King of the zinfandels, all hail. Surprised the reviews are low, but to each their own, here are some points I'd like to highlight. A full-sensory experience, this zin has fragrance, colour and taste in its pocket. Not only does the wet wine wash we...

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop, also called 'Le Grand Bouqueteau ' next to the car park by the entrance to Chinon castle when I visited at the end of May 2014. Chinon is an AOC created in 1937,although wine production in the area goes back ce...

Oddly herbal in a composty and medicinal king of way, I find this to be unusual but attractive in its complexity and like the other South African Syrah in this tasting this is showing a distinctive character that is very possibly distinctive South Afri...

Sweet, wet to start, then semi-dry to finish. Depending on when you pick blackberries, they can range from a little tart like a raspberry to nature's candy. This is right on the edge between the two with the lucious exterior berry taste to the slight...

Shiraz, or should I say Syrah? Either way, you have one of the world’s truly noble grapes, yet one that tends to cause a bit of confusion. The two names don’t help of course, or the fact that, in theory, they represent two different styles of wine. One the one hand you have Syrah, the name in French that represents the style of wine produced thr... Read More
Oddly herbal in a composty and medicinal king of way, I find this to be unusual but attractive in its complexity and like the other South African Syrah in this tasting this is showing a distinctive character that is very possibly distinctive South African terroir. Or a dollop of Pinotage added to the blend. A touch candied with some vanilla nuan... Read More
Somethings just stand out. I do a fair amount of browsing of recipes and the like, and all too often I see something , then it dawns on me. I don't make that enough. It's not that I don't cook often, because I do. It's just that I tend to fall back on what's comfortable and familiar, which in my case is an odd blend of Italian, Creole, and Carib... Read More
It’s time to talk about bubbles. For better or worse we associate New Year’s Eve with sparkling wine, though of course we could enjoy sparkling wine just about any time. One of the reasons we look to bubblies this time of year is that we are celebrating and sparkling wine is a celebratory wine, and often priced that way. But there are options ou... Read More
Okay, I think it's hilarious that multiple people think their SS is OT, or me, or GregT. If I had to guess, Jennifer's SS is not GregT. Why? Because I think JD's is. I think JenniferT's SS (and I am slightly at a loss here) was working within the constraints of Canada's wine availability and did what makes sense when you aren't sure: That's... Read More

It’s a great thing when things just come together. Earlier this year I had planned a trip to California to do some tasting but it had to be postponed. When I went to reschedule I noticed a thread in the Snooth Forum that was looking for people to join in a West Coast Pinot Noir Throw Down. I wasn’t sure what exactly that entailed but I am alway...

This is always one of the most difficult things I have to do each year. Sit down and try to figure out who will Snooth’s Winery of the year be?I'm never going to please everybody, or most of the people even, but I try and select someone, or some winery that does two things. The first is to produce wines that I really like. Ha! Sorry about that ... Read More

Last week I wrote up some reviews on “value priced” Pinot Noir, and I received a few comments asking if it was worth spending a few more dollars on wines costing a bit more. It was a fair question, and one I myself had explored just a week or two early when I compared “value priced” Sauvignon Blancs with wines costing just a few dollars more. Th... Read More
