    • Weekly Interview: Dan Fishman

      Zweigelt that I got from Mokelumne Glen Vineyard—100% whole cluster and 11.7% alcohol, I think it shows a really different side of California. What’s the oldest bottle in your cellar? The most expensive? My brother has been in town and I think we have pretty much cleaned out my older wines, so I think the oldest right now is a 2000 Dunn Howell Mountain.

    • Weekly Interview: Nicolas Cantacuzene

      for Emeritus Vineyards? Fast and furious. The challenge was to bring in the fruit as fast as possible. With the drought, the fruit did not have the reserve to stay on the vine as long.

  • Weekly Interview: Remi Cohen

    …. I think that perhaps 2009, which was also a drought year (though the drought then was less severe), had more moderate weather during August and September and may be the most similar in recent memory. Also similar are the grapes from 2007 that were picked before the rain on October 13th. What’s your favorite wine region in the world – other than…
