With shades of patriotism in the wake of Australia Day, Australian foodie website Good Food name its yearly “Wine Honours” list. “We may not have a long winemaking history in this country, not compared with the Europeans, but we have something they will never have,” contributor Jeni Port wrote, “that true blue, dinky-di never-say-die spirit tha...

A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC. ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More
Hi everyone. My wife Sandra and I have been into wine for the past few years and that's led to a few trips to Napa Valley and related areas in 2012 and 2013. We enjoy all wines but reds are our favorites. We hosted our first wine tasting party last night and it was a fun event - sixteen wine lovers trying different wines in a blind tasting. ... Read More
Not only is Cabernet Sauvignon the most popular red wine, it’s also one that is best suited to gift giving. It’s a wine that everyone knows and understands. Big, rich and bold, it’s the archetype of red wines that is perfect for the cooler months that lie ahead. While Cabernet does get a bit of a bad rap as being ubiquitous, that doesn’t mean th...

27th July 2013, Ormond Hall, St Kilda RdIt is well-evident that there is no shortage of Rhone-inspired wines in Australia. We certainly have vineyards which bask in similar weather conditions as the Rhone Valley. One could argue that a key missing element would be the round river rocks atop the clay soils which retain heat to intensify the summ... Read More
Pinot has been a much celebrated topic here on Snooth over the years I've participated, and it's obviously one of the more celebrated grapes in the wine world. It'll no doubt be a story line I plan on focusing on in years to come so I thought I'd start a thread, logging experiences. Sorry in advance, Greg T.Having said that, I've been mostly dis...

A couple of news items I was pondering today.First, Robert Parker came out with his ratings for the 2009 Bordeaux vintage.

So who goes to a Mexican restaurant thinking about wine?Not many people, but Salpicon restaurant in Chicago is working to change that. I’ve never been to Salpicon and frankly I’ve already forgotten how I found out about it, but wow, what a wine list!I know what you’re saying. Yes, great wine list, but Mexican food can be difficult to pair with w... Read More
Had one of those once in a lifetime days betting the ponies today. With the winnings, i'm probably going to be budgeting up to $1500.00 on some more expensive wines I haven't been able to afford in the $80-$200 range. Any suggestions? I favor a right-bank bordeaux style for reds but also enjoy a medium bodied cabernet style, along with rhone ... Read More
