  • Myriad Semillon Tofanelli Vineyard Napa Valley 2016

    Snoothrank:

    VERY refreshing. Nice entry of unsweetened tropical fruitpineapple, bananaand, maybe, even, green apple. Green apple may come from acidic tartness. I am really getting tingling on the top of my tongue from the acid. Im now getting lemon zest. Great summer sipper. Read More

  • J Vineyard & Winery Sparkling Brut Rose NV

    Snoothrank:

    Pleasantly rustic, smoky strawberry and sour cherry aromas with a creamy vanilla note and light toast. The palate is full bodied, zesty and decadent with cherry, strawberry and ripe watermelon notes, a buoyant acidity and lively texture with a bit of grapefruit zest and vanilla frosting on the finish adding some depth.

  • Joseph Swan Vineyards Zinfandel Russian River Valley Mancini Ranch 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Quite tart. Red fruit. Maybe, OK, I know its not red, blueberry. There is sweetness to the berry flavor, but it is not too serious. There also seems to be some spicinessnot pepper or anything like that, but, more, a suggestion of cinnamon or cuminOK, maybe its a texture thing more than a tastelike these powdered spices have been dissolved in ...

  • Chateau Ste. Michelle 50th Anniversary Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Such a value. This Anniversary release is 2015 Ste. Michelle Vineyards Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from Paterson, Washington rates honorable mention in this review. Lush black and red berries permeate the taste buds. Soft well balanced depth with mellow tannins and a mouth feel of rich lasting whole notes. Like a musical sonata. A nice de... Read More

  • 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
