• Wine Reviews: Weekly Mini Round-Up For August 25, 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.

  • A Quiet Resistance (Eyrie Vineyards Original Vines Pinot Noir, In Retrospect)

    Generally speaking, when you’re attending a Pinot Noir masterclass-style tasting hosted by one of a wine region’s most historically significant properties, it’s not considered good form to giggle like an eight year-old girl. Which, of course, didn’t stop me from doing it. The trouble was, I just found the irony so damned funny, it was like being back in my Oblate grade school ch ...

  • Cuckoo And Cocka-doodle-doo (Coquerel And Toquade Recent Sauvignon Blanc Releases)

    At this point, I think that we’ve established that Bordeaux native Christine Barbe is at least a little bit crazy. Very talented, but a little crazy. Crazy enough to justify the namesake of her personal brand, Toquade, anyway. She has, after all, devoted a significant portion of her current winemaking career to – egads! – Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, a region/variety combo that ...

  • Well, That Was Easy. Not. (“The Once And Future Of Crete” In August 2014 SOMM Journal)

    My feature on the wines of the Greek isle of Crete is now available in the August 2014 issue of SOMM Journal. That twenty-two word sentence belies what has to be one of the longest paths to seeing something published that I’ve ever had to walk. Not that the folks at SOMM Journal / Tasting Panel were difficult to deal with; far from it (they have been a pleasure to work with, actually).

  • The Wine Blogging Community Is A Joke (But It Doesn’t Have To Be That Way)

    During the recent Wine Bloggers Conference in Santa Barbara, I performed one of the more self-serving actions of my entire life (and that’s saying something, right there). During Corbett Barr’s keynote speech, I clapped deliberately and loudly when Barr told the conference-goers that the wine blogging community needs to do more to work together and foster community.

  • Same Old Song (Ridge Lytton Springs Recent Releases)

    “We sing the same old song Just like a vintage car, You can look, but you won’t ever drive it. We drink the same old wine From a brand new jar, We get hung-over, but we always survive it.” - “New Song” by The Who Some tasks are just… unenviable. Take, for example, trying to say something new about iconic California producer Ridge that’s not already been said.

  • Reviews (And Wine Labels) ‘R’ Us (Answers.com Wine Article Roundup, July 2014)

    We wind down yet another summer month (a scorcher for me, since we spent a good portion of it without a working central AC system at 1WD HQ), and so we have another round of Wine.Answers.com article highlights for your reading pleasure. I was in full-on review mode this month, in an attempt to make a dent in the pile of samples that were not actually wines (this isn’t as insane ...

  • Come Original (On Negative Reviews, #WBC14, Boring Wine Writing, & Non-Boring Wines)

    “A warning to the crews out there who think they’re hot, if you’re not original rockers you will get shot down by the kids neglectin’ your art, the stuff you did, eventually it get so bad puts you to bed ’cause when the lightning flashes sweet electricity, all the world then stands revealed with the clarity of raw voltage, briefly we see and the hope is you’ll be able to tell just what dope is…” .

  • 1WineDude.com TV Episode 61: “How The Pros Taste” From #WBC14

    Some of you asked for it, so here it is: our panel on how the pros taste wine from the 2014 Wine Bloggers Conference in Santa Barbara, CA. Or most of our panel, anyway; as much of it as could be recorded before my video camera lost its juice. More thoughts on the wines that we tasted during that panel, as well as on WBC14 itself, later this week.
