I really do try to understand why some people rely so much on wine critics. As if one person’s taste could be the same as yours, and everyone else’s! Have you ever gone to see a movie that some critics loved, but you walked out, shaking your head, thinking: “Why did I just waste two hours watching that?” It’s the same with wine. I taste a wine that I think isn’t worth the bottle it’s in, and I find that some exalted writer has given it a high rating. Or, I’ll taste a wine that sells for $25 and know that it’s really worth about half that ... and, again, read a stellar review of it somewhere. How about the time that one well-known wine critic told everyone to mortgage the house, raid the saving account and buy, buy, buy as much of one newly released wine that they could get their hands on. Two days later, the wine maker recalled the wine, taking back and destroying every bottle. The wine had become infected with brettanomyces, a type of yeast infection, which made the wine smell like Read more »

  • I've recently met Israeli wines up close and personal -- and found the encounter delightful. Toured the Golan Heights Winery in July during an extended business stay in Israel. Very nice.

  • I have decided to learn about wines specifically because I was tired of going to restaurants and just picking "whatever everyone else picked". My brother, who had been a bartender for over 15 years told me to figure out what grape I liked and then sent me a video y John Cleese called "Wine for the Confused". :) After watching that video, I le...

  • I am new to Snooth, so I am about to try some of the recommended wines, but.....My wife and I taste different wines at various wines shops about once a month.

  • I've long wanted a go-to drink for when I'm at a bar and don't want a pint or a glass of wine. I also want a cocktail and not a basic mixed drink, so out the window with my staple G&T. To be honest I used to have one: Brandy Sour, but I'm finding it harder and harder to find places that will do it with egg whites. So, any suggestions as to what ... Read More

  • I can't find the ideal match though I haven't strayed from dry whites and reds yet. Correct me if I'm wrong but aged brie has a bit of that moldiness that almost reminds me of TCA. Who wants a wine that complements TCA? If wine did go with TCA then cork taint wouldn't be a fault! Anyway maybe I should venture into the sweeter realm since bluevei... Read More
