"Penetrating the Mystery of Minerality"

Welcome to Vintrinsic Solutions


I have created this site for business contacts, friends and anyone else who may have an interest in my background.

In the pages that follow, there is information pertaining to my professional wine consulting services and wine

education activities.  You'll also find a brief biography describing my lengthy career in the wine trade as well as

examples of my work as a lecturer, writer, educator, and moderator.

I hope you enjoy the site. I perform all webmaster duties myself, and I am always trying to improve the appearance and content. Please give me your feedback!

You might enjoy reading a few of the articles and reference material I have created over the years. I'm working on the second edition of an e-book which compiles the Q&A from Local Wine Events entitled Answers to Wine Questions from Real People. Wine Tasting Vocabulary is a succinct lexicon of wine tasting terms, including a template to guide a serious taster. If you have an interest in old vintages from some of the world's most celebrated estates, don't miss Archives-Great Tastings Over the YearsThe Onion of Taste explores the complex factors which govern how each of us experiences the taste of wine and food.  Wine and Style and Wine and Food are based on a classification of wine by style attributes, and the foods that match each style grouping. And on every page, you'll find photographs I took of wines from my personal cellar, or those from tastings described in the Archives.

A fabulous Rhône:
Hermitage "La Chapelle" 1990 magnum

There have been many outstanding vintages of this benchmark Northern Rhône. I had the good fortune to be associated with this world-famous producer during the heyday of the Jaboulet family's involvement. The 1990 is one of the truly great modern vintages. It could be enjoyed now or kept much longer. I recall tasting the 1949 in 1998, and it was sublime! You may want to look over my notes on the Archives page (Half a Century of Hermitage "La Chapelle").
