Wines of San Juan, Argentina

    Wines of where? Puerto Rico? Nope, these wines are from the up-and-coming province of San Juan, Argentina, and they offer a pleasant reminder of the value that lesser-known wine-producing regions around the world can deliver. They also remind us that purity can equal quality in wines. Bonarda, Tannat, Syrah, Malbec and Torrontes are some of the main varietals coming out of this ...

    Three-legged dogs, Jack Dempsey and Rye Whiskey

    Imagine music so good, so soulful, so gypsy, so nasty, so pure, that it gets into the very marrow of your bones, rips your heart out and washes it gently in the lazy waters of the Delta then puts it back in your chest, only to leave you wanting more. Imagine a transcendent voice, both gravely and smooth at the same time, weaving tales of three-legged dogs, Jack Dempsey and Rye w ...

    Veuve Cliquot Mail Truck pops corks in Houston

    It appears on nearly every wine list in every major city’s restaurants across the nation; it pops up at nearly every “middle-to-high class” social event; its large yellow label is overtly displayed in nearly every retail outlet for wine, from independent liquor stores to huge grocery chains across the nation; it is the go-to “bubbles” for those who don’t know bubbles…and for those who do.

    A Writer’s Response to Intimidation

    In political writing, investigative journalism and satire, the subject of the story is often cast in a light he or she does not like. If the piece is outrageously untrue, as often happens in satire, a good-natured subject, while irked, will respond with humor. It takes the heat off, diffuses whatever power the writing may have and puts the subject in a positive light, showi ...

    Just the Facts (and a Mea Culpa)

    My earlier post has generated some negative comments, many of them well-deserved. As is typical with this kind of dust-up, there are people who agree but don’t want to roll around in the mud. Although not as many as usual. All of this points to one thing; I was wrong. When Amy compiled these numbers we felt that if we just published the charts as-is they would be too dry and would be ignored.

    August 18, 2014 Brancott Estate 2013 “Flight Song” Pinot Grigio Brancott Estate 2013 “Flight Song” Pinot Grigio from Marlborough, New Zealand is a bit of a surprise.

    Be a Swinger, or Divorce Your Wine Guy!

    People love to ask about our favorite local wine merchant. Truth be told, we do not have many. In fact most of our wine is shipped to us. So it is pretty safe to say our favorite wine usually comes via FedEx. When I wrote a version this post back in 2010, we did not have a favorite wine guy. Or girl, in Houston. Then our good friend Iris Allen invited us to a hidden gem in Rice University Village.

    The Trouble with Wine “Super” Stores

    You are a sophisticated wine consumer. You are looking for wine from a particular region. If it’s Old World, then that’s pretty easy. Need a French Pinot Noir? Head to any wine shop’s Burgundy section. Cabernet or Merlot? There’s the Bordeaux section over there. Sparkling? Look for the bottles with a shiny foil-covered round cork — those you can spot from over the tops of the aisles.

    WBC 2014 and the Wine Blog Awards – Part 1

    Before we begin… Later in this post I mention that some of my fellow bloggers might be too genteel to express themselves the way that I tend to do. If I had to pick one person that I know to apply that word to, it would be my fellow Texas import, Melanie Ofenloch, otherwise known as DallasWineChick. As far as I know, I’ve never done this before, but I would like to dedicate this post to her.
