I've been the lead taster of New Zealand wines for five years, but I joke I've been covering the country since I did a report on the Kiwi bird in third grade. I even brought samples of kiwi fruit for my classmates to try. Introducing folks to the tastes of New Zealand? I've got that covered.
Wine Spectator's Oct. 15 issue includes both my annual report on New Zealand wines and a more comprehensive look at the country's impressive Pinot Noirs. New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs provide terrific value and consistency, but the story doesn't stop there: The emergence of Pinot Noir is the next chapter for this young wine country, providing a way to introduce wine lovers to some of its distinctive appellations.

I'm from Cleveland, so when I moved to California in 1996, a lot of my friends warned me about "The Big One." I assured them that I'd rather go years of maybe having an earthquake to knowing that I'd have to endure year after year of dreadful winters.
On Sunday morning, The Pretty Big One hit. It woke us up at 3:20 a.m. I live about 15 miles from the epicenter. It's an uneasy feeling, the ground rumbling underneath you, hearing things fall and break in your house, long seconds of wondering when it will be over. Thankfully, I'm fine, along with everyone I know.
