An Excellent Value in 2010 Bordeaux

IMG_1336

Here we’ll review one of our 2010 Bordeaux bottles, in this case a Medoc wine with a fairly modest price tag. The wine is another great example of what we always say, buy lower priced Chateaux in great Bordeaux vintages – that’s where the great values lie. As further proof we offer the following:

Wine:

Visit to Diamond Hill Vineyards in Cumberland, RI

diamond house

Something we generally do at least once every year, and preferably more than that, is take the short drive up Route 295 to visit Diamond Hill Vineyards. As we have previously reported, Diamond Hill is one of our favorite New England wineries. There are a few reasons for that, including the fact that they still

Dining Review: Jamestown FiSH in Jamestown, RI

Two years is about how long Cheri and I have talked about going to Jamestown FiSH to see what the fuss is about. We’ve had bites of chef Matthew MacCartney’s food at various wine events, seen the restaurant’s name in various places, and certainly noticed the consecutive Food & Wine “People’s Best New Chef” New

Dining Review: Bouchard in Newport RI

If you look at any dining guide for Newport, RI, you are always going to see one restaurant near the top. That restaurant is Bouchard, on Lower Thames Street. This stalwart of French cuisine is generally crowded, requires reservations, and gets lots of 5 star ratings. We were recently out with friends during Newport Restaurant

Product Review: Barvivo Wood Handle Corkscrew

The folks at Barvivo recently sent us a corkscrew for evaluation. We’ll try anything at least once, within reason, but in this case we tried it many times over the course of several weeks to get a good feel for how the tool measured up. This is not an expensive corkscrew, checking in at around

Library Wine – 2007 Mt. Veeder Reserve

mt veeder 2007 reserve

Since it was our anniversary this past week we pulled a library wine out of one of the wine fridges and splurged a bit. The wine was the 2007 Mt. Veeder Reserve from Napa. This wine is a pretty typical Bordeaux blend, although there is no Cabernet Franc to be found. It’s a blend of

Visit to Leyden Farm Vineyards and Winery – November 2015

We recently stopped by another of our local New England wineries, this time Leyden Farm in West Greenwich, RI. Leyden Farm is a relatively new winery, only being open for business for the past three or four years. We visited about two years ago to see how things were going, and they had just opened

The Wines of Marchesi de’Frescobaldi

Mark Gasbarro just hosted a wine tasting featuring the wines of Marchesi de’Frescobaldi. If you haven’t been to one of Mark’s tastings get out and try one. They are the best deal in town, as they are free and usually feature some pretty high end wines. This was a good one.

A well attended
