  • I have a big burgundy tasting on Sunday in Las Vegas, and have had to think about how to best stage and prepare some bottles for the tasting.First, the wines were both pulled from my storage about 6 days in advance and brought to my place. There, I have a few different options of where to put them.1. In my wine cooler, where its kept at a consta... Read More

  • So I've gone back into my Cellar Tracker tasting notes and found just a couple cab francs. I've had a few inexpensive Chinons, a couple from VA and NC, two rose of CF and the rest from CA. The French CFs seemed to be quite light with red cherry and cranberry dominating the flavor. The Napa CFs had more of a black cherry and rhubarb profile. This... Read More

  • It's interesting that a few new topics have popped up recently (Experiencing Cabernet Franc for one) and that my wife Sandra just today handed me an article by Dave McIntyre she cut out of a Washington Post newspaper dated 25 March 2015.  I'm starting this new topic based on this article "The wine cost four digits.  And the taste?" regarding the...

  • I've moved my post from another thread discussing problems with a Virginian cabernet franc. Thought it would be better to have a dedicated discussion here, rather than burying the discussion in that ongoing thread that covers quite different subjects.Here it is...  To get a better feel for the grape and what it can and should do, you guys should...

  • Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee. So on short notice I decided to let them all know I was coming to town, and luckily I got a good tip on an excellent restaurant near my hotel, Nico Osteria. Have ... Read More

  • 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

    From the article Summer Fall Transition Wines Under $20

  • There's a happy rumor (OK, it is more than a rumor.) that Myriad is going to release a 2014 Syrah from Halcon Vineyard grapes.  This sound pretty exciting to me.  I was introduced to Halcon here on Snooth and for the past few years I have been regularly ordering all their wines.  The opportunity to try another winemaker's interpretation of this ...

  • Nice pics. Regarding the temps, I think part of the problem is that your heading says "Wine storage temps" but only the first two points talk, about storage, the rest of them talk about serving temps. Not to nit-pick, but the first one is wrong, the second partly true but really, for long-term wine storage you want something south of 60 degrees ... Read More

  • Emark - what you describe is exactly what you would do when you present your wines to Robert Parker or another critic who doesn't taste blind. You open a half dozen or more at say, six, five, four, three, two hours before and taste to see which one is best and that's the one you show if you want to get the best score. Actually, you will have don... Read More
