Open this bottle during a recent virtual tasting here on Snooth. Quite a different experience enjoying a wine and being able to talk to the head wine maker about the vintage and the climate and their thought process. Very informative and enjoyable. Sli...

This bottle was part of a lot I bought on www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/42890.I bid on this because I had previously had the 2004 vintage which I thought superb.In the 1950's 16 wines of Graves were classified as grand cru as a marketing exercise and this included Chateau Bouscaut both red and white.In 1987,however,the northern part of what...

Our friend, Outthere, has made us aware of the Historic Vineyard Society, and I, personally, have enjoyed reading about his experiences with the society, and his interactions with some of the producers who source from these vineyards. Yesterday, Mrs. Emark handed me an article entitled "The Battle for America's Oldest Vines" that she had clippe... Read More
I write this in the middle of a trip to California, the primary purpose of which was to taste Zinfandel. You see I love Zinfandel, think it’s the country’s greatest wine in fact. There is more diversity with Zin, plantedas it is basically throughout the state, than any other wine. Not only is it planted throughout the state but it hasin fact fou... Read More
Back in July, I proposed a West Coast Pinot Noir throwdown on the Snooth forums. In what was a pot-luck twist on one of Gregory dal Piaz’s “Drink My Wine” events, I suggested that any Snooth forum posters could congregate in my neck of the woods—Oakland, California—and bring a bottle of their favorite Pinot Noir from whatever region they think ...

It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy. This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More
I’ve already written up my thoughts on some white wines tasted while in Portugal this past summer. I wanted to get that information out in front of you while it was still most pertinent, hot, and sunny. Now as we transition to Autumn I want to give you the rundown on the red wines I enjoyed while in Portugal, wines that are well suited to the co... Read More
I’ve already written up the Grenache based wines I tasted during my time in Santa Barbara, they can be found here: Grenache - The Next Pinot Noir? so today I am focusing on most of the remaining wines that I tasted while in the region. I’ll save the few Pinots I Tasted for a Pinot round-up, which might surprise some folks. You see I went to San... Read More
We had a plan, get in early, get out early. It seems like a lot of people had the get in early plan. In years past we would show up around 11:15, park close and hit the tent before the crowd built. Well not this year. The front parking lot filled up as we approached so we parked across the road and hoofed it in. The place was a zoo from the mom... Read More
I'll be at Taste of Sonoma on Saturday at MacMurray Ranch. Napagirl, you've been quiet on this event. Are you staying home this year? This is the event of the year around here. Over 200 wineries pouring 700+ wines paired with food from over 60 chefs from the best restaurants in the County.Wine served under huge tents labeled by appellation, RRV,... Read More
Wow, we had a great time last night. Hopefully Foxall will have a chance to put his spin on things. I didn't take any notes, just 2 pictures but I lined up some of the dead soldiers this morning. 15 people, over 30 different wines and not a single dud except for a sweet/syrupy/candied 2001 Rosenblum Monte Rosso Zinfandel. But enough for the bad... Read More
