At least that's the message from several local wine professionals.

    Mettlers make an awesome cab that was over 15%.. or IS over 15%. It is yummy. But only one glass and no driving after that glass. Perfect to sip in front of the fireplace.

    Local wineries have seen positive growth in both sales and reputation. Whatever they're doing seems to be working well, so why change it. I would like to see one trend change. I'd like someone to start putting chardonnay back in a barrel. I like secondary fermentation in my chard. St. Amant is doing an outstanding job with all their wines, and ports. So is Jesse, Lucas, Van Ruiten, Macchia, Pasos, Watts, Klinker Brick, Century Oak, Old Lockeford, and those are just a few of my local faves. I use only one criteria, my tongue.

    "The interesting thing is the so-called wine experts are doing the complaining."
    Yep, and that's why they're wine experts. They know more than you or I. Why not order your Earthquake Zin in a Big Gulp cup with some fries to go? Nothing subtle here, then.
