  • Makes sense in that context re: Brewer Clifton. Sta Rita Hills is home to some surprisingly good Chardonnay (Liquid Farm opened my eyes to that a few years ago).  Read More

  • Castello Sonnino Chianti Montespertoli Castello di Montespertoli 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Full-bodied, very smooth with a "spice" or kick to it that is a little foreign to the palate when you think of Chianti. Not the most complex wine in the world, but interesting enough to linger with you long after your glass is empty. Highly acidic but extremely refreshing in every sense of the word. I cannot speak to the older vintages, but I wa... Read More

  • As I sat with Josh Jensen in his winery office at Calera, we looked down at SLH and Mr. Jensen called it what I have always thought it should be called:  The Santa Lucia Lowlands. It's really a benchland above the valley floor, but it's not a highland in any real sense.  The highest vineyard is 1200 feet above sea level.  And that's just one--mo... Read More

  • Definitely my 2016 Pinot Noir of the year, probably favorite domestic wine of 16' crafted by none other than Mike Smith. Had honestly written off the Ancillary project as likely to be more over ripe, cola'd Pinot's entering the market, but there's that saying "don't knock it til' you try it", and that proved to be the case here. Knowing that Mik... Read More

  • Okay, we're counting down to the end of the year.  With three drinking weeks left, start nominating your wines of the year.  And, if you like, nominate a wine experience of the year. I'm going to have to think about the WOTY for a while, and I'll update this OP as things occur to me, but I'm going to say it wasn't a year full of head turning win...

  • To celebrate the. Buck hanging in my garage from this morning' hunt, I decided to be brave and saber the 25 year old Cooks that was recently found in my basement. Yep Cooks, you heard that correct. Plenty of pressure and a clean break. Nice bubbles and a golden almost not quite pinkish hue. Very earthy with a hint of cranberry. I like it. Cheap ... Read More

  • Kathy,When your friend takes you and orders the wine, try to not look at the bottle.  Have it opened and poured without knowing what it is.  Take a good couple of deep sniffs and think about what you're smelling.  Take a sip and let it get all over your tongue, swallow it and again think about what sensations you're getting and try to detect som...

  • Hello all,I'm not actually a beginner in wine preparation. I started preparing wine 3 months ago. I've tasted different varieties of wine and my favorite is Merlot wine. I had a doubt earlier on how to store the prepared wine. I searched many sources and asked many friends and  I happened to read an article yesterday which had tips to properly s... Read More

  • Being aware of price points for most of the other varietals I have always wondered why the Pinot Noirs are always priced way ahead of the other varietals.It is almost impossible to purchase a Pinot Noir at the same price point/quality as a Cabernet Sauvignon for under $20Now I live in a region where both Cabernet Sauvignon (Washington State) and...

  • Boizel Champagne Blend Champagne Brut Millésimé 1999

    Snoothrank:

    This 1999 vintage Champagne from Boizel evokes a sense of Christmas past on the nose with baked apple and just a hint of spice with a good spritz of orange flesh and rind. The mousse is quite strong and lasts for about 10 minutes or so before dissipating. Entry is demi-sec, with nice baked apple (again) with mandarin orange and cinnamon bark on ... Read More
