At first was only 3 stars, but improved after 15 minutes in the glass. Nose had cedar, cherry and olives. Viscous and chalky in mouth, with notes of pepper. Finish was maybe a little too tight. This wine may drink better next year.

Wow, a punch of dark fruit and elegance! Fragrant nose, very intriguing, floral with black cherries, velvet like, silky elegance of big time pleasure. This has mellowed out and has become such a refined beauty since the UGCB. The initial entry for the ...

This is a lovely, satisfying, value-driven, varietally-correct Pinot Noir. It is not in the same quality field of the other wines I mention. And, that's just fine. Because this wine is 1/3 to 1/4 the price of the others. This is an easy-drinking, moderate-bodied wine with no new oak and perfect ripeness.Overall I give it 3 glasses, but for the v... Read More
Hi all! I've recently posted three different lists of organic wines. Since I'm really interested in organic and biodynamic farming, I'd love to hear your tips on favorite wines in these categories. Is there anything you think I should taste? Also, it tends to be a topic on which people have strong opinions. What is yours? What do you think about... Read More
Sometimes you see the option of a house wine in a menu. What exactly is a house wine? Is the definition different around the world (cheap wine vs. local wine)? Would you try the house wine? Have you ever had a good one? Read More
I'm thinking it would be nice to get as many of you together as possible in one place for a dinner. Is that even feasible?I would prefer NYC of course, it's local for me, but more to the point I can bring a ton of wine to dinner easily.If this is support for the idea maybe we can begin to throw around some dates?

Wow!! And I am not a white wine drinker. This has very good fruit, only reason I don't give it all the stars is because I like bolder oak notes. Read More

I bet a lot of you have heard of Champagne Salon - the critically acclaimed Champagne from Le Mesnil sur Orger in the Cotes des Blancs. Salon has been different – right from the start… The Champagne house was established in 1911 - though the first vintage was the 1905 – by Eugène-Aimé Salon, a Champenois who had become a very successful Parisian...

So we meet again to follow up on my somewhat surprising list of the best producers of Barolo. This time around, it’s the top six list. These are the heavy hitters, the super stars, the best of the best.To me, these are all very obvious choices. Each has produced a line up of spectacular wines for at least a decade, often longer, and they are wel... Read More
Disapointed with my search results for Temecula. Most were from 2010...Anyway, we are going on a family vacation in the area and I need some assistance in choosing a few wineries to hit. Most of my research so far has been the wineries' websites, which are obviously biased. However, based on this I am thinking about Doffo, Wiens, and Wilson Cr... Read More
Hello everyone, my name is Mike Madaio and I'm excited to be a part of the Snooth Mentor program, focusing on Italian wines. Despite the subject heading (which means - I think - "Let's drink some Italian wine!"), I am not from Italy, but I was raised in an Italian-American family and thus have targeted (but not limited!) my obsessions to that cu...
