Savory Grape the
Opens with, though not overly unpleasant - wet cloth, then grape, both of which quickly disappear and on with the bright jelly-ish fruit, fudge, cinnamon, and vanilla. Swirl it around and get more cinnamon and minerality. More savory than fruity, with ...

The 2008 Hahn Meritage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (42%), Malbec (22%), Petit Verdot (22%), Cabernet Franc (10%) and Merlot (4%). Now those of you who know me, know that I am not in any way a fan of Malbec, despite it's surge in popularity over t...

This is very perfumed on the nose with a hugely fruity core that is slightly foxy and spicy with wild grape note over a bed of sandy soil and dried herbs. Rich in the mouth and somewhat soft at first, this really comes alive with lovely fruit full of m...

Smells really Cabernet like recalling Napa cabernets of the 1970s. It’s a little smokey, blackcurrant and black cherry toned on the nose with a fine base of savory herbs, tobacco, tea, and old wood nuance. Big, round, soft tannins lend this a lovely ...

Nicely floral on the nose with streaks of blue fruit, a whiff of smoke and some ash and tart black currant fruit rounding out the aromas. Round fresh and zesty in the mouth, this shows nice depth on the palate and is almost rustic in an attractive way ...

|Region:||Spain » Rioja|
Picked this one up from Jubilation; A sniff and it opens with butterscotch, toffee, and condensed milk, quickly goes to plum, raspberry, cinnamon, vanilla, and grape jam. Opens further with more savory and herbal notes. A silky mouthful with a medium ...

There’s nothing quite like having wine friends. After all, our mutual topic of interest is a social lubricant. But there’s so much more to it, as Snooth’s recent blogger trip will attest. Earlier this month we had the opportunity to explore one of the country’s oldest and up-and-coming wine regions: Lodi, California. It still amazes me that a si... Read More
Wine is not the first pairing that comes to mind when you’re talking about Brazilian cuisine. Coffee, fruit drinks, cachaça, and beer are all more traditional and have longer histories with the food. Portugal has a long history of wine production, but the first settlers in the 1500s found the northern regions near the equator too hot and too wet... Read More
"When the moon hits your eye/like a big pizza pie/that's amore."As we ate our breakfast on Sunday morning at the Imperial Hotel in Amador City, the soundtrack subtly changed. Last night at dinner and halfway through breakfast, the soundtrack was from the same era, but Sam Cooke sent us, and Ray Charles warned us about women. This morning, with... Read More
Rioja remains one of the very last bastions of value when it comes to traditionally styled wines. However, it offers consumers considerably more than that: it affords consumers the chance to purchase aged wines that are ready to drink at prices that make them undeniable bargains. But today that is not what I want to talk about. I’m still going t... Read More
This time of the year is the celebration of the Jewish Holiday of Passover. Passover is really about the Exodus of the Jews from Egypt. Moses had asked Pharaoh to allow the Jewish people to leave Egypt. He refused. After each refusal, God visited a series of increasingly serious plagues on the Egyptian people, culminating in the slaying of the f... Read More
I’m part Irish, but I’m not sure how much. I’m not Catholic and my surname is decidedly English. But the family tree has branches throughout the British Isles and I sit here today with blond hair, a red beard, freckles, and the inability to get a tan. On top of that, my grandmother plays about a dozen instruments and has often gone to Ireland to... Read More
About eight years ago, I rented this house on Stinson Beach for a week from this wine writer. He left us a bottle of Bell Cab, which started me on my Bell fixation. I read one of his books while we were there and he said of PS, "It survives. Whether it improves is another question." Or words to that effect. PS has so much tannin it might jus... Read More
One French varietal is working its way to the front of the pack after spending many years in the rear ranks of Washington's wine armada, according to a story this past week by Washington-based newspaper The Bellingham Herald. “Rhone varietals have certainly found their niche among Washington wineries and wine enthusiasts,” Herald reporter Dan Ra...

The middle of February has long been a time to celebrate love. The ancient Greeks and Romans held festivals to honor fertility and marriage. The fourteenth century English poet Geoffrey Chaucer wrote of love birds choosing their mate on St. Valentine’s Day. During the same period in France, King Charles VI issued a charter directing members of h... Read More
