  • There were three of us, or actually 2 1/2 since my wife didn't drink much and doesn't like whites. The burgers were going to be 50/50 bacon/beef, which opened a world of possibilities so we decided to go all-American. Halcón Vineyards Prado to start, a 50.50 Marsanne/Rousanne blend that would have gone really well with the mushroo... Read More

  • The Rhône holds a large piece of my heart for one big, unctuous reason: ... ... doux to Viognier, I will dare not say that the Rhône’s best comes from white grapes. Eighty percent of Rhône wines are produced from red grapes with a heavy focus on Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvedre -- and with good reason.  If not for the Northern Rhône, we never wo... Read More

  • Al - blind tasting is a great way to learn. However, it's better if you ... you ... more nuanced wines, dare I say, wines with "finesse"?That's nonsense. The people who claim that either haven't done any blind tasting or they just aren't very astute tasters, or perhaps, like some writers, they just have some kind of agenda that they want to p...

  • Sandra and I were fortunate yesterday to attend a quickly sold out (57 minutes after the e-mail went out to the RdV Ambassador members, it was fully booked) 'Introduction to Blind Tasting' class at our favorite Northern Virginia winery, RdV.  Getting our two slots in this class was tough, as we didn't call them until 5 or 6 hours after their e-m...

  • New Year’s Eve is fast approaching, and sparkling wines are on our minds. I love Champagne and recommend that people think of it more as a wine and pair it with dinner instead of just aperitifs and pre-meal toasts. Perhaps owing to its historic association with quality, a good Champagne can approach a hundred dollars a bottle, and really good ju... Read More
