|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Sonoma Coast|
one of the most amazing, complex, interesting wines I've had in a long time. maybe too full in weight for fans of classic pinot, but I loved it....
|Region:||USA » California » Napa County » Oakville|
In many ways a classic Napa Cab. If you don't like big wines, probably look elsewhere, forgetting about it for a couple of years also could help as well. Impressive Napa Cab, seems like it would be priced at more then $50 if it came with a different ...
|Winery:||David Coffaro Vineyard & Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Dry Creek Valley|
(Review of Dec. 2006.) I'm ashamed to say this is the first bottle I've tried of David Coffaro Zinfandel. It is outstanding, reminding me of some of the best Ridge Lytton Springs Zins from the past - but at a cost at least $10 lower than those wines. ...
|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
The 2006 Grimaldi Luigino Vigna San Biagio Barolo is of a more subtle style than other Barolos, so if you prefer more powerful, in your face wines, this one is probably not for you. The wine is lighter in color, with the classic brownish almondine tin...
|Winery:||Produttori del Barbaresco|
|Region:||Italy » Piemonte » Barbaresco|
The Produttori Moccagatta was classic in every way, and having tasted it blind, was easily confused for being a Barolo. The nose started out muted, but with a short time in the glass, a bouquet of dried cherry, potpourri, menthol and dark, dark chocola...
|Winery:||Fields Family Vineyards & Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » San Joaquin County » Lodi|
The wine is a lovely bright ruby color in the glass with nice clarity. The nose is classic Syrah, with a good bit of pepper, violet and that classic twang of tart cherry and fresh herbs. The taste is really quite nice, with a blast of tart cherry up ...
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Saint-Julien|
|Varietal:||Cabernet Sauvignon , Sauvignon|
I underestimated this wine young, as it continues to put on weight and character. In fact, of the great vintages of Leoville-Las Cases, this is one of the more forward wines, largely because of the seamlessness of the 1990 and its exceptionally sweet ...
|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:||Long Shadows Vintners|
|Region:||USA » Oregon » Columbia Valley|
A product of Long Shadows Winery in Walla Walla, this wine is a blend of excess wines used in their signature wine blends from nine winemakers, hence "Nine Hats." The wine itself is a blend of 54% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, ...
|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...

Vintage and era definitely matter more when you start to question in what decade to drink...11 years for most classic European 2004's, if our small data sample plus from what I hear about Burgs and other regions is any indication. At any rate, now would be a good time to check in on that first, second, or third bottle if you have a case.Heavywei... Read More
Secret Santa 2015 was a success! We eventually figured out who the senders and recipients were based on past drinking habits and assorted sleuthing. Some bottles were consumed quickly but others are in storage awaiting the right moment to enjoy them. Thanks to everyone for participating. Final pairings are listed below:JONDERRY - received bo...

“Scruffy” is no longer an adjective reserved for dogs or bears. According to Grub Street contributor Adam Platt, the word also applies to a new wave of wine bars in NYC. “All sorts of stodgy institutions have been upended during the course of the great post-millennial dining revolution,” Platt wrote, “and now, it seems, it’s the wine bar’s tur...

Today being Saturday we wanted to go out for a bit before relaxing in front of the TV tonight to watch college football of all things. Gone are the days we might have been out on a Saturday night, except for the special performances that Sandra loves to attend. We still tend to get out on Fridays though, like those Wine in the Water Park event... Read More
The Great White North is home to great ice wines, true. But that observation is lagging behind the times as Canada's wine industry is flexing is sipper sinew and producing wines of many varietals which are catching the attention of international critics. This past Friday, the Montreal Gazette featured a story by contributor Bill Zacharkiw, a wi... Read More
There's a happy rumor (OK, it is more than a rumor.) that Myriad is going to release a 2014 Syrah from Halcon Vineyard grapes. This sound pretty exciting to me. I was introduced to Halcon here on Snooth and for the past few years I have been regularly ordering all their wines. The opportunity to try another winemaker's interpretation of this ... Read More
We feel that if a geographic area has shown wine excellence throughout a long history, then even more sublime heights can be reached with the addition of a dose of passion and attention. Campania was the breadbasket of Ancient Rome. Fruits, nuts, grains, seafood, meats, olive oil – authors from Virgil to Pliny to Columella agreed that if those i... Read More
The wine is a lovely bright ruby color in the glass with nice clarity. The nose is classic Syrah, with a good bit of pepper, violet and that classic twang of tart cherry and fresh herbs. The taste is really quite nice, with a blast of tart cherry up front that quickly subsides to some rich, jammy flavors of blackberry and plum midpalate that j... Read More
Orange wine is something I feel I have read about more often than I have seen it in the past few years. It is definitely not on every wine list I encounter nor is it taking up a lot of shelf space in the places where I buy wine. When the opportunity for a taste has arisen usually as a temporary novelty on a wine bar list, I am always eager to tr... Read More
Quick note: We're now staying at our first house sit, officially have our permit today for the renovation/addition. So last night we fired up the grill at our current digs (gas, alas), put on some Prather Ranch burgers, topped them with bleu cheese and grilled figs from our tree. (We are close by so we harvest every other day.) Man, was that ... Read More
