Mt. Etna is located in northeastern Sicily in the province of Catania. Viticulture on the lower slopes of Mt. Etna dates back millennia. We live, however, in an age where we want to know what you have done for me lately. That’s good news for Etna’s DOC wines. Winemaking on Europe’s most active volcano is hot, both literally and figuratively. Etn... Read More
No mystery I love Syrah and got turned onto it some years ago by a N. Rhone that I had at a restaurant in Sonoma. But here it goes again, latest estimates for the auction price at HartDavisHart:1983 Côte Rôtie, Côte Brune, Cuvée Reservée, Marius Gentaz-Dervieux (12 bs) $15000-22000Now I grant you that's not exactly DRC or Latour level pricing ...

The 2013 vintage was harrowing for Burgundy. With mostly poor weather mounting worry along the Côte d’Or during the last four vintages, it’s not just the vines that are feeling stress. But after painstaking work in the vineyard, winemakers have provided superior pleasure in the glass. Read on and you will understand. WeatherPrecipitation was tw... Read More
I've been trying wines from different Beaujolais regions and have yet to find one that I love. Here are the ones I've tried with disappointing results:Clos de la Roilette Fleurie '13Fessy Regnie Chateau des Reyssiers '11Duboeuf Beaujolais-Villages '11Beaujolais NouveauWith all these wines, the problem is that the wines don't have the vibrant red...

A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC. ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More
2010 Jemrose Cardiac Cuvée - Vinified by Michael Brown of KB and Cirq, Blended by Russell Bevan. Cardiac Hill fruit, Syrah, Grenache and Viognier for $15? Got the email from Jemrose earlier today. Can't believe there is still some left. Read More
In getting together with some LA and OC wine folks yesterday, I brought along this 1961 Oddero Barolo to the party that also featured a '66 Lafite, and a '66 Haut Brion, among others. I had sourced this Barolo just last week as something to throw at the pair of old 1st growth wolves, and spice things up. Sitting here this morning, I can easily c... Read More
I love N. Rhone Syrah. It's my favorite red wine in France. But the acreage of the region is so small and the area that provide its best wines even smaller, that prices have hit the roof. Sure, there are a few St. Josephs and Crozes-Hermitages that come in around $25, but those are either made for earlier drinking and a lot less thrilling wit... Read More
Liver what? It’s that great wine region you’ve never heard of. Less than an hour from San Francisco. A growing wine scene based on a century and a half of history. Great climate, friendly people, tasting rooms that are not filled to capacity with people you don’t want to be rubbing shoulders with. You know, one of those regions that is truly up ... Read More
This is always one of the most difficult things I have to do each year. Sit down and try to figure out who will Snooth’s Winery of the year be?I'm never going to please everybody, or most of the people even, but I try and select someone, or some winery that does two things. The first is to produce wines that I really like. Ha! Sorry about that ... Read More
