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 »

  • Idaho is emerging as part of the new frontier for wine making, with 38 total wineries. From a geographical standpoint, the state has ideal growing conditions. Vinifera, or wine grapes, actually thrive in the distinctly four-season climate. Snake River Valley's lack of rainfall is also considered a plus, since potentially ruinous precipitation i...

  • Isis Monterey County Pinot Noir 2013 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A Lot 18 Quarterly Selection and another one bottled for Lot 18. I see that on other sites this wine received generally low reviews. Had better luck with it. Opens with surprising orange peel, baking spices, and lavender, then moss, earth, and vanilla, then cherry cola and chocolate. Medium to low tannins and acidity with a medium long finish of...

  • Aspara Syrah Carneros las Madres Vineyard 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Opened from my vault and let a glass sit for about a half-hour before tasting. Viney or herbaceous nose. However, as the wine warms up a bit Im starting to get a cocoa or mocha thing. A bit stark on entry. Light hit of various red-fruit flavorsred plum, red cherry. Something of a hint of coffee or, maybe, nuttiness around the edge of the to... Read More

  • Adelaida Version White Anna's Vineyard 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Solid white blend from Adelaida. The Viognier comes through on the nose with really nice floral aromatics. On the palate the Roussanne brings some butterscotch, while the Grenache Blanc brings along a creamy lemon note. Very nice acidity cleans things up along with a medium long finish. At 14.8% abv the alcohol is not shy but is well balanced ... Read More

  • Tablas Creek Red Rhone Blend Paso Robles En Gobelet 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly nice Rhone blend from Paso's Tablas Creek. The nose was dark berries with a touch of smoke and tar. The palate was a bit subdued and somewhat shutdown. There was some black cherry and ripe black plum along with a bit of cedar. The acidity was decent and the finish a tad short. May have needed some more time to breathe. Read More

  • The Stringer California Chardonnay 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A Lot 18 quarterly selection. Pear and peach with nutmeg and allspice as it opens. More peach and pear. Fruit forward Chardonnay with minimal oak and very light body and light acidity. Nothing that special, though at the price point would suspect this one compares very favorably with others in this price. Read More

  • Carlisle Zinfandel Sonoma County 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Was a bit anxious about this one since it was a gift from a neighbor/friend and storage was questionable. Initial taste on opening was that this was a bit "hot", which at 15.8% abv wasn't unexpected. Visual inspection showed only slight bricking on the rim with a nice ruby core. On the nose is more heat and some smoke and dry earth. After 1-2 ho... Read More

  • Another area that doesnt get enough credit is South West Colorado. They make some really good wines. I really suggest checking them out. There is actualy a long history of wineries in Colorado before prohibition, but most wineries ripped out the vines to replace them with fruit trees to make money.
