The Sonoma Wine Journal

I picked up the inaugural issue of The Sonoma Wine Journal recently. Scheduled to be published on a bimonthly or quarterly basis, it is the work of several collaborating wine enthusiasts. Each issue will contain notes from one or more tastings focused on a particular varietal or grape-growing area but the thrust is wines from Sonoma County. For example, in Issue 1, there is a report of an extensive tasting of ultra-premium California Chardonnays. There are ten pages of wine reviews with extensive notes and scores covering many different Sonoma-grown varietals. The journal is free and still a work in progress, but shows great promise. For further information, contact the authors at their e-mail address:
