内容紹介

In a gorgeous wine valley in northern California, the economic downturn has put a number of dreams on hold. But not so for wine critic Clyde Craven-Jones, a man whose ego nearly surpasses his substantial girth. During a routine tasting in advance of his eponymous publication's new issue, he blindly samples a selection of Cabernets. To his confounded delight, he discovers one bottle worthy of his highest score (a 20, on the Craven-Jones-on- Wine scale), an accolade he's never before awarded.
But the bottle has no origin, no one seems to know how it appeared on his doorstep—and that's a problem for a critic who's supposed to know everything. An investigation into the mystery Cabernet commences, led by the Clyde's wife, Claire, and a couple of underdogs—one a determined throw-back to ancient viticulture, the other a wine-stained, Pygmalion-esque scribbler—who by wit and luck rise on incoming tides of money, notoriety, and, yes, love.
The stage is set for this true theater of the varietals—where the reader joins the local vinous glitterati and subterranean enthusiasts hanging out in a seedy bar called the Glass Act. Soon Clyde Craven-Jones finds himself in a compromised position in a fermentation tank, a prominent family finds its internal squabble a public scandal, and a lowly vintner seeks redemption for a decades-old wrongdoing. James Conaway's Nose is a witty, delectable, and fast-paced novel that, like a good Cabernet, only grows truly enjoyable once opened.

5つ星のうち 3.0 Had me for most of the book - lost me at the end 2014/4/26
投稿者 Penny Schenk - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
I can't tell you how disappointed I was. Mr. Conaway engaged me from the start - loved the characters, liked how they all wound up interacting. But it ended so abruptly. You can't get someone engaged in your characters and then just drop them like hot potatoes. I even went back and re-read the last chapter to make sure I hadn't missed something, but sadly I had not. It just felt like the author got bored at the end and just cut it off. I also wish there had been more development of the Ben character - he was so interesting There were also a lot of interesting plot threads that started and went nowhere - there was so much richness here and he just left a lot on the table. And why no showdown with Sarah and her father. Very unsatisfying. Anyway, worth reading, but be ready for not much of an ending. Sequel?

5つ星のうち 5.0 Good as it gets 2013/3/15
投稿者 J. S. Lang - (Amazon.com)
形式: ハードカバー Amazonで購入
Nose is fun to the bottom of the bottle and I can't recall a more enjoyable read. It's a mystery and a romance (a couple of them actually) and also a send-up of Napa in particular and the wine industry at large that amuses and never gets tiresome. The writer obviously has a fondness for the place, even as he skewers it, and for the product, too. Conaway, who has written two nonfiction books about Napa and has been the wine critic of The Washington Post, knows his stuff and it shows. Got my doubts about the solar-powered tractor he invents here, but none at all about the shenanigans. The story rings true because so much of it really is, with a lovely, lovely finish.

5つ星のうち 4.0 A knowledgeable look at Napa valley 2013/5/11
投稿者 Keith Marton - (Amazon.com)
形式: Kindle版 Amazonで購入
This was a charmingly written look--albeit fictional --at the upper tier wine world from someone who knows his stuff. The characters and events are fictional but they bear a strong resemblance to the real life of the Napa Valley and selected wine critics. The addition of a vinous "mystery" kept the flow going; thus, a quick, enjoyable read, especially if you're into wine.

An exceptional vintage. Robust,lively, with a long finish; not too long in the oak. Uncork this one and settle in for a delicious read. I downed the whole thing in one sitting.
