  • I love N. Rhone Syrah.  It's my favorite red wine in France.  But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof.  Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit...

  • The Argentinian Patagonia, comprising the provinces of Neuquen, Rio Negro, Chubut, Santa Cruz and Tierra del Fuego, is a land of stark contrasts. Both soils and climates. From the arid desert of Northern Patagonia, by the central steppe, the Andes Mountains, to the hot and humid southern climate. While Argentina is renowned worldwide for wines o... Read More

  • Well you should probably look for more general Malbec.  A couple of things to keep in mind - surprisingly a lot of it is organic or at least pesticide-free. Why is that? Because where they have to use sprays and chemicals are places like Burgundy and Bordeaux where it rains a lot and the weather isn't all that great. Most Malbec in the US and Ca... Read More

  • Bit of a wet cold spell sweeping through Melbourne at the moment, so what better than a curry night at a friend’s place (no washingup, hey score!). Might as well make a decent tasting out of this before our tastebuds get obliterated by lamb vindaloo.Vasse Felix Classic Dry White 2012, Margaret River, WAAUD$16.

  • OT, that's actually perfect.  I was going to suggest to you that your bring two each from RRV and Sonoma Coast. (I was snooping through your inventory to figure out how to extract the best stuff from you and had already decided that you were good for 4 bottles... you saved me some tough decisions. I'll probably go ahead and have NG (assuming she... Read More

  • Welcome to the Snooth Forum, DBrooks.  I saw your other posting, but I'll respond to this one.  From what you've written above on your likes and dislikes, I might conclude that you like some sugar in your wine.  One wine that I might suggest to expand your horizons a bit is a Vouvray from France.  The Vouvray region is in the Loire Valley and th...

  • 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 ...

  • Hi all,Of course we're going to talk about Argentine pinot! Most of the good stuff comes from the northern reaches of Patagonia, in the provinces of Neuquen and Rio Negro.  There's a huge difference between the wine traditions of the two provinces, however.Neuquen's government started promoting the wine industry in the area of San Patricio del C...
