  • It wasn't cold, but it was raining a lot. Everyone said it was really strange and not normal. When the rain stopped it was absolutely beautiful. I asked about flowering, etc., but nobody seemed too worried. I think it's a west coast thing though - I heard the other day that this is the coolest and wettest spring on record in the LA area.

  • Some wines.A Gruner Veltliner. Not bad. It would be interesting to see more of this grape planted up in BC. There were a few good Syrahs. The grape seems to lend itself to the region's diverse microclimates. I tried as many as I could. Vidal. Not many people were doing this grape. I bought it mostly for pedagogical purposes but at the same time,... Read More

  • So on a whim we decided to visit British Columbia. But we flew up to Washington, so visited a few places there too. Totally off the subject of wine, I found an awesome bakery in Spokane and the girl there served me this thing that I thought was a kind of Parmesan cheese foam. In fact it was fermented cashew whip, which was definitely weird, but ... Read More

  • The sweet wines are very different depending on the production method. I'm kind of a sugar slut so I like them all were someone to pour them, but as far as what I'd buy, that's a different story.  Top of the list for me are the botrytized wines and top of that list has to be Tokaj Aszú for the reasons mentioned - the poise between acidity and su...

The only sherry in the house is fino, though occasionally I'll buy olor... Read More
