  • Chateau Ste. Michelle Chardonnay Canoe Ridge Vineyard Columbia Valley 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly smoky on the nose at first with backing notes of dried orchard fruits, butterscotch, dried grasses, and a touch of smoked ham. Rather elegant on entry with a soft touch of sweet wood adding an initial roundness to the palate feel. The mid-palate shows more obvious wood and while the wine is fresh and retains a sense of elegance it does h... Read More

  • In 1976, Amerine and Roessler ( U.C. Davis professors) counseled tasters to avoid emotive and anthropomorphic terms such big, finesse, hard, intense, lingering, long, rich, silky and velvety.  They stated in their book "Wines, Their Sensory Evaluation" that these words should be avoided at all costs.  How does the forum feel of this?

  • I've just returned from the International Malbec Days in Cahors, a festival meant to elevate the profile of "original" Malbec, and offer insight into the relationship between old world and new world expressions of the varietal.I'll be writing more about both the trip and the region, but for now, I wanted to offer highlights. I had limited exposu... Read More

  • I can't believe people still compare Bordeaux to California Cabernet Sauvignon.  I know it's patriotic to like California Cabs better than those frog wines across the pond, but doesn't it make more sense to compare left bank versus right bank Bordeaux, or Napa Valley Cabs versus Sonoma Cabs.  Should we believe that when we open a Cabernet from A...

  • I asked in another thread about recommendation for the Okanagan Valley area of British Columbia, but now I'm asking for up-to-date stories about an area closer to (my) home. I have a family gathering in The Ojai/Santa Barbara area next month, and was wondering who has recommendations about particularly good wines and winery visits in that area t... Read More

  • I'm curious: Do you order half bottles in restaurants, or ever purchase them for home consumption? I've started to notice them cropping up more frequently in my area (a wine bar just opened in my neighborhood that boasts a half-bottle option for nearly every wine on their list) -- and yet I always feel the urge to either order by the glass, or c...

  • Carabella Chardonnay Willamette Valley Dijon 76 Clone 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Minerals, earth, hay and herbs accent the melon and crisp pear fruit on the nose. This is elegant from the get go with surprisingly deep and rich, honey tinged tropical fruit on the palate that remains nicely freshly. There is a nice soft edge to this but vibrant acids and a hint of minerality keep everything lively in the mouth. The wine build... Read More
