  • Aspara Syrah Carneros las Madres Vineyard 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Oh boy. This one is in a good spot right now. Charming red fruit on entry. Still supportive but definitely not obtrusive tannin provides good structure. Acid provided refreshment. Winner, winner. Read More

  • Grgich Hills Fume Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Nice and crisp. Suggestion of citruslemon, thankfully, not the grapefruit that seems too overdone with SBs. Very cleanno grassiness or herbalness. A very straightforward easy drinker. Read More

  • Carlisle Zinfandel Dry Creek Valley 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of blue makes the color more purple than red. Interesting. This one is a mouthful. Very chewy, almost, not quite, jammy on the tongue. Strong tannin. Im pretty sure this not my favorite DCV Zin. Its not bad, but it just seems overripe, to me. Read More

  • Bedrock Wine Co. Griffin's Lair Vineyard Syrah 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Gentle introduction of purple fruit on entry. Solid tannin and good acid. Terrific, lengthy finish. Read More

  • Parducci True Grit Chardonnay Reserve Mendocino 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Vanilla and coconut aromas with a touch of green apple and ripe green melon on the nose. In the mouth this is fairly soft and smooth textured, creamy and buttery with notes of apple and pear, a bit of fresh green herb and spice towards the warm finish. Read More

  • Stags' Leap Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Gentle on entry. Very light flavors of cassis, blueberry on the tip of the tongue. Some earthiness. Sturdy tannins and acid. I suppose that aging will not hurt this wine, but I really dont see any reason to not enjoy this wine now. Read More

  • Cabot Zinfandel Tributary 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Something of a phenolic nose. Lots of red fruit on entrystrawberry, plumand I should add tart fruit. Some tingling around the edges of the tongueanother indication of acid. An unfortunate harshness at the back of the palate. Its not clear to me whether this is from acid or alcohol. Noticeable, but not abusive tannin. For some reason or oth... Read More

  • Battaglini Estate Wines Zinfandel Russian River Valley Twin Pines Vineyards 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Fruity nose, but with noticeable alcohol. A LOT of red fruitraspberry, cherry, stone fruit--on entry. Then you are smacked by alcoholhot and bitter. I bought this bottle at an Italian deli a couple weeks ago. It has probably been laying on the shelf there for 5 or 6 years. So, it is entirely possible that the compromised storage has forced t...
