Wine Gadget: Waring Chiller

Date: Tue, Aug 26, 2008 Wine Tasting

Since most of my friends and family are aware of my wine geekiness, I tend to receive wine accessories as birthday and holiday gifts. So it was no surprise that I eventually unwrapped a Waring Wine Chiller. It was in fact one of those items I’d never have bought for myself — mainly because I live [...]

Sauvignon Blanc Review: Maddalena

Date: Mon, Aug 25, 2008 Wine Tasting

San Antonio Winery Maddalena Sauvignon Blanc 2006 When I first saw this wine I thought, “wow, a wine from Texas!”. After all, San Antonio IS in Texas, isn’t it? Yeah … um … sometimes I’m not so smart. With help from my reading glasses, a closer look at the label revealed that indeed the wine was from San [...]

Rose Wine Review: Toad Hollow

Date: Fri, Aug 22, 2008 Wine Tasting

Toad Hollow Dry Rose 2007 Summertime is the best time for rose wine, in my humble opinion. However, it can be difficult to find a good dry rose unless you do some research. Although many US wine drinkers have become more sophisticated, and now eschew the sugary white zins that proliferated the market for so many [...]

Nick Faldo Launches Wines

Date: Wed, Aug 20, 2008 Wine Tasting

As if the world didn’t have enough celebrity “winemakers” … The latest well-known name to dabble into wine production is golfing great Nick Faldo. Faldo has launched a new line of “easy drinking” wines, just in time for the Rhyder’s Cup golf tournament between the US and Europe (September 19-21). We can be certain that the [...]

Red Wine Review: Ch. Vignot Bordeaux

Date: Fri, Aug 15, 2008 Wine Tasting

Chateau Vignot Saint-Émilion Grand Cru Bordeaux 2004 One of my great weaknesses when it comes to wine is Bordeaux (when was the last time you heard a wine geek like me admit he didn’t know something about wine?). There seem to be so many producers of Bordeaux, with prices starting around $6.99 and going well past [...]

Wine Term: Lees

Date: Thu, Jul 17, 2008 Wine Tasting

No, these aren’t what you might wear for pants, and you will be hard-pressed (pardon the pun) to find them in white (though blue is not unusual). The lees (pronounced like the jeans) are the dead yeast cells, grape seeds, pulp, stems, skins, and tartrates that separate from the juice during wine making and aging. When [...]

Sauvignon Blanc Review: Shepherds Ridge

Date: Tue, Jun 3, 2008 Wine Tasting

Shepherds Ridge Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough 2006 I picked this up because it was cheap and brought in by Stevenot, an importer who I’ve trusted in the past. Many years ago, Stevenot introduced the USA to McGuigan Brothers wines from Australia. Much has happened since then, with McGuigan going from little-known niche brand to mass-market, Stevenot filing [...]

Pinot Noir Review: Fleur 2006

Date: Wed, May 14, 2008 Wine Tasting

Fleur Pinot Noir 2006 - Carneros Ever since “Sideways” came out, everyone and their brother became a Pinot Noir snob, and the wine suppliers reacted by flooding the market with all kinds of swill labeled with that classic French varietal. Four years after the movie, wine shops can’t keep enough Pinot Noir stocked on the shelves [...]
