|Region:||USA » California » Napa|
Classic aromatics of peppery, briary spice and smoke that help to add definition to the wild blackberry fruit tones. In the mouth this sneakily gives the impression of being rather modestly scaled though it's bursting with pure, ripe fruit. the balance...
80% young vine Bricco Boschis, the rest comes from vineyards that are outside bricco boschis, since they don't make a base Barolo it all goes in here. Traditionally made with 18 months of aging, in more simple vintages maybe 15 Nice nose, a bit earth...

|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Sonoma Coast|
Now as a complete novice to white wines, I can only say what I've heard in the past, particularly that Chardonnay may be a more popular wine, perhaps a bit overdone, but heck I'll try anything once! The wine itself has lovely aromas of green grass, am...
|Region:||USA » California » El Dorado County|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Franc , Gamay|
This California take on a classic Loire Valley red is a very welcome surprise with only 13% alcohol and fresh, anise-inflected red cherry fruit. A vibrant, sassy, and feminine wine that uses subtlety to get noticed. Bebame means "drink me" in Spanish! ...
|Region:||Ukraine » Crimea|
|Varietal:||Muscat Blanc À Petits Grains|
The White and Pink Muscats of Massandra are their classic wines and are considered by many to be the best Muscats in the world. Golden brown in color with intense flavors. Bright, hard and sugared fruit in center with a thin finish which is tight bu...
|Winery:||Castello di Volpaia|
|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Toscana Igt|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon , Sangiovese|
One-third Cabernet Sauvignon, two thirds Sangiovese di Volpaia, a clone from the property. This offers up the classic scents of these Sangiovese/Cab blends yet even at this relatively high percentage of Cabernet it does not dominate the nose. There are...
|Winery:||Knee Deep Wines|
|Region:||Australia » Western Australia|
|Varietal:||Chardonnay , Chenin Blanc|
The perfect summer drink! Beautiful with seafood and out in the sunshine! We match it here with our seared abrolhos island scallops with curry salt, sweet corn veloute, creme fraiche and popped corn.
|Winery:||Mike Weir Estate Winery|
|Region:||Canada » Ontario » Niagara Peninsula » Niagara Peninsula Vqa|
Rich in colour and taste, this wine is perfectly crafted for palates who adore the classic toasty, buttery Chardonnay taste, with enough crisp acidity to cater to those who dislike overdone Chards. Although lacking its own unique character, this charmi...
|Winery:||Dry Creek Vineyard|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Dry Creek Valley|
(Review of December 2009.) Superlative Napa Cabernet whose rich fruit and approachable texture make it delicious now, but whose beautiful balance and structure and grip suggest it will be good for years to come. Lots going on in this wine, from the de...
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Pomerol|
I found this one currently at K & L wines for $29.99 Tight out of the bottle, nose of red fruits, spice, oak, with good acidity and tannins. After decanting for 2+ hours this wine really opened up, and started to show off its class and elegance. It ...

This is a great moment to marvel at the sheer beauty of Italy’s unfathomably old vines in combination with volcanic soils: February is Italian Wine Appreciation Month on Snooth! The Etruscans and Greeks began planting vines in Italy around 2 BCE, and the native grapes have adapted extraordinarily well to changing soils over the past several thou... Read More
Early in my exploration of wine, I settled on Brunello Di Montalcino as one of my favorites, and eventually as my single favorite. Since then, I’ve been asked many times, “Why this wine? What’s so special about Brunello?” Some have wondered why I would have embraced a wine that they view as “big” and masculine, since people new to wine tend tow... Read More
Quite the polarizing wine there Al. It's one of those you like it or you hate it wines. If you enjoy over the top wines with sweetness and loads if oak this is a winner, if you like traditional Napa Cab you pour it out. I was at the Ceritas Open House last weekend talking with a few wine geek friends and the subject of the Caymus 40th breached. ... Read More
Texas is not known to be a particularly forward wine state. We have only allowed wine to be shipped from out of state to private addresses in the last couple of years. The laws are written such that if hard liquor is served, a restaurant cannot allow you to bring in your own wines. Since wine is a huge contributor to a restaurant's profits, m... Read More

Sauvignon Blanc will always keep you guessing. On the one hand it is capable of making a wine that can boast ethereal grace and complexity, yet on the other it can be raw, green and aggressively unbalanced. It is a simple case of the have’s and the have not’s: Those that have the right soil (poor), the right climate (cool) and the passion (low y... Read More
I once spent 48 hours making a sauce from scratch. It was a classic Sauce Robert that started with a tray full of bones and vegetables. The compound sauce required demi-glace, the rich reduction of beefy goodness that takes a lot of time and effort, and I was determined to use no pre-made ingredients. At the end, gallons of liquid and pounds of ... Read More
A news outlet from Vermont's Lake Champlain Valley region in Vermont is reporting that ice wine harvests, were completed earlier this week by Shelburne Vineyards, one of several ice-wine producing wineries in the area. “Generally the harvest takes place in December but this year they were harvested on January 6, the latest it has ever been for t...

It's never a bad idea to have a favorite wine bar up your sleeve. Earlier this fall, Thrillist, mavens of all things male, released their list of the 21 best wine bars in the United States. California led the way with six nominations, while Portland, Chicago and New York had two nominations each. “Fifty years ago if you'd asked for a glass of Ma... Read More
