  • Substantial? Go to the market right now and I dare you to find three, strike that two different Viogniers on the shelf. I know of only a handful out of the hundreds of wineries in Sonoma County who bottle a stand alone Viognier. The only one drinkable so far has been the Jemrose Egret Pond. Every one of the wineries last night made a Viognier. I... Read More

  • Double Dog Dare Cabernet Cabernet Sauvignon Other California NV

    Snoothrank:

Having said that they also generally require a fair amount of cellaring, which can pose a problem for pouring whatever vintage is on the shelves at this moment. Here is a very brief rundown of vintages to help guide yo... Read More

  • Finca Los Olmos Mountain Door Malbec 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This is a hedonistic fruit bomb if I've ever had one. The nose is plum and dark ... and Italian sausage, and I'd dare say this gives many Italian wines a run for their money with this style food. I'd recommend this with anything tomato, beef, or pork Read More

  • Dare Viader Cabernet Franc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Red berry and floral notes on the nose and jammy ripe red fruit with vanilla and black pepper on the palate. Very good! Read More
