Hello all,

In 2017, we take it for granted that California wine can compete on a level playing field with the greatest wines of the world. Prior to 1976, however, that perception was not widespread. That was the year Stag's Leap SLV Cabernet and Chateau Montelena Chardonnay beat out the top Bordeaux and Burgundies in a blind tasting in Paris. Known today as The Judgement of Paris, it was the single instant that changed the course of wine history. Last week we profiled the current releases from Stag's Leap Wine Cellars.

In other news, we examined the baffling reasons why Canadian Club doesn't get any respect, gave comprehensive advice on how and why to start your own wine cellar, and examined the source of a great many "craft spirits" on the market---a commercial warehouse in Indiana.

Here are last week's posts:
