  • St Joe is one of the most underrated regions IMO. Crozes too actually - I have some from 1990 that are just excellent.But yeah, the prices are getting stupid. I don't  think it will become Burgundy though. Burgundy is kind of a reaction to Bordeaux, whereas Hermitage used to be put INTO Bordeaux.So people who objected to the large corporate owne...

    Forum post in the topic Are you down with Dolcetto?

  • Thought this was an interesting mailer I'd share with you all. Already forwarded the e-mail to Fox as he is one of the few champions of Dolcetto that I know.

  • I agree with DM that the Ridge Geyserville is excellent.  I have enjoyed the handful of samples that I have tasted of the Geyserville.  I've never done a side-by-side blind comparison, though.  Here is a question for the Wisdom of the Snooth Crowd.  I have read, here on the Forum, I believe, that the Geyserville is more of an "early drinker" tha...

  • Canti Estate Gavi 2012


    Light straw color with slight hint of greenish hues. Aroma is flowery with granny smith apple. On the palate there is some mineral, dry but soft and very fresh with some nice fruit in the background.
