  • 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. A blend of 67% Sauvignon Blanc and ... Read More

  • 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...

    Snoothrank:

    Raspberry jam rises out of the glass and coats your mouth with strong enough tannins to keep things from turning sweet. Read More

  • Breaux Vineyards Nebbiolo Loudoun County 2005

    Snoothrank:

    One of the most interesting reds I've had, particularly since Italian varietals are unusual in Virginia. Very pale in color -- almost a burnt tangerine, rather than a red. Incredible leathery taste and feel -- quite the balance between smoothness and grip. If you're ever lucky enough to taste this vintage out of their library, you won't be disap... Read More

  • Gadino Cellars Rosé Blend Rappahannock County Moonrise NV

    Snoothrank:

    A very cool wine! 52% Nebbiolo rose, 31% Cab Franc and 17% Petit Manseng -- the red, white and rose all living in harmony. Drinks like an Italian rosato thanks to the structure from the Nebbiolo and Cab Franc, but the Petit Manseng keeps it light and aromatic at the same time. Read More
