Aussie Verdelho!
When I think of Margaret River, a picturesque wine region in Western Australia, two white wines come to mind: Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon ("SBS") blends. But bumping into a grape I most associate with Portugal, Verdelho, in this neck of the wine world? Really? Cool.2014 Ashbrook Estate VerdelhoI first tasted this bottle at Vinyl Wine, located about eight blocks north of me. And not only did I give it a try, but also a buy. Normally I ...

Feeling that #literlove  
I've been crushing on this format for years. These 1L bottles of wine pop up randomly and it delights me to discover a new one. Who doesn't look at a standard 750ml bottle and think of a conversation along these lines:"Say man, you got an extra 33% of wine?" "Uh, no, not on me, man.""It'd be a lot cooler if you did."[Disclosure: I don't talk to bottles of wine. Well, sometimes I do. But they never answer my questions.]OK, don't want to give the ¾...

One you loathe, the other you love. #taxtime   #wine  
Taxes and wine? Probably not like peanut butter and jelly as far as things that go together harmoniously. (Disclaimer: I am not an accountant but I do feel it safe to advise you to postpone wine drinking until completing your tax forms.)But hold on a second.Taxes and WineWhile dreaming up ideas for the April issue of Wine Enthusiast, Tax Day looming over everyone's head, I thought, "How about some wine recommendations for those who owe money and ...

Three #teas  that express #terroir . 
The notion of terroir, that a finished wine has a sense of place and qualities shaped by the environment surrounding the grapes, is well-documented. I've even heard it talked about regarding coffee. But tea? Why not? I, unfortunately, know just enough about tea to be dangerous. So one of the first things I did as Senior Editor at Wine Enthusiast was get in touch with Cynthia Gold. She's a Tea Sommelier at Boston's L'Espalier. Gold provided me wit...

Impressive inside and out. #CAwine   #melon  
If you love Muscadet as much as I do, here's a wine for you to hoard. Or purchase and share, whatevs. It's California Melon. The former being the state (duh) and the later being the name of the grape.Muscadet from the Loire Valley is a wine made from the Melon (de Bourgogne) grape. Outside of this (my favorite) wine region in France, one place domestically you can find the grape is Oregon. And, as this wine demonstrates, Melon is also in Californ...

Well that's Central Park but I swear this post is about a red wine for fans of the savory and cellar-worthy. #LoireValley   #CabFranc  
If I had to choose one red grape from one region I loved above all others, it would most likely be Cabernet Franc from France's Loire Valley. The wines tend to be everything I am looking for in a red: lighter style, not too boozy, and full of savory, non-fruity notes.Favorite Loire Valley Cabernet FrancBest Red Wine I've Had In YearsDrunken Nights: The WineBut not all Loire Cabernet Franc is on the delicate side.
