  • Had been to France a few times and had lots of wine, had a friend who was one of the first wine collectors I ever met, in the 1970s. Alas, the wines he served were wasted on me. I wish I could go back and thank him.Then I'd drink wine now and again randomly and sometimes remembered one that I liked but it wasn't a big deal. It was a Thanksgiving... Read More

  • I remember mine completely, just  like it was yesterday, all except for the producer which I think was Tyrrell, but after 40+ yrs the name has faded.  What remains vivid is the experience.  The place was in Freemantle, just outside Perth, in 1976.  Hungry for a good meal, myself and 2 friends chanced upon this spot.  It was owned by a WW2 refuge...

  • Right, what geeks or collectors drink is a drop in the bucket compared to the daily drinkers of countries where wine is a daily drink, maybe even two meals worth.  Airen is the glugging white grape of Spain, and covers a huge area, although the amount of wine may be less because it's grown in inhospitable climates that keep yields down--other gr...

  • Trying to recall a conversation we had a little while ago on this subject.Whats the most widely planted (acreage) and produced (bottles) red grape in CA, U.S., and worldwide?I seem to recall a Snooth article mentioning Grenache as the most widely planted red grape worldwide, but that was some years ago. I'm assuming it's Chardonnay for white? Read More

  • I wouldn't try to recommend wines at all given the scant information we have.  Instead, I would recommend finding a local wine store that offers tastings.  Nothing fancy, I'd look at either a chain that offers them periodically (even BevMo does it now, although I'd steer away since so many of their wines are bottled for them and not really somet...

  • Whoops, re read my post above.  That bottle will be good--let's go with a simpler construction. Might not be my style exactly, or maybe it will, but Lacombes is making that wine for someone, a lot of someones (at least those that can afford or splurge) and it racks up good press and comments.Wow, JD, that is some tight space in the hallway.  The...

    Forum post in the topic What have you bought lately?


  • OK, this is a topic that hasn't come up recently but has many times in the past. How to store wine in the house? Whether to refrigerate?  How to choose passive or refrigerated wine cellars? What kind of wine fridges are best?  Etc., etc.I was doing some real estate shopping in the Ventura/Santa Barbara counties area and ran across a higher-end h... Read More

    Forum post in the topic How not to store wine


  • I've actually started looking at points again, esp Parker for some wines.  Take Syrah, for example.  If Parker likes a Syrah,  especially from Santa Barbara, I feel pretty sure it's a gloopy mess that I want nothing to do with.  If it's a Syrah from the Rhone, it's been treated to a lot of oak...  In fact, I think that Parker has done more harm ...

    Forum post in the topic High End Cabernet Sauvignon


  • Interesting.  I bit on the Mending Wall mailing a few weeks ago.  I'm not sure I've ever had a TRB wine, before.I was questioning whether wines that I can buy in a local retail store--e.g., Insignia and Opus which are produced in quite high volumes--qualify as cults.  I guess though if you look them as wines that hoarders will buy every year for...
