Good Grapes on Snooth

  • Over the past ten years I’ve watched as Carmenere from Chile has hit the wine scene in a big way. The grape returned from assumed extinction in 1994 – that’s a fairly recent date, especially in wine years. For decades it was believed that Carmenere from Chile was a unique strain of Merlot. Once its true identity was revealed by DNA testing the g... Read More

  • A few months ago, I was minding my own business, mostly, when I received a phone call from my good friends here at Snooth, wondering if I would be interested in heading to Bordeaux for a few days and write a story about my experiences. The trip would focus solely on sweet wines from the region, or what wine types frequently refer to as “dessert ... Read More

  • Hey D - I like your number 5 above.  I know Vincent and he makes some excellent wine.  And is a super nice guy to boot.If you can find his wine, try it.  I think you will really enjoy it.  His approach to wine making is all about letting the grapes and vineyard character show in the wine.  He gets grapes from some excellent vineyards.  I especia...

  • According to a YouGov poll, forty-one percent of Americans enjoy wine with Thanksgiving dinner. It's no wonder we spend so much time planning our drink menus. Turkey Day wines have been discussed on Snooth at length over the past ten years. Tastes have evolved to include more than just the mainstays. Traditions have been shattered, and most meal...

  • Boy, I leave guys unattended for a little while and you get all testy with each other. ;-)Re: Wild Boar - Wineries don’t sell grapes, vineyards do.  No wine label ever lists a winery name as a source of fruit. No AVA or vineyard source listed on the bottle because the target market would not be moved by such. They don’t grow good Pinot Noir in N... Read More

  • Also looking good was this earlier circular from Chambers Street. Oregon this time. Keep scanning down the list, Cameron makes good juice at several levels.    Linus the dog, barrels aging in the cellar, and Tom Sivilli and John Paul bottling the 2016 Rosé. Linus the dog is a ruffian purple heeler (cross of a blue and red heeler), and the protog... Read More

  • The golden wines of Bordeaux are a sweet force with which to be reckoned. While Sweet Bordeaux white wines are revered for quality they’ve been pigeonholed as “dessert wines”. This is beginning to change. I do not mean to imply that these wines are completely unsuitable for dessert. It would be folly to make the suggestion. What I wish to illumi... Read More

  • And even pinot noir, some that's fairly interesting. And a lot cheaper than Burgundy...Al, the Loire, and each of its grapes, deserves its/their own threads. I take it the effort to chase down any more cheap-but-good PN is kaput.... Read More

  • Have you been to Burgundy before? Lyon deserves a day or more (far more) for its fantastic food markets and restaurants. After that I'd focus on one area rather than try to cover the whole region. Duncan's suggestions are good.Do you want to see the established, famous and pricier areas (the Cote d'Or, or communes in the Cote de Beaune and Cote ... Read More
