Wowzer,Just tasted my first Viognier and what a delight. I purchased one that was extremely economical but one with respectability in it's ratings. I didn't want to go overboard on my first venture with a newbie.This one averaged 3 and a half out of 5 here at Snooth. I'm sure it's well known, it's called McManis Family Vineyards out of Ripon Cal... Read More
I remember that video. He did a good job.But as to clearance - as a New Yorker, I don't want to pay full retail, ever. You always ask for a deal. It's what you do. People have made fortunes clearing out inventory of various products, including clothes, electronics, household goods, etc. In the Village there's a store that specializes in picking ... Read More
I'm of the mind that decanting is a good thing. Especially with aged wines. I've decanted young wines anywhere from an hour to up to seven hours just to see how the structure would differ. And I've done the side-by-side comparisons to justify my insanity. However, I do realize, as in with stemware, that this may be an extremely subjective topic.... Read More

We talked a lot about sparkling wine last week but there is a lot more to cover. The biggest sparkling wine day of the year, New Year's Eve, is right around the corner.

Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More
