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 »

  • 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

  • Schug Sauvignon Blanc Sonoma Coast 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Floral nose of wild flowers with some intriguing herbals coming through like tea leaf and grass with some peach and pineapple fruit. This is more about the mouthfeel than the acidity in the mouth, with some good fullness in the mouth and distant notes of grapefruit and gooseberry especially towards the finish. Read More

  • Montevina Skyland Ridge Barbera 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Take this for what it isa low-dollar wine (< $9, for me) wine that is easy to drink. A slight hit of strawberry fruit on the tip of the tongue that, fortunately, disapates quickly. Nice tartness (that I associate with a lot of Barberas) that gives it a refreshing characteristic. Not fancy, but very drinkable. Read More

  • Joel Gott 'Alakai' Grenache 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Had this one with Lunch yesterday at Marcello's Chophouse. Very interesting notes of Sake, in fact, loads of it - will need to try another bottle to see if the Sake smell and taste is an aberration. Medium-full in the mouth, silky, that a long and smooth finish with balanced medium Tannins and Acidity. Stewed Plum and ripe Cherries and White Pep... Read More

  • Francis Ford Coppola Diamond Collection Claret 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Fruit forward and a bit jammy pop and pour. With some air the Petite Verdot showed itself and provided some complexity. Other bottles have impressed me more. This bottle came from a grocers shelf while on vacation and perhaps that degraded the wine. Will try another bottle as I like the Petite Verdot influence. Read More
