  • Life is a Cabernet

    … trumping the latter as this is much cooler and linear, with apples in stereo acidity, cogitated in a self-professed “alternative California style.” Definition: zero malolactic fermentation.

  • Who’s On Thirst?

    … Who’s On Thirst? In honor of the San Francisco Giants’ World Series victory, today’s blog pays homage to baseball’s greatest dialogue. Good help can be hard to find in a wine store. I once told an employee to be careful with a bottle of 1927 Fonseca Vintage Port and he said, “Don’t worry boss, I’ll treat it like it’s brand new!” Perhaps…
