California - North Coast on Snooth

  • Kenwood Vineyards Pinot Gris 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This is certainly pungent, and fruity though with aromas of tropical fruit leaning towards guava along with cooked apricot and melon it is somewhat atypical. Gentle on the palate, a little swet and with fruity flavors that recall the nose but show nice restraint this is a very appealing wine to a broad spectrum of consumer looking for something ...

  • J Pinot Gris 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Tight, fresh, lemony and slightly muscatty with floral notes on the nose. In the mouth this is lighter that you might expect front he nose with simple yet fresh flavors of sweet apple and pears buttressed by gently supporting acids. It's a Iight and fresh wine that turns more citrusy with air and gains a subtle chalky note on the fairly long fi... Read More

  • Franus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

    Snoothrank:

    Very attractive more-red-than-purple color in the glass. Blackberry aroma on the nosesnot the big oak thing that comes with a lot of cabs. Again, some blackberry fruit on the tip of the tongue, but, then two things are observed almost simultaneously. First, this is not a terribly full-bodied wineit is much lighter than the standard California... Read More

  • Daytripper Clarksburg Petite Sirah 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A Tasting Room quarterly selection also available from Lot 18. This is the Lot 18 review which I found pretty accurate. '...At first sip, this could be mistaken for a ripe Zinfandel or Syrah, with its incredibly juicy berry fruit, fleshy plum and spice character. But the concentration of flavors and supple texture on the finish remind you that i... Read More

  • Valdez Quinn Vineyard Zinfandel Sonoma County Dry Creek Valley 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent Dry Creek zin from Valdez. This is more subtle than some of their other zins, less jammy and a bit more refined. Still has abundant red and black fruits, blueberry compote, moderate acidity and fine grained tannins. Read More

  • Carlisle Zinfandel Russian River Valley Carlisle Vineyard 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Dark and earthy on the nose with lovely integrated wood spice notes, rich briar and tobacco notes and a base of spiced dry cherries. Velvety in the mouth with lovely, nuanced briery red fruits and a hint of plum accenting the raspberries and cherries that gain lovely wood spice notes on the backend. The finish is long, detailed and full with ri... Read More

  • Copain Pinot Noir Tous Ensemble 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Not a particularly well-balanced wine but very interesting and positive for the price. Delicate but assertive, the nose has some funk and leathery aspects that contrast with the juicy mouth feel. Not overly-fruity but juicy with some tart notes. Finishes where it started with oak and vanilla. Quite a ride! Read More

  • Ceritas Elliott Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very interesting translucent, slightly murky, ruby colorpretty much what I expect from PN. Intriguing, somewhat unctuous nose. Very light on the palate. Very moderate fruitmaybe, a faint strawberry, but, then, a stiff acid hit almost makes me think lemon. A refreshing red wine that might be winner winner with a grilled/roasted Cornish Game H...

    Wine review by Ivan Chaney


  • Slingshot Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a dark ruby in the glass, a classic Cabernet color. The nose, I must admit was surprising. It was a lovely combination of black fruit, blackberry and black cherry intermingled with a bit of anise, black pepper and a hint of mint. The taste was a blast of rich jammy fruit, much more like a Lodi Zinfandel than a Napa Cabernet, but t... Read More
