Good Things on Snooth

  • A couple of things - You say you didn't notice for a week. Q#1 Does that mean it could have been unplugged for a longer period of time? Good wine fridges are insulated and meant to keep the cold air in, so as they warmed, it was probably gradual - sudden temp spikes for long periods of time cause more damage than slow elevations in temps. OT's s... Read More

  • Hi, Just had some insulation put in our walls and the installer unplugged our cooler!  We didn't notice it for about a week and that was during some hefty temps outside.  It probably got to 85 in the house for a couple days.   Had a bunch of 2012 anniversary wines in there being stores a 56 degrees.   Do you think a week of higher temps will eff...

  • Wine selection for the first half of the Presidential debate last night.  This winery closed in 2008 as the owner wanted to do other things in retirement.  I thought it tasted like a typical Virginia red wine, where I'm now used to better blends from places like RdV Vineyards.  Sandra liked this wine quite a bit due to it's complexity.Wondering ...

  • Sonoma Wine Country Weekend is an event filled with terrific wine and food from Sonoma County -- for a cause. Over two hundred wineries and sixty local chefs come together to raise funds for local non-profits in the environment, health, and literacy fields. Top chefs and winemakers band together to create a gustatory tour of what Sonoma County h... Read More

    From the article Put These Sonoma Wines on Your Radar

  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

    From the article Your Guide to Aged Wines

  • In truth, I have no idea what any of those things are, except perhaps acidity, and to me that just means "a sharp, sour taste."  I rarely drink whites, as they seem to have very little flavor.  Remember, without a nose, any taste is extremely bland.  My preference for the wines of Argentina and Chile was just the luck of the draw when I was gift...

  • As near as I can recall, I said something about having a particular fondness for Argentine Malbecs along with Chilean Carmineres and Cabs.  The problem I have is that I suffered a head injury about 30 years ago that took away a good bit of my olfactory sense, so many of the nuances of a fine wine are totally lost on me.  Reading a description of...

  • Okay, I have no idea how to do this.  I posted what I thought was an intro a week or two ago and I cannot find either my post or any of whatever replies there might have been.  Computers and the arcane rituals one has to perform in order to make sense of any of this crap are an absolute mystery to me.  I am a MENSA member so I know perfectly wel...

  • Speaking of a couple-of-a wines, Sandra and I poured wines again tonight at the weekly Wine in the Water Park event in Crystal City (Arlington, VA).  This time the weather was just about perfect and we had a good crowd too.  Funny how those two things go together.....After our four-hour shift ended, Sandra and I walked over to the Legal Seafood ...

  • However there was a Snooth offshoot for cocktails a few years back. Several of our regulars are cocktail drinkers, too.What kind of cocktails are you looking to make? I personally keep it pretty simple. Margaritas and a few other tropical type cocktails as well as things like negronis and bellinis in warmer weather. Martinis and a few others yea... Read More
