  • 2013 Prisoner Wine Co Proprietary White Blindfold
    <font color='maroon'><b><a href='http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/th.aspx?th=306042&id=1&___z=f05aLLnf0vq0Ci5Hdhm2TA%3d%3d'>2013 Prisoner Wine Co Proprietary White Blindfold</a></b></font><br>A blend of 30% Chardonnay, 20% Viognier, 20% Roussanne and the balance Grenache Blanc, Chenin Blanc and a few other grapes, the 2013 Proprietary White Blindfold is close in quality to the brilliant 2012 I reviewed last year. Reminiscent of some of Sine Qua Non’s white wines from California’s Central Coast, the 2013 is more zesty, and plays it closer to the vest, but it offers lovely notes of fresh pineapple, tangerine skins, orange marmalade, melon and honeysuckle. I wish more California wineries would consider using such innovative blends as this given the high quality that can result. This beauty should be enjoyed over the next several years. This brand was first created by Orin Swift, but is now run by winemaker Jen Beloz and David Phinney. The wines’ impressive labels reflect the innovative and creative nature of this wine company. Importer(s): The Prisoner Wine Co, (707) 967-9168, www.theprisonerwinecompany.com<br> Rating: 90  <a href=http://www.erobertparker.com/newsearch/pfio.aspx?id=306042 >Estimated Cost: $30-$35</a>

But a chart in the WSJ, reproduced above, shows the scale and speed of that of that collapse, as Bud sales have cratered, falling by 50% over the last decade to 16 million barrels.

  • Meet Roy Welland who is selling $15 million of wine
    <p>Roy Welland is a big-time collector. It’s well known that his collection served as the core of the restaurant CRU, which he owned. But it’s not well known that his collection also helped out Alinea when they first opened. That’s one of the many interesting tidbits I learned when I talked to Welland before the […]</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com/2014/11/21/roy-welland-wine/">Meet Roy Welland who is selling $15 million of wine</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.drvino.com">Dr Vino's wine blog</a>.</p>
