There's a happy rumor (OK, it is more than a rumor.) that Myriad is going to release a 2014 Syrah from Halcon Vineyard grapes. This sound pretty exciting to me. I was introduced to Halcon here on Snooth and for the past few years I have been regularly ordering all their wines. The opportunity to try another winemaker's interpretation of this ... Read More
Greg, don't even read this!Yesterday I hosted a pinot noir event. It was a blind tasting of three BC and one California. Talk about getting out of the box. For me this is tantamount to cross-dressing. It started because Chester introduced me to the Kettle Valley "Hayman" reserve Pinot last year. I really liked it, so when I found one (83 ca... Read More
Amid the bitter drought wracking California vineyards is a very delicious oasis of hope. San-Francisco based Wine Institute spokesperson Gladys Horiuchi talked with regional agricultural publication Capital Press this past Friday about a beneficial side-effect of low water levels in West's biggest state: increased flavor despite decreased yield....

As a recently displaced New Yorker, I speak for all of NYC when I say, "Nothing exists west of the Hudson River." ;)I'm drinking this guy tonight. Bought three bottles based on recommendations from this forum. Any advice as to how long I should decant? I actually don't have a lot of exposure to zinfandel or zin heavy blends. Just looked back thr... Read More

The ambient temperature in my region is approximately 55 degrees throughout the day; ideal for harnessing the explosive potential lurking within this vast selection. The tight seal on this cellar door makes for the perfect, dank environment. I have plans to expand later this year. Okay, eno... Read More

After graduating from medical school and before beginning indentured service as a resident physician, my wife and I decided we should make a trip out to California wine country and Yosemite. So, a week after moving to my new residency location, we pawned off the two year old on the grandparents and headed for the hills of California.We arrived i... Read More
I was fortunate to be able to attends last weeks ZAP Experience. As you might know this year’s event differed from those in years past as the event was broken down into additional components. The trade and media portion of the Experience is now a discreet tasting, and the grand tasting has been broken out into sections, that took place on the g... Read More
Back in July, I proposed a West Coast Pinot Noir throwdown on the Snooth forums. In what was a pot-luck twist on one of Gregory dal Piaz’s “Drink My Wine” events, I suggested that any Snooth forum posters could congregate in my neck of the woods—Oakland, California—and bring a bottle of their favorite Pinot Noir from whatever region they think ...

As we pass into these last weeks of August we find ourselves facing the start of harvest throughout the northern hemisphere. While we tend to think of September and October as the months of harvest, in many regions early varieties, particular whites and grapes destined for sparkling wine production, typically start coming in during the coming tw...
