Weekly Twitter Wine Mini-Reviews Round-up for 2010-07-17

Date: Sat, Jul 17, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

08 Jordan Chardonnay (Russian River Valley): A complicated dame w/ huge peaches; sweet as vanilla, but she has a big acid streak too. $29 B+ # 09 Gavalas Assyrtiko (Santorini): Distinctive blue bottle houses a not-so-distinctive but ultimately solid & mineral-driven white. $24 B- # 08 Gavalas Nyktiri (Santorini): Quite simply the tastiest, most balanced [...]

Terroir At The Edge Of The World (In The Vineyards of Santorini)

Date: Thu, Jul 15, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Peering out across the ancient caldera into the Agean from just about any spot on top of the beautiful Greek island of Santorini, you could be forgiven for mistaking the place for the edge of the world. And when I say “beautiful” I don’t mean beautiful in the “my backyard garden is beautiful” sense of [...]

1WineDude TV Episode 14: Greece is the Word

Date: Tue, Jul 13, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

In which Joe conducts a brief interview with Paris Sigalas, winemaker at Santorini’s Domaine Sigalas, and with the help of their eonologist attempts to translate the term “kick-ass” into Greek. For more Greece in images, check out the photos – non-lazy (i.e., for me, written) coverage is in the works: Part The First Part the [...]

Don’t Bogart That Sip: Should Sommeliers Taste Your Wine Purchase?

Date: Mon, Jul 12, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Last week, I was quoted in a very interesting article by Eric Asimov in the New York Times, based on a conversation that Eric and I had about restaurant sommeliers taking a small sip of their customers’ wines to ensure that they are sound prior to being served. Many of you out there (at least, [...]

08 Boutari Kallisti Reserve (Santorini): Smokey, hazlenut vanilla goodness with an acid blast to rock your next scallop dinner. €15 B+ # 06 Boutari Vinsanto (Santorini): A bit too cloying & unbalanced even for this sweet tooth, but those who dig caramel syrup will enjoy €17 B- # 09 Boutari Assyrtiko (Santorini): A fair amount [...]

Through The Electric Grapevine: The Les Claypool Interview

Date: Thu, Jul 8, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

I have, quite clearly, met my match when it comes to quirky wine interviews. His name is Les Claypool, and he’s probably most famous for fronting the talented and popular hard rock band Primus (who are on tour this Summer). As a (wannabe) bassist (going on 20 years) myself, I’ve often found Les’ music and [...]

Walla Walla Syrah QED? and “Days of WA Future Past”

Date: Tue, Jul 6, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Has the case for excellent Walla Walla Syrah been definitively demonstrated? Q.E.D.? I’m not going to go quite that far. But I will say that they might be pretty damn close, especially in those cases where the balance beats out the brawn in their Syrah bottlings. Two wine producers that I encountered recently in Walla [...]

On The Road: Santorini And The (Marketing) Trials Of The Greeks

Date: Mon, Jul 5, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

By the time you’re reading this, I’ll be on the Greek island of Santorini (press junket via Wines of Santorini and the Brand Action Team) to get a first-hand view of Greek wines, Greek wine history and winemaking, and seeing if I can vigorously outrun anyone offering me a glass of Retsina. The Greeks have, [...]
