The Wine Spies Say: Mission Codename: From where do great wines come? Operative: Agent White Objective: Place Lancaster Estate under surveillance to determine whether great wine comes from the soil, the grapes, the people… or all three Mission Stat...
Today, I am enjoying my grill along with a bottle of 2009 Chateau de la Taille Bordeaux, another bottle from that super vintage (at least as it's been billed) from France. Now don't get me wrong, the experts who tasted from barrels are probably righ...

My wife and I are hosting a German dinner in about a month. She has the easy part, coming up with the menu and delivering on her fine cooking. Wienerschnitzel and Spatzle are the main course, with probable sides of grean beans and such. My part is to come up with matching beverages. The beer is easy. I'll find something good in a small keg ... Read More
California, and especially the Bay Area, has a long, glorious history of family-run wineries. There's a lot of history laying around the region but with so much growth over the past few years, it's gotten harder and harder to find the people who helped develop the area, and continue to have that intimate connection with the land that can transfo...

So, I'm new here in the Snooth office and put together my first "Weekly Wine News Roundup" this week (it will get better over time - especially with the help of the community).I've taken @dmcker's advice and started a topic about fast food wine pairings (Zagat had an interesting article about this topic that I featured in the Roundup). Anyone h... Read More
What are the "must-have-wines" when you visit a wine bar? Or just stuff you'd really like to see. This can become tricky with "by-the-glass" stuff, because I imagine people can become quite cautious with a glass of wine above the $12 figure. Any insights?? Read More

Ok, so I'm outwardly pimping something here but it's for what I feel to be a good reason. Moreover: a set of good reasons. Especially if you live on the Atlantic Coast and have a hankering for fresh air as well as a fresh experience that won't cost you your rapidly diminishing 401k to enjoy.1) South River Restaurant (link to have a look should...

I've just returned from the International Malbec Days in Cahors, a festival meant to elevate the profile of "original" Malbec, and offer insight into the relationship between old world and new world expressions of the varietal.I'll be writing more about both the trip and the region, but for now, I wanted to offer highlights. I had limited exposu... Read More
I'm curious: Do you order half bottles in restaurants, or ever purchase them for home consumption? I've started to notice them cropping up more frequently in my area (a wine bar just opened in my neighborhood that boasts a half-bottle option for nearly every wine on their list) -- and yet I always feel the urge to either order by the glass, or c...

What's the worst wine you have ever had? I had some Don Luciano Shiraz over the weekend (which is a $4.00 wine I picked up at Wal-Mart...just to see). I had had the Don Luciano Chardonnay and it was OK, but the Shiraz I had smelled like road kill (very heavy sulfur)--I wonder if I got a bad bottle. Has anyone else tried it? Read More
