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 »

    Wine review by LetUsTaste

  • Murphy-Goode Zinfandel Liar's Dice 2013


    Rich fruit aromas of blackberry syrup, floral sweetness, cinnamon and black cherry. Dark and brooding on the palate, ripe fruit notes of blackberry, black currant and black cherry with dark chocolate and black olive notes, with tart acidity and a bit of medicine coming in on the finish.

  • Bridget Raymond Intertwine Napa Valley Merlot 2014


    Another Naked Wines selection.Pale Garnet in the glass; Oak, Alcohol, Pine, and Mint; then some Cherry/Berry Jam; Fresh Green Grass and Pepper. A smooth mouthful with medium Tannins. Finishes soft with mint/milk chocolate, tobacco, and oak, then more berry fruit. A bit more fruit forward than I like, but still very drinkable. $14 Angel Pricing Read More

  • Kirland Signature Pinot Noir Carneros 2014


    A bit simple but it is old world in style, tastes like pinot noir and drank nicely with the salmon I had for supper. Just ten bucks. :-) I'm inclined to buy a couple more. Read More

  • Mirassou Pinot Grigio 2015


    Lemon and green apple aromas are simple but pleasant with a slight nuttiness to it. This has good lift on the palate and a smooth texture with notes of chunky green apple and pear, lemon and a short clean finish. Read More
