Basket Case Wines was started by Chenin and Sean Carlton in 2006. We've been doing the wine thing for a long time, and we've always felt the wine industry has done a lousy job of conveying a very simple truth: it's not about exclusivity, arrogance, elitism, or pomposity. Wine is about having fun. Though we can't make it any more simple than that, we can sure make it easier for you to enjoy than has previously been the case. We don't care what you drink, how you drink it, or whether or not you can put words to what you are tasting. DRINK WHAT YOU LIKE! That's all there is to it. – Description from mriskic

  • I love all wines and am happy to have found a great community in Snooth.  I had been living in Napa working for a food manufacturer and part time at a winery for fun.  I miss daily wine conversations.  Attached is a picture of 1998 Regusci Cab that I shared with a friend this weekend from my collection.  It was smooth with great fruit, just enou...

  • 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...

  • I plan on participating in the Lodi Virtual Tasting this week.  So, I figured that a good place to find the wines that are in the VT would be Total Wines. In fact, I did reasonably well and found 3 of the 4.  (Here's a PSA for VT participants.  No driving after this tasting.  The low ABV that I bought was 14.5.  The other two were over 15.)Well,...

  • Everywhere I turn, I see people talking about 2010 in the Rhone (both north and south).  Lately, I've been on a mission to taste a lot of these wines and so far I've found some good, some bad and some that really would be better poured over pancakes.  In some cases, I've agreed with some of the wines being pushed by the "wine critic illuminati"....

  • Sean, I was hoping on getting a couple of bottle of your wine [your choice] with your signature on them. I have a roast for Mike Jadrich [60th birthday] on November 19th so my window of opportunity is short. If you can't do it I would understand. If you can... six bottles of your choice... sign a couple of them. I will pay full price plus...
