MAY 19, 2011 Why is a wine flight called a flight? [reader mail]
Reader question: Why is a flight of wines called a “flight ? It’s tempting to say that the other names really didn’t take off. But, in reality, a flight is a grouping of similar objects , like a flight of stairs or a flight of geese.

MAY 17, 2011 Morel Hunting in Wisconsin
Foraging for morels on hunting grounds in North Freedom, Wisconsin has topically little to do with imbibing in New York, however, they are equally delightful (though eating morels is even more delightful) and I imagine that the readers of Imbibe New York care for morels just as much as us. Last year, Ellen, Oscar and I [.]. Beer Foraging foraging morels morels in wisconsin mushroom hunting

MAY 19, 2011 My Kingdom for a Glass of Wine.PLEASE
Another week gone by with out the taste of wine. Seven more days of anti-biotics and a party is about to break out. I have found out a few things about my blog while on this state of being dry. First, don't even try to post an article with out a glass of wine on hand. Each time I try, I just sit here looking at an empty screen with a mind that is completely blank. I did read a book.

MAY 17, 2011 Exposed - Asparagus and Red Wine.
Common wisdom holds that it's very difficult to pair wine with asparagus. I'm not sure why this is so. Every spring asparagus flood the farmers markets for a month or so and I eat them like they're going out of style.
DR. VINO The other Spain, as imported by Andre Tamers
| WEDNESDAY, MAY 18, 2011
A couple of weeks ago, Robert Parker went to Spain to collect a medal for his contributions to Spanish wine. However one views his impact on Spanish wine, it’s worth noting that it was only the second time he had been to democratic Spain.

VIGNA UVA VINO Gigi Rosso Roero Arneis 2010
| SATURDAY, MAY 14, 2011
Getting right to the point, this 100% Arneis an indigenous grape from the Roero district, bordering the Langhe, perfectly expresses the traditions to use only regional grapes. Showing clear pale lemon colors, aromas are clean and although fruit is present, there is a blooming bouquet of honeysuckle, fresh flowers, roasted hazelnut and an underlying herbal twist. The inviting aromas reveal a surprisingly textured mouthfeel, medium acidity with dry, earthy undertones, which is typically Arneis. MORE >>
SLAKED Crosby Roamann Bottling 2011
| WEDNESDAY, MAY 18, 2011
After months of torturously preparing our 2010 Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, tentatively named "Serotonin", and our 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, likely monikered "Dark Garden", we finally got around to bottling today, May 18, 2011. It was a chilly, slightly overcast morning in the city as I made my way north. And I'd like to say that I used this time to reflect on the wines I was about to bottle as I drove. But that wouldn't be true. MORE >>
DR. VINO Disposition, acquisitions, dentists and alc levels — sipped & spit
| TUESDAY, MAY 17, 2011
SIPPED: running the numbers. With all the discussion about alcohol levels in wine, I’m pleased that the results of an extensive story I did for Wine & Spirits magazine is now online. See our summary discussion.) In the story, we analyzed 84 randomly selected wines for alcohol levels and had some surprising findings. SIPPED: Stiff upper lip. Foreign diplomats can brace themselves for a general downgrading of wine at British official functions. MORE >>
