Black Rose on Snooth

  • Chateau de Gaudou Cahors 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A deep purple/ruby Malbec with a briny, blackberry, plum, black cherry pits, dried rose petals and soft spices, some faint earthy, animal notes on the nose. Palate sees follow through of everything on the nose except the animal/earth notes. Also has green pepper, cracked black pepper, vanilla with strong tannins and moderate acid. Has an unex...

  • Here’s an article that had a slim chance of being written. Pull together a case of wine from a vintage that is deemed passable at best and drink them at 33 years of age. I mean what the hell do you expect to find?How about:People, even the experts don’t know much.What is written about older vintages is a pile of steaming supposition.We are just ... Read More

  • I've posted some notes on this producers wines in the Whatcha drinking thread but figured he deserved his own thread. Robin Akhurst is the winemaker for Envy Wines in Calistoga and asst to Mike Smith of Myraid. I met Robin a couple years ago through Mike and really like him and his approach to winemaking. Nice guy, humble, passionate, hard worki... Read More

  • It’s the heart of winter here in the northern hemisphere, a time when our attentions turn to robust red wines. One wine in particular seems to be relegated to these cold months, and that is a bit of a shame. I’m talking about the often misunderstood Amarone. A powerful wine, one with relatively high alcohol and rich flavors, but one that often i... Read More

  • Brengman Brothers Pinot Noir 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Bright ruby burgundy color with reflective light quality filled with incense aromatics of cola, black cherry, cedar, burning candle, hay, clove, dark chocolate, parsnip, maple syrup and roasted coffee. A creamy palate full of rose hips, dark chocolate, fast cherry, roasted chestnut and coffee with a Kung Fu tannin grip. Read More

  • Blackbird Vineyards Merlot Blend Napa Valley Arriviste 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Love this surprising rose! Big weighty notes of strawberry, black cherry, and watermelon. Smooth, weighty, and slightly sweet on the plate, all well balanced by well integrated acid. Some mineralogy, almost ever so slightly saline. A huge, complex rose, this one was definitely more fullbodied thank expected. A great,substantial rose. Read More

  • Liver what? It’s that great wine region you’ve never heard of. Less than an hour from San Francisco. A growing wine scene based on a century and a half of history. Great climate, friendly people, tasting rooms that are not filled to capacity with people you don’t want to be rubbing shoulders with. You know, one of those regions that is truly up ... Read More

  • It has been some four years since I last took a look at 1989 Barolo in any depth. Now at age 25 these wines should be in the prime of their lives, at least the better examples still out there. Increasingly rare and well traded, there is much to be concerned with with these wines. Faulty corks, poor storage along the way and the simple vagaries o... Read More

  • Vietti Barolo Castiglione 1989

    Snoothrank:

    Tight on the nose with superb rose petal aromas over a base of candied raspberries, and wild cherry that have a light jammy edge to them. Some hints of buttery toast and and herbal hint of black currrant add further complexity. A bit tough and rather strict in the mouth, this is filled with mineral flavors layered over a base of dark cherry and... Read More

  • Poderi Aldo Conterno Barolo Colonnello 1989

    Snoothrank:

    A bit of celery and bouillon is obvious on the nose, though there remains some lovely complexity with fine aromas of wood smoke, black tea, and dried rose petals slowly filling the glass along with a nice limestoney edge. Theres not much fruit left here, what remains is rather rough and rustic with lots of black spice and licorice flavors. This ... Read More
