Pinot Noir / $19 Wilamette Valley / Oregon A good friend just returned from Portland, and picked up some Oregon Pinot Noir for us to try. We tasted three wines, all in the $20 range. Only one stood out, and for the $20 price tag, Willamette Valley ...
|Region:||France » Loire » Sancerre|
The Sancerre wine district is a small area which surrounds the Loire Valley in Central France. Sancerre wines are famous for their crisp, fragrant white wines made from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The Clement et Florian Berthier Sancerre has the class...

Nice deep red color with a nose that makes me think a bit of Rioja and a bit of Burgundy. Todonia like age on the nose with the subtle spice of Rioja, old wood and light cherry spice in the background. Pretty and welcoming with a touch of wood. In the ...
The Argentinean 'incarnation' of the Malbec grape, with its tighter, smaller berry clusters than the varietal's original French predecessor lends beautifully to making Rose style wine. The Avanti, I think in particular, is a fantastic example of this....

Bodegas Frutos Villar, Toro, "Muruve", Crianza, 2006 Production background: 12 months oak, 12 months in bottle. 100% Tempranillo, Toro region, Spain. I gave it "4 stars" over there for its value in particular, along with an overall, "Parker-esque" r...

|Varietal:||Malbec , Bonarda , Cabernet Sauvignon , Syrah , Merlot|
Awesome and at the higher end of the value Argentine blend price point. Nevertheless, this wine easily owns pricier, points-hyped blends that get the end-of-year thumbs up (cough, top 100) in the glossy magazines. This particular wine clearly represe...
Of the 250 wines I've tasted this ranks among the top 5, one of the best I've ever tasted. Lost my tasting notes but remember near flawless balance and integration with mouthfuls of smooth black plum, dark fig, and black cherry with notes of spice, jus...
|Winery:||Wine Spots Wines|
|Region:||USA » California » Napa|
I can't remember where I got this bottle, but in looking it up on the internet, it apparently was a pretty pricey bottle, though I can't imagine I paid that much for it. Wine Spots is interesting in that rather than a single vineyard, they go to vario...

I love a good big bold Cabernet, but I also am a huge fan of exceptionally dry red wines, after all, I learned to like red wines in Paris! So a nice Merlot will always have a place in my cellar and a glass to be filled. Which brings me to tonight's s...
|Winery:||Briar Rose Winery|
|Region:||USA » California » Riverside County » Temecula Valley|
94 points. The nose on this wine is buttery and sweet with an excellent amount of spice. It’s got tons of delicate rich solid components, the same chocolate tone that I am finding throughout most of their reds, and almost something along the lines of ...

Hi Everyone,New here so be gentle. Ever since I've heard about "Mega-purple" I've tried to do as much research on the topic as possible. Most people on the retail side either don't know about it or claim ignorance. Once I picked up on what I perceived to be M/P I've had a hard time getting passed it. Michael and David's 7 Deadly Zins seems to be... Read More
After last week’s introductory Wine 101 email, I thought the logical next step would be tips on serving wine. Now, I know you’d all rather dive right in to the wine once it's open, but the truth is that there are several factors worth exploring to make sure you get the most out of your bottle. There are three main points I will be covering in t... Read More
If you had $50 to spend on one wine, what would you buy? Read More
A bunch of people are gathering in San Francisco for a conference this week, and I was wondering what any of you think are the best food and wine experiences in the City right now. Am interested in bars, cafes, proper restaurants, what have you, and locations as far as southern Marin, the East Bay and Palo Alto or other spots on the southern pen... Read More
I am pretty new to snooth, and just stumbled across the intro page. I am the son of one of the owners of a very nice, very small winery in Southern Humboldt, CA. We are between two fine Pinot areas, Sonoma and Oregon. So, surpise! In the right spots here, Pinot Noir does very well. We also make Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, along with met... Read More
So, I read this article from NY Mag that has a breakdown in what one couple spent to open a wine store in Brooklyn and I was floored. Here it is http://nymag.com/guides/changeyourlife/16046/index1.htmlWhat would it cost in a smaller city? I cannot imagine having to sell 90 bottle a day to break even!!! Read More
From Canada’s first -- and by far most accomplished -- Master Sommelier, you might expect arrogance, or at the very least, impatience with people new to the vast world of wine. But you couldn't be more wrong: John Szabo has unbounded enthusiasm for what he does, and is willing and eager to share his knowledge with anyone curious about wine. He ... Read More
There I was in the Parilla Pena, my favorite grill in BA, with three friends, when I discovered Septimo Dia. Parilla Pena (pronounced Pen-ya) is a legendary lunch favorite for Portenos who are lawyers, judges and businessmen, cause the courts are close by. It is special, amazing and not a tourist trap. Every November and December I go and rent a... Read More
My husband and I will be celebrating 10 yrs of Marriage soon, I would love to find a wine that he brags about often, however he can not remember the name or how the bottle looks...they only details he have of this particular wine is that he went to a wine tasting in Germany about 15 yrs ago, its a red (blush color), with a smooth almond taste, h...
