Bubbly: It’s a Summertime Thing

Who needs New Year's Eve? U.S. sparkling wines are ideal for warm-weather

Posted: May 14, 2014  By Tim Fish

It's a shame that so many Americans put off drinking sparkling wine until New Year's Eve. I crave it most in the summer when the days are sunny and I want something refreshing to drink. It also complements the lighter menus of summer like salads, seafood and chicken.

Here I highlight a handful of my favorite new sparkling wines: two of the top wines, two values and one superb rosé.

California’s Vintage 2014 Kicks into Gear

It looks like an early season as winemakers and growers hope for more rain

Posted: May 7, 2014  By Tim Fish

Things are getting busy in the vineyards of California right now. Vines are blooming in all but the coolest regions of the state. Those little flowers will turn into tiny grapes before you know it. I checked with a few winemakers and growers for the latest in the vineyards. The season is running early throughout the state, generally two weeks earlier than normal, but in some areas it's more than that. Which means that unless summer sends a weather curve ball, it will be another early harvest like 2013. Here are their reports from Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles, Santa Barbara and more.

Good Merlot for Less Than $20?

Winemaker Nick Goldschmidt makes winning values that retain a sense of place

Posted: April 30, 2014  By Tim Fish

Nick Goldschmidt is one of the busiest winemakers I know. He's more under-the-radar than his friends Michel Rolland and Paul Hobbs, but spends five months a year on the road consulting for 26 wineries in seven countries, including Mission Hill in New Zealand, Viña Errázuriz in Chile and Don Sebastiani & Sons in California.

His Alexander and Dry Creek Valley Merlots are well-made, true to the variety and sell for $20 or less. Here are my notes on five of his recently-released 2012s.

Growing Pains in Sonoma County

The chore of putting in a garden is lessened by thoughts of refreshing spring wines

Posted: April 23, 2014  By Tim Fish

It was such a beautiful day in Sonoma on Sunday that I started thinking about refreshing spring wines as I gardened. I like to take a break in the shade to sip a glass of wine, otherwise gardening seems like such a chore, so I pulled out a few wines to sample whenever my back started complaining. Here are 5 new reds and whites perfect for sipping outdoors this spring.
