What We Drank For Pre-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving

 Mark As Read    

Quick, get ready to freak out; I am about to talk about a wine that was not a sample, but for which I paid using my very own hard-earned cash! The atom might destabilize!! It’s true. About the wine being purchased, I mean, not about the atom (I think). The short version of the story […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tasting Guide and start getting ...

Making The Yuletide Not-Very-Dry With Fix.com

 Mark As Read    

Ah, holiday wine pairing articles. I know, most of you hate ‘em. Trouble is, when it comes to wine drinkers, that vitriol puts us squarely in the minority. Many, many drinkers search for this kind of thing at pretty much every holiday, so it’s up to wine-writer-folk-types to try to make the dreaded duty of […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tasting ...

Burdened With Glorious Purpose (Livio Felluga Terre Alte 2011)

 Mark As Read    

It’s been a while since I bitched and moaned about tasting (okay, and drinking) wines long before “their time.” So I think we can both agree that I am due for a repeat. The trouble is, in the words of Loki, “I am burdened with glorious purpose!” when it comes to wine criticism. Generally, I’m […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tasting Guide and star...

Pucker Up (Talking Tannins For Publix Grape Magazine Winter 2014)

 Mark As Read    

Winter is nigh (sorry, peeps, face into it), bringing with it the 2014 Winter edition of Publix Grape Magazine. I’m still fortunate enough to be penning items for Grape, including this time out several wine pairing write-ups, including desserts and other seasonal recipes. So, if you’re hankering to know what supermarket wines might pair up […...

Northbound Pachyderm (Tasting Claypool Cellars, Cobb, And LaRue 2012 Sonoma Coast Pinots)

 Mark As Read    

A note to musically-inclined wine people: if you help the nice folks at Claypool Cellars folks pick their consulting winemaker, eventually you’ll get to hang backstage at kick-ass Primus concerts. And while that might at first sound like a raging conflict of interest, I suppose it’s worth noting that a) that hasn’t stopped me from […] Grab T...

Wine’s Quiet Hypocrisy

 Mark As Read    

For some reason (maybe I look trustworthy?), I’ve had a disproportionately large number of conversations with winemakers in which they divulge to me that they are upset about a myth/misunderstanding/half-truth/whatever being perpetuated by members of the wine media. This could be things such as - 1) inaccuracies regarding long-held notions about a ...

That Old, Old, Old, Old, Old Place In Lodi (A Bechthold Vineyard Cinsault Tasting)

 Mark As Read    

Remember when we talked about that old Cinsault vineyard in Lodi? I mean, that REALLY OLD Cinsault vineyard in Lodi? The tiny, flat, rectangular Bechthold vineyard – all 25 acres of it, or just about 0.0025% of Lodi’s overall plantings – is an organic, own-rooted, sandy-soil patch of Cinsault in the Mokelumne River area, near […] Grab The 1W...

Well, the Global Interweb’s recent fixation with infographics seems to have abated by exactly zero percent. That’s the primary takeaway I’ve had, anyway, from my recent experience penning a couple of infographic-designed articles for Fix.com. Seems you people can’t get enough of that stuff!

If Your Palate Bleeds, These 2008 Italian Wines Can Kill It

 Mark As Read    

Lithe, balanced, light, and polite wines are de rigueur in the wine world at the moment. Now, I love those wines, but my tastes are quite catholic, and so I dig (well-made, authentic) wines of all stripes (okay, excepting possibly Retsina).

October is over? Already? WTF?!??? And so it’s time for another round up of the monthly Wine.Answers.com articles for your perusal. If you’re looking for Halloween wine recommendations, I resisted revisiting that same old ground this year (so for that, you’ll just have to check out last year’s version, which still holds up just fine).

Think Wine Criticism Is B.S.? Then You Need To Reject All Forms Of Criticism

 Mark As Read    

Every once in a while, when I tell people what I do for a living, I get a sort of snickering question along the lines of “does it bother you that part of what you do is total bullsh*t?” These folks are usually referring to the studies, quoted by lazy media outlets ad nauseum, that […] Grab The 1WineDude.com Tasting Guide and start getting mo...
