  • My reading of Mark's use of the word, JD, was that it was merely meant in its historical sense of an enterprise engaged in commerce. Not the pejorative later use of the term, of such an enterprise that was only focused towards and always thinking about making money and not about a range of honest exchanges with customers and others. Regarding re...

  • Mark, interesting notes for a Spanish red.  Looking at my CT inventory, we drank a bottle of the '10 vintage of this back in January but I didn't write any tasting notes, must not have made much of an impression. I have another bottle in the wine closet, might have to dig it out sooner rather than later. Read More

  • And for me a Dolcetto-based wine is, definitely, completely different. I'm definitely going to go back for more ot this <$20 wine.  Very interesting in that the first hit on the tip of the tongue is big berry and stone fruit flavors.  However, this quickly diminishes and I'm getting very serious tannin.  You know how over on CT reviewers love to...

  • One thing about the old Barolos that Chambers sells:  Go back far enough and there's no traditionalist vs. modernist concern.  It's all traditional.  That said, Jamie is pretty careful about provenance, buying small quantities from collectors and tasting them himself (we did quite a bit of it on the trip in 2014, as he was checking out a couple ...

  • That's pretty funny, Fox.When I started inventorying my wine, sometime in the early 1980s, I had a looseleaf binder with columnar ledger sheets.  When I consdered column headings, I was pretty sure I wanted to note the name of the wine and the vintage date.  Beyond that I thought the source would be neat, the purchase price, and the date purchas...

  • Or Santa Lucia Lowlands, as Josh Jensen calls it.  You sit in his winery and literally look across the Salinas Valley's south end and down at SLH.  It's at most a benchland.  Funny.  I used to really like the Roars from there, but have drifted away from them.  Sierra Mar is higher than the rest, but still only 1200 feet or so. We don't celebrate...

  • Burgundy on a Budget.  You get to write that column.  I have to say, $50-60 is not exactly budget in my world, but I drink wine every night.  If you bargain shop Chablis 1ers, which is pretty much all the Chardonnay I consume, you can get really good things for $25 or so.  It does have to be opportunistic. Looking at my CT, looks like my Burgund...

  • As I mentioned elsewhere, I just returned from a trip to the east coast with plenty of wine-less and bad wine evenings.  Unless you are in NYC or at one of the higher end restos in Boston, a good glass is hard to come by.  How did I cope?  Drank beer some nights, suffered withdrawal on others.  Ate cuisine that wouldn't go well with most wines t...

  • MY FIRST VISIT TO BERN'S STEAKHOUSE - Tampa (4/8/2017)Like any true wine geek when I was informed of a trade show in Tampa my first thought was "I'm making reservations at Bern's." I have friends who live in Tampa about 3 min from the restaurant so we hooked up for a fun three top. Rachel came recommended as a Somm so I requested her in advance.... Read More

  • One of my few discoveries this year has been CA Viognier of all things.As per usual, someone on WB posted the details of the latest Dirty & Rowdy release, and at first glance, it seemed like a release I wouldn't be interested in....then I got to remembering a 2014 Kamen Viognier that a friend opened recently (in India nonetheless), and how surpr...
