    … 2004 Château Lascombes Pack me up and take me somewhere warm! In the meantime, keeping warm with this Lascombes. Smells just like a Bordeaux - cassis, blackberries, raspberries, fresh leather, violets, spicebox, mushrooms and earth.

  • Pinot Noir, Fort Berens, Lillooet, BC VQA, 2012, 13.5% abv, C$26

    How is this possible? A Canadian winery poised at 50.5 degrees north latitude – just outside the usually accepted outermost limits of vinifera grape growing. Yet, there Fort Berens lies, thumbing its nose at the non-believers, and producing quality Pinot Noir of all things. Yes, this finicky grape seems quite at home here in Lillooet which lies in the rain shadow of the Coas ...

    … 23 Jan 2015 Comments Off Powerful red wines from a tiny town: Brunello di Montalcino Since the hilltop town of Montalcino is not easy to get to, it’s a good thing that the producers of Brunello di Montalcino bring their wines to the US for tastings.

  • My Cave Red!

    … Okay this is not a cheapie, but it is on sale! And comes in a screw cap. I’ve been drinking Cave’s Gamay ever since the winery opened and have to say it’s been an wonderful ride. Early vintages had the fruitiness/tartness of Beaujolais, and I recall a chefs’ lunch where it was pronounced ‘best partner for alfresco meals’. More recent vintages…
