  • I was recently challenged to find a wine that would match a delicate dessert and continue to drink well into those lazy, mellow moments that follow every memorable meal. There were several contenders but I went for Demi-Sec Champagne. Controversial I know but most Houses produce Demi-Sec including Moet et Chandon, Taittinger, Veuve Clicquot, Lan... Read More

  • DV, it sounds like their palates aren't ready for dry wines yet. If you are into sweeter wines at present perhaps you would enjoy a bubbly Prosecco or an off dry Chenin Blanc (Demi-Sec). For reds maybe a Bogle Zinfandel or Petite Sirah would fill the need.Welcome to the Snooth community! Read More

  • So me and my wife took a cruise a few months back. And ofcorse we wanted to try as many new things as possible. One of those things happened to be wine. Until then me being the typical 30 year old male I usually stuck to beer or whiskey things of that nature and my wife just didn't like to drink much at all. But oh the magic that happened on tha...

  • I mentioned this a while ago, but didn't get around to the post.  We stayed from September to end of December at a condominium in a complex built in the '70s. They've renovated and rebuilt since then (there were several major lawsuits for construction defects--built on fill!), but the architecture and the vibe is still very of that period. Our u...

  • Hey EMark, your Spätlese Riesling is a "Late Harvest" that is typically sweet but mot like a dessert wine. More like a Demi Sec Chenin Blanc. The elevated sugar level allows them to age nicely. The German wines go in this order Kabinett  - dry to semi-sweeet, reserve wineSpätlese - late harvest, 1 week later than normal, semi-sweetAuslese - sele...

  • Unless you bought them with aging potential in mind, a fair few of your 2013 pink and white wines won’t be drinkable by next spring. Guzzle down the last of those quick-to-turn bottles, cellar a few others, and ready yourself for the onset of fall wines. Even if you do not live in a starkly transitional climate, this a great time to think about ... Read More

  • Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event.  It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California.  Talk about getting out of the box.  For me this is tantamount to cross-dressing.  It started because Chester introduced me to the Kettle Valley "Hayman" reserve Pinot last year.  I really liked it, so when I found one (83 ca...

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • There are dozens of sparkling wines made around the world – Champagne (probably the most well-known) and another 20 or so similar wines made in France; Cava made in Spain; Portuguese Espumante; Spumante and four more Italian sparklers; Sekt made in Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic; Russian Sovetskoye Shampanskoye; Cap Classique from South...

  • Nothing goes with all foods. Maybe Grenache/Syrah. Chenin Blanc goes well with food, The label will have the denotation Sec or Demi-Sec in the wine name. Sec may mean dry but the allowable sugar in Sec wine makes that meaning a nonstarter for me. There are also many dry wines that give the perception of sweetness so don't narrow your views too m...
