  • 90 Max Ferd. Richter Helenenkloster Riesling Spatlese (Mosel): Neon lemon vibrant color. Slight TCA, but the acidity is just screaming good. #
  • 02 Trefethen Library Selection Cabernet Sauvignon (Napa Valley): Big, bold, but supremely focused. Ass-kicking black cherries dominate. #
  • 06 Inniskillin VIdal Gold Icewine (Niagara): Color, acidity, sugar, citrus, honeysuckle – it's all amped up to the extreme in this offering. #
  • 08 Black Box Chardonnay (Monterey): Yes, it's from a box, but if you're buying Yellowtail Chard instead of this easy-drinker, you're insane. #
  • 05 Innocent Bystander Bleeding Heart (Australia): Drinkable but somewhat dysfunctional Sangiovese/Merlot blend. Hints of pepper add interest #
  • 07 m2 Soucie Vineyard Old Vine Zinfandel (Lodi): Dried black fruit, chocolate, & cola. Like James Bown's papa, this wine don't take no mess! #
  • 08 St. Supery Dollarhide Sauvignon Blanc (Napa Valley): Not subtle but certainly complex w/ passion fruit, citrus & grass. Great job on this #

August Edition of Chester County Cuisine & Nightlife Hits the Stands

Vinted on August 14, 2009 binned in about 1winedude blog, Penns Woods, pennsylvania, wine publications

A very quick blurb to let you know that the latest edition of Chester County Cuisine & Nightlife has hit the stands.  This month’s issue (August 2009) includes a piece that I wrote in late 2008 on Penns Woods winemaker Gino Razzi.

CCC, masterminded by WCDish.com co-founder and irrepressible Philly-area foodie Mary Bingham, continues to improve with every issue and seems like it’s really starting to hit its stride.  And best of all, it’s FREE.

So if you happen to find yourself in visiting, living in, or mysteriously waking up somewhere in Chester County, PA, be sure to grab yourself a copy or two, or hit the PDF after the jump for a tree-friendly version!

Cheers!

In the words of the wise and eloquent bard Homer Simpson, “DOH!”

Seems that 1WineDude.com is having some serious trouble this week. It’s possible that many of you have been getting very slow response times from the blog, having it time-out, or are receiving errors.

It’s not you, it’s most definitely us.

I do know about it, and so does my hosting provider, who is working on the issue now.  We’re hoping to have things running normally again very soon.

Sorry for the inconvenience.  I’ll be keeping you updated on status via twitter as events warrant.

Don’t let a little thing like this come between us, okay?  I’ll make it up to you.  I promise

Cheers!
