  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • Every wine producing country has strengths and weaknesses, some more than others. Chile has many high points that make it a go-to country when looking for outstanding wine. The number of unique regions that feature diverse soil types and microclimates is simply astounding. Chile has three thousand miles of coastline north to south as well as mou... Read More

  • Jcos, welcome to the Snooth Forum. Congratulations, also, on finding this trhead at the bottom of the barrel.  :-)Unless your stored your wine in a kitchen cabinet above the range, it should be fine.  Dessert wines have a very long life expectancy--decades.In our household, we enjoy dessert wine with fruit and cheese plates.  Apples and pears ar...

  • White wines are a summer classic, but it has been a long summer. There is a good chance that you are surfeit with white wine by now. Ultra-hip rosé and orange wines aren’t your only options. Be a true trendsetter and cozy up with a late summer red. Summer calls for diaphanous red wine grapes that allow fresh fruits to shine without the deep, dar... Read More

  • I'd use the barrels for parties. They work just fine within that time frame (sherry casks for whisky or brandy fine, too, over much longer time frame). Have had wine served several times that way, indoors, outdoors at private venues, as well as at commercial wine and beer cellar restaurants across Europe. Yeah if you want to drink a barrel over ...

  • The very rich are (or do live) very different(ly) from you and me. Here's a rumpus room where you can have the craft beer or wine (or spirit) of your choice on tap from the barrel. Owners of this property would have no problem having their wine from Jonata or anyone else in the area delivered by the barrel rather than the bottle...  Read More

  • Agreed on Riserva, and non-Riserva. I'm not really as interested in the extra aging or official qualifications, just that if the producer is deciding to bottle a regular and a riserva, the riserva is typically a better, or more highly regarded wine due to the cru, blocks within the cru, barrel select, etc. They all have their story I'm sure, and...

  • The past couple nights I have followed this Agharta Exhibit C. Seeing I went in on a library offer of this from Garagiste last month I figured no time like the present to take a look before it arrives. Whenever that will be.Based on this bottle they can take their time because it is still stuffed in all directions. I wouldn't open this unless yo... Read More

  • Foxall and I are getting together for a Burgundy and Barolo dinner in Oakland this Saturday. We may have a seat or two available for anyone willing to make some spur of the moment travel plans. Read More

  • Interestingly enough, was an offer from our friend Ian Cauble that falls right within this thread's discussion:  Massimo Clerico, Nebbiolo, Lessona DOC Piedmont, Italy 2008 If there is one lesson that is common amongst all the great red wines of the world, it is that nothing can substitute for optimal bottle age. You can decant a young wine t... Read More
