Napa; Sonoma on Snooth

  • The Fourrier didn't have a bunch of air, it was popped open maybe a half hour before we ate. This is the most approachable one I've had young. For me that's a plus as I am a cork popper for the most part.Greg, the Ultramarine was Pinot Noir Rosé sparkler not a sparkling Zin but the Under The Wire was. We had the UTW at my Syrah offline beside th... Read More

  • Any more bottles of the '93 Williams Selyem Cohn lying around in your neighborhood, Brian? Condition of that bottle looks pristine, too, as far as we can see it, anyway.And how many times have we seen comments on these boards (and on others) about PN not lasting past a decade...?The Fourrier GC VV may have been open breathing longer in OT's case...

  • Have always dismissed Evening Land as generic, throw-away kind of stuff. Glad to see your note confirm.Had the Fourrier a few months back as some might recall, and Dave chided me for drinking too early. Think you may have liked it better than I did, but it sounds like you tasted it after some plonk so that will always flatter the wine. Anyhow, t... Read More

  • Cool OT, but I would have brought some back-up. Too many unpredictables. Interesting about that Steltzner though - I thought they owned their own vineyards? Do they sell to Ovid? I actually have a few from the 1980s and your opinion is the same as one of my friends - he thinks they lack fruit too. I bought him a case back in the early 1990s and ... Read More

  • Fun evening tonight with friends, some old some new, great food and some stellar and others not so stellar wines. I even ventured outside Sonoma just for you Al.Started with bubbles.Bubbles done right. This was a very enjoyable starter. New ultra-hip label. Left me kind of torn. The Gimonnet was in a different league. This reminded me of the Und... Read More

  • The cork was horrible. The wine should have been spoiled but it was not. In fact it is very good. My wife who is more critical than I am also pronounced it excellent. My question to the experts is why?No expert here but why should the wine have been spoiled?1995 is an excellent year for Napa/Sonoma and those wines should be quite fine today, pro... Read More

  • Even though Al is not a New Yorker, he does seem to have this, I'll call it an East Coast Perception, that all of California is the same.  ;-)I should also add the homily that I hear at least once every time I visit Sonoma.  Sorry Napans.  It's just funny.    "Napa is for auto parts.  Sonoma is for wine." No worries, Jon.  Your bottle is still i...

  • St Francis is in Sonoma not Napa.So is Bedrock and the Kamen Vineyard where this wonderful Cab Sauv comes from. Infanticide is my specialty. Opened it last night and have a half bottle left for today. Loaded with goodness, anxiously awaiting a taste with some O2 behind it. Read More

  • Mark, from my Cali experiences I have formulated the following impression: in Napa people wear diamond studs on their jeans, in Sonoma it's dirt and grape stains. Read More

  • They should wait for the next big earthquake and see which parts fall off into the Pacific.  Then a vote could be put forth for how to divide up what remains (hopefully Napa and Sonoma).  :-) Read More
