  • An interesting article --http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/01/dining/kevin-pogue-seeks-washington-states-top-terroir.htmlI've yet to try any wines from Walla Walla -- simply not available here -- but keep reading about them.

  • Carnivores and grillers, a few reasons to love Syrah: it’s a fantastic wine for pairing with any roasted meats, especially red meats like beef and lamb, as well as wild game. It is often peppery and sometimes smoky, with a roasted fruit and/or roasted meat flavor profile that makes it a fine accompaniment to anything barbecued or grilled (even, ... Read More

  • Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More

  • Out of the way, down a drive lost in Spring Mountain, one comes upon Smith-Madrone, a winery that speaks as much of the past as the present. There’s a bit of a Twilight Zone feel here; it’s in a GPS black hole, and somehow it recalls the innocence of a simpler time. (“Willoughby, the next stop is Willoughby.”) Stuart and Charlie Smith play their... Read More

  • Noboleis Vineyards Vidal Blanc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Sometimes you just turn off the beaten path and try to find something different. While touring with friends who live in Augusta, Missouri, we came across a nice little winery called Noboleis (noble eyes) Vineyards. We tried many good wines here but left with Baril De Blanc which is a Vidal Blanc. This Vidal Blanc is barrel fermented and sur-lie ... Read More

  • A few days ago I tasted a wine that aged in cement. I looked for more information on aging wine in cement but I didn't find much. If someone can tell me more about the process of aging wine in cement (and the benefits of doing so) then I would very much appreciate it.The wine was a Montecucco DOC. You can find my tasting notes for it here. http:... Read More

  • OK, so we we're sitting here having an excellent filet of salmon, consuming a very nice Russian River pinot noir and started conversing about why is there such a wide disparity in the quality of pinot noirs.  Why is it that there are very few (if any) good inexpensive pinots?  Seems like we can find a halfway decent less expensive, chardonnay, c...

  • 5 Barrel Oak Winery Bowhaus Red 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A 2010 Red blend of Chambourcin, Merlot, Syrah and Malbec. Good opaque color with very tight rim variation. Dark fruit hints of cherry and blackberry with a mid-finish and fine acidity. Best served slightly chilled @ 62 degrees. Read More
