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...

  • Adobe White 2014

    Snoothrank:

    This is the 2014 Clayhouse Adobe White, which is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Viognier, and Sauvignon Blanc from Paso Robles. This wine is a nice, enjoyable crisp, aromatic dry fruity white wine which tastes like a cross between a white Loire, and a white Rhone, which makes perfect sense, given the varietals in the blend. It's currently being cl... Read More

  • Adobe White 2015

    Snoothrank:

    This is the 2014 Clayhouse Adobe White, not the 2015. It's currently being cleared out in several places for $1.99 a bottle, at which price it's a screaming bargain, as it's a nice interesting bottle of floral dry white that tastes like a cross between a Loire and a Rhone, without any noticeable flaws normally found in $2 wines Read More

  • Flip Flop Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

  • Limerick Lane 1023 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Bright, tart red fruitcherryon entry. Interestingly, enough, the tartness almost suggests citrus, and, going really crazy, orange as much as anything. Some woodiness mid-palate. Medium-bodied. Not much tannin to speak of. A fun, easy-to-drink wine. Read More

  • Novelty Hill Cabernet Sauvignon Columbia valley 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Again, drinking above it's price point with dark berry fruits, red plum, damp earth, spice and herbal tones. Medium chewy tannins and excellent acidity gives the impression this could sit another 2-3 years. Drink or hold - 91 points - Paul Read More

  • Erath Vineyards Pinot Noir Oregon 2014

    Snoothrank:

    As usual, light bodied - but this fleshes out a little more with time. Plenty red berry fruit, bing cherry and a little tartness, spice, a little earthiness with light tannins and good acidity. Drink now - Paul - 87 points Read More

  • Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial Bottle NV

    Snoothrank:

    For a birthday party (such as today), the Imperial Brut is perfect. This Champagne is full of citrus and buttered toast - less Brioche and vanilla and more acidic refreshment here. Excellent effervescence and mousse. A great Epernay house producing a bubbly for quotidian use. 90. 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.
