  • This past Monday science mag Cosmos published a story which explored the science behind the wine world's beloved – and sometimes besmirched term: terroir.  “In vino veritas – in wine there is truth – says the Latin proverb, but the truth behind how grapes ferment into a unique vintage is a mystery long cloaked by the term terroir,” the article b...

  • Jennifer T: KL just had a really interesting Oregon PN through Insider's Advantage.  If you order it and have them hold it at will call in SF, I will pick it up and save the delivery charge--just put my name in the comments section.  (They know me reasonably well so the name alone will do it, seeing as I'm the only one in their database with tha...

  • While traveling through Napa Valley last month I noticed that all the Vineyards I visited had roses planted around their crops. They're planted and watched closely for any early signs of infestation on the land. They monitor the Roses closely and upon early signs of problems, protective measures are taken to make sure the grape vines receive a s...

  • I suppose yet again another post by someone who has stumbled upon a bottle of fine wine that surpasses their abilities to appreciate and wishes to know how best to dispose of it.... Years ago my father was gifted the above named wine when he retired from ABC TV in Chicago. How he stored this bottle I do not know. Years ago he gave it to me and I... Read More

  • A couple of news items I was pondering today.First, Robert Parker came out with his ratings for the 2009 Bordeaux vintage. Ever the masochist, I decided to go look at some prices in the marketplace after the ratings were released. Some samplings:2009 Chatau Latour                        100 points                  $21,500 a case2009 Chateau Marg... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    ....una delle grandi soddisfazioni/"perversioni" di un Enoappassionato, è quella di conservare i vini per riassaggiarli col tempo. Ci piace verificarne l'evoluzione, riscontrarne la tenuta.

  • Not by me, however, at least not yet.  Wine writer Laurie Daniels (doesn't dmcker know her or do I misremember?) just published a column about Syrah here: http://www.mercurynews.com/laurie-daniel Although she generally was disappointed with the Syrahs she was asked to judge, she found much to like in the basic bottling of Qupe's Central Coast Sy...

  •  OK, add together Parker's influence over the past decade or two, Chinese money over the past few years, and a little bit of marketing acumen by LVMH, the Bordelaise and even the odd Southern Californian.

  • Article in our National newspaper today about Trading Standards seizing hundreds of fake bottles of Jacob's Creek from China. They are identical to the real thing apart from the label reading 'Wine of Austrlia' and they were selling for £2 a bottle. Read More
