PATRICK'S WINE REVIEWS
An amazing wine, an amazing cause...
So much to choose from in New York City! So we chose something we can't find at home: Cuban-American cuisine. What a treat! And what a wine pairing!
Ever heard of Schiava? I didn't think so! This wonderful Italian red wine from Northern Italy is a food wine (of course), and this particular bottle by rock star winemaker Franz Gojer is a wonderful example of the grape.
The world's best Sauvignon Blancs: Sancerre? White Bordeaux? Certain California labels? New Zealand? Maybe! But this is the first Italian Sauvignon Blanc to blow our doors completely off.
It is possible to find extraordinary value in a white Bordeaux. Check this one out!
One of the kings of white wine. A gorgeous clean wine with only hints of steel and mineral. The dominant fruit is clementine. This carefully, scientifically hand-crafted wine can be aged for decades. The vintage we opened is the 2010. Most white wine of that vintage is dead and gone now!
Greek wine? YES! We're so in love with Assyrtiko and other Greek wines that we can't imagine eating Greek food with anything else (except maybe Sambuca).
Well, this one knocked us flat on our butts. What a stunner! Everything we love about Sauvignon Blanc in the summer.
An Oregon white wine at a great price in a fine Manhattan Beach restaurant two blocks off the gorgeous Pacific Ocean. We are lucky to be alive indeed.
A review of Lorenzi's fabulous new Zinfandel from the Temecula Valley AVA.
