{image_1}Brounstein mythologized the early work of her second husband, Al, with whom she moved from Los Angeles to the western hills of Napa Valley in 1967. Long before he began to suffer from Parkinson’s disease, complications from which would eventually take his life in 2006, Al Brounstein had grown...Read Full Story

2017 Porto (News & Features)

{image_1}Vintage Port declarations are not an annual occurrence. Historically, the leading houses declare about three Vintages in a decade, bottling the top sliver of their production instead of aging it to Tawny in cask. The great Vintages are among the world’s most long-lived wines. Loath to saturate...Read Full Story

Avocado and Krug, Who Knew? (News & Features)

{image_1}What was astonishing about this $1,800 dinner was that there was no meat. The menu did include seafood—a diver scallop course (turnip, kohlrabi, sprouting cauliflower, Meyer lemon-horseradish, chowder), and a Spanish octopus dish (shelling beans, bacon, fines herbs, puffed wild rice, preserved lemon) which several guests considered the...Read Full Story

Claude Branger 2016 Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie Terroir Les Gras Moutons (Wine Review)

The Brangers farm 18 acres of vines in Les Gras Moutons, the site's name believed to be an old French reference to a prominent rise (gros moton) rather than the direct contemporary translation of a voluptuously proportioned sheep. This 2016 is, however, pretty voluptuous in its concentrated flavors, completely integrated, all...Read Full Story

Iron Horse 2014 Green Valley of Russian River Valley Wedding Cuvée (Wine Review)

This fresh vintage of Iron Horse's Wedding Cuvée is coral pink, like an English garden rose, a pretty wine with structure and depth to it. The pink continues into strawberry flavors and brisk pink-grapefruit acidity, all of it finely integrated through its time on the lees. It's clean...Read Full Story
