  • Interesting story--what was the thread you were viewing before? And how'd it go with the fresh-caught bass? Not at all surprised that even NV champers is fine at that length of time. What were the major flavors you detected?I notice you have NVs from two different bottlings there. If anything I think their wine might have been better back then, ... Read More

  • Hi All,Thanks for welcoming me to your discussion group (great and fun site). I found snooth because I was trying to read up on aging champagne and I happened on an interesting and informative thread.

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options.

For years however, those in the know have been whispering the name of another producer who belongs among the top ec... Read More

  • Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

  • Columbia Valley, Columbia Gorge, and Walla Walla Valley: a triumvirate of outstanding wine producing regions with a fascinating twist. While there are numerous ways in which these three areas are vastly different from each other, they have one key similarity. Their acreage spans across both Washington and Oregon states.
