“Hock, Moselle And The Rest”

Wed, 08 Oct 2014 01:42:21 +0000

I recently began rereading George Saintsbury’s classic, “Notes on a Cellar-Book.” The 1920 volume was one of my first wine books read back in the early 1980’s that I had not thought much about since. With time – and much more context and experience with wine – I am finding the book a fascinating window […]

Cameron Hughes, Lot 467, Lodi Field Blend 2012 ($9)

Wed, 01 Oct 2014 22:59:29 +0000

I have written and podcasted many times over the years about my love of California Zinfandel and Zin-lead field blends. The tradition of the field blend was brought to California by Italian immigrants over 100 years ago and some of the most individual expressions of this tradition are still bearing fruit in Sonoma’s Dry Creek […]

WBW80: Dry Rosé

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 02:19:03 +0000

Back when I first started podcasting about wine, in late 2004, there were maybe 40 podcasts in the world. But there were even fewer wine blogs and soon I discovered the monthly tasting event called Wine Blogging Wednesday joining on its eighth outing back in early 2005. Over the years I have participated in WBW […]

Announcing Wine Blogging Wednesday 80, Dry Rosé

Thu, 18 Jul 2013 01:57:15 +0000

Back in the the first year of wine blogging (2004 for those just joining us) Lenn Thompson of LENNDEVOURS (now New York Cork Report) made a modest proposal and Wine Blogging Wednesday (WBW) was born. I joined the monthly virtual tasting back at WBW 7 in early 2005 and have continued off and on over […]

“Chance has a great deal to do with the awards that wines win.”

Tue, 25 Jun 2013 01:04:30 +0000

The results here are not that surprising to me given the venue. At a state fair the conditions are far from ideal and the judges have to taste too many wines in a short period of time. I have always believed a wine should be tasted over a period of time (1-2 days minimum) and […]

Beaujolais is arguably the best value in red wine right now and Lyle has an excellent list here to back up this claim. via Rockss and Fruit

What Makes A Wine “Authentic”?

Wed, 19 Jun 2013 00:31:11 +0000

As is often the case, Steve Heimoff has posted a “think piece” on his blog today. And judging by the relatively few comments at the time I write this most readers are just doing that; thinking. His post is on authenticity in wine and how difficult and subjective it is to define. In the end, […]

The Perils of Posting On April Fools’ Day

Fri, 05 Apr 2013 18:13:37 +0000

Back in the day, I participated in April Fools pranks with posts that hopefully brought a smile to the face of the reader. But after one such post fell flat, even garnering angry comments years later, I decided to hang it up. Face it, wine is not that funny to begin with and most wine […]

Wine In The ‘Shark Tank’

Mon, 13 Aug 2012 22:43:13 +0000

Reality TV is all the rage these days but I rarely watch this genre outside of a few cooking competition shows like Top Chef or Masterchef. But I have been hooked this year by ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’. The show’s premise is simple; entrepreneurs pitch their products to a panel of well known investors (‘sharks’) such […]

WBW 76: Barossa Boomerang

Thu, 26 Apr 2012 02:46:13 +0000

Not too long ago I drank quite a bit of Australian wine, particularly Shiraz. Given that this grape, also known as Syrah, expresses greatness in the Barossa Valley I could not pass an opportunity to revisit this region for this months’ Wine Blogging Wednesday. Our host, Adam from Wine Zag, proposed we look for any […]

OTBN 13: A Night of Regret & Discovery

Tue, 28 Feb 2012 01:12:58 +0000

Although I was an avid and longtime reader of Dottie Gaiter and John Brecher’s weekly Wall Street Journal wine column, I never have participated in Open That Bottle Night (OTBN). Started in 2000, the event was created as an excuse to open a special wine that remains for whatever reason languishing in your cellar. I […]

TMiW 2 – The Tastes They Are A-Changin’

Mon, 27 Feb 2012 01:29:27 +0000

Jeff Lefevere and I return to review the top wine stories of the past month including tongue-twisting wine names, a disturbing wine manifesto, trends in wine marketing, the stellar 2009 Bordeaux vintage and much more. Hosts: Tim Elliott and Jeff Lefevere Topics If the wine is hard to pronounce, is it worth more? Has wine […]

Wine & The Connected Consumer

Thu, 23 Feb 2012 20:55:33 +0000

Randall Grahm is one of the true characters of the American wine scene. A self-styled terroirist, intuitive branding genius and all around eccentric, Grahm has taken his Bonny Doon Vineyard on quite a ride over nearly the past 30 years. After setting out in 1983 to make great Pinot Noir in California, Grahm was drawn […]

