    • White Stones and White Bones: terroir-based Chardonnays from Catena

      It was very interesting to try these two high-end terroir-based Chardonnays from Catena, and then the next day to have a look at the soils that produced them. They both come from the same block in the Adrianna Vineyard, high up in the Uco Valley at 1450 m altitude. But even within the same block, there’s quite a variation in soils. Soil pit 1, above, shows one of the soil types.

  • Recipe: Argentinean Sorrentinos Paired with Cabernet Sauvignon

    … of that I should. Its origins are from Austria where it is the signature grape. Pick up a bottle of Hermann Moser 2013 Per Due Gruner Veltliner.

Try the Recuerdo Torrontes. I reviewed the 2011 vintage here. Not sure if you'll be able to find the 2011, but the 2012 I am sure is just as good. It retails for $15.…

It is hard to complain about coverage in a book that spans so much territory, but I wish there had been room for more detail about Chile and South Africa here. I’ve had some stunning wines from both places, especially the South…

This Clos La Coutale is no exception. Red licorice, olives, and cardamom on the nose. With aeration, cedar notes gain prominence. The medium-bodied palate shows…

  • Last Week in Wine -- New series!

    I often tweet out what wine I’m drinking during the week and highlight various wines from my region as well as from regions around the world, but I don't always have room in a tweet to elaborate on each wine. So I’ve decided to collect them in occasional posts called Last Week in Wine. Catchy title right? I got the idea from Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.
