  • I've actually started looking at points again, esp Parker for some wines.  Take Syrah, for example.  If Parker likes a Syrah,  especially from Santa Barbara, I feel pretty sure it's a gloopy mess that I want nothing to do with.  If it's a Syrah from the Rhone, it's been treated to a lot of oak...  In fact, I think that Parker has done more harm ...

  • Hi Nelson,My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Portugal in the fall of 2013, including 5 days in the Douro Valley. In the Douro, we stayed at the Aquapuro Douro Hotel.  Of all the wine regions we have visited, I believe the Douro is the most spectacular.  The vineyards rising up from the river were breathtaking.  When looking at them from close range ...

  • Of course we've tried them. For years I didn't care much for the reds as many of them tended to be both green and over-ripe at the same time. The whites were OK and sometimes quite good. And wines that were not from the Cab family, like say, Syrah, were tolerable.Even those at the $100 US range weren't all that great. For the most part I agree w... Read More

  • DM - I didn't even notice that rubbed out "t" on the chalkboard, but it's pretty funny now that you pointed it out.  I did not touch it at all.GT - Thanks for the clarification on the barrels.  I really have learned much in this wine forum.  I'm very happy to have brought humor to the forum too.  You guys are laughing at some of my posts, right?...

  • Tonight I attended our second tasting of Chilean wines at the Crystal City Wine Shop in Crystal City, Virginia.  This was a special tasting of wines from the Botalcura Winery in Santiago, Chile - special because the Winemaker Philippe Dubrus was there to introduce the wines.  That's me in a selfie with him below.  This winery has been featured b...

  • Tonight we're drinking this really nice Muscadet (Melon de Bourgogne) with some baked haddock and roasted broccoli.So here's my 999th wine review on Snooth: Excellent Muscadet, the back label says these grapes come from 18 acres of vines that average over 50 yrs of age in Gras Moutons. Light yellow in color, there's a bit of aroma of lemon pith ... Read More

  • BP Wine is a great source for hard to find (and ultra expensive) wine.  Check out their inventory of Cabernet Sauvignon from the US.  I find their offers more entertaining then practical, for me.  I have bought a few things from them in the past.  Two bottles of 96 Mondavi Cab and a 1993 Quilceda Creek and all were in excellent condition.

  • OT, how do you place Insignia or Dominus or Mayacamas or Heitz Martha's or others from Napa's storied past? I was a bit surprised to see Montelena in the list below. Do we want to track specific winemakers and consultants?   So here're excerpts from the Wikipedia page on cult wines. Are these the definitions we want? Cult wines are those for whi... Read More

  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee. So on short notice I decided to let them all know I was coming to town, and luckily I got a good tip on an excellent restaurant near my hotel, Nico Osteria. Have ... Read More
