Well, this is a first! Having a wine blog I routinely place photos of the wines I try on the blog, and then maybe 3-4 times a year I post the reviews to Snooth, just to share with other fans (I guess I have enough to do to actually write the reviews a...

<p><b>2001 Blackford Cabernet Sauvignon</b><i> - USA, California, Napa Valley (1/12/2007)</i><br>GREAT NOSE! Sweet cassis, blueberry, a little tobacco, and maybe a little Szechuan pepper. Taste (immediately after opening) is cherry, tobacco, rosehips -...
|Winery:||Sine Qua Non|
|Region:||USA » California|
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...

Today we are faced with an ever expanding selection of wine we might know little about: Red Blends. We know little about them because it’s sometimes hard to know what’s in one. They are in some respects unfortunate victims of their own success. Their proliferation makes them hard to define, and sometimes hard to compare. Though there is however ... Read More
So I am sneaking away to Sonoma for a few days. I have spent tons of time up in RRV and Sebastopol, and I think I want to revisit the lower valley this time- Kenwood, Glen Ellen... I would love recommendations for wineries, hotels, motels, vac. rentals, and restaurants. Sonoma proper would be ok to stay, as is close to those areas. Plan on h... Read More

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?

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
