  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • They've had a hell of a time with it in Burgundy, like a 50-90% lost vintage. Unsure on quality, but it's dubious.What's going on in Napa/Sonoma? I hear Halcon Alturas is a ways away from ripening, but the harvest of whites has been in full effect. When should the Cabernet, and other reds be "ready"?Let's pick now (or soon) I say!Floods and fros... Read More

  • Wine myths are often unspoken but incredibly pervasive. Their looming presence may prevent wine novices from feeling confident about how they drink. Most would agree that wine experiences are best enjoyed with friends, but myths can hinder otherwise joyous wine drinking occasions. “Sparkling wine MUST be enjoyed in a flute glass, or else!” “Wine...

  • The Jeff Hill story is something, isn't it?  InVino has been selling the wine via their flash site/email list, and I've seen it at the discounter.  You can't sell it in Europe at all (I think the article explains it) and, after reading all that, why would you trust that what's in the bottle is anything but Central Valley bulk juice of who knows ...

  • Lassen was pretty covered in snow and clouds kept hitting the tops of it, so I presume it got more.  Temps in the morning at 4500 feet were 40-ish, days got warmer, but as you went up the difference was noticeable.  There wasn't much more than patchy stuff in the passes at 5000+, but that was near the roads and with presumably less shade cover t...

  • This morning I was pontificating in the coffee shop about wine bottle labeling.  My buddy, being the the ex-lawyer type, asked a lawyer question.  Who monitors this stuff?I then realized that I had never heard of anybody (OK, I'm talking domestically, here.) being accused of say:Labeling a bottle as "Cabernet Sauvignon" and, then, being caught f...

  • To press or not to press? That is NOT the question. Rarely does anything in winemaking have an absolute however pressing is one of the few. Grapes must be pressed at some point in the process to release the juice or wine. However, even though grapes must eventually be pressed, it is the when, how and how much that are open to interpretation. Wha... Read More

  • As per your OP's title, JD, next a look at CA. From the Wine Institute:"Chardonnay, with 95,000 acres, is the wine type variety with the most acreage planted in California."Cabernet Sauvignon was the second most planted winegrape in California with 76,800 total acres."The red wine category for the second year in recent history edged out white wi...

  • Trying to recall a conversation we had a little while ago on this subject.Whats the most widely planted (acreage) and produced (bottles) red grape in CA, U.S., and worldwide?I seem to recall a Snooth article mentioning Grenache as the most widely planted red grape worldwide, but that was some years ago. I'm assuming it's Chardonnay for white? Read More

  • One of our charming new posters, cysurvivor, was fishing for recommendations here for a visit over MLK weekend.  Since we're all pretty free with our half-baked ideas and opinions, we had plenty of ideas for him, didn't we?  Since Mauritson kept showing up on the list, it looked like it would make the final cut, so I went on private messaging an...
