Across the River
According to the wine maker's notes. This Pinot comes off the Wyeast Vineyard, a south-facing, high elevation vineyard in the Hood River Valley. I'm saving my money for a vertical of this region, specifically the Wyeast Pinot Noir. 13.5% alcohol and if...

This smells quite leesy on the nose with tree bark and sweet acacia notes over green plum and piercingly floral tones. This rolls across the palate with vibrant acids and a lovely ripeness which adds roundness but not huge volume. The fruit shows hints...

90 points. This wine smells completely like a coffee shop. It’s got tons of fresh ground coffee beans, vanilla, chocolate, and caramel, and cinnamon aromas going on. There is also a core of cherry preserves, a little brown butter, and a toasty quality...

So I have arrived safe and sound from my grand adventure to the west! I traveled from my home in Michigan to Missouri, then across the Oregon Trail (in general terms) to Pendleton, Oregon and Walla Walla, Washington, home to some of the most wonderful...

Hi! I've been quite busy with travel for work so I've been off the radar a bit. I unexpectedly had a few days free so I took a last minute trip to Portland for a few days - I'm there now. Tomorrow we were planning on driving out of town to do some wine tasting, etc....probably McMinnville. I was too busy and tired to really make any plans for th... Read More
27th July 2013, Ormond Hall, St Kilda RdIt is well-evident that there is no shortage of Rhone-inspired wines in Australia. We certainly have vineyards which bask in similar weather conditions as the Rhone Valley. One could argue that a key missing element would be the round river rocks atop the clay soils which retain heat to intensify the summ... 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
Last year I was lucky to have suffered from an excess of riches, but my travel schedule pushed reporting on many events to the bottom of my pile. I'm only now catching up with all of my notes, so while these notes are delayed, they certainly warrant publication. Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon is considered one of the blue chip Napa Valley ... Read More
An interesting article --http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/01/dining/kevin-pogue-seeks-washington-states-top-terroir.htmlI've yet to try any wines from Walla Walla -- simply not available here -- but keep reading about them. It's on my to-do list for if I ever visit the US. But it's particularly interesting to see they're taking terroir more seriou... Read More
Help!Ok, ok...there's no crisis here in Dallas. However, I do have quandary. I just haven't developed an affinity for varietal New World pinot noir and I'm wondering what I'm missing. I'm looking for suggestions from you Snoothers.Keep in mind that I live in the Great (or Not So Great) State of Texas, where it's considerably more difficult to ac... Read More
Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More
There's an argument to be made for Riesling, and it's made on a regular basis. It goes something like this: Riesling is great, it's flexible and it's food friendly, with wines ranging from dry to syrupy sweet, so there's something for everyone to like. This has been the argument of the day for years now. Trouble is Riesling still finds resistanc... Read More
Elsewhere you can read about the offline I attended with OT and GdP and a bunch of winemakers, winelovers, and the like. But on the way there, I think I solved a major problem with California wine; over conversation with GdP and an assistant winemaker from Napa, my belief was confirmed.I read in an obituary of Aldo Conterno that he had come to ...
