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...

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Pinot Noir Russian River Valley 2014


    Rich, deep black cherry aromas that deliver incredible depth of fruit and are only slightly tempered by floral spice. In the mouth, this is decorated with black cherry and red currant notes, a touch of medicine, and baking spice leading up to the oak and smoky wood spice on the finish. Read More

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Sonoma County 2014


    Intriguing ripe berry aromas with wood spice and a flinty salinity on the nose alongside dark black cherry notes. This is expansive and quite fruity on entry with red fruit notes of ripe cherry, raspberry and a touch of medicine, soft structure and a finish of blueberry and delicate spice. Read More

  • Martin Ray Vineyards & Winery Chardonnay Russian River Valley 2015


    Warm, thick fruit forward aromas of baked apple, pear and vanilla caramel with some lemon hiding against the spice. This is a bit thin in the mouth but bursting with acidity, candied lemon drop notes towards the front of the palate, cream and butter towards the back and a warm stone fruit blend of peach and dried apricot welling up at the finish.

  • La Crema Pinot Noir Sonoma County 2014


    Ripe black cherry and spice aromas. Tart cranberry notes on entry with light earth and herbal freshness, notes of raspberry and strawberry coming through the midpalate and a licorice, medicinal note towards the finish with light tannins and more earthiness. Read More

  • Bay Bridge Vineyards Moscato NV


    Clear, crisp sweet taste. Nearly dessert wine sweetness in my opinion. Goes down fairly smoothly, but does have some other attribute that I don't know the name for. It's not as sharp as a bite, but almost adds a texture to the flavor. Worth buying again. Read More

  • Do you have the white organic wine call Re Leaf? I am looking for a wine that just has the natural sulphites from the grapes as otherwise I get headaches. Re Leaf agreed with me.

  • 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.
