|Region:||Greece » Aegean Islands » Santorini|
Earthy with the wood from barrel ageing immediately apparent on the nose. It’s well integrated adding resiny, sweet and smoky nuances to the nose but obvious and slightly more pronounced than the ripe pear and green floral notes that emerge in the glas...
|Region:||USA » Washington » Yakima Valley|
2008 Pinot Gris: Barrel fermented, grapefruit & lemons are what dances around your nose. Grapes are from Selah and Naches Heights. This is a dry and very unique wine, great with fish, salad and anything from the sea.
|Winery:||Weingut Walter Skoff|
|Region:||Austria » Styria|
Amazing smell! I've never smelled and tasted such a wonderful white barrique wine like this! I like wines which are fermented and/or aged in an oak barrel but I've never tasted neither a red nor a white wine which was so intensive like this. The resu...
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Sonoma Coast|
Purchased on sale during the Barrel Tasting weekend, this wine shows the usual remarkable Siduri fruit density, with bing cherry and plum fruit on top of a strong chocolate/charcoal core. Silky in texture, very ripe feeling in the mouth and finish. Ple...
|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County|
|Varietal:||Zinfandel , Petite Sirah|
Tasted at the 2010 Zap wine festival and I only captured the numeric rating. I’ll have to taste again to get more detailed notes. (Barrel)
|Region:||Italy » Tuscany » Montalcino|
Tasted from Barrel. Incredible complexity and elegance. Fresh and dried cherries, baking spices, earth, leather, and more. Much of the same on the palate, with an endless finish. Perfect balance. I did not write this note at the time of the tasting, bu...
|Winery:||Château La Louvière|
|Region:||France » Bordeaux » Graves » Pessac-Léognan|
|Varietal:||Sauvignon Blanc , Sémillon|
Still probably my favorite region for Sauvignon Blanc, and this wine reaffirms it. A lovely creamy texture (thanks to significant barrel aging) but without any woody flavors. Honeysuckle aromas give way to a lightly honeyed palette already beginning ...
|Region:||USA » California » Napa County » Oakville|
I would put this wine on the short list of best merlots out there today. Deep, unctuous texture, explosive blackberry fruit, whispers of vanilla oak, oh and I think someone might of thrown a bar of high quality dark chocolate into the barrel while no ...
|Region:||Italy » Puglia » Salice Salentino|
|Varietal:||Negroamaro , Malvasia|
Classic Salice gaining sweet fruit and wild berry tones from the addition of the Malvasia (20%). The wine retains classic tarry notes on the nose that compliment the boysenberry and dried plum fruit tones but in the palate this is dark and spicy with n...
|Winery:||Cordero di Montezemolo|
|Region:||Italy » Piedmont|
On the nose this is marred by some dirty barrel notes but still managed to show an impressively intense array of floral, tobacco, and ivy laced aromas that are savory and rich. Smooth and polished on entry, then turning pleasantly plump in the mouth w...

America’s first vertical tasting of the fine wines of Podere Sapaio from Bolgheri in Coastal Tuscany took place at my restaurant, Undici Taverna Rustica in Rumson, NJ, this past year. Owner, enologist Massimo Piccin was present and told us, “We are wine. We are men and women winemakers who transform grapes into wine by means of our know-how, our... Read More
The box was beat-up pretty good by UP_ _ _ _ and one bottle leaked. The bottle is being replaced by the winery. When should I attempt to drink this bottle? Read More
But the '94 won't be ready for another 20-30 years. I may not live that long the Blanco is the obvious choice.To your question, racking is pumping the wine off of its lees, cleaning the barrel and pumping the wine back into the barrel. Fining is a way of filtering the wine. Egg whites bond to suspended particulates in the wine and then can be sk... Read More
I opened a nice lightly oaked Chardonnay that we picked up from Muse Vineyards a few months ago. This is the same winery that won the Virginia's Governors Cup for 2015. I like every wine we have tried here."Barrel-fermented with hints of mineral and apricot on the nose, this wine is more intricate than many so-called New World Chardonnays. Its... Read More
OK, Mrs. EMark can't believe that it's been two years already. She had a great time.My recollection, because, believe it or not, the hard copy notes are not to be found, is that my favorite wine that evening was the Patz & Hall Hyde Vineyard. I'm always the outlier. Everybody else seemed to go ga-ga over the OR Pinot that LingProf brought. T... Read More
Or was it yesterday? This just came up as a memory on my facebook feed today. A great Snooth memory. On the far left with white/grey/dark beard is Greg dal Piaz, Foxall to his right, EMark to Fox's right, myself, and James Hall from Patz & Hall. Fox's wife is the lady sort of facing the camera, while the rest you can't see but it's Anne Moses? o... Read More

Tastevins served their place back in the days before electricity, when winemakers and cellarmasters could use a thief or other to rob from the barrel and place into the shallow silver cup, and the professional eye could judge what needed to be judged by the reflection of fire-based light off the silver through the small amount of wine. Then tast... Read More
