SEPTEMBER 7, 2017 [1990, Article] Discovering wines of Dry Creek Valley with Ann Petersen
In fact, one article in the local paper in 1878 praised the region for producing some of the best wine in the state. Passport to Dry Creek Valley is coming up, an exciting annual event since 1990 that celebrates the region’s viticultural and epicurean bounty and the farmers, vintners, and families that are part of the region. Do you like Zinfandel? This variety can be considered a “California Classic” and grows well in many parts of the state.

SEPTEMBER 8, 2006 [1990, Article] Tasing Provence and The Loire
Next was a bottle of 1990 chinon 100% cab franc from the Loire region of France. The Loire is mostly known for their whites but who can pass up a $40 1990 from France. There is a reason this wine was $40 as a 1990. I was reading a great article in The Saturday Financial Times a couple of weeks ago about the state of Loire cab Franc today. So it was time to explore France via the east village.

AUGUST 2, 2007 [1990, Article] Here Is My Little Therory.Am I Nuts?
I feel that the 1990's were good and bad to merlot in the United States. By the end of the 1990's merlot was not what it was before the craze. Articles were written about the history of the grape and the number system was being put to work to help people get their pinot, whether it was from California or France or this place called New Zealand. So here's the deal. I am going to just put it out there and see what comes of it. Pinot noir is huge right now.

| FRIDAY, JUNE 12, 2009
As you may recall from a magazine article
I once wrote about finding birth year wines , 1971 is always a vintage that I keep an eye out for. Up next was the 1990
Mount Mary Vineyard Lilydale Cabernets Quintets , a lighter but rewarding style of cabernet that showing very well with a secondary blackcurrant note, lovely delicacy and great precision with no greenness or herbaciousness. Eyebrows arching, James Halliday spots an opening and intercepts the ball. MORE >>
DR. VINO [1990, Article] Natural wines, premox, chenin blanc, 07 Port and Rhone – John Gilman
| TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2009
For many years I did not really realize how much I liked Demi-Sec bottlings, despite my great fondness for German rieslings at the Spätlese level, but the research I did for my article
on Domaine Huet’s magical Vouvrays fully underscored just how brilliantly Demi-Sec bottlings age, and these days this is where I focus most of my own personal chenin blanc buying for my own cellar. John Gilman, author of the newsletter The View from the Cellar , joins us again for a Q&A. MORE >>
