2017 Desparada Fragment Sauvignon Blanc – Again

This wine is more than just a "pop and pour" Sauvignon Blanc. It is sensual, luxurious, fragrant, and very delicious.

Honeymoon, Africa, Cape Town, and Wine!

Before you jump to conclusions, no, I'm not (re)married! This post is by my friend and today's guest author, Andras. He recently remarried and he and his new wife honeymooned in the wine country of South Africa around Cape Town.

Wine Spectator Grand Tour Las Vegas! And an Oops.

The concept of the Wine Spectator Grand Tour is pretty simple: showcase over 240 90+ point wines to ravening oenophiles. Period.

Rhône Blend Redefined – It’s “Everything”!

The addition of the Bordeaux varietals makes this wine an unusual one that is a perfect match to the American palate.

Vegas Uncork’d Grand Tasting

It would be undignified to roll around on the pool deck because one may have eaten just a bit too much.
Hells Kitchen Las Vegas

Red Kitchen. Blue Kitchen. Hell’s Kitchen!

Reservations to the hottest new restaurant in Vegas has been as rare as dentition in Gallus gallus domesticus (hen’s teeth).
Knights vs Avalance

HOCKEY!!!! No Wine This Time!

Philly fans have a less-than-stellar reputation in comparison to more sedate fans. Like in New York, for instance.

Rants!

It Stinks! No Matter How Good it Smells!

Except when someone decides to pollute my wine experience with their cologne. I mean really people.

Southern Oregon Wine Country – the Trip

People get off and on the bus at the various stops from the Strip to Downtown, and any number of them are worthy of a Night Court episode.

Rant Rant Rant Rant. My Opinion. And I Share It.

I will admit that some Napa Chards have exceeded the idea of balance in favor of the overdone ("What was that vintage? 2006 Louisville Slugger? Yum!") With that being said, I'd rather have an overoaked Chard than one that tastes like lemonade laced with pineapple juice. I want WINE, not a melted popsicle.

The Circuitous Path from Network News to Fine Wine

My young journalistic roots had grown intertwined with a budding love of wine. It would be a long and fruitful evolution that would last a lifetime.

Wine Spectator Grand Tour

Wine Spectator Grand Tour! But First…

There are 244 wines, all rated 90 points and better, available for tasting. I've already burned a candle for my liver.
Parrish Family Art

Focus on Paso Robles – Parrish Family Vineyard

Surprisingly smooth and velvety for a Petite Sirah, it was deep, dark, and brooding, and didn’t do our teeth any favors.

Focus on Paso Robles – the House!

Our needs were few - we each wanted our own bedroom, we wanted a kitchen with a gas stove, a wonderful outdoor area, a quiet neighborhood, charm, and cheapness.
