Napa; Sonoma on Snooth

  • Quivet Cellars Las Madres Vineyard Hulda Block Syrah 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark purple color. Sulphur funk takes a few minutes to dissipate. Spritz on the tip of the tongue. Lots of red fruit--strawberry, plum. Some black pepper and some earthiness mid-palate. Stiff tannin balanced, though, by acid. Pleasant finish. Read More

  • Acacia Pinot Noir Carneros 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Ugly chemical noseprobably sulphur. Light cherry flavor on the tip of the tongue. Then, not much of anything else. Pretty much, a pedestrian wine. On the other hand, once you get past the nose, it really doesnt suck. Read More

  • Friday night with our good wine drinkin' buddies.  Hot and humid here in NC so we started with some well chilled bubbles - LP is one of our go to Champers, excellent QPR.  Bing and Debbie brought the Ramey Chard purchased during our tasting there on our March trip to Sonoma/Napa.  Big, layered and rich, a good bit of well integrated oak along wi...

  • Looking merely at wine, was wondering how the current hodge-podge of Trump policy initiatives may affect the beverage we like so much. A couple of early guesses:USDA budget cuts will mean California's Wine Institute budget will likely be cut by 1/3 (Wine Industry Insight's figure). Will quite possibly see fewer facts about harvests, and other us... Read More

  • Buena Vista Carneros Pinot Noir 2012

    Snoothrank:

    In the glass the wine is translucent and with a brownish tinge to it. On the tongue Im getting some cherry cough syrup that has been the rage with California PNs, these days. On the other hand, Ive had worsemuch worse. In all honesty, the sensation fades fairly quickly. Sturdier tannin that I see in most CA PNs. To me that makes it taste mo... Read More

  • Stephen, your original post at top of this thread brings up a number of interesting subjects and groupings.Your 1947 (oops, wrong century--see you're talking 100 years earlier) d'Yquem reminds me that I've always wanted to do a 1945/47 grouping of horizontals both for Bordeaux and Burgundy. Hopefully haven't missed the boat completely for all Bu... Read More

  • DM - We are familiar with the Pinot Noir in Burgundy, as we visited that area on a Viking River Cruise down the Rhone River back in 2015.  My web page documents the exciting times we had.  We do get plenty of Pinot Noir from Sonoma and Napa, along with Alexander and Anderson Valleys.  Duckhorn, Medlock Ames, even Barnett make Pinot Noir.  I don'...

  • The Marques de Riscal bottle is a comforting sight in many countries I've found myself. Always cheap but good, and fairly widely distributed. Restaurant or bar markups when ordering bottles usually don't hurt much, either. Won't have epiphanies but will be comforted by its reliability. Better than Heineken for beer in that regard, and much bette... Read More

  • Last night Matt Denny and I attended the Napa Grape Growers Association Annual Dinner at The Ranch Winery in St Helena. As wine events go is was kinda typical with a reception hour followed by introductions, Grower of the Year Award presentation and dinner. Just a bit more upscale than my Sonoma events. Wines poured by the glass during the recep... Read More
