|Winery:||Colle Dei Bardellini|
|Region:||Italy » Liguria » Riviera Ligure Di Ponente|
A touch rubbery on the nose, with a classic hint of pencil eraser that I associate with Pigato. Hints of herbs, and slightly smoked fruits, lemons and pineapple add some complexity to the nose. In the mouth, there is an earthy minerality under rather r...
|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...
|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 ...
|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:||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...
|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:||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. ...
|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:||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....
|Winery:||Knee Deep Wines|
|Region:||Australia » Western Australia|
|Varietal:||Chardonnay , Chenin Blanc , Sauvignon 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.

A visit to Terrabianca Terrabianca is a medium sized winery in the heart of the Chianti region, in Radda, located just north of Sienna. It is owned by a German, Roberto Guldener, who now lives in Chianti, and who has strong historical ties to Italy. He also lists himself as the viticulturalist. The winemaker is Vittorio Fiore, a well-known and h... Read More
This year I got the opportunity to participate in a winery employee project. Me and a few of other employees at Loxton Cellars got half a ton of Syrah grapes to make our own wine from. Well do all the work and well make all the decisions. What does this have to do with Gundlach Bundschu? Well, it means that I am in Sonoma more often and not ... Read More
In my recent "Introducing myself" (see Fullbottle) I inadvertently (well, not really) mentioned my love for the sparkling shiraz (fomerly sparkling burgundy but we are not allowed to call them that any more) that we in Australia can produce so well. Mainly made from shiraz, but with a few from merlot, malbec and chambercin, these wines go throug... Read More
I was messing around on Domaine547, somehow stumbled onto Snooth, and dove right in. Long time beer/cocktail drinker, but wine manages to slip in now and then. Just wanted to say hi to everyone, but instead of the usual "hi I'm new/welcome newbie" thread, I thought any repliers should also toss in their favorite red wine, and maybe a little tidb...

My first foray into this sort of discussion group, but my love of the Bucchanalian pleasures in life and the quality of this site have moved me. I am Australian (Sydney), and rate myself as an enthusiastic amateur in winetasting and experience - still learning and enjoying new discoveries after 20+ years. My experience is mostly with Oz wine, wi... Read More
From another thread:GregT: " Oh it makes my ears bleed. I need to go and drink a bottle of Sang de Cailloux"Dmcker: "So what's the 'terroir' for the blood of stones? Great naming for a domaine. Too bad you can't really get away with that type of name in English. Guess we have to suffice with 'Big House' or 'Suckfizzle' or '10 Minutes by Tractor'... Read More
Would be interested in hearing from people here about any redwine and fish, crustacean, mollusk, etc. combinations they/you have found to work successfully. Having been initiated at the beginning of my wine tippling into the traditional white-for-fish, red-for-meat school of thought, I've since found that several reds and roses can work just fin...

If this Black Label Reserve were a 1940s pin-up queen, it would be likened to the grace and sheer beauty of none other than Bettie Page. A blend of four classic Bordeaux varietals, she's sure to delight and fill your glass with her voluptuous nature.The Black Label Reserve is the ultimate Washington wine experience. Blended from wine made from t... Read More
Hi Snoothers,I am from Amsterdam, Netherlands and have recently become intensely fascinated by wine. Did a wine course during the spring and have taken the advice of my teacher (make good wine mileage) very seriously.French and German wines have been my primary "study objects" thus far, but I am adding new regions / countries to the mix continuo...

Expectations and experience tend to soften excitement in wine, muffling the high pitch of greatness to meager moans. It can be difficult to savor the high highs once a sensory resume has been established, just as the anticipatory thrill of perfection can carve the pleasure from the stem like a critical mass. As oddly as it sounds, the Quilceda C... Read More
