Lafayette's Wines on Snooth
ESOL, I've got some Clio I'm looking to drink soon. You're not very far away if you have an interest. It's regularly available at Wine Thieves in Lafayette, I recall. I'd also look at the Mataro from 3Wines, Matt Cline's heritage vineyard brand. Prices are good if you buy through WineAccess (and WineThieves, which carries many of his bottles... Read More
HI everone. New to Snooth here, but would love some recommendations. Not so much on the varietals- but specific wines/vintages if you have any favorites to share.I crave the darkest, inkiest wines that you can only drink with good friends (or alone haha) because your mouth turns purple. I tend to prefer dark fruits over red, full body, fruit for... Read More
Thanks for the invites, but can't make it. Wish I could.Still stand by my *weak* categorization. US prices for French wines are as good as in France in many cases, even if specific winemakers may be difficult to access. If it were me, I'd want a stronger, broader reference point than you guys seem to care about. Think of them as Lafayette, rathe... Read More
OT, if you like the fruit, 3Wines (Matt Cline) bottles Evangelho at a great price. Check out WineAccess.com and get on the list--they have the best price on it unless you live near Wine Thieves in Berkeley and Lafayette.

It took about 20 milliseconds to convince Peggy that this was a good idea. I did have to take care of one issue at the bank. (In fact, the bank visit was totally unsuccessful and that is... Read More

There hasn't been one of these threads here in quite some time so I thought I'd start it up again. Weather is warm here so I popped a Rosé.What are you drinking? Read More
After today and last weekend, I wanted to discuss the pricing of various wine events- which ones are worth it, and which- not so much. Here are some of the priciest I have attended: Taste of Sonoma: $100-150 depending on your discount; Treasure Island Wine Festival $55; Rhone Rangers SF, ~$100. Many folks I know think this is a high price p... Read More

Last week the U.S. Department of Agriculture awarded a $3.9 million grant to develop a mechanical sprayer. The chemicals used in vineyards have become so toxic that they are considered a health hazard for humans. In other words, the government is trying to find a way to make spraying highly toxic chemicals on grapes more convenient. And we haven... Read More
