Wine Reviews. Seriously.

Scott Harvey Vertical Tasting

The Monday night Somm Study Group did a Vertical tasting on 2007, 2008 & 2009 Scott Harvey Old Vine Zinfandel Reserve

An Impromptu Rosé Wine Tasting

Rosé has become so common during the warm weather we sometimes lose track of what we have had, what we have liked or disliked.

Today’s Tasting Note – Torrontés

I know this is hard to believe, but I reviewed another white wine under screwcap. No, I haven't lost my mind. Arguable, arguable. I got it.

J. Lohr Wine Dinner – Marché Bacchus

When I saw the flyer for a J. Lohr wine dinner at Marché Bacchus for just a little over $100, I jumped at the opportunity. Budget be damned.

Pinot Noir, Typicity, and Dog Shows. A Rant.

Focus on Paso Robles – Visiting Old Friends…

It was too late to pick up my allocation because there was no more room in the (full-sized!) SUV.

I've had frugally-priced Pinots that tasted like dirt (not "earth," but actual dirt), some that tasted like they had a good dollop of cheap Syrah added.

Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Frugal – “Target”ing Malbec

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