WBW 74 Wrap-up: 39 Sparkling Values

Sat, 18 Feb 2012 19:23:40 +0000

This is my fifth time hosting Wine Blogging Wednesday, our monthly virtual tasting event, but my enthusiasm has not diminished with the passage of time. In fact, since bringing back the event from hiatus it looks like the idea might be picking up some steam judging from the entires this month. While many of the […]

WBW 74: Value Sparkling Wine

Wed, 15 Feb 2012 21:00:00 +0000

Sparkling wine is thought of by most American’s as a luxury to be consumed on special occasions like weddings, graduations and New Year’s eve parties. And that’s a shame since sparkling wine is so versatile at the table, pairing with a wide variety of food, made all over the world and available at every price point. Perhaps […]

Charles Shaw: What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been

Sun, 05 Feb 2012 01:03:39 +0000

This week stories about the 10 year anniversary of Charles Shaw wines began to hit the news. If there is a single wine brand I get asked about by people not into wine, it’s this Trader Joe’s success story. The funny thing is the story of Charles Shaw started over 35 years ago but few […]

Announcing WBW 74: Value Sparkling Wine

Mon, 23 Jan 2012 23:46:08 +0000

One of the wine trends from 2011 is the rise of Champagne with American consumers up over 20% from  2010. Another trend was Moscato coming out of nowhere to become nearly an overnight success. This could be in part due to the charms of the lightly sparkling frizzante made from this grape in Italy. Sparkling […]

The Rise of Muscat, a Sign of The Apocalypse?

Sat, 21 Jan 2012 18:35:08 +0000

There was a good story in the Wall Street Journal recently about the rise of Muscat, the sweet white wine made all over the world but closely associated with Italy where it is called Moscato. Last year this grape took off growing nearly 80% in sales from the year before. Nobody in the wine business […]

WBW 73: My Wine Spark

Wed, 18 Jan 2012 23:47:31 +0000

I first found out about Wine Blogging Wednesday in late February of 2005 when Andrew from Spittoon sent me an email inviting me to participate in WBW 7. Back then the wine blogging world was a small group of sites and we frequently commented on each others posts and traded emails. I was intrigued with […]

Just 2 Weeks Until WBW 73

Thu, 05 Jan 2012 02:36:54 +0000

Just a friendly reminder that Wine Blogging Wednesday 73 is just two weeks away. Our host, The Corkdork, has asked us to revisit the wine that first got your attention to learn more about wine. This could be a carafe of rosé in Paris, Sassicaia 1988, a random bottle of Cahors or Inglenook Cask 1958. Or […]

Rex Pickett’s “Life on Spec”

Tue, 20 Dec 2011 00:37:13 +0000

I have written quite a bit here about Sideways, a rare film that somehow combines wine, humor and middle age crisis into an Academy Award winning package. But until recently I had no idea how close Sideways came from never being made. In a series of posts by author Rex Pickett over at the Stage […]

Last minute holiday gift ideas for wine lovers

Sun, 18 Dec 2011 23:00:46 +0000

From what I am reading, this week will make or break the year for retailers. So I don’t think it’s too late to post some gift ideas for wine lovers. We are a difficult bunch to buy for with the most obvious gift — wine — somewhat intimidating for our friends and family to gift. […]

Wine Shield: A Simple Idea That Works

Sun, 11 Dec 2011 22:59:10 +0000

Preserving an open bottle of wine is one of those things wine lovers don’t talk a lot about. For many of us a bottle is not open long enough for the exposure to air to spoil the wine. But there are those times when you open a special bottle or, in my case, 4 or […]

Wine Blogging Wednesday Returns January 18, 2012

Sun, 11 Dec 2011 00:30:30 +0000

It doesn’t seem possible that it has been nearly 7 years since I started participating in Wine Blogging Wednesday our virtual wine tasting event which has been infrequent for the past 18 months or so. And that’s a shame since the wine blogging community seems a bit more fragmented than back in 2005 when I […]

Wine is a thread running through our lives

Sat, 10 Dec 2011 18:25:07 +0000

Last evening I participated in a Twitter tasting of Bordeaux wines. One of the producers in the tasting had acted in a short film and a link to it was tweeted out. I bookmarked the link and returned to it today for a look mostly out of curiosity and was pleasantly surprised with what I […]
