There are a lot of great wine values out there, if you know where - and how - to find them. Unfortunately, there's even more wine that's not so great - and at all sorts of prices. Our first duty is to ensure that none of the lesser stuff gets near our shelves-or yours! For every bottle that makes it into the store, at least ten get the boot. To make the cut, a wine has to have easy-to-love fruit, beautiful balance, and taste delicious right out of the bottle. Anything less won't do. Our shelf talkers are meant to provide you with realworld information you can use to make better, more enjoyable wine purchases. Yes, you'll learn what's in a given bottle of wine, but you'll also read about serving tips, food pairing suggestions and other things that will help you enjoy your wine even more. And, if you're still stumped about what to buy, you can confidently ask us for help, because we regularly taste our wines. Let us help you find the right wine - whatever the occasion, reason, or season. We realize Read more »

  • So you want to get geeky? The Jura’s hot today, and so is Sherry, but if you want to get geeky without fleeing the mainstream how about Greek wines? The geek in you can be satisfied by the Limnio, Agiorgitiko, Mavrotragano and Xinomavro yet your friends and family won’t be completely freaked out by the wines themselves. It’s time to generalize f... Read More

  • Barbera, when you ask most people their initial reaction to the name might yield blank stares, or worse. While Barbera is capable of producing some impressive wines it is also all too capable of producing pretty bad wines, both with capable winemaking and without. The problem lies with Barbera’s incredibly high natural acidity, and the issues th... Read More

  • Last week I wrote up some reviews on “value priced” Pinot Noir, and I received a few comments asking if it was worth spending a few more dollars on wines costing a bit more. It was a fair question, and one I myself had explored just a week or two early when I compared “value priced” Sauvignon Blancs with wines costing just a few dollars more. Th... Read More

  • OK, bear with me for a second. These wines may not be amazing in your THIS GOT 90PTS AND IT'S ONLY $8!!! kind of way, but they are great values and are a wonderful opportunity to add some amazement into your life. Not in this is a great Sauvignon Blanc kind of way but rather in a WOW! WHAT IS THIS? kind of way! Now I'm a pretty savvy guy when it... Read More

  • Recently I was pleasantly surprised by a visit to Lodi, California. Long the source of well-priced, consumer friendly wines, not to mention the boost they give many of our favorite national brands, Lodi continues to work mostly off the center stage of wine in the USA. There are many reasons for this of course, from consumer preferences to the gr... Read More

  • I was recently transferred to an office in Fremont, CA, which is like a prison sentence in my work, so how do I entertain myself?  I scout out new wine stores.  And, thanks to Yelp, I found this really cool market that specializes in all things Portugese. It's no secret I love Spanish wine, and my experience with Portugese so far has been that i... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Iberian wine discovery!

  • Funny thread. I was visiting Mom this past weekend, moving her actually, and since nobody was around, I actually tried some PN and bought it at retail no less. Eh. It was fine for what I wanted, but if people want complex wine, they really have to drink a lot more wine from different varieties.  Americans think there are only five or six worth d... Read More

  • Pinot has been a much celebrated topic here on Snooth over the years I've participated, and it's obviously one of the more celebrated grapes in the wine world. It'll no doubt be a story line I plan on focusing on in years to come so I thought I'd start a thread, logging experiences. Sorry in advance, Greg T.Having said that, I've been mostly dis...

  • Hello:A bit of a long question, I apologize. I'm trying to train my palate and learn blind tasting by assembling groups of 100% varietal wines that are (supposedly) true representative.Right now I want to assemble a group of wines that will illustrate how to differentiate Argentine Malbec from Carmenere, and pick out similar wines. I don't even ... Read More

  • Wine is so confusing! I love a good Pinot Blanc, or Pinot Bianco. But what do I love when it's not necessarily a Pinot Blanc? Let me explain. Alsace is unique in France, having created its appellation system by varietal instead of region.  Except when they haven't. Alsace Pinot Gris is Pinot Gris, Alsace Riesling is Riesling. But when it comes t... Read More
