California - North Coast on Snooth

  • Trentadue la Storia Merlot 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Not an earth shattering merlot but solid with good quality wine making behind it. A core of dark berry fruit, spice, woody notes, anise and chocolate leads to a sweetish flush of dark cherry tannins that are chewy and framing. Balanced acidity leads to a nice finish that's short but full. Drink now - Paul 88 points Read More

  • Ridge Geyserville 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very interesting wine. For those who recall the days when a Zinfandel was characterized as brambly, this aint it. The front label indicates that this wine is 73% Zin, 17% Carignan, 9% PS and 1% Mourvedre. This is a pretty gentle wine. A fair amount of red berry fruit on introduction, but nowhere near the tannin that I would expect. Not real... Read More

  • Toby Lane Vineyards Rose Alexander Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Solid wine built along the lines of a weaker red than a rose. Aromas of cherry and raspberry mix with anise, chocolate and spice - though they are heavier, it is still a refreshing wine. Drink now - Paul 86 points 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

  • Kendall-Jackson Grand Reserve Merlot 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Soft red fruit aromas of raspberry and sweet cherry with a bit of chalky earth and some floral notes on the nose. Dusty and dry in the mouth, this delivers a rich red fruit palate with a dose of medicine and dark chocolate towards the finish. Good acidity and fresh earthiness towards the finish add some complexity here. Read More

  • Zahtila Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Beckstoffer Vineyards Georges III 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Very dark purple in the glass. Something of a green viny nose. Lots of black currant/blackberry on the tip of the tongue. Some herbalitybasil, mintthat is, really, quite pleasant. Something of a dusty sensation which I would attribute to tannin. Not distracting, but noticeable. Something of slate or tarry sensation at the rear palate. A v... Read More

  • Frank Family Vineyards Zinfandel Napa Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This is milk chocolate covered strawberries with sugar frosting to a tee. This is truly decadent in the mouth, dark and rich blackberry preserves, spicy cinnamon and clove, chewy tannins and dark chocolate coming through towards the finish. 90 pts Read More

  • Quivet Cellars McGah Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly pale yellow color. Quite fruity on the nosepear, banana. Fruitiness is not as obvious on the tongue, but I do get some pear and some tropical hintsagain banana. Some herbal hints mid- to rear palate. Not as acidic as most contemporary California SBs seem to be and, again, thankfully, no overpowering grapefruit flavor. Maybe that fad ... Read More
