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...

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...
|Winery:||Six Hats Fairtrade|
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...

Salty breezes twirl Spanish moss and steal perfume from Confederate jasmine hedges that flank a cobblestone alley. Interspersed throughout the hedges are ornate wrought iron gates, coated with layers of shiny black paint, begging views of lavish gardens. A horse-drawn carriage plods by pastel-colored homes and then along the palm-lined harbor. J... Read More
Visiting Piemonte last week provided a valuable lesson in understanding the styles and quality levels of Barolo and Barbaresco, the supreme expressions of the late ripening, often finicky Nebbiolo grape.As you enter the gilded village of Barbaresco, signs of wealth abound, including the entrance to the venerable Angelo Gaja's estate. Gaja can be... Read More

In my continuing fascination with Chardonnay (or it could be more like a streak), I was out to dinner with my folks and we happened to go out to King's fish house, basically my dad's favorite restaurant. It's always been a bit of a tough play for wine, though not without a few somewhat interesting selections. Was also interesting how I might hav... Read More
Oregon has slowly been carving out a niche for itself with Pinot Gris.At first, the wines tended to be on the sweet side. Admittedly, the buying public was well served by the chosen moniker, Pinot Gris, over the more common and familiar Pinot Grigio. The difference can be subtle, but in essence the name informs the consumer that the wine should ... Read More
13%Nice vegetal nose, gone light pencil shavings tone, a very low innate sweetness to the fruit, smooth, easy style, bright acidity, ice table wine style. Easy dark king, juicy, pure but simple, nice length, rather focused finish with pure mineral inflected dark and wild, dark frutti del Bosco fruit, but this a bit simple, 85pts Read More

Lately I've been seeing ads for wine tumblers and am really not sure what to think. Maybe I'm a traditional guy who drinks his Cab out of a large bowl stemmed glass, his white out of a smaller stemmed glass and champagne out of a fluted shape. I suppose the tumbler is alright however, for some reason I cannot describe, it's just not right for me... Read More
Tonight I'm enjoying a bottle of my office wine club's latest selection, the 2008 Bonizio Sangiovese di Maremma! You know how much I love wine and my wine club buddies, so this is bound to be something fun. Now many of you are probably already quite familiar with the Sangiovese grape, the foundational grape in so many wonderful wines of Tuscan... Read More
The other day I took a chance on an obscure bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon priced very very low. It was the descriptor on the back label that convinced me that it was worth a try. I rated this 2010 Domino Cabernet Sauvignon here on Snooth. I also did a little research on the producers of this wine and found out that it was the Delicato Family Vin... Read More
