  • "with regard to Pinot Noir, I still prefer the ones from Oregon"You need to drink a lot more Burgundy, and of the others I mentioned, too.  ;-)   Oregon's getting there but still on the road, not yet fully arrived IMHO, even if I enjoy many of theirs. Was writing on these boards about Soter and Drouhin, for example, last decade. I certainly comm... Read More

  • L'Ecole 41 Columbia Valley Merlot 1998

    Snoothrank:

    I decanted the wine for about an hour before my first pour and it's a nice garnet color with a hint of amber along the edges and great clarity. The nose presents lovely aromas of ripe berries, blackberry, cherry and raspberry over some earthy notes of leather and cedar. The taste is reminiscent of a fine Bordeaux, with some ripe black fruit up... Read More

  • That's pretty funny, Fox.When I started inventorying my wine, sometime in the early 1980s, I had a looseleaf binder with columnar ledger sheets.  When I consdered column headings, I was pretty sure I wanted to note the name of the wine and the vintage date.  Beyond that I thought the source would be neat, the purchase price, and the date purchas...

  • Great one, Mark.  Note the 12.5 percent ABV. Drank a 2014 Castel Sellagg Lagrein last night with lasagna.  I'd have gone with something sharper in acid, like Chianti, but it was there on the shelf.  And it's only a $15 wine.  But total overperformer.  Chocolate notes that I often get from dark lagreins, and this one was dark--nearly opaque purpl...

  • According to the Wine Institute, in 2015, eighty-three percent of wine from the United States was made from grapes grown in California. Clearly, the world wine stage has welcomed California bottles with opened arms. Wine lovers from around the world clamor for access to California wines. They journey to the state’s many celebrated regions with g... Read More

  • Sangiovese is touted as the most widely planted grape variety in Italy. It is most frequently associated with Tuscany; being the catalyst for Brunello, Chianti, and Vino Nobile de Montepulciano. However, Sangiovese is as much at home in Romagna as it is in Tuscany. In fact, according to the Consorzio Vini di Romagna, pre-historic evidence sugges... Read More

  • I made it a whole month without purchasing any wine, at least that I remember, so when this email hit my inbox this morning I just had to. I really enjoy their Zinfandel as it has some very unique qualities that make it stand alone for me. $20/btl was a no brainer decision.Big discounts on full cases of Chester's Anvil winesView this email in yo...

  • At the urging of some here on Snooth, I am venturing out of my DCV Zinfandel rut.  My one Berserker Day splurge arrived today--a Cabot Zinfandel 6-pack from Humboldt County.OK, this one is not a Zinfandel varietal bottling.  It is, obviously, a red blend. With some quick internet research it appears to be 60% Zin and 40% Syrah.  What's not to li... Read More

  • Agreed Amour. There's no harm to it and often a nice upside.D - I didn't say they didn't evolve together, just that they were never developed together intentionally. Think about it. Most wine we know today is maybe a hundred or a hundred and fifty years old. In the late 1800s, Barolo was sweet, Bordeaux was putting out clear wines from Malbec an... Read More
