  • I don't think wet has much to do with it. You still want ripe grapes. A big question is whether you grow and pick to make a rosé or whether you make it as an afterthought, bleeding some juice from what you want to be a red. In the latter case, the wine is going to be sweeter and riper and often less satisfying. If you pick specifically to make a... Read More

  • 19 Crimes Red Blend 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Found this sitting around a didn't realize it was a '13 bottling. What a nice surprise it turned into. After sitting for 3 yrs without being bothered it morphed into this viscous, jammy dark cherry dominated wine that finished with good tannic/acidic balanced and a mini-porty syrupy swallow. Maybe they need to sit? 85 points - Paul Read More

  • William - I got it now.  I agree that single variety (which includes clones) may show what happened in a given region more completely than a blend.

  • Melini Chianti Riserva DOCG 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Light cherry and strawberry aromas with a touch of earth and earthy spice. Dry on the palate but pleasant with mixed berry notes, this is simple and approachable with a dusty finish. Read More

  • Château Olivier Rouge 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Punching above the weight of the vintage is the Chateau Olivier 2012...with a wonderfully miscible blend of cedar bark, blackberry jam and white pepper on the nose and a good blackberry and soft oak on the palate. Finish is quite long for the vintage and the wine will mate well with steak. 90. Read More

  • Franzia Chardonnay Bib 2013

    Snoothrank:

    I'm most a red wine drinker, but this is a very decent chardonnay. For the price, a no-brainer. Read More
