Claret on Snooth

  • Glad to see that hock (riesling) hasn't shot through the roof in the manner of claret (Bordeaux) and Burgundy and even Rhone prices in recent years. The following are excellent bottles of wine, and even HDH (which last decade was a source of hard-to-find bottles at reasonable prices, but this decade is using rocket-fuel rather than wine to fuel ...

  • DM, thank you for the response to my question.  I'm not sure I ... ... had a big dose of it in that Claret that I finished off, last night.)  So, there is some crunchiness in my glass of wine.  Big deal.I see this topic as being similar to the aeration thing.  I would like to see some scientific research into it, but, for one reason or other, ...

  • DM - Thanks for the info on the Claret wines - I heard something similar to that on one of the wine tours we had in Virginia (it was likely to have been Linden).  And that Navarro is quite nice.  We found that winery on our first tour of Somona / Napa / Anderson Valleys back in 2012 (http://www.bigal-computers.net/wine-country.php).  The owner g...

  • Steltzner Vineyards Red Bordeaux Blend Napa Valley Claret 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice purply color. Oaky, woody nose. Disappointingly light on initial introduction to the tonguealmost watery. As the wine passes over the tongue, and past the palate, though, blackberry and currant flavors can be detected. Then, there is a big hit of tanninvery drying on the tongue. I think that as this wine warms (I just pulled it ou... Read More

  • Continuing the quest to thin out the stock.  (It's a dirty job, but ... ... seems to fit the "Claret" description--closer to medium- rather than full-bodied.  Not terribly fruity.  As the wine travels to the back of the tongue you get the full effect of tannin.   The more I taste it, the better I like it.  We're having hamburgers, tonight, an...

  • Oh, a Claret.  I've had a few of those Claret wines, and they've all been decent as far as my taste buds are concerned.  In our cellar we had a Claret wine from Linden Vineyards in Virginia, but we drank it.  We still have a 2009 Hardscrabble from Linden Vineyards though.  http://www.virginiawinetime.com/tag/linden-vineyards/ Read More

  • Kopke Vintage Port 1985

    Snoothrank:

    Very interesting, this is a vintage Ruby Port. With age, this type goes from the deep Ruby/Claret color to more faded, thin, and tawny color. Wasn't quite expecting this one to be changed that much, so it was unexpected to say the least, to see it in the glass and then find that this Port tasted more like a Tawny, sweet, raisin, carmel, and nut...

    Wine review by puhnner


  • When we talk about Zinfandel we often tend to focus on those most familiar to ... a rose, Beaujolais style, Claret style, Zin berry fruit bomb, or dessert wine with Zinfandel. Today’s popular styles tend to be on the fruit forward side of things, though slowly I think we are seeing a retrenchment from that posture. It’s a slow process of cours... Read More

  • Steele Zinfandel Dupratt Vineyard Mendocino 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Super spicy nose on the nose which shows a little caramel oak influence and ... is understated, classic old Claret style Zinfandel with hints of pepper and spice slowly adding detail to the fresh fruit and cedar accents. This should improve with age. 89p Read More

    Wine review by Gregory Dal Piaz


  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...
