|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Chianti Classico|
Now here is a modern style Chianti that really measures up: bright red robe, lots of tobacco, cherry salad puckering tannins and good acidity - all from a fine, successful vintage from this well known producer. Unless moving upscale looking to the 7th...
|Winery:||Château Pey La Tour|
|Region:||France » Bordeaux|
This is my first taste of Pey la Tour in many years, and the 2012 vintage (considered "classic") is the perfect point of return. It greets the nose with cherries and earth - not a great deal more - but typical red from the region (Bordeaux A. C.). En...
Pretty smooth, port wine at a nice price point. Had purchased a vintage Taylor Fladgate and was curious about this lower price point port. Was not disappointed and will likely buy again.
|Region:||Italy » Veneto » Prosecco Di Conegliano-valdobbiadene|
Perfect little non-vintage Prosecco. Full of green apple and under-ripe peach with scents of honey and honeysuckle flower. Medium to soft acidity, but an overall great sipper. Had it with fresh oysters. At the price point, cannot be better.
|Winery:||Viña Casas Patronales|
|Region:||Chile » Central Valley » Maule Valley|
2014 vintage as impressive as 2013, medium to full bodied dry Chilean red with dark fruit, earth, and coffee notes, smooth finish for this price point $6 what are you kidding me all day, barefoot and yellowtail got nothing on this one, their Merlot is ...
|Region:||France » Alsace » Ammerschwihr » Alsace Aoc|
It can be tricky, this variety, especially at this price point; too often it's perfectly pleasant, appley and fresh, but just a bit ... dull. This, however, is what you hope for: a beautiful golden colour, perfumed, almost viognier-like asparagus nose,...
|Winery:||The Little Penguin|
|Region:||Australia » South Eastern Australia|
Surprisingly tasty and rounded for a wine at this price point. I held off till my second try from the bottle before scoring because one of my criteria for scoring is how a wine drinks after the vacu-vin/refrigeration episode. After 2 days in the fridge...
|Region:||USA » Oregon » Willamette Valley|
Enjoyed an earlier vintage at a restaurant in Oregon. Easy and smooth, if a bit thin. Considering this as an additional "house wine", with its reasonable price point.
|Winery:||Opus One Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Napa|
|Varietal:||Petit Verdot , Malbec , Cabernet Franc , Cabernet Sauvignon , Merlot|
Wine Review: A Tale of Two Vintages – Opus One 2007 & 2008 I was so unbelievably honored when Opus One’s Winemaker, Michael Silacci invited me to dinner as a thank you for my Opus One 2007 wine review. Well, honored is an understatement, I was so ...
|Winery:||Produttori del Barbaresco|
|Region:||Italy » Piemonte » Barbaresco|
Dark and earthy at first with raspberry in alcohol, tree bark, fleshy wild cherry and a minor menthol note. This opens to reveal good aromatic complexity full of incipient floral tones, pollen, and fennel seed tones. Sweet on entry with a really nice s...

Just got another box of Mike Smith's wines, and have noticed the ABV's are in a reasonable space for today's super ripe Napa market. Maybe it's just the wines I tend to buy from Mike's labels, as he has said he likes the challenge of making higher ABV wines drink in a balanced way.This could have been a PM to OT, but I figured others would be in...

My big day mixing in the wine world as I've kind of helped break this news, owing to a friend of mine who is close to Laurent Ponsot. Same friend from the Netherlands who GregT and I tasted with in San Diego. Anyhow, Peter from WS contacted me this morning for info and I was able to speak with him right after he spoke to Laurent and before the s... Read More

Looking for a smooth, soft white wine from a good vintage - perhaps even a conversation piece? If yes, this slightly off-the-track Sauvignon Blanc from Auxerre near Chablis may just be the ticket. The wine is less concentrated than SB from the Loire or Bordeaux with a softer, more herbal entry of lemon and grass. Musk tends to dominate elsewh... Read More

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 am hoping to get some input on what Aussie wine the Snooth Community is seeing on the shelves [either retail or restaurants] in your local areas.US wine in Australia is still very much limited to the bigger wine companies egArgyle Pinot NoirStags LeapBerringerEtudeOccasionly the big guns from Napa will appear on the Auction Sites.I am always h...

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
Look, this thread is about politics, from the gitgo. If you don't want to discuss them in any way whatsoever, then stick to the other threads.
