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 »

    Comment by 281773Moya Shatz 281773 Moya Shatz

  • 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...

  • Lagier Meredith Tribidrag 2018


    Light red raspberry on introduction. A spice suggestive of clove. Slightly tart. A "lean" mouthfeel--nothing like "jammy" feel that I often see in Zinfandel. Quite refreshing. In four or five previous Tribidrag vintages I have tried over the years, this one is clearly the best. Read More

  • Pursuit Campfire Red Proprietary 2016


    Nose of dark berries. Dark fruit on entry--blackberry, blueberry, cassis--that I would usually associate with high Cabernet Sauvignon content. Some mid-palate leather. Big tannin. For $20, an OK wine. Read More

  • Derby Wine Estates Project España 2014


    Candied red berry/cherry fruit on the tip of the tongue, Viscous mouthfeel. While this wine does not seem particularly hot, even at 15.7 % ABV, I wonder if the alcohol is adding to the sweetness of the fruit that caused me to call it "candied." An OK wine, and, for $17, perfectly functional. Read More

  • Bucklin Sonoma Valley Zinfandel Bambino Old Hill Ranch 2018


    Terrific wine. Lots of red berry fruit, but, thankfully, not over the top. Then I notice a tang (orange? lemon?) around the edges of my tongue. Sturdy tannin. Pleasant aftertaste. From vines planted in 1998. Hence the "Bambino" name. Read More

  • Lutum Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard 2014


    Dull red color. Fairly nondescript nose. Tart cherry on the tip of the tongue, Then there might be a slight suggestion of cola. Overall, though, this one is pretty tart, Some slate. An OK wine, but it is not particularly winning me over. Read More

  • Arnot-Roberts Handal-Denier Vineyard Falanghina 2019


    Vibrant gold color. Nose of stewed stone fruit. Tropical fruit on the tongue--papaya, pineapple. Some caramel-like richness. Not as light-bodied as I would have guessed but the abundant fruit certainly gives it a mouth-filling character. Read More

    Muted blackberry on the tip of the tongue. Suggestion of citric acid on the back and edges of the tongue. Some slight salinity. Viscous mouthfeel notwithstandin, it seems to me something of a "rustic" wine. Retro-nasal hint of baking spices. Good wine. Read More

  • Rivers-Marie Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2017


    Dull red color. The wine is clear. The dullness is not caused by murkines. Fruity nose that suggests tropical fruit(?). On the tongue, I get a light hit of red berries--cherry, as much as anything. Some mid-palate minerality. Pleasant acid spritz around the edges of the tongue. Medium bodied. Pleasant enough wine, 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.
