My Damascus Road Moment(s) – Wine(s) that I Love

“Hearty Burgundy” was the red wine that everybody drank. Which, by the way, didn't have a drop of Burgundy. Ew.

Koehler Winery – History and Tasting

Winemaker Colin Murphy and Vineyard Manager Felipe Hernandez collaborate regularly to ensure the quality of the fruit improves from year to year.

Epoch Estate Wines: A Winemakers Vision of the Future

I’ve found that, where concrete highlights minerality in the wines, amphora aging imparts a grounding, earthy effect.

Trader Joe’s vs “Real Wine” Tho’down. And the Winner is…

We’d have a blind taste-off with wines that we brought from our own cellars (wine coolers, actually. This is Vegas. There are no cellars.)

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.

Cheffy Stuff and Music on YouTube

I recommend a bowl of popcorn, a nice Napa Chardonnay or a sparkling wine (if you must), and turning on YouTube and just kicking back to enjoy. By the way, there's quite a bit of food porn involved.

Why Wine?

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.

A Tale of Three Rosés

It's spring, and as we cruise into summer, I'm already starting to taste my favorite summer wines. That would be, of course, Rosés!

2013 Olema Chardonnay – Sonoma County

Kudos to the winemaker for such a deft touch and avoiding the buttery overoaked character so often seen in Chardonnays developed in new oak.

Big Horn Olive Oil Company – EVOO & Budget Clash

The flavors are amazing; they have small tasting cups that you can use to sample. That's how I ended up spending so much money. It's a plot.
