  • I don't think I'd waste any wine on such a miserable event as what's in store later today.  In fact, my dignity is going to remain intact because I won't waste one second of my life witnessing it.  However, as it's my Thanksgiving weekend, I will be having some good wine. Read More

  • You guys know that I'm always one to push the limits.  In fact, I like to grab life by the pu##y.....er....let me rephrase that....I like to enjoy pairing wine with politics and things of this nature.  Anyone who knows me might not realize I am better with wine/event pairings than with wine/food pairings.  So, with that being said, I need to pai...

  • This one is from a Costco run.  To me, the blend is hilarious:  40% ... name for Tempranillo.  (Dare I guess that it translates to something like "grape from Aragon?")  It looks like Alicante Bouschet was hybridized in France in the mid 1800s, but, these days, less and less of that is grown there. However, apparently, it is widely planted in t... Read More

  • Frogs Leap Chardonnay Napa Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I was blown away by this wine. It may be that others score higher or lower, but I dare say that everyone will agree it's different - oh say pinot grigio different. Rick was the first to say so - I cautiously waited, but except for the lemongrass throughout and small creamy notes on the nose this is totally PG. A golden hay liquid with green melo... Read More

  • A truly epic day there...thanks for sharing Mike's thoughts on the Roumier. ... For top class red burg, I dare say  he's right. Roumier is a master, and there is some good 1er juice from Les Fuees going in to that village Chambolle, but more experienced collectors remember a day when it wasn't nearly as expensive. Of course, real estate was pre... Read More

  • I read about Jill's tumble, give her my best.  Did Jack ever get his crown fixed? Dare I say your palate shift is beginning? Prisoner is more like a manufactured wine these days. Dave Phinney always made it big and bold but the new winemaking team is making it pedestrian. Read More

  • DM, your description of the the malady that has hit your office sounds exactly ...  Mid-palate earthiness--dare I say "Rutherford Dust?"  Tannin is almost fully resolved.  Not the biggest CS I've ever had, but that is not a bad thing.  I'm a happy campe Read More
