One of the true gentlemen of wine writing has died. David Jones was my friend and colleague for many years. A stalwart of the Bay Area’s wine writing community, David could always be counted on. He seemed to be everywhere, all the time, at every tasting, every opening, every seminar, and always he was filled with cheer and wit. Even in these last few months, when his illness consumed his body, his mind was on fire. David Jones will be missed.
