  • 2016 is touted as slightly superior to 2015 - whatever that means; you may study the weather element and other properties contributing to a great vintage and make a determination yourselves... we all have to do that in the end.  I have no Cru from 2016 as yet.  In BC, I generally rely on the Bordeaux release by the BC Liquor Control Board, and t...

  • Anyone go to the 2019 version? They tasted the 2016 vintage.I got there really late so had to blast through at the rate of maybe one a minute. Maybe a little longer but not much as I only had an hour to taste as much as I could.So no notes, and I'm not big on those anyway, but a few observations that I really wish I had more time to explore. My ... Read More

  • Look, we need some injection of intelect here.  If I am to be that person, that is not sufficient.  I know many of your out there want something to chew on.  Well, let's do it!..  Read More

  • I like what I'm told is referred to a "jammy" wine. One example is Altmura. I know it's not sweet however to me it has somewhat of a sweet taste. Any recommendations of some wine to try?   Read More

  • One of the few real bargains left in France are found in the southern Rhone and Bouche du Rhône and fall under the appellation Cotes du Rhône and Cotes du Rhône-Villages.  These wines are delicious whether red or white, and are still affordable at good price to quality ratios.  Their copies in Australia, South Africa, Australia and North America...

  • This Topic is partially intended to start a new thread on daily wine drinking as the earlier topics are just too long and too general.  How about telling us more about your choices and helping me start a new thread for the next generation, so to speak?  The "why" is the interesting part for some of us - but pictures are always welcome; after all...

  • Okay, I still disagree.  We have a good selection of European wines here, but not AS GOOD as some places on the East Coast. If you are talking restaurants, there's RN74 for burg (and not much else, including food), a few places for Italian.  If you are talking wine stores, K&L for Bordeaux, North Berkeley for Burgundy, WineHouse for Burgundy and...

  • 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

  • At least one of the images that came up right away was that "Chablis."  Some of those PM wines were pretty sound, which is why I volunteered to go taste them if they are in the Bay Area.  The carafes? I suppose the lids had to be pretty air tight, since they also had to avoid slopping over, and there's not a lot of ullage there.  More surface ar... Read More

    Forum post in the topic 1978 Wines Found


  • While going through my grandmother's basement, we found 2 cases of wine. The first, 1978 Liebfraumilch Qualitatswein (with black pieces floating in it and an internet search that deemed it garbage even when bottled), and the second, Paul Masson Monterey County Chardonnay 1978 (Second Bottling). I've not been able to find anything out about the l... Read More
