Date: Sat, Sep 11, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

But, alas, it’s Fools’ Gold. $18 C+ # NV Taittinger Brut La Francaise (Champagne): Nothing wrong w/ the green apple & cream on this baby, but I like ‘em a little toastier. $39 B+ # 07 Lucente (Toscana): A [...]

Two Badge-Worthy (And Cheap!) Whites

Date: Fri, Sep 10, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Ok, so one of them isn’t that cheap… and come to think of it, the better term is inexpensive because neither of them are cheaply made… whatever, you’ll get what I mean…! Anyway, we’ve got two badges to hand out this week, both to whites from the sample pool that really impressed me.  Here they [...]

Are Wine Clubs A Good Buy? (1WD on Mint.com)

Date: Thu, Sep 9, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

I was recently interviewed for an article that appeared on financial management website Mint.com’s Frugal Foodie blog, titled Will Joining a Wine Club Make or Break Your Budget. The topic (obviously) was the potential financial implications of joining a wine club, and how to find the right club without getting fleeced. This was strange one [...]

I Drink The Blood of Summer and Toast To Its Death! (Rosé Round-Up)

Date: Mon, Sep 6, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

This Summer has been a season of meteorological discontent in the greater Delaware Valley. The (multiple) successive (and repressive) heatwaves might actually make the local wines interesting to taste once they’re finally bottled, but it hasn’t exactly jived with the tastes of the rest of us. In other words, it’s been too f-ing hot and [...]

Planet of the Grapes, and “Going Publix” in Your Pocket

Date: Thu, Sep 2, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

In my ongoing effort to, uhm, branch out in the wine world (read: get paid), I’ve got myself involved in a couple more ‘extra-blogger’ activities that I thought I’d share.  They are geared more towards beginner (I know, I hate that term too, but I can’t manage a better one) wine enthusiasts and so I [...]

China: The Next Big Thing In Wine and Continued Totalitarian Oppression

Date: Wed, Sep 1, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Asia, as most of you are already aware, is THE NEXT BIG THING in wine consumption.  China, of course, is the current big thing in Asia, which means that the Chinese market is THE NEXT BIG THING in wine consumption.  So big, it must be stated IN ALL CAPS! This is not news – it’s [...]

Biodynamic Wine, Mystified (Is BioDynamics A Bunch of Fertilizer?)

Date: Thu, Aug 26, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

I have uncovered potentially serious evidence that could possibly refute the recent scientific evidence suggesting that drinking wine makes you smarter. Specifically, I offer my recent experience reading Nicholas Joly’s essay-like treatise on the hot-potato topic of Biodynamic viticulture, Biodynamic Wine, Demystified. If this is the demystified version, I’d hate to see it mystified. I [...]

The Otter Badgers of Wine Reviews: Joining the Wine Rating Revolution

Date: Wed, Aug 25, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

Sorry – couldn’t resist.  I mean, just look at those cute, furry-cuddly, viciously-fanged mammals over there! I mean “other badges” of wine reviews, of course – in my case, I’m the late-comer to the wine badge review par-tay masterminded by Vintank; that is, late-comer in terms of getting my badges ready for prime-time (I was [...]

“Deep” Freeze = “Deep” Discounts? Thoughts on N. Cal’s Strange Summer Days

Date: Mon, Aug 23, 2010 Wine Tasting Winery Blogs Wine Business

It’s not really a deep freeze, of course – it’s simply been a wet and (very) mild Summer in Northern California.  Just about anything with leaves that produces fruit was weeks behind schedule in terms of ripening. If you scan the ‘global interwebs’ on the topic, it might strike you that the sky is about [...]

06 d’Arenberg “The Sticks & Stones” (McLaren Vale): The violet nose will never hurt you.
