Good Grapes on Snooth

  • So, we were at Costco a few weeks ago and, surprise, stumbled into the wine section.  Several bottles found their way into the cart, when Peggy picked up an Oregon Riesling.  That is a bit unusual for her, but I also saw a German example.  We read what we could on the back labels and the shelf talkers.  The Oregon one was described as "dry" and ...

  • Had heard good things about an organically farmed (only 4-5 hectares just outside the Côte d'Or boundary) champagne producer, Ruppert-Leroy, a while back, and I got a good impression from the Blanc de Blancs bottle I've tried of theirs. They also make a Blanc de Noirs, and another that may be a combination.In looking them up recently, I noticed ... Read More

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

  • They've had a hell of a time with it in Burgundy, like a 50-90% lost vintage. Unsure on quality, but it's dubious.What's going on in Napa/Sonoma? I hear Halcon Alturas is a ways away from ripening, but the harvest of whites has been in full effect. When should the Cabernet, and other reds be "ready"?Let's pick now (or soon) I say!Floods and fros... Read More

  • Hi, I'm Bruce.  I'm a UC Davis graduate of enology (26 years ago..alas) and have recently joined Snooth.  I was a former winemaker and enologist at two wineries on Long Island during the 1990s and am now semi-retired in Sarasota, FL.I'm still working in the wine trade, part-time in retail, but otherwise retired.  I'm still active in wine and eno...

  • North of Taos, NM on the Colorado state line. Elevation 7,800 ft. Being in the Rocky mountains, the spring frosts and short growing seasons knock out most perennial fruit efforts each year. Grapes have secondary and tertiary buds that help overcome this if they get hit. Because of our good sunshine, we get to mature a crop. I am not so sure abou... Read More

  • Last week I reported that I tried the 2013 Lyeth Meritage on our Thursday evening Hollywood Bowl picnic.  Over the weekend we were at Trader Joe's and, so, I picked up a couple more bottles.  Tonight, I am going to try another bottle to see if my previous positive opinion was tainted by our good spirits, that night. Last week I mentioned that I ...

  • "You think that by being a locavore you are also being a tree hugger?  Think again: Almost all the European wines are grown on land that has been vineyard forever.  Clearcutting is a Cali thing.  Sure, the latest outrage occurred in Paso, but you've got a forest-killer right in your backyard. (The winemaker in question sounds a lot like a certai... Read More

  • August is here -- along with warm, steamy weather for most of the country. For some that means switching over to chilled cocktails or beer. What it should really mean for wine drinkers is carefully selecting wines that are well made, delicious, value driven and refreshing. The last thing anyone wants to sip in hot weather is a big, bloated and p... Read More

  • I run the wine courses at one of the UK’s leading culinary academies and recently let slip to the chefs that I’d matched a herb crusted trout recipe with Soave in a recent magazine article. Their pan faces and deafening silence said it all! To be honest, I wasn’t surprised as this dry Italian doesn’t have a very good image on English wine shelve... Read More
