  • It is a true image, I’ll concede, but that’s not all they drink up north. The Scandinavian cuisine has been hauled as the next big thing by the likes of Ferran Adrià of El Bulli, and sommeliers of top Nordic restaurants now put all their viking prowess to the task of exploring wines which match. This may be where you find the driver in the next ... Read More

  • This is, probably, not the most compelling wine issue of the day, but it has long bothered me that restaurants might offer wines by the glass or wines by the bottle, but very rarely do they offer wines by the half-bottle.  To me half-bottles offer elegant solutions to two different dining scenarios:I’m dining alone.  I definitely want wine with ...

  • Was fortunate enough to attend a very well put together Amarone dinner in LA last night put on by a friend I met at a tasting last year. For those who don’t know, Amarone is a wine produced in Veneto, Italy, from mostly Corvina grapes along with 20-40% Rondinella and 5-25% Molinara. What makes these wines unique is that the grapes are basically ... Read More

  • I'm concluding our two week look at Pinot Noir for Snooth's Global Tasting Initiative with a round up of my favorite wines. You might be surprised that I'm collecting a list of previously reviewed wines, but I need to let you in on a little secret: even wines that get great reviews and scores may not be to my or your liking!Yes, it's true.

  • Vincent Arroyo Petite Sirah 2002

    Snoothrank:

    This is my kind of wine--big and firm. Beautiful inky dark color. Nose forcasts tannins to come. First sip verifies tannin, but fills the mouth with flavor--most notably black pepper.

  • (Ha ha just realized it sounds like my wine is going on Spring Break in a nasty bikini or something....)Anyway, I found tucked in the back of my wine fridge a fairly nice ($40?) bottle of white wine that I had totally forgotten about, from 2007.  Because I remember loving it, I'd like to share it with friends who've invited us to a nice dinner a...
