Hits some high, floral notes off the nose. Dominating palate, with a lush, silky mouthfeel, explosive red and dark fruits, but then finishing seemlessly, with precision and maybe even a bit of magic this wine has big and flavorful fruit combined with e...

Recently touring the Franciscan Winery in Napa Valley our host was an excellent spokesman for wine, the restaurant business and the pairing of food with wine. At one point in his conversation he spoke of smelling three quadrants of the wine glass to pick up different aromas. Now after a few glasses of their finest, I cannot remember exactly what...

Skeptical I recently visited the Napa Valley for the first time in about three years. Like many wine geeks, I’m jaded when it comes to Napa Valley wines, almost programed to dismiss them based on their success. You see, to be a true wine geek has somehow morphed into cultivating an exclusive appreciation of obscure wines. Orange wines? Bring the... Read More

Having toured around Argentina and Chile tasting wines, my partner and I head up to San Fransisco to tour the US West Coast in March.Does anyone here have a recommendation for one day circuits we could do? We probably have 2 days for California wines, and have been recom... Read More
My wife had some carry over vacation from last year that she needed to use up so we decided to head back to Paso Robles for a couple of days.Scanning our tasting notes from 2008 there was a predominance of zinfandel and syrah in the tasting rooms. Fast forward to 2013 and we are tasting almost exclusively Rhone blends (reds and whites). We d... Read More
I absolutely love wine. Snooth is one of the reasons I love the mystique of wine because it offers me a forum to discuss wine and all of it's nuances, it's history, it's wonder, it's character, it's beauty. I work very hard at my profession even though I have scaled it down to 3 days per week. After my work I love good food and love to imbibe i... Read More
On Saturday morning, while I was having my coffee and bagel, it occurred to me that it would be fun to drive up to the Central Coast and visit some wineries. It took about 20 milliseconds to convince Peggy that this was a good idea. I did have to take care of one issue at the bank. (In fact, the bank visit was totally unsuccessful and that is... Read More
Following a Wall Street Journal article yesterday, wine sites and blogs are exploding with news that Robert Parker has sold a substantial share of The Wine Advocate to a group of young investors in Singapore. The "game-changing" publication will see some major changes. Do you think these changes will be a good thing or do they risk losing subsc... Read More

“This dish returns to our Wallsé menu each Spring and stays until the early summer season. Cherries and Fava beans peak during this time of year and these classic Austrian ingredients are unexpectedly combined with lobster and Béarnairse to give a fresh and fruity seasonal dish with hints of Austria. This unique pairing is a great example of che... Read More
