St. Helena; Napa on Snooth

  • Welcome to the Forum WW.  Of the wineries that you listed as tentative stops, the only one I have visited is Vincent Arroyo, and I certainly endorse your idea to visit them.  It definitely fits you goal of finding "off-beat wineries."  I had never heard of Jarvis (maybe I'm a troglodyte), but I visited their web site, and agree that they sound p...

  • If she's likening it to malolactic, once it's tamed we're talking more than just small batches. It's personally interesting to me that Zelma Long was playing around with it 25 or more years ago. She was someone I noticed when she moved to Simi from Mondavi at the end of the '70s. I began a book project that was catalyzed by a Capra Press (small,... Read More

  • Veedercrest Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Napa Valley 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Big woody nose. Pleasant on introduction to the tongue, but nondescript. At the tip of the tongue it seems watery. It takes a while to get to the mid-palate and edges of the tongue before a carmelly, raisiny flavor is detected. "Carmelly, raisiny" would make one think this is an over-done "cooked" wine, but it is not. Everything here is pre... Read More

  • Rombauer Vineyards Zinfandel California 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Perfectly sweet, no bitterness or after taste. Very unique. Great with dark chocolate. A little pricey for my budget, however it was on sale for 25% off. Bought one bottle and had to have more. Went back to the store and bought the rest of the bottles for 25% off. Read More

  • Joel Gott Cabernet Sauvignon California Blend 815 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Good wine for a reasonable price. I bit too wet for my taste when it comes to a cab. Spicy fruit and slight hints of smoke. I enjoyed it. Read More

  • Cult Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley By Salvestrin

    Snoothrank:

    Bought this on a suggestion from the folks at total wine, and it has turned out to be somewhat of a disappointment. I think there are much better cabs out there at a lower price. The nose has ripe fruit and slight licorice scents. The palate also has some muted fruit but is dominated by strong mushroom and earthy flavors. Less than medium comple... Read More

  • Joel Gott Cabernet Sauvignon California Blend 815 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a nice deep indigo in the glass while the nose is packed with ripe fruit, blueberries, cherries and ripe plums along with some lovely leather notes. The taste is wonderlully fruit forward with notes of blueberry, plum and cherry cola that transitions to some mineral notes mid palate. The finish is wonderfully dry, with a long, smooth...

  • I quite enjoy the Snooth Virtual Tastings.  It's been a while since I joined in the live event, because (I can't believe a retired person has this problem.) of schedule conflicts.  Even when I don't participate in the live event, I make time to view the archived recording.So, I was pleased to see that I had no conflict for the next VT--La Crema ...
