    Looking in the rearview mirror

    Welcome again to another aggravated assault on the English language, where a reader should resist the temptation to try to make any sense of what is written. Where I hope words are assembled with perfect syntax, enviable acuity and bold cleverness, yet you may be left in a vacuum, suffering from...

    My take on the dilemma of wine and food pairing

    Ahhhh, the grandeur of being a wine columnist, to write my completely biased opinion based, not on fact, but based on my opinion of the facts. This fashionable way of journalism, of course, presumes that the opinionated facts upon which I base my opinion are somewhat true — a real stretch in...

    Smell the Pinot Gris

    Thanks in advance for tagging along on this journey into the inaccurate and unbelievable.

    ‘Wood for Dummies’

    Once again, it’s time for you to be swept into the spiritual vortex of wine, where the truths and untruths of the precious liquid we all so love are homogenized by what you read right here in this shtick.

    Old World is for eating

    I hope you didn’t sashay past all the good reading in this edition to wind up at the back of the bus reading my narcissistic blither. Go back while you still have a chance! The editor thinks my column only deserves the attention of a masochistic insomniac having too much time on their hands...

    Try unrecognized wines from bad years

    Heartiest congratulations on reaching the last page; promising to be filled with folly rather than substance. If you opt to bore yourself with my typically self-indulging column, please accept my thanks in advance. I want to keep my columnist gig because, among other things, I make a huge amount...

    Merlot tasting offered varietal variances

    Thank you for reading the first sentence of unquestionably the least engaging part of this literary accumulation; the column I write. Some would argue the editor deserves combat pay for initially enduring my original work as he tests his skills on trying to make sense out of what I write. It’...

    Cabernet Franc is the Zeus (or Hera) of the grape world

    Now that you have exhaustively ingested the well–put, concise and worthwhile content heretofore expressed (oh, how lawyerly), you have reached the Winepress Northwest cure for insomnia.

    Nothing foolish about SB

    Again you arrive at the last substantive page of Wine Press that will ultimately result in floccinaucinihilipilification. This word will come to describe your critique of what you are about to read. I’ll save you and the editor(s) the keystrokes on Google; it means you will likely find this...
