  • It’s the holiday season and everyone is recommending Pinot Noir again. What is it with folks, do they just like to take the path of least resistance? Will there come a day when Pinot is not the end all of holiday wine recommendations? Probably not. Lambrusco and Blaufrankisch have a whole set of issues that will prevent them from ever garnering ... Read More

  • Poderi Luigi Einaudi Barolo Nei Cannubi 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Tasting through the wines of Poderi Einaudi in Dogliani with the convivial and charming Matteo Sardagna is a job I could look forward to year after year. As great grandson of the highly respected first president of Italy, Matteo wears many hats and has a strong grasp on managing every aspect of this venerable, historic winery. While best known f...

  • There hasn't been one of these threads here in quite some time so I thought I'd start it up again. Weather is warm here so I popped a Rosé.What are you drinking? Read More

  • As many of my fellow Snoothers know, I'm a big fan of the wines of the Dry Creek Valley and particularly of a few of the winemakers up there.  Most of them specialize to a degree in Zinfandel, a grape that has its hard-core fans, but does not get all the recognition of more widely-planted varieties like Cabernet, Syrah, Pinot Noir.  A lot of fol...

  • Rizzi Barbaresco Boito 2006

    Snoothrank:

    After tasting about 15 different wines, I ended with this. At this point it was hard for me to pinpoint aromas and flavors but this wine was the one that definitely WOWED me. A bit more masculine, muscular, powerful. Can be aged up to 20 years I think!The Boito Cru is almost like a Grand Cru within the existing Rizzi Cru. It is a "Bricco" which ... Read More

    Wine review by Anna Savino


  • I generally avoid wine clubs of any sort, even at my favorite wineries--I'm too promiscuous to sign up to drink 12 or 24 botles of someone's wine in a year--but I am a member of Mauritson's Rockpile list, because there's no longer any way to get the Cemetery Zinfandel and good luck getting any of the others, either.  Since I have in-laws up that...

  • Erzeti Merlot Amphora 2000. Purchased fall of 2005. Cost: some number of euros. Dobrovo Castle – Brda Vinoteka, Slovenia.

  • Steve Edmunds is one of our favorite wine producers and possibly one of the sweetest guys in the industry. His wine, under the label Edmunds St. John, defies preconceived notions. It is un-spoofulated Calfornian wine and it is a négociant wine with integrity. The wines are balanced, delicious and offer an unadorned taste of place. On the homepag... Read More

  • I have had a general dislike for syrahs for several years now... they just seem too BIG for me, and my tastes have changed toward lighter-style wines.  However I have discovered that there are some syrahs that I very much enjoy..  Recently, I was on my way up to Russian River.  I stopped in at Taft Street Winery in Sebastopol, www.taftstreetwine...

  •  OK, add together Parker's influence over the past decade or two, Chinese money over the past few years, and a little bit of marketing acumen by LVMH, the Bordelaise and even the odd Southern Californian. What results? Hopefully a bubble in prices that can't continue indefinitely, after an event like the likely Chinese bubble burst within a coup... Read More
