  • I can imagine the hidden powers of that Alexander Valley wine.  Nice country up there, and when I went through there last (a while back, I concede) the wines seemed to have more finesse and elegance (those based on Cabernet Sauvignon, at any rate) than all but the best from the relatively close-by Napa-Sonoma region.  There is a certain purity a...

  • It is a chilly, sunny February afternoon in Napa Valley.  Tasting rooms are packed and wine routes are busy, much busier than I remember from previous visits.It’s been five years since my last visit to the region and just over a decade since I spent weekends roaming Napa’s wine routes while working on a nine-month project in the Bay Area.Napa se...

  • I am currently seeking out some of the better Western Cape wines of S. Africa... for that something different.  However, tonight, after inspecting a new propoerty I purchased on Vancouver Island, I was just to thirsty to look far afield and lighted on this very underrrated wine: Chateau de France 2015.  See review, if interested, on this site.  ...

  •  I love that there are wineries there producing relatively tiny volumes of wine like here. 75 cases in California?  Good luck finding that anywhere!  Buy it only at the winery probably eh? I posted an Apsara not too long ago that had a production of 37 cases.  I order their wines on-line from their website -- https://apsaracellars.com/ -- but I ...

  • Which western?  I rather liked Warlock (1959) with Fonda, Richard Widmark, anthony Quinn and Dorothy Malone (Oakley Hall novel) which I watched on YouTube a few months ago.  These morality tales are interesting given their setting.  I think a New Mexico Gruet Brut NV would be just the ticket.I have been drinking BC wines of late (as you can see ...

  • One more for the books.Kenneth Volk is well known for producing very tasty wines from oddball grapes and this one, made from Negrette is spot on.  Outside south-western France, Negrette is virtually extinct. A small pocket of plantings still exists in San Benito, California, where the variety was formerly known as Pinot Saint-Georges. There's a ... Read More

  • 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...

  • Becoming a multi-award winning winemaker takes hard work and dedication. Add strength, moxie, intelligence, and class and you’ve got Virginia Willcock, Vasse Felix chief winemaker since 2006. Outspoken about low intervention winemaking and passionate about expressing terroir in every sip, Willcock has elevated Vasse Felix, Margaret River’s found... Read More

  • Drank some 2015 Australian wines last night + an AlborinoThe Langmeil was tight and needs 102 more yrs laying down.  The Alborino was really nice - stone fruits, citrus, minerality ans acidity - juicy.  The  Torbreck was very good. Both red and darkberry fruits, earth, vanilla, moderate tannins and good acidity.The Jim Barry was good also - he's... Read More
