Medium ruby, cloudy with no edge. Beautiful grimy, sweaty forest floor and tarry splendor explodes out of the glass, carrying with it dripping savory fruit, over-ripe cantaloupe, candy cane and the sweet melancholy of rhubarb pie. 155 more words


Eat More Lamb!

As you might have seen, we made lamb on Sunday. Not for any religious benediction, but just because its so damn tasty if made well (in our case it was medium rare). 1,142 more words


MMM...what a surprise

Have you ever enjoyed a Malbec, Merlot or Mourvèdre? Not unlikely. But have you ever had a blend containing all three of them? Chances are you never have, and the same was true for me until I tried M.M.M. 264 more words

Tasting Notes

Saint Siffrein Chateauneuf-du-Pape

I’m a big fan of wines from the Rhône, and the 2007 Domaine de Saint Siffrein Chateauneuf-du-Pape was no exception when I opened it in the autumn of 2016. 146 more words


Mourvedre Suspended

Medium ruby and slightly staining.  Greasy, grimy, fat tire and dirt road rise up headily in the nose, blasting phenomenal honeysuckle and dusty rose potpourri floral. 202 more words


Mourvedre’s Dark and Terroir-torial Personality

I took a run at the Rhone Rangers’ Tasting  a couple weekends ago (Sunday, April 6). It has moved from Fort Mason in San Francisco to Craneway Pavillon in Richmond. 1,541 more words
