Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau 2008

Date: Thu, Nov 20, 2008 Wine Tasting

Beaujolais Nouveau est Arrive! For those who don’t speak French, what that means is the first wine of the 2008 vintage — made from grapes picked only weeks ago — has been bottled and is available for sale right now. Many snobs scoff at Nouveau, belittling its existence and poo-pooing it as “simple plonk”. I’m not [...]

Wines for Thanksgiving

Date: Thu, Nov 20, 2008 Wine Tasting

A week from now, the USA will be celebrating the annual “bird day” better known as Thanksgiving, enjoying a feast of myriad dishes surrounding a roasted turkey. As a result, the cork dork within you is running mad with imagination — what wine, or wines, will match with the big bird AND the assorted accompaniments? Look [...]

Rocca delle Macie Morellino “Campomaccione”

Date: Tue, Nov 11, 2008 Wine Tasting

Rocca delle Macie Morellino di Scansano “Campomaccione” 2005 Do not be intimidated by the long, somewhat threatening words on the label of this wine. It’s nothing to be afraid of — in fact, it’s something with which you’re likely very familiar. Morellino di Scansano seems difficult to pronounce on first glance. It’s not — it sounds [...]

White Wine Review: Clean Slate Riesling

Date: Thu, Nov 6, 2008 Wine Tasting

Too often people walk right by that section of the wine shop where all the tall and skinny green bottles are shelved — also known as “Germany” and/or “Alsace”. Those confusing-looking labels with long, unpronounceable names like “Trockenberenauslese” and “Gewurztraminer” are too intimidating for the average wine buyer. And if that description fits you, don’t [...]

Cabernet Sauvignon Review: Rayun

Date: Wed, Oct 29, 2008 Wine Tasting

In these difficult economic times, we wine geeks with short pockets must do a better job of hunting down the great values. Traditionally, I have looked to South America for dirt cheap deals on deliciously drinkable wines. At one time, Chile was a great place to find fantastic values. Then the secret got out, and Chilean [...]

Wine Review: Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc

Date: Tue, Oct 21, 2008 Wine Tasting

What’s a “pomelo”, and how do you make wine from it? Truth is, though this wine is called “Pomelo”, it’s not made from the pomelo fruit — instead, it’s made from Sauvignon Blanc grown in Lake County, California. From the back label: Pomelo – Giant citrus fruit native to Malaysia and thought to be ancestor to the grapefruit. Our [...]

Red Wine Review: Pannotia Garnacha

Date: Fri, Oct 17, 2008 Wine Tasting

Imported wines can be tough to purchase, because there are so many wines brought in from so many areas of the world, with labels that you likely have never heard of, nor seen, before — particularly in the under-$15 range. Additionally, there are a ton of wines brought in for no other reason than the [...]

Rose Wine Review: Artazuri

Date: Thu, Oct 9, 2008 Wine Tasting

It’s not too late to drink rose wine — in fact many of this year’s releases are still fresh and vibrant. Which is a good thing, since pink wines tend to be enjoyable on their own and match with a wide variety of foods. This particular rose comes from an importer I respect highly — I [...]
