I was strolling down the wine aisle last week when my eyes settled on a label. It sent me loopy! Its cute line drawing of an ancient castle drew my attention but those words...those unpronounceable words…Pacherenc du Vic-Bilh! If I’m struggling to cope imagine what poor Joe and Josephine Public are thinking, was my first thought. Where’s the win... Read More
Hi, I'm Bruce. I'm a UC Davis graduate of enology (26 years ago..alas) and have recently joined Snooth.

I'm still active in wine and eno... Read More

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
I spearheaded this incredible custom design last month. 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

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
