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...

    Forum post in the topic Hello Snooth!

  • 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"....

With the release of Slow Wine and the Slow Wine tasting event and press conference in NYC, we now have all the answers.Essentially, Slow Food and Gambero Rosso went their separate ways over their differing set...

  • I recently heard that in addition to its contribution to the flavor and complexity of wines, that oak was also an effective anti-oxidant, helping the wine to age gracefully for longer periods of time. Also, that sediment in older wines had to do with the oak.It prompted me to search for some additional articles or info on oak. Found this random ... Read More
