Native New Yorker James Molesworth was surrounded by wine growing up. After graduating college, he took a job at a famed New York retailer specializing in Burgundy. He moved to the restaurant side as a cellar-master and eventually Sommelier at the legendary 21 Club. James joined Wine Spectator in 1997 as a tasting coordinator and was elevated to Senior Editor in 2004. He became a regular taster in 2000 and his tasting beat covers Cali cabs, Bordeaux, The Rhone, Loire, Port and South African wines.
