    Wine of the Week: 2009 Giovanni Almondo Roero Arneis 'Bricco della Ciliegie'

    The Review: La Serenata de Garibaldi
    In Los Angeles, 25 years entitles a restaurant to, if not a medal, then at the very least the title of institution. And this year (how time flies) marks the 25th anniversary for La Serenata de Garibaldi in Boyle Heights. Way back in 1985, Jose Rodriguez...

    Wine of the Week: 2009 Panizzi Vernaccia di San Gimignano

      2008 Centonze Frappato Made from 100% Frappato, a grape that is often blended with Nero d'Avola, this light red from Sicily is a delight. Fresh and lively with a lovely floral fragrance, it sees no oak before being bottled. A great warm-weather wine,...

    Wine of the week: 2009 Château d'Epiré Savennières 'Cuvée Speciale'
      In the Loire Valley, Chenin Blanc produces some fantastically alluring wines, among them Savennières from a small appellation in the Anjou region. I've always loved Château d'Epiré's crisp, minerally Savennières, but the 2009 "Cuvée Speciale" is...

    Wine of the Week: 2009 Domaine Sigalas Asirtiko-Athiri
      Don't just dream about the turquoise waters of the Aegean or the sunset seen from the island of Santorini when you can drink this stunning white wine made there. Vineyards have been established on Santorini for a while — oh, about 3,500 years....
  • Wine of the Week: 2009 Domaine de la Charmoise 'M. de Marionnet' Touraine Sauvignon Blanc

    Wine of the Week: 2009 Domaine de la Charmoise 'M. de Marionnet' Touraine Sauvignon Blanc
      Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley has a special character — minerally, lean, focused. At Domaine de la Charmoise in the Touraine, grapes from 40-year-old vines go into the signature Sauvignon Blanc "M. de Marionnet." I love the notes of...

    Wine of the Week: 2009 Larochette-Manciat Macon 'Les Morizottes'
      In glorious warm weather like this, if you're going to drink a Chardonnay, make it something crisp and minerally like this fine Macon. The fruit carries hints of celery seed, anise and melon. Lithe and elegant, this Maconnais Chardonnay isn't weighed...
  • Wine of the Week: 2007 Mountford 'Liaison' Pinot Noir

    Wine of the Week: 2007 Mountford 'Liaison' Pinot Noir
      What a lovely expression of Pinot Noir from New Zealand's Mountford estate. Elegant and smooth, this New World Pinot carries the taste of Santa Rosa plums and sweet Asian spices. The scent jumps right out of the glass — sandalwood, and...
