  • There's really nothing affordable on the Peninsula any more these days. I grew up in SF/San Bruno/San Mateo/Belmont before the tech boom and it was pretty laid back. I am so glad I don't live there any longer. Open spaces are all but paved over, those little cottage homes are now McMansions, population explosion, traffic, commercialism, it makes... Read More

  • Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year.  With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year.  And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win...

  • Hello all,I'm not actually a beginner in wine preparation. I started preparing wine 3 months ago. I've tasted different varieties of wine and my favorite is Merlot wine. I had a doubt earlier on how to store the prepared wine. I searched many sources and asked many friends and  I happened to read an article yesterday which had tips to properly s... Read More

  • Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

  • Post here about wines that used to satisfy, but for whatever reason (corporate buyout, founder dying, price gouging or other repositionings resulting from lusting lunges towards greater monetary reward, etc., etc. ad nauseum) have either disappeared or now become a disappointment. The more story, the better.I'll get the ball rolling with some si... Read More

  • Ok, new year and time for a new topic of discussion.  Just yesterday I opened this Pinot Noir from California that initially sounded promising.  First  - it was given to Sandra as a retirement gift so it was free.  Second - a Pinot Noir bottled in St. Helena CA, so it has to be decent, right? and Third - a nice looking label.  Well, this 2014 Me...

  • Hello wine lovers. Im a newby. I find that I love a Mendoza Malbec  like its oxygen and Nineteen Crimes cab is to die for ( althouth not in the way some of the criminals may have in route to australia) . I also am enjoying some less complex but well balanced red blends like Apothic. My favorite malbec so far is Alamos and Cigar Box is pretty nic... Read More

  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • I think this is one of RBA's favorite wineries This is another Costco wine, and, I have to say, for $15 it is a winner.  It reminds me of a Zin from the 1980s--brambly is the word they always used.  Energetic blackberry on entry.  Reasonable tannin and acid for body.  We're going to have a pasta/sausage dish tonight and this will be just fine.No...

  • Al, Von's is a brand of Safeway.  Safeway was merged into Albertson's earlier this year and is operated as a subsidiary.  As a requirement for FTC approval of the merger they had to divest something over 100 stores.  Haggen's was a little Washington supermarket chain. Almost overnight they grew from 18 to 164 store locations.  In my town we had ... Read More
