Personally, I have a hard time with Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec because they are real bruisers. Unless, of course, there's a candlelit, air-conditioned romantic dinner involved...
I want to go someplace in 2018. By someplace, I mean not Vegas. Not even (gasp!) California, my go-to wine-guzzling destination.
I, for one, went from "annoyed" to pissed. I don't know who did the editing/abridging, but I'd bet my firstborn that it wasn't Rex Pickett. Sorry, Zach! That was figurative.
I've not started yet, but a quick flip through the book doesn't show an immediately perceptible difference from the original so far. So that means that I have to sit down and read the whole thing again. Yay!
My first “good” Pinot – which occurred before the movie Sideways, by the way - was an epiphany. The color that gleamed with translucent ruby, purple, and flashes of garnet, the nose that danced with roses, cranberries, strawberries, smoke, and cherries, and the experience of pure silk on the palate and a luscious, long, exquisite finish, pretty much ruined me for any other wine. While I can't remember the wine maker, I do remember the experience.
If this book is ever made into a movie, Chile’s tourism department will be swamped with Americans who will want to go on the new Chilean wine trail.
If you love a well-crafted, beautifully-plotted book, you will enjoy Vertical. As with all of Rex’s books, you'll have to bring your brain to the table. And a dictionary wouldn't hurt, either.
Yeah, yeah. I know I'm late to the party in getting on the Sideways bandwagon, but I don't care.
"Reading" the books by audio has been very satisfying and listening to Sideways is not my first rodeo.
The first problem that I had to address was my singular, well-known ability to get lost in a small room. I call it being directionally challenged. The Wineaux Guy™ calls it hopeless.
