  • I'm picking up here where I last left off, halfway through reporting on mostly the 2009 vintage in Barolo. As you can see here, and in my previous report on these wines, the vintage is a bit irregular to say the least with some powerful, structured wines being produced as well as many wines that show elevated alcohols or aggressive tannins. As I... Read More

  • I wrote yesterday about the 2009 vintage in Barolo and today I begin reporting on the wines tasted. with over 30 winery visits o the region last month there's a lot of wine to report on. I've included my notes below, broken down by visit in roughly chronological order. As you can see not everyone was able to present the 2009 Barolo for each of t... Read More

  • With summer upon us the consumption of Sauvignon Blanc is about to explode! Of the four giants of the wine world, which includes Cabernet, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, no wine is as seasonal as little old Sauvy. It’s light, crisp character just screams ‘drink me this summer’, and with so many other options appearing on retailers s... 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

  • Saw this story about Antonio Galloni leaving the Wine Advocate.  (I first saw it somewhere else, but this was the easiest one to link to today.)  I haven't got any particular sense of what Galloni likes, although one kind of assumes that Parker would hire someone somewhat in his own image if he was planning to turn over some of the areas Bob has...

  • Being a cab lover I am hesitant to stray from what I like. On a recent occasion I had the opportunity to try a Zinfandel and to my amazement, it had some of the same attributes of the cabernets I love so well. I perused Snooth and stopped on a particular zin from Bogle vineyards. Gregory Dal Piaz gave it a nice rating and being a member of Snoot... Read More

  • There is not much new information one can write about Theobaldo Cappellano, a sometimes divisive winemaker with whom I was once fortunate to spend the better part of the afternoon discussing winemaking, viticulture, land use, morality and invention. To say that my visit was unusual is perhaps an understatement, though I’m guessing it was only un... Read More

  • Got access to an old collection of wines this month and trying many  bottles that have survived extremely well in a perfectly dark, still and damp cellar in England. Many unmoved for 10-20 years. I am drinking the worst condition bottle in each group.1990 Ralphs Shiraz. Made by Penfolds a Coonawarra 100% Shiraz in honour or Oddbins UK then catal... Read More

  • Hi All,I've been a sideline observer of Snooth for a couple years and thought I'd join the party.  I'm a huge Central Coast fan, unfortunately located in Pittsburgh, PA.  I've made a few tasting trips out west and another is planned for April.  If you're planning a trip to Paso Robles, Santa Barbara, or anywhere in between, feel free to shoot me...
