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 »

  • Tess Blend Napa Valley NV

    Snoothrank:

    Vanilla, black pepper, raspberry and black cherry aromas. Bright red fruit and spice on the palate - cinnamon and brown sugar, ripe black cherries, teriyaki sauce, chocolate liqueur, and dried figs. Easy drinking and flavorful with a broad range of flavors blended together. Read More

  • Peju Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Lemon, honeydew melon and sunflower aromas with a touch of cut grass. Classic Napa Sauvignon Blanc character in the mouth - warm and clean, and driven by citrus fruits - lemon and lime, with a good dose of peach and apricot with gruyere cheese. The finish is creamy and long with hints of lemon ice or lemon creme. Read More

  • Rodney Strong Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Rough and tarry on the nose with waves of vanilla and black cherry, hints of rose petal and a bit of currant. Thin in the mouth, somehow lacking depth and still being quite easy drinking, there's a bit of spice on the finish accompanying dried fig, black cherry and cinnamon. Read More

  • Patz & Hall Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of apple and melon aromatics. Similar flavors hit the tongue on introduction. The wine does evolve as it passes back. Some hints of mineral mid-palate. Good citric acid mid- to back-palate. Controlled use of oakyou can detect the complexity that it adds, but this is no butter-bomb. Read More

  • Rodney Strong Chardonnay Sonoma County 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Full and rich on the nose with green apple, Meyer lemon and vanilla wrapped in rolled oats. In the mouth it's smooth and creamy, full of green apple, kiwi and lemon flavors with puckering acidity on the sides of the palate and a touch of cream on the finish. 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.
