  • Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For December 1, 2014

    So, like, what is this stuff, anyway? I taste a bunch-o-wine (technical term for more than most people). So each week, I share some of my wine reviews (mostly from samples) and tasting notes with you via twitter (limited to 140 characters). They are meant to be quirky, fun, and easily-digestible reviews of currently available wines.

  • What We Drank For Pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving

    Quick, get ready to freak out; I am about to talk about a wine that was not a sample, but for which I paid using my very own hard-earned cash! The atom might destabilize!! It’s true. About the wine being purchased, I mean, not about the atom (I think). The short version of the story is that at 1WD HQ, we tend to do a pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving meal, in which we indulge in Mrs.

  • Making The Yuletide Not-Very-Dry With Fix.com

    Ah, holiday wine pairing articles. I know, most of you hate ‘em. Trouble is, when it comes to wine drinkers, that vitriol puts us squarely in the minority. Many, many drinkers search for this kind of thing at pretty much every holiday, so it’s up to wine-writer-folk-types to try to make the dreaded duty of holiday wine matchups interesting (a daunting task, when so much of i ...

  • Burdened With Glorious Purpose (Livio Felluga Terre Alte 2011)

    It’s been a while since I bitched and moaned about tasting (okay, and drinking) wines long before “their time.” So I think we can both agree that I am due for a repeat. The trouble is, in the words of Loki, “I am burdened with glorious purpose!” when it comes to wine criticism. Generally, I’m supposed to taste vino, ascertain where it sits on the quality spectrum from worst to ...

  • Pucker Up (Talking Tannins For Publix Grape Magazine Winter 2014)

    Winter is nigh (sorry, peeps, face into it), bringing with it the 2014 Winter edition of Publix Grape Magazine. I’m still fortunate enough to be penning items for Grape, including this time out several wine pairing write-ups, including desserts and other seasonal recipes. So, if you’re hankering to know what supermarket wines might pair up with a Double Apple Crisp with Salte ...

  • Wine’s Quiet Hypocrisy

    For some reason (maybe I look trustworthy?), I’ve had a disproportionately large number of conversations with winemakers in which they divulge to me that they are upset about a myth/misunderstanding/half-truth/whatever being perpetuated by members of the wine media. This could be things such as - 1) inaccuracies regarding long-held notions about a growing region, or 2) the s ...

  • That Old, Old, Old, Old, Old Place In Lodi (A Bechthold Vineyard Cinsault Tasting)

    Remember when we talked about that old Cinsault vineyard in Lodi? I mean, that REALLY OLD Cinsault vineyard in Lodi? The tiny, flat, rectangular Bechthold vineyard – all 25 acres of it, or just about 0.0025% of Lodi’s overall plantings – is an organic, own-rooted, sandy-soil patch of Cinsault in the Mokelumne River area, near the town of Lodi itself.

  • If Your Palate Bleeds, These 2008 Italian Wines Can Kill It

    Lithe, balanced, light, and polite wines are de rigueur in the wine world at the moment. Now, I love those wines, but my tastes are quite catholic, and so I dig (well-made, authentic) wines of all stripes (okay, excepting possibly Retsina). And once in a while, after sampling lots of lithe, balanced, light, and polite wines, I want something that is brazenly, almost stupidly, ...
