  • 2010 William Murdoch Syrah

    This New Zeeland Syrah was opened to go along some grilled sausages. A young, sligthly herbal and spicy nose with notes of blueberries, veal stock and new leather. A medium depth. With air some flowery scents appear. Very good ...

  • Thirteenth Annual Pinot Noir Shootout

    To all of my wine pals, I don’t know anyone who works more tirelessly for Pinot Noir than Barbara Drady does. Her Affairs of the Vine annual shootouts are worth your time and energy. I believe in the process of a collective palate, just as I do for individual ones. Barbara’s panels are always worth their weight in gold, as a who’s who.

  • January Pic of the Vine

    In the offseason, resident photographer Richard Duval selects certain images and moves into fine art mode. Using various software tools (but not Photoshop), he experiments with tone, light, symmetry, and shadow to create a new image that is then printed on metallic-coated paper and fused to a sheet of aluminum for display.

  • NV Fernando di Castilla, Don Fernando Oloroso, Jerez, Spain

    NV Fernando di Castilla, Don Fernando Oloroso, Jerez, Spain (£15.00, 50cl bottle, Marks & Spencer). There is something unutterably decadent about pouring a generous glass of lightly chilled Oloroso and settling down to watch a gripping thriller on TV after a slap-up dinner. Make sure you have some bitter, upmarket chocolate to hand, too, because this wine needs a foil to ...

  • “The Flor is Everywhere” – Equipo Navazos Masterclass with Jesús Barquín

    Since trying the wines of Equipo Navazos in late 2013, in particular a taste of the Nº 37 and Nº 31 Amontillados, I have been constantly seeking the chance to try more of their range, and even just more sherry in general. An opportunity arose late last year to attend a masterclass with the Australian importer Bibendum and the co-founder of Equipo Navazos, Jesús Barquín, and I t ...

  • Allegrini Valpolicella: A Downright Friendly Italian Red Wine

    Since I’ve been on a theme of anthropomorphizing wines, I can’t help but continue when thinking about the 2013 Allegrini Valpolicella. Hailing from the Veneto in Northern Italy, Allegrini’s estate vineyards surround the pictured Villa della Torre. Nice digs, eh? So what do I mean when I call this wine “friendly”? Many things. First and foremost: it’s easy to drink.

  • LangeTwins: Farmers, Vintners, and Ambassadors of Lodi, California

    I just had the pleasure of dining with Randy and Charlene Lange, two of the owners of LangeTwins. Over the course of an evening, I learned quite a lot about their story as well as the LangeTwins wines. The Lange family has been farming in Lodi, California for five generations. For a large part of that time, they were mainly grape growers.
