Napa; Sonoma on Snooth

  • I am nearing three quarters of a century on this planet. I live in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains of north Georgia, in a gated community called Big Canoe. We're about seventy miles north of Atlanta. We DO have some fair vineyards in the area- not Napa or Sonoma yet, but improving yearly.I belonged to a wine tasting group here in Big ... Read More

  • Of course, Greg, Sonoma has some of the best New World PNs. Think I was sounding klaxons for The True here half a dozen years ago. Just proportionately so much dross, still, in that county and Napa, as well as further south. Oregon has its own issues, but also some good PN. I've lusted after the rare-perfected CA pinot for decades, and only had ... Read More

  • D - Chardonnay with lobster is perfect. I guess they suggested PN because that PN was probably pretty sweet? BTW - there is some PN, even from Sonoma, that is not like cola. I've even had a drinkable one from Oregon. It's just that whenever I drink something like that, I wonder how much better a Syrah would be from the same vineyard. But next mo... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Bespoke Wine Tour Napa/Sonoma

Like someone else to handle the logistics2.) Visit "off the beaten path" wineries; small, high quality producers.  Not really... Read More

  • RBA, that shellfish platter looks amazing.  You would have had to roll me away after that. And one more thing - EMark, it's a screwcap!Yup, v v, that would have moved that wine way up on my list of favorites.  No corkscrew fiascoes (fiaschi?) with that one.The Mt. Eden designation really confused me on that wine, though.  I thought Mount Eden wa... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Weekend Wines


  •  there’s a reason why nobody ever tried to pull out these old vines. The fruit they produce is just too good.That is certainly true, but credit also has to be given to the fact that White Zinfandel became the rage thirty-something years ago, thus, saving thousands of acres of Zinfandel from being replanted to Merlot or Chardonnay.  Thank you, Su...

  • JD - You might notice I picked up a few bottles of the CA Roederer sparkling wines yesterday - posted in my Weekday Wines topic.EM - So that oil spill is looking worse and worse.  I would go visit Ridge Monte Bello if I were in the area.  In fact, I would even head up to Sonoma or Napa....first stopping in San Francisco to taste the cuisine.
