This week’s selection may be a bit foreign to many of you, but wine exploration and searching out new and interesting regions, grapes and winemaking techniques is what this is all about. Hence, I’m introducing you to the 2008 Mastroberardino Taurasi Radici Riserva Antonio. A vintage dedicated to and named for Antonio Mastroberardino, who passed away in early 2014 at the age of 86.

Antonio Mastroberardino's legacy has left an undeniable mark on Italian winemaking, as well as the world's perception of the wines that hail from southern Italy. This gem is produced from Campania’s native Aglianico g...

Usseglio, though an Italian name, quickly conjures up thoughts of France’s Rhone valley for those in the wine world. In 1931 Francis Usseglio left Italy for work in Chateauneuf du Pape and shortly after WWII became a tenant farmer producing his own wine.  Francis had two sons Pierre and Raymond. Pierre took over managing the family vineyard, and after buying more plots founded Domaine Pierre Usseglio which eventually became known for the special cuvees Mon Aieul and Reserve des Deux Freres. Raymond purchased his first vineyard in 1962 and in 1964 established Domaine Raymond Usseglio. Currently...

I was very excited to try the new release from Tyler Winery – the 2013 Tyler Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County that was given a 92 point rating from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate. Friday nights in my house usually consist of friends, steak and wine.  What better way to welcome the weekend than with a hearty cut of sirloin accompanied by a full bodied Pinot Noir.

Tyler Winery is one of my favorites from California. Their focus is on producing delicate, balanced wines that drinkers will love, which is precisely why I continue to drink their Pinot Noir. Each sip is a wonderful experience that transp...

Argiano may be one of the most picturesque estates in Montalcino beginning with a lane lined with beautiful cypress trees. The 17th century villa on the property is now available to guests, allowing Brunello enthusiasts the opportunity for an unforgettable Tuscan experience. Daily wine and olive oil tastings are offered - and who would turn either down? - and the property also features gorgeous, lush gardens and a petite, enchanting chapel. The staff there promises memories to last a lifetime...

If traveling to Tuscany is not an immediate possibility, a bottle of their 2010 Brunello di Montalci...

Ramey WineThe 2012 vintage in Napa is going down with some of the other great age worthy vintages, such as 2001 and 2007, but can be enjoyed right away as well. So I was happy to have the opportunity to try this classic vintage with the 2012 Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, which coincidentally can trace its beginnings back to Petrus, another age worthy wine. 

Ramey was founded in 1996 by David Ramey and his wife Carla. However, before there was Ramey Cellars, David worked for a short while for the Moueix family at the legendary Chateau Petrus, where he brought what he learned there in winemaki...

“I have always found Branaire Ducru to be curiously underrated, undervalued, and somewhat forgotten whenever Bordeaux enthusiasts discuss their favorite wines.” 

“2000 was the first vintage to demonstrate that numerous high quality Bordeaux wines can be made in all price categories.”

In short, these two quotes by Robert Parker are the reason we recently purchased 2000 Branaire Ducru.  

Chateau Branaire Ducru is located in the southeastern portion of St. Julien, across from Chateau Beychevelle which it once was part of up until 1680. The winery’s vineyards located throughout the commune contain va...

“This iconic winery continues to offer wines with personalities and styles that set them apart (especially the estate wines) from just about anything else readers will taste from California.”– Robert Parker, Wine Advocate

Mt Eden is a historic boutique winery located in the Santa Cruz Mountain appellation about 15-20 miles from the Pacific Ocean.  It was founded in 1945 by Michael Ray, and he focused primarily on small plots of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Cabernet. Like Robert Parker mentioned in the quote above, these wines are very different from the usual California wines, and they definitely...

The groundwork that Robert Mondavi laid for the American wine industry is forever etched in the history of great winemaking. His accomplishment in bringing the American winemaking industry to the forefront is legendary, and we have him to thank for the successes that California winemaking has today.

The Robert Mondavi Winery was established in 1966 by Robert. It was the first major winery built in Napa Valley and for decades, it was California’s most famous winery.

Being in the wine industry for as long as I have has given me wonderful opportunities to taste a wide range of wines as you can imag...

The commune of Gevrey Chambertin possesses nine Grand Cru vineyards, more than any other in the Cote de Nuits. In the heart of them you will find Chambertin along with Clos de Beze, the two benchmarks of the commune considered by Clive Coates, MW to produce “immaculate and full, firm and rich, concentrated and masculine” wines. Many consider Chambertin to be the King of Burgundy, Musigny the Queen, and along with a handful of Grand Crus from Vosne Romanee, they comprise an elite core of arguably the First Growths of Red Burgundy. 

Nicolas Potel began his winemaking career at Domaine de la Pouss...

Whispering Angel Rose“In the Esclans Valley angels whisper. If you drink this wine, you might hear them. If by chance you visit us, you might see them.” - Sacha Alexis Lichine, Winemaker 

June 21st has come and gone which means summer is upon us. I think most of us can agree summer was here even before that date. School is out, the heat seems like it is turned up this year which just makes me yearn for the sun, sand and of course a drink in my hand.  

This is the season of Rosé and what better bottle to kick off the summer than the 2014 Chateau D’Esclans Whispering Angel Rosé.  Year after year Chateau D’Esclans prod...
