Date: Sat, Jun 19, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

07 Paraiso "West Terrace" Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands): Think red berry fireworks, only in your mouth. Showing beautifully. $40 A- # 07 Paraiso Chardonnay (Santa Lucia Highlands): Lemon & a sweet touch of vanilla tat are balanced enough to belie 14.5% booze factor. $18 B+ # Graham's 20 Year Old Tawny Port (Porto): Enough [...]

It’s Time For the PLCB to Die (or “There is NO Cabernet Franc”)

Date: Thu, Jun 17, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

It’s been a while since I railed against the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board. Not that they haven’t deserved a good railing in the interim, I’ve just been busy with other topics, and the PLCB has been busy raiding PA bars at great taxpayer expense and with no justifiable reason, so they’ve been dealing with plenty of [...]

Date: Tue, Jun 15, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

The 2010 Americas Wine Bloggers Conference is nigh upon us (June 25-27 in Walla Walla, WA), and I’m getting excited to attend (despite the major pain in the ass it is going to be for me to even get to Walla Walla from Philly in the first place). There’s a great deal to be excited about [...]

09 Trapiche Torrontes (Mendoza): Much to like for tropical fruit lovers; Torrontes fans might find much to gripe about (except price). $7 C+ # 08 Ruffino Chianti (Chianti): Only about 75% Sangiovese, but it’s a total chewy cherry, crowd-pleasing steal of a deal nonetheless. $9 B- # 07 Novelli “Rosso Cube” (Umbria): Probably the earthiest, spiciest, darkest [...]

Date Night Winners (and Losers)

Date: Thu, Jun 10, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Last week, Mrs. Dudette and I had the (relatively rare) treat of a double-date night with our groovy neighbors.  Since this excursion into the (now strangely fascinating) world of conversation that doesn’t involve Elmo took place at a fabulous BYOB joint in (a recently revitalized and restaurant-friendly) downtown Phoenixville, PA – Majolica – you might [...]

Date: Wed, Jun 9, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

In the latest 1WineDude video installment, I test out a sample of wine racks from GrottoCellars.com, act like an immature goofball, impose my will onto an unsuspecting Roomba robot vacuum cleaner at high video speeds, and tweak out my back. Just another day at the office! Cheers!

07 Ghost Pines Cabernet Sauvignon (Sonoma/Napa Counties): Mr. toasty oak told Ms. Blackberry that he'd "be gentle." But he lied. $23 B- # 07 Ghost Pines Merlot (Sonoma/Napa Counties): Frighteningly supple crowd-pleaser.

PA Wineries Get Toasted for Guinness World Record Event

Date: Thu, Jun 3, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

It’s not every day that I get to shout out to my home state for something positive in the world of wine, outside of some of the wine itself, that is – usually it’s to rail against the PLCB monopoly. In this case, the shout out is for an event...
