  • Had a great first full day here in south central California. Started off with a very good breakfast at the ForFriends B&B in Santa Ynez. Too early for any of the tasting rooms to be open so we headed down to Jalama beach for some salt air and scenery. Beautiful beach with some interesting campsites and about a half dozen surfers enjoying some mo... Read More

  • Blacksmith Merlot 2010


    The wine itself is a deep purple color in the glass, and the nose is just a beautiful combination of ripe berries and cassis, leather, dried herbs and just the faintest hint of mint. The taste is just Merlot joy! I know it has a bad reputation thanks to that idiot movie, but for those of us who appreciate a nice Merlot, it can be such a pleasu... Read More

  • Blacksmith Winery Syrah 2010

The taste was wonderfully fruit forward with tastes of blackberry and tart cherry, that gave way to some tar and cedar midpalate.

  • Forgeron Cellars Chardonnay Columbia Valley 2011


    The hot days and cool nights of the Columbia Valley produce grapes of exceptional flavor -- the hot days inspire the development of complex sugars while the cool nights yield crispness and acidity. Rated Excellent/Exceptional by the Washington Wine Report, this blend of 94% Chardonnay, 6% Orange Muscat, aged in a blend of new and used French oak... Read More

  • Outside of the pricey boutique wineries, who do you think consistently produces good wine year-after-year and represents good value? I'm thinking of the "larger" more established wine makers, who try and bring their A-game across the spectrum of their varietals.To me the sign of a good wine maker and overall brand is someone who you can trust ev...

  • I am hosting a Schreiner's Winers tasting Saturday and we're covering zins.  I was wondering what some Snooth favorites are.  I am looking to get 6-9 bottles from various areas and price ranges.  I already have a 2007 Plungerhead.  I was thinking something from Ridge?  Robert Biale?  Renwood, Ravenswood or Cosentino.  Thoughts?
