Silver Oak's Return to Form

Winemaker Dan Baron and the team at this longtime Napa Cabernet estate have made big changes at the winery, and they show in the 2010 vintage

Posted: March 30, 2015  By James Laube

It's not often that a venerable 40-year-old winery suddenly makes one of its best wines, perhaps in decades. But that may be the case with Silver Oak and its 2010 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Beringer Vineyards Brings Back a Beringer

Mark Beringer has been named the new head winemaker at the Napa icon

Posted: March 26, 2015  By James Laube

Anytime Beringer Vineyards puts a new winemaker in charge, it's news, because it doesn't happen very often. Laurie Hook is stepping back as chief winemaker at Beringer, where she has been a guiding force for more than two decades, and chief winemaker since 2000. She will remain with the winery as winemaker emeritus.

Her successor, Mark Beringer, is coming home.

A Chardonnay Convert

Longtime Zinfandel advocate Pete Seghesio charts a new wine path

Posted: March 19, 2015  By James Laube

There was a time not so long ago when Pete Seghesio bled Zinfandel. His family owned Seghesio Family Vineyards, one of California' top Zinfandel wineries, and he stood not only as the family spokesman but as one of the industry's strongest advocates for that often underappreciated wine.

The Great Exchange

A strong dollar in the 1980s turned Bordeaux first-growths into steals for U.S. wine drinkers

Posted: February 20, 2015  By James Laube

There was a time when currency exchange rates created a bonanza for American wine drinkers. My first real exposure to the benefits of a strong dollar occurred in the mid-1980s, when the dollar bought the equivalent of 10 French francs. The fanciest of French wines became bargains for American wine drinkers.
