No need for “shock of the new”. Go old-fangled, with classic expressions of classic wines

October 18, 2012 § Leave a comment

This week I dial it back a touch. If you’re always on the lookout for the latest, weirdest, off-beatest, you’ll miss the beauty right in front of your eyes. Cases in point: four terrific wines from oh-sigh-boring grapes — Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon — from oh-sigh-boring regions: Friuli, Piemonte, Bordeaux, Cali Central Coast. Ah, but the wines…the wines…

“Their only messages are from an almost Asian sphere of pure taste, pure expression of land.”
