  • Wrights Station Winery Reserve Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountains 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A great Chardonnay from a new winery. Dan Lokteff has perfected Chardonnay. A slightly oaked citrus chard, touch of hazel, refreshing, you'll want to fill your canteen up with it before a long hike... Read More

  • Oh, crap, I posted on the doozy thing on your other thread.It rained in Santa Cruz today, about ten big drops my kids say.  I am betting we just have overcast here.  If I'm wrong, I'll be paying a big price, since my skylight has been open for literally months and I'm not closing it now. And, yeah, wrong thread, but tonight I drank a 2004 Poggio...

I aim to have this winery up and running by harvest 2015. I have made great progress already and will devote much ... Read More

  • My father had an expression:  Centrally located and convenient to nothing.  Referred to working in Wichita, KS, but was used at other times.  That was, I think, the point that JD made earlier.  Carmel was on the table at one point, but there's some sense in doing it closer to an airport if folks like to travel that way.  That said, anyone who wa...

  • OT is our boots on the ground up there in Sonoma, but I've been watching GdP's reports and keeping an eye on the weather and it looks pretty ideal.  According to Clay Mauritson, Zin's perfect temperature for growing and ripening is right around 86 F.  And that's been where the weather has stayed, outside that insane heatspike at the end of June/...

  • Back at ya, Kim.Thank you for the excellent list.  The good news is that I live in a large metropolitan area.  So, it is possible that I might be able to find some of the labels that you have suggested. As it turns out, you caught me in a mistatement.  (I'm old.  I forget.)  I have had another South African wine, and it was a Pinotage from Neil ...

I should've also mentioned the Santa Cruz mountains in the OP, and probably other areas in OR.OT, Mark and I picked up some Cabot Anderson Valley last week, couldn't pass it up @ $23.99 retail. After popping one last night, it's no doubt good stuff and I'll probably get m... Read More

  • Thomas Fogarty Chardonnay Santa Cruz Mountain 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Lightly smoky on the nose in a restrained style, tight, smells lightly floral with mineral earth notes and hints of Asian pear. Focused in the mouth and much leaner and crisper than expected. This is downright snappy and very clear on the palate with a growing sweetness of ripe fruit on the backend. Theres a little hint of ripe pineapple and ni... Read More

  • Chaucer's Olallieberry Wine NV

    Snoothrank:

    Oh Ya! It's like blackberry candy. Made 100% fruit. Perfect summer spritzer with club soda & twist of lemon. Also delish over vanilla ice cream. Unfortunately, Bargetto no longer makes this... boohoo Read More
