Wine by the Bay
Smoy and lightly caramelly on the nose with lots of darkly jammy blackberry fruit and hints of both dates and pomegranate with a dusting of white pepper as a top note. Smooth as wool on entry, a little fuzzy but ultimately plush and friendly with a big...

|Region:||USA » California » Sonoma County » Alexander Valley|
Smells a bit stony then deeply earthy with a bit of sweet oak tempered by a dried rose petal notes, some red licorice tones and a bit of café au lait. Lovely deep blackberry, boysenberry fruit here with a touch of vanilla and bay leaf that adds a hint ...

HUGE nose (was filling the room within 10 minutes): Black Currant, Blackberry, Mushroom, Green Pepper, Bay Leaf, Mint, Cocoa, Cigar Box and a little Strawberry to tie it all together. Taste was primarily fine tobacco together with a bit of camphor and ...

60% old vine vineyard field lend, 40% Touriga nacional Smokey and fairly oaky on the nose with a nutty and expensive aroma. A big wine on entry, round and rolls into the mouth like the changing tide. There are great acids supporting a bright juicy b...

Fairly intense aromatically, showing off lots of caramelly toasted oak aromas along with paprika and raw beefy accented red berry fruit topped with some bay leaf and oregano . This is smooth, firm and slightly dense in the mouth. It’s filled with polis...

|Region:||USA » California » San Luis Obispo County » Paso Robles|
Really I was joking when I told my girlfriend Susie the other night that I could get at least a hundred bucks for this wine on eBay. She looked at me wryly, "really?" and pop went the cork. I was cooking up some of the Halibut that Susie had caught las...
|Region:||Italy » Abruzzi » Montepulciano d'Abruzzo|
A touch stemmy on the nose which shows a hint of pencil lead and quite perfumed bay leaf aromas. Smooth, a touch matte and with a hint of richness on the palate, this delivers a nice mouthful of slightly spicy black cherry fruit supported by lovely aus...
|Winery:||Lange Estate Winery & Vineyards|
|Region:||USA » Oregon » Willamette Valley|
A hint of nutty smokiness greets the nose followed by handful of dirty, freshly dug herbs. This smells powerful and savory with a slightly roasted base note of strawberries with a hint of pomegranate seed and orange pith. This enters the mouth with dec...

On and off with differing frequency mention is made on these boards of garnacha as a choice for certain palates, and in certain contexts. Most of the mention here is pretty generic, and doesn't get down to any level of detail.Would like to suggest we take up the subject of wines from this grape with better focus. Where is good, who makes the goo... Read More
OK, this is a topic that hasn't come up recently but has many times in the past. How to store wine in the house? Whether to refrigerate? How to choose passive or refrigerated wine cellars? What kind of wine fridges are best? Etc., etc.I was doing some real estate shopping in the Ventura/Santa Barbara counties area and ran across a higher-end h... Read More
Hi, my wife and I received a nice bottle of wine as a wedding present that we've now been cellaring for over 5 years (planning to enjoy on our anniversary in the future when its time, online people suggest to 'hold' still). We've never cellared wine before, but it's been fun to have this special bottle that we're waiting to enjoy together over m... Read More
Here for business, but finding the time to work in some wine escapades. Last year I met several Chicago wine people at a Burgundy tasting, and earlier this year some more at La Paulee. So on short notice I decided to let them all know I was coming to town, and luckily I got a good tip on an excellent restaurant near my hotel, Nico Osteria. Have ... Read More
I found your site when I was searching for information on the Arcadian Winery of the Finger Lakes. The reason, you ask? I opened a bottle of pinot noir from this very estate for guests at a dinner party at our home, not realizing it was the only such bottle that my boyfriend owned, and that the winery no longer existed. The wine was enjoyed by... Read More
So in my line of work--some of you know that I'm a criminal defense attorney in the Bay Area--we don't often cross paths with the winemakers of the bay area. But every now and then a case shows up in court that involves the wine world. Two have attracted my attention this month. The first involves Donkey and Goat, a hip winery in Berkeley tha... Read More
This past August, as you may have heard, a group of African-American women were booted from the Napa Valley Wine Train for being loud and bothering other passengers. Police officers were waiting for them when the train stopped and they were unceremoniously ushered off the train. This past Saturday, a group of 35 wine enthusiasts boarded the Win... Read More
In this day and age when nearly every secret to the universe can be solved by a split-second Google search, it's somewhat unbelievable that anything new can be uncovered. Yet that's exactly what happened this past week when Next Avenue reporter Jodi Helmer dug into the lesser-known wine regions of the United States and unearthed four wine regio... Read More
There's a happy rumor (OK, it is more than a rumor.) that Myriad is going to release a 2014 Syrah from Halcon Vineyard grapes. This sound pretty exciting to me. I was introduced to Halcon here on Snooth and for the past few years I have been regularly ordering all their wines. The opportunity to try another winemaker's interpretation of this ... Read More
Today I received the e-mail solicitation from Under the Wire. I was in the second mailing. So, the wine I really wanted was "Sold Out" before I even opened the e-mail.
