A Great Deal on Some Great Wines from Casey Flat Ranch

A Selection of Casey Flat Ranch Wines

You probably haven’t heard of Casey Flat Ranch. It’s in the Vaca Mountains, adjoining the Capay Valley, just east of Napa Valley in California. Nestled inside this 6000 acre ranch are about 24 acres of Bordeaux and Rhone varietal grapevines, and these vines provide the source for Casey Flat’s Estate wines. They also source fruit

Another Excellent 2005 Bordeaux, and Something Else – October 2013

CIMG2074

Here are two more reds for consideration, although I really only recommend you consider one of them. One is a Columbia Valley Washington Cabernet from The Magnificent Wine Company, the other a Cotes de Castillon from the excellent 2005 Bordeaux vintage. One under performs, the other greatly over performs. The price difference is not anywhere

An Amazing Tasting of Gaja Wines at Gasbarro’s on Federal Hill

The Bolgheris

Wow!

I’m seriously tempted to just leave it at that, because this wine tasting was something special. Where to start? How about world class wines all around, and I do mean world class. Add in an intimate setting inside Gasbarro’s on Federal Hill and it gets better. Finally, toss in a representative from one of

Two Reds Worth Buying – From September 2013

CIMG1968

We’ve been so busy covering wine related events recently that’s it’s been a while since our last straightforward wine review. Not that we haven’t reviewed dozens of wines related to the festivals, but here we get back to two bottles we opened at home. These are both modestly priced and bring some good qualities to

Bacon wrapped dates and Sherry

Cheri and I just attended the Greenwich Wine and Food Festival and have to report that it is a fun day, with excellent food, more wine than we expected and an impressive array of celebrity talent. You can stroll around for a while enjoying the abundant food options, try some wine, a new cocktail or

While we tend to focus on reds, there is this whole sub-culture that drinks white wines and seems to enjoy them. We do too of course, though we do drink a lot more red. There were some excellent white wines at the recent 2013 Newport Mansions Wine and Food Festival. Listed below are some of

Gaja Tasting at Gasbarro’s on Federal Hill – October 17th

If you haven’t visited Gasbarro’s on Federal Hill in Providence then you haven’t seen one of the finest wine shops in the area. Mark Gasbarro has the most amazing selection of Italian wines you’ll see anywhere. I recently went in looking for a specific white wine, a Falanghina from Campania, and not only did they
