California - North Coast on Snooth

  • Bell Wine Cellars Claret 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Dark purple color. Oaky vanilla bouquet. Lightish black fruit on entry. Vanilla pops up, again, in the mid-palate. Apparent, but not obnoxious tannin. Same for acid. Fairly lengthy aftertaste. A full-bodied wine, but, because of the light touch of many of the flavors, a wine that is easy to drink without accompaniment. Read More

  • Matanzas Creek Winery Sauvignon Blanc Bennett Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Sawdust aromas immediately on the nose with pencil shavings and nectarine fruit shining through the oaky notes. Highly floral in the mouth, showing a bit of golden berries and pear, and finishing very tartly lemony. Curious and complex and tasty. Read More

  • Eric Kent Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This is a very enjoyable Sonoma Coast Chard from Eric Kent. The nose comes across a bit buttery and spicy but not overly so. The palate is balanced, soft and creamy with notes of creme brulee, lemon pith, a touch of butterscotch, medium acidity and a medium finish. Read More

  • Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark blackberry aromas and black cherry preserves with an herbal note in the glass. Rich chocolate and black cherry in the mouth, with waves of chewy tannins coming in through the midpalate and adding an excellent texture to the plum and black currant flavors. On the finish this again turns a bit herbal showing some black olive notes alongside d... Read More

  • Stags' Leap Winery Merlot 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Somewhat of a volatile nose with a bit of a funk. Lively red fruit on the tip of the tongue. Somewhat medium level tannin. Moderate acid. Nothing wrong with it, but not a particularly memorable wine. Read More

  • Murphy Goode Zinfandel Liar's Dice 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Something of an herbally or grassy nose. Light hit of red fruit on entry. Similarly, fairly light on tannin and acid. A perfectly fine wine for a light dinner/lunch. Read More
