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 »

  • The Ojai Vineyard Puerta del Mar Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014


    So much light is coming through the glass on this oneits almost closer to a rose than a red. A bit of a funky nose that blows off fairly quickly. Light red fruit on entrystrawberry, plum, raspberry. Amazingly sharp tartness. Some bitterness or minerality way in the back palate. An enjoyable, if not epic, wine. Read More

    Wine review by RandyFisher

  • Dr. Konstantin Frank Rkatsiteli 2016


    Herbed lemongrass and green apple aromas with fresh cut lemon aromatics. Very citrusy on the palate with notes of fresh lemon and grapefruit, ripe pear juice and a burst of acidity on the attack that sustains throughout, this is crisp and refreshing with a warm spiced afterglow of white pepper and herbs. 89 pts Read More

    Gift from the Bassett's 2/21/2018. It has been a while since I last tasted a zinfandel. This one was not as spicy (not a fav of mine) as I remember the last one I tasted being. Therefore, it was right in my wheelhouse and I drank more of the bottle than I should have. Read More
