Ives on Snooth

  • Ives, those Hostess fruit pies (cherry, apple, blackberry) in the waxed paper wrappers were my 2nd dessert of choice (first was on the tray when sitting down inside) when we gathered in the quad outside the cafeteria after lunch in Jr. Hi and High School. A distant 2nd choice was Doritos (spicy hot taco flavor), which had just come out back then... Read More

  • IVES - Thanks and please call me Paul.  You are correct in your green pepper assessment, as well the density of the wine, the rich forest floor notes.  Steak fajitas and chimichurri  steak as well.31 Read More

  • Sometimes we get used to paying upwards of $100 for a nice bottle of wine from the wine shop.  Those are the 'good days' that we want to remember, but soon you notice your bank account is dropping faster than Trumps approval rating, so you start looking for more value-oriented wines that are tasty in their own right.This topic is all about value...

  • IVES, if you have some spare time while in Eugene, you might find something interesting in this trip report.If you get up to McMinnville, you need to call ahead to setup a tasting with Marcus Goodfellow and don't miss having lunch right around the corner at the commissary.JD, you can't go wrong with any one of those.

  • Ives, you're killing me!  Absent for, what, years, and then these hilarious tasting notes. Last night, finally able to taste wine a little.  Had a 2010 Malleolus Ribera del Duero.  I thought very good with our chicken with dry rub made with coffee, but nothing amazing.  Pretty good sized fruit, tannins to hold up to the tannins in the food (not ...

  • Rough evening Ives!I generally enjoy 2010 Napa more than most others. Though I had the good fortune of being around when a friend opened a 2010 Shafer Hillside Select, and it disappointed. All up front, obvious fruit with some vanilla. No real power on the finish as I remember so vividly with the 2002. Read More

  • I almost always drink a Bordeaux, Bord blend or Cab with burgers.  And I ... dinner.  BTW, Johnny Ives, head of design of Apple, was at the table behind me, and the kids met him.  Dick Costolo was in the private room (the one we get for bigger groups) telling the management of Twitter that he was done as CEO.  Quite a night.)  We had Steve Rai...

    Forum post in the topic Hamburger wines

  • There were three of us, or actually 2 1/2 since my wife didn't drink much and doesn't like whites. The burgers were going to be 50/50 bacon/beef, which opened a world of possibilities so we decided to go all-American. Halcón Vineyards Prado to start, a 50.50 Marsanne/Rousanne blend that would have gone really well with the mushroo... Read More

  • Ives, the Cline/Chili party sounds pretty good to me.  Have fun.OT, I'm sure you were aware of this and will say "Oh yeah."  Ridge has varietal bottlings from the Lytton Springs vineyard under the "Lytton Estate" label.  They are pretty hard to find.  So, I suspect that they do not do it every year.  I have seen/tried Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and...
