|Winery:||Plymouth Gin Distillery|

Carménère is an old grape variety from the Gironde. DNA analysis suggests that it’s a cross between Cabernet Franc and Gros Cabernet (which is itself a distant relative of Cabernet Franc). Fortunately for our collective palates, when it comes to wine grape parentage, breeding with a relative can be a very good thing. Carménère is a highly refine... Read More
We talked a lot about sparkling wine last week but there is a lot more to cover. The biggest sparkling wine day of the year, New Year's Eve, is right around the corner. Opening a bottle of sparkling wine can be a a dangerous proposition. There's a lot of pressure under that cork! But if you like living on the edge, there's always sabrage. When t... Read More

In the spirit of paying it forward, I have now made a gift of a tasting for the second time. First was for an on again, off again member of the boards, now for a colleague. It makes me more thankful to my benefactor, because I would not have had the pleasure of sharing myself if I hadn't found out about SMV from him. I'll probably head up ther... Read More
It has become clear that wine drinkers are demanding varietal wines beyond the strongholds we've seen on shelves and menus for decades. Let's face it; there was a palate gap in the United States' most commonly consumed varietals. That gap has been bridged by Garnacha.

He was among the first to harness Livermore’s unique geographical orientation and terroir for quality grape growing and winemaking. The region and its gravely soils run from east to west; an exceptional position that draws bay breezes and fog in a direc... Read More
Hi. I was recently going through my pictures from Germany along the Rhine in 2000. I drank an awesome red wine there from the Mosel area. This wine tasted almost like fruit juice and was the best I had ever tasted. I don't remember the name and have been unable to find any wine that matched the flavor of that wine. Any suggestions as to where I ... Read More

Took the day off Friday--my seniority means lots of vacation, my house project means I took very little of it this year. Wife and I headed up to Spring Mountain Vineyards, courtesy a most-excellent Snooth-friend, who made us a gift of one of his annual visits and tastings--as a member of their wine club, he receives several and he was unable to...
