How Ann Noble and the Wine Aroma Wheel Revolutionized the Industry

How Ann Noble and the Wine Aroma Wheel Revolutionized the Industry

Without a shared language, love can be challenging to describe. Similarly, talking about wine can be complicated without a common language, especially when referring to aromas and flavors. As America’s wine culture developed in the 1970s, writers and winemakers created their own vocabulary. By the 1980s, enologists started discussing wine in sensory terms. And in 1984, with a desire to create a shared system, Ann Noble, PhD, an enology professor at University of California, Davis, organized wine descriptors into the first Wine Aroma Wheel.

Allen Balik, The Wine Exchange: A ‘new’ recognition of ‘old’ vines

I am often asked about the importance of the “Old Vine” label designation and what significance it bears on a wine’s character. Although the term appears in the labeling of many different bottlings (especially Zinfandel), it has no legal designation in the U.S. or other wine producing countries.

The Good Wine Writer

Someone once told me that nothing in wine media gets page views like writing about wine writing. No one seems to be sure quite why this is the case. It might be because, in wine, everyone fancies themselves a writer. It might be because wine writers are an easy target. It might be, whisper it, because even when confined to a topic as limited and prosaic as wine, writing is an act that provokes much more interesting discussion than making beverages does.

Raising the price of wines by 15 to 20 % would offset overhead increases

Raising the price of wines by 15 to 20 % would offset overhead increases

For several months now, winegrowers have been faced with unprecedented increases in the cost of raw materials. According to a survey carried out by the Loir-et-Cher chamber of agriculture last April among winegrowers in the Centre-Loire Valley area and two distributors in Loir-et-Cher, the price of bottles has risen by 25 to 50%, boxes by 20 to 31%, labels by 20 to 34%, capsules by 11 to 20%, wooden posts by 5 to 15%, galvanised posts by 42 to 52%, and wires by 20 to 93%. In addition to this is the spiralling price of diesel and equipment, to name a few. On 1 May 2022, excluding marketing costs, this increases the production cost per litre of wine by 10% if a winegrower sells in bulk and by 13% if they sell in bottles. But if you include marketing costs and profit margins, which are crucial to businesses’ long term survival, the increase is an average 16%, based on average crop yields of 55 hl/ha. “With such a sharp increase in costs, there are two possible options: either I put my prices up by 3 to 5% and I dip into my profit margins; or I charge 15 to 20% more, but then I don’t know how my customers will react. What is your opinion?” Michel Badier, head of winegrowing at the Loir-et-Cher chamber of agriculture, asked winegrowers who took part in a dedicated webinar.

WINE AND “MAKING SPECIAL”
27 June 2022 19:47
WINE AND “MAKING SPECIAL”

In recent years there have been several important books devoted to understanding art as a product of human evolution. The art historian Ellen Dissanayake is one of the more prominent thinkers pursuing this line. She argues extensively in her books, Homo Aestheticus:
Where Art Come From and Why and Art and Intimacy: How the Arts Began, that the defining feature of art is that it involves “marking something as special.” Unlike other animals, humans deliberately “artify, by shaping, embellishing and otherwise fashioning aspects of their world
with the intention of making them more than ordinary.” Literature, music, painting or dance involves taking objects or behaviors that are ordinary and making them extraordinary.

A bicycling trip through Tuscany in 1999 inspired Eric LeVine to start CellarTracker, a wine tracking software and website that’s nearly two decades old. On the second night of the trip, he went to a tasting featuring four local wines: Chianti, Chianti Classico Riserva, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Brunello di Montalcino.

MECHANICAL HARVESTING – LOOKING BACK & LOOKING FORWARD

MECHANICAL HARVESTING – LOOKING BACK & LOOKING FORWARD

MONDAY, AUGUST 1, 2022. BY STEPHANIE BOLTON, PhD.

At the Lodi Winegrape Commission, we have a deep respect for the efforts of growers, viticulturists, and vintners who paved the way for us to farm today. It is common for people to stop in and share newspaper articles, books, and bottles of wine from long ago. We love seeing photos of our smiling growers as children in the vineyard and we also find comfort in knowing that there were challenges in the past that we survived as a community, like Prohibition. A good reminder and a healthy perspective.

Vin Blanc

Recently I reread Jim Harrison’s last book called “A Really Big Lunch.” If not familiar, Harrison was a prolific writer of poetry and prose, with works including the much-lauded trio of novellas called Legends of the Fall. He was also a raging gourmand with enormous appetites not unlike the fabled Gargantuan of Rabelaisian fame. I don’t make that statement lightly. Harrison was obsessed with good food and wine. He made no bones about drinking two bottles of Bandol rouge a day. Mind you he never bothered with conventional wine glasses instead opting for a huge tumbler and 12-ounce pours that he “gulped.”

A Dachshund’s Ear

My school coat was made of Harris Tweed. This is not relevant to anything, except that the other day I came across a wine with Harris Tweed tannins. They were good – brisk, slightly scratchy, but refreshing. Are we moving away from the idea that all tannins must be silky or velvety? If so, bring it on. There are more fabrics in the world than that, and more textures, too.

Wax seals on wine are messy ego trips. It’s time to say goodbye.

As a wine lover who has dedicated a big piece of my liver encouraging people to try different wines of various styles, classics and future classics, from regions far-flung and nearby, I am usually willing and eager to open any bottle and give it a try. But there are some I dread opening. And no, I don’t mean pet-nats. The bottles I recoil from are sealed in wax.

Bring Back the Widow’s Kiss

Bring Back the Widow’s Kiss

The “Widow’s Kiss” is the Platonic idea of cocktail names. It has an air of danger and mystery and it promises to seduce the drinker with its charms. So beguiling is the title that it was used by multiple pre-Prohibition greats, Harry Johnson, Jack Grohusko and William Schmidt among them. But it’s George Kappeler’s 1895 version—a mixture of apple brandy, yellow Chartreuse, Bénédictine and Angostura bitters—that has endured, likely because, with some tweaking, it still appeals to the modern drinker.
