  • Max, you are new here, and are probably not fully aware of the circumstances behind my "good luck" wish to Jon Derry.So, let me fill you in, a bit.I am fairly well-known on the Snooth Forum as one of the people who does not particularly enjoy wine made from Pinot Noir grapes.  Jon Derry, on the other hand, is equally well-known for being passion...

  • Texas wines are comical. Had a thread or two several years ago where we discussed the options there. Some funkily interesting grape varieties that will blow a hole in Vino's 'Different' thread.  ;-(Niagara Bench has produced drinkable wines, all the above still undoubtedly true. Was thinking of the mountains west of Tokyo where they've been grow... Read More

  • Sandra and I were invited to attend a special wine tasting event in Washington DC tonight - called, "GEMS on the Road".  These were wine selections from twelve California wineries, with an emphasis on Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon varietals.  It wasn't cheap mind you as you could select as much as you wished to consume.  There were horderves...

  • "the southernmost extremes of Ontario are actually further south than Bordeaux"I love shit like this.  As if the only thing that mattered was latitude.  (Or soil, or mean daily temperature, or... take your pick.) Has this writer ever been to either place?  I haven't been to Bordeaux, but I know that area in Ontario and Western NY pretty well.  L... Read More

  • Here's the story by Vine Pair, which has made for some decent reads from my Facebook feed of late. Lots of interesting regions named here from China to Brazil to Texas. The other domestic region being North Virginia. Nearby, there's Baja and Canada.Tasmania and Croatia we've heard about for a while longer, and seem to have a bit more Cree than t... Read More

  • Hmmm.  Nobody's been here in over five hours.NBDAbout to grill some steaks, tonight.  I bought a couple bottles of this in, I believe, the Last Bottle Marathon a few months ago. I am not the most alert buyer.. When this one came up, the price was right, it was a winery of which I had heard, but had no familiarity.  I did not even notice the vine... Read More

  • You can buy 2015 California Cabernet if you look around, I'm sure.  Heck, maybe even 2016.  But the Italians make you wait a little longer--five years for Brunello, and four, more or less, for Barolo.  So that means the 2013 Barolos are starting to hit the market, and it's a highly anticipated vintage.  2014 suffered from hail, so it's going to ...

  • According to the Wine Institute, in 2015, eighty-three percent of wine from the United States was made from grapes grown in California. Clearly, the world wine stage has welcomed California bottles with opened arms. Wine lovers from around the world clamor for access to California wines. They journey to the state’s many celebrated regions with g... Read More

  • Burgundy on a Budget.  You get to write that column.  I have to say, $50-60 is not exactly budget in my world, but I drink wine every night.  If you bargain shop Chablis 1ers, which is pretty much all the Chardonnay I consume, you can get really good things for $25 or so.  It does have to be opportunistic. Looking at my CT, looks like my Burgund...

  • OT, I'm not saying you should come around.  Where you live, there are way more opportunities to buy excellent under-the-radar wines at fair prices.  While California may lack in great $15 bottles (and not always), I think the good Syrahs you have introduced many of us to make purchasing their N. Rhone competitors mostly superfluous.  When you ge... Read More
