  • Colomé Torrontés 2014

    Snoothrank:

    I bought a case of this on a hunch. It is not bad white wine but it is not great white wine. Read More

  • 2010 Santa Rita Medalla Real Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Had this with lunch at Marcello's Chophouse the other day. Beautiful little number, strong and dense Cabernet, but loads of herb and spice. Long lingering and rich finish of stewed fruit and spice...underpriced for this quality. Read More

  • Cono Sur Single Vineyard Riesling Block 23 Rulos del Alto 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Cono Sur rarely disappoints - whatever the price point. This Riesling is from an intermediate offering and has characteristics of a 2 year old Alsatian wine from an uncharacteristically warm vintage with petrol, stewed peach, apple, musk and ginger on the nose. The palate is treated to a clean, slightly warm (alcoholic) flow of spiced peach th... Read More

  • V V - Sorry to hear about that 2012 Liquid Farm Golden ... Spain/South America critic Luis Gutierrez's tasting of Bonvin's wines in early 2014. The Argentine Peso had dropped about 30% vs. the dollar, making the new targeted price for the 2011 edition of the MV Gran Reserva $60 in the USA. So, why can you buy it today for up to 70% less?Sometim... Read More

  • Weingut Montes-Alpha Syrah. Weingut Montes Neue Welt Chile Shiraz Weingut Montes Grosse 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Deep, deep opaque purple -opens with grape preserves and pine tar, bit more and mint with black and white pepper, then vanilla fudge and leather. Few swirls and nice bit of oak and more spice. Nice big mouthful, Medium dry long finish of cherry, smoke, damp earth, and tobacco. Drinking well now though a bit edgy, but think it will be better with... Read More

  • Layer Cake Malbec Malbec 2012

    Snoothrank:

    My wife opened a bottle of this. She poured a glass took a sip and said "this is horrible". I said to let it rest and try it later on. When I got back home after running an errand the bottle was gone. "Oh so it was..." "I poured it down the sink."So no we will not be buying again. Read More

  • Santiago Gougenheim Malbec Mendoza 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines selection. Opens with allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and blueberry jam, then cedar and vanilla. More of the same with a few swirls, Bit more fruit and less earth/savory/spice than other Malbecs that I have had and prefer, but a nice big smooth mouthfull. On the dry side, but well balanced and gains more complexity of more jam and cho... Read More
