  • It was at Vinify Wine Service in Santa Rosa Calif which is a custom crush facility where many small Sonoma County Boutique wineries make their wares. 19 wine makers pouring 72 different bottlings. Made it about 2/3 through the presentation before I started getting palate fatigue and everything started tasting alike. Lots of good Pinots, a couple... Read More

  • We began this day wanting to explore more of the Silverado Trail.  Stops in Cliff Lede, Robert Sinskey and Stags Leap Wine Cellars were nice to see, but we did not taste here.  I have had most of the Lede and SLWC wines on the list, so I didn't see a point in tasting there.  All of them want $25 or more for a tasting and they don't even pour tha...

  • In California’s hyper-competitive wine world, it pays to have an advantage. Some producers try and spread their weight around by offering every wine under the sun. Others focus on doing a few things and doing them well. Patz & Hall has chosen the latter route, and this group of four friends has found that crafting distinctive Chardonnay and, per... Read More

  • 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

  • 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
