USA Wine

"American Wine" has existed since the first Europeans brought their vinous heritage and traditions to these shores from the Old World. In that sense, Appellation America is over 400 years old. American wine has endured ecological, political and social hardships over the centuries, but it has evolved with each challenge.
       Up to the late 1800s, the vine thrived in America, with the epicenter of winemaking in the Midwest along the banks of the Ohio River and shores of Lake Erie. At the turn of the last century phylloxera and Prohibition would together transform the viticultural landscape of America. In the 20th century, California would emerge as America’s dominate wine state (now producing 90% of the national total), but by the dawn of the 21st century winemaking would spread to every state in the union, with grapes grown in all but four. Across the 50 states exists the world's greatest diversity of climates, and virtually every species of vine can find a niche somewhere Read more »

  • Idaho is emerging as part of the new frontier for wine making, with 38 total wineries. From a geographical standpoint, the state has ideal growing conditions. Vinifera, or wine grapes, actually thrive in the distinctly four-season climate. Snake River Valley's lack of rainfall is also considered a plus, since potentially ruinous precipitation i...

  • Hall Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Grassy nose with some grapefruit. Hit of grapefruit on introduction, but not as over the top as many current California SB examples. Mid-palate the grapefruit is mediated by an herbal vegetative flavor and some mineral hints. Acid makes it a refreshing summer sipper. Read More

  • Elementary Cellars Volume I Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very murky maroon color. A bit of smoke on the nose (never noticed that in a CS before). Terrific entry to the mouth. There is a light hit of cassis, but not overwhelming. The murkiness in the color may have prejudiced me, but there is an unusual mouthfeel to this wine. It seems thicker than most. The tannin is really not that in your face... Read More

  • Early Mountain Vineyards Red Vine 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This Virginia red blend started off half way decent but faded fast. A blend of 38% Merlot, 27% Cab Franc, 14% Malbec, 11% Cab Sauv and 10% Petit Verdot, initial impression came across with some red berries, a touch of earth and a hint of oak. All of this dissipated fairly quickly leaving a hint of fruit, slightly chalky tannins and medium short ... Read More

  • Jarvis Tomei Syrah El Dorado 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines selection and what a lovely one. Opens with warm milk chocolate with a bit of rosemary, then black cherry and plum preserves and in the background tarragon. Bright tannins and medium acidity, a zing of alcohol, but very smooth. Long finish with more plum, chocolate, baking spices, and smoky spice. Continues to open more in the glas... Read More

  • Cellar No. 8 Chardonnay 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Most of the fruit for this California Chardonnay comes from Santa Barbara, giving this wine its dominant tropical character. Pineapple, melon and citrus on the nose and palate are framed by vanilla and spice. The wine is creamy and rich, for those who like a full-bodied white. Read More

  • Another area that doesnt get enough credit is South West Colorado. They make some really good wines. I really suggest checking them out. There is actualy a long history of wineries in Colorado before prohibition, but most wineries ripped out the vines to replace them with fruit trees to make money.
