Pinot Noir / $19 Wilamette Valley / Oregon A good friend just returned from Portland, and picked up some Oregon Pinot Noir for us to try. We tasted three wines, all in the $20 range. Only one stood out, and for the $20 price tag, Willamette Valley ...

Got this at a "take a chance" sale at a local liquor store for $3. I scored on this one. velvety nose with a little earth and chocolate. Good fruit on the palate. Dangerously smooth wine with a nice grip on the long finish. For $3 a bottle I shoul...

A little hot on the nose at first but after letting it stand for 20 minutes in the glass it shows an earthy, leathery nose with a touch gaminess. Very smooth on the palate with nice acidity and a good amount of tannin. Tempranillo shines through with...

Some black cherry, pepper, a little earthy on the nose. A little light on the palate at first but opens up with a little time to breathe. Some notes of cherry come through on the palate again, but this is not a fruit forward wine. There's just enoug...

Chimney Rock has always been known for great Cabs, and this one is great as well. HOWEVER... I went to Napa and bought this 2001 library vintage and ALSO bought ZD Vineyard's 2001 Estate Cab. I paid ~$20 less for the ZD. Both were bought untasted, s...

Deep ruby in the glass. Nice bright berry on the nose--smells delicious! Dark cherry and stone fruit, with a little raisin then on to a nice oakiness. Ends on a fruity note. Very drinkable tempranillo, have had $20 wines not as good as this! Running...

Picked this up at Stone Face Package Liquors Store. Nice little number. Opens with perfume, spice, and vanilla. More viscous mouth feel, almost like diluted honey. Long finish of golden raisin, pepper, and vanilla. I think a bit better than the Taylor ...

I know this is a very popular wine. I see it at every wine store, and I read about it in one of Snooth's newsletters. The aroma is ripe, fruity, and tangy. The flavor is full and complex, with a tangy, jammy taste over a slightly bitter tannic under...

I really love this wine, and I love the price even more. This was a staple until the 04 vintage ran out at my local wine store. There are plenty of flavor descriptions here for the 04, so I'll just say that I had great luck with this vintage, not jus...

And a little night cap back at the hotel bar. Have thought South Africa deserves more exploration, and is much better represented on store shelves over here in Amsterdam.Very decent Sauv Blanc, thoughbI hope to make the next stop at Dagenau. Read More
As millennials come of age and begin exploring wine as a passion and a pastime, they are causing a tectonic shift in the wine business. The fundamentals of the business have been tacitly accepted by wine drinkers for decades -- the same varietals and regions have been favored vintage after vintage. Traditionally preferred grapes and regions are ... Read More
There's really nothing affordable on the Peninsula any more these days. I grew up in SF/San Bruno/San Mateo/Belmont before the tech boom and it was pretty laid back. I am so glad I don't live there any longer. Open spaces are all but paved over, those little cottage homes are now McMansions, population explosion, traffic, commercialism, it makes... Read More
Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year. With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year. And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win... Read More
Hello all,I'm not actually a beginner in wine preparation. I started preparing wine 3 months ago. I've tasted different varieties of wine and my favorite is Merlot wine. I had a doubt earlier on how to store the prepared wine. I searched many sources and asked many friends and I happened to read an article yesterday which had tips to properly s... Read More
Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

You guys know that I'm always one to push the limits. In fact, I like to grab life by the pu##y.....er....let me rephrase that....I like to enjoy pairing wine with politics and things of this nature. Anyone who knows me might not realize I am better with wine/event pairings than with wine/food pairings. So, with that being said, I need to pai... Read More
