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 »

  • Toby Lane Vineyards Rose Alexander Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Solid wine built along the lines of a weaker red than a rose. Aromas of cherry and raspberry mix with anise, chocolate and spice - though they are heavier, it is still a refreshing wine. Drink now - Paul 86 points Read More

  • Edmeades Shamrock Vineyard Zinfandel Mendocino County 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Powerful aromatics of earthy salinity, ripe raspberry and black cherry and a floral violet note on the nose. This is nicely heated on the palate, with a well rounded spice box of cinnamon, clove and anise coming through and more black cherry and bright red fruits washing over towards the finish that turns floral again right before it becomes all...

  • Josh Cellars Pinot Noir 2014

    Snoothrank:

    It's ok... too sweet for a pinot noir, tastes like blackberry brandy, a bit syrupy even, if you like sweeter I guess it's ok Read More

  • Aspara Syrah Carneros Las Madres Vineyard 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Some raspberry in the nose, but, then, more earthiness. Slightest hit of raspberry, but, mostly, earthiness, meatiness, maybe, mushroom on entry. A very interesting wine in that none of those flavors dominate. As soon as I detect one, it moves on and the next one steps in. Very modest in both tannin and acid. An outstanding wine. Read More

  • Foppiano Vineyards Petite Sirah 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Dark purple in the glass as you would expect from a PS. Very fruity noseof dark berries. Big hit of fruit on introductionsweeter than blackberry, more like blueberry. Not a blockbuster PS. Very light on both tannin and acid. More of an easy drinker. Very easily worth the $15 I spent on it. Read More

  • The wonderful wines of B.C. are my favorite, however I am fast becoming a Washington wine lover. Terra Blanca wineries are the best...they have it all, good wine and food is just part of the experience at this winery. Bookwalter is another very good winery in the Tri city area of Washington.

  • "Gnary Head Cellars" (Manteca, CA). Try their zinfandel, and cabernet. These are truly wines worthy of praise! Great with BBQ pork and beef even better with a pasta and tomato sauce.
