  • Gabriele Rausse Winery Chardonnay Reserve 2015

    Snoothrank:

    25% new oak. More structure than the basic Chardonnay, but has just a little faint vanilla on the nose and is a little bland on the palate. I prefer the acidity and flavor of the steel-barrel non-Reserve Chardonnay. Read More

  • The Sunset magazine that arrived today had a (very) short article on some relatively modestly-priced domestic wines.  In that article was a breakdown of one producer's cost for a bottle Pinot Noir.  The producer is Alit.  I am unfamiliar with this winery, but it looks like they are in Oregon.20.6% -- Price of the fruit. 7.8% -- Labor--winery sta...

  • As the world’s winemakers look to single vineyard wines to mark them out from the crowd, a trip through southern Spain with the Grandes Pagos de Espana took one-up-manship to a different level. Grab your passport and join me on this whistle stop tour.The Grandes Pagos de Espana are an association of top Spanish single wine estates, “equivalent t... Read More

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.When you find a nice wine tha...

  • Domaine Begude l'Etoile 2007

This appellation was created in 2003 for still red and white wines from 40 communes around the small town of that name some 15 miles south of Carcasonne in the foothills of the Pyrenees. This area has a lon... Read More

  • Last day in wine country (actually yesterday). Well this is it for this trip as far as being in the vineyards goes, might as well go out big. Started the day quite proper with a morning excursion to Iron Horse and their sampling of bubbles.  We've made this a must do since ever since our first pre-noon foray back in 2010.  Absolutely nothing as ...

  • Sorry but I didn't get any shots of the Bedrock wines.This Ramey was tasty. Lots of citrus, nice acidity, not real crisp. The Mondavi took a little bit to unwind and was still evolving when the last taste was poured. 2003 has been touted as a poor Napa vintage and this is yet anotger example that people just need to be patient with some years. I... Read More
