  • Ok, so I just polished off a young Rioja called Vega Ariana (see my tasting notes). It was only a Joven (i.e. not even a Crianza) so it's a young pup without the benefit of oak. To be honest, it was palatable and the fruit was refreshing, but in the end it didn't really float my boat.So this got me thinking - can Rioja do well without the strong... Read More

  • Founded only in 1994, Torbreck has quickly emerged as one of Australia’s most acclaimed wineries.  David Powell, a local boy by way of Adelaide, left a career in accounting in search of a new lifestyle. His journey took him to some of the great vineyards of Europe and California, as well as to Scotland, where he cut wood in a forest called Torbr... Read More

  • I left off last week after going through the first chapter of the Mondavi Story, which ended with the ongoing adventures of the Peter Mondavi Branch of the family at Charles Krug. Peter and Robert are the children of Cesare, the Mondavi who started it all.  In a way, Robert was following in his father’s footsteps when he set off to found his epo... Read More

  • I am new to Snooth but not so new to wine - drinking, not so much "tasting". Can you share some of the elements that determine wine pricing? Curious. Anyone with thoughts, ideas, facts, please share. Thank you! Read More

  • Forest Glen Shiraz Sonoma County Oak Barrel Selection 2003

    Snoothrank:

    For me a typical California wine, big strong smoky flavor and alchohol present. Soft tannins, could be good complement for soft cheeses, would recommend more as an apperitif than main dish wine. Read More

  • Adanti is both one of the historic producers of Sagrantino di Montefalco, as well as one of the largest.  With 32 hectares (about 80 acres) under vine and a lineage that reaches back to the 1960’s, which is quite long for the region, they are poised to become major players in the Sagrantino scene. The wines of Adanti strike me as particularly ma... Read More

  • Colsanto is a quite new, and modern, winery that is owned by the Livon family: winemakers in Friuli.  The vineyards date back to only to the 2001 harvest, and the 20 hectares (50 acres) are just now entering maturity of a sort. The wines of Colsanto are the wines of someone taking a risk. The fermentation is temperature controlled at a rela... Read More

  • Some discussion of clones may shed light on the New World expression of Pinot Noir. I have long believed that clones explain a great deal of the diversity found in the many wines made from this globe-hopping noble grape. Terroir, vineyard maintenance and climate do not seem to fully explain the differences - at least, not to my satisfaction. ... Read More

  • Recently I had the pleasure of attending the Montreal Passion du Vin tasting event. The event is conducted by the SAQ; Quebec’s provincial wine and spirits monopoly.  I was delighted with many of the wonderful tastings, but one stood out as a real surprise. Among the tastings of classified Bordeaux, and Vintage Champagne, we enjoyed several wine... Read More

  • Volpaia: it takes a village, no seriously. The Castello di Volpaia estate is one of the most remarkable wineries I have ever visited. Now, granted I was there in the off-season, but driving up the rather winding road to the hilltop enclave, it’s really not much more than a ring of buildings protecting the inner Castello, can leave you a little p...
