. And that's an asset in today’s wine climate. Generations of wine drinkers stuck to the same old grapes - but this is an era that privileges discovery. Blaufränkisch is not new, per say, but an increasing number of Americans are gulping it down by the bottle. Plan... Read More

  • I can imagine the hidden powers of that Alexander Valley wine.  Nice country up there, and when I went through there last (a while back, I concede) the wines seemed to have more finesse and elegance (those based on Cabernet Sauvignon, at any rate) than all but the best from the relatively close-by Napa-Sonoma region.  There is a certain purity a...

  • So on a whim we decided to visit British Columbia. But we flew up to Washington, so visited a few places there too. Totally off the subject of wine, I found an awesome bakery in Spokane and the girl there served me this thing that I thought was a kind of Parmesan cheese foam. In fact it was fermented cashew whip, which was definitely weird, but ... Read More

  • Here is a picture of the 2006 Balckwood Lane Reference.  I obtained it by accident at a retailer who had been keeping a fair number of vintage wines from the best producers in BC... Painted Rock, Osoyoos Larose, Road 13, Blackwood Lane, Note Bene and a couple of others.  It was an unusual find and I also got these gems at a very good price.  I h... Read More
