  • 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

  • Miller Wine Works Syrah Napa Valley Sage Canyon Vineyard 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This Syrah, achieves Garys objective in a big way. A big wine, from hillside fruit coming from the warmer Sage Canyon region of Napa, its got substantial alcohol (15.4%) and lower acidity compared to some of the cooler climate syrah we often drink. Balanced and by no means a fruit bomb, its a wine with an admirable sense of balance and really ni... Read More

  • With the weather warming up, but not quite in full summer mode (at least for most of us), I thought it would be a good time to take a look at some of the West Coast Chardonnay that has been arriving in the office lately. Chardonnay still rules the roost as far as white goes, and for good reason. It’s a prolific producer, and winemakers have fig... Read More

  • Zaca Mesa Reserve Syrah Santa Ynez Zaca Mesa Reserve Syrah 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Blue fruit, grape and mineral on the nose. There is a decided sense of opulence about this fruity offering. Well balanced with a nice, but not a terribly long finish. Nice little wine. 91. Read More

  • I am taking a sommelier course.  I find there are a lot of aromas that I honestly do not know what they smell like.  Cedar, fruit that is real and not a synthetic bath and body works lotion, gooseberries, etc.  I really would love to be able to familiarize myself with these scents.  Unfortunately, the kits - I would want reds, whites and faults,...

  • Dear friends,I need your help!I wonder what the precise meaning of the term "palate" is.If you use it according to the common sense, it should mean "the roof of mouth". But this area does not have any tasting buds at all, therefore, it should be irreverent to tasting wine.But I very often see people use the term in phrases something like "on the... Read More

  • Girasole Mendocino Sangiovese 2008

    Snoothrank:

    See-through pinot-esque color. Strong alcohol heat on the nose. Tastes like chianti mixed with primitivo which makes sense considering the blend. Lots of sour fruit (cherry and cranberry) makes for a great food wine. Tastes exactly like Craisings. I would guess it is versatile but be safe and pair with marinara sauce based dishes. Read More

  • Giacomo Conterno Barolo 1989

    Snoothrank:

    There is an edge of terpene noticeable here at first that initially detracts from the nose but the rich core of slightly gamy fruit, redolent of sweet cherries, soon overtakes any sense of inadequacy here. The aromas are powerful and deep with chiseled mineral notes, clear and precise and offering complicating tones of espresso and black pepper ... Read More
