  • Throughout my global wine travels, the winegrowers I meet offer a unified message: Climate, as expressed through weather, is changing, and chaotic weather patterns are making vintages more difficult and unpredictable.The 2016 Bordeaux vintage is a case in point.

  • Same fruit, same vineyard, same vintage conpletely different beasts. I opened and followed the Mending Wall last night and tonight it’s the O&F (actually both side-by-side now). My takeaway is that the Mending Wall is much more approachable at this stage and the Once and Future will excel with patience. Tasting these it’s like a PS made by a Cab... Read More

  • Vintage Ink Limited Edition Whisky Barrel Aged Red 2015

    Snoothrank:

Aromas of booze right up front that soften with some oxidation, and along comes soft vanilla, dark cherry, liquor (whisky) and oak char.

  • Have you noticed that wherever you are in the world, the Christmas lunch menu is set in stone? In England smoked salmon followed by a traditional turkey roast and Christmas pudding has produced broad smiles around the festive table for decades … I’m a big fan but the part that I don’t really get is when the same wines are rolled out year on year...

  • How is mead somehow wine, Paul? Don't think it was called anything but 'mead' in the dark and middle ages.  ;-)I suppose the issue being discussed is kind of like calling tissanes teas, as some folks do. Wine that reaches ethereal heights, continues to live and mature and grow more complex in barrel and bottle, and that has caused cultures to si... Read More

  • I just recently bought Primrose Farm in Hinsdale Massachusetts.  My son discovered that you can make wine out of primrose flowers, so we're thinking about making some.  I'd like to buy some, as I've never even tasted it.  I'm scanning the internet now.  Read More

  • According to a YouGov poll, forty-one percent of Americans enjoy wine with Thanksgiving dinner. It's no wonder we spend so much time planning our drink menus. Turkey Day wines have been discussed on Snooth at length over the past ten years. Tastes have evolved to include more than just the mainstays. Traditions have been shattered, and most meal...
