  • Recent research shows that a glass of red wine a day is like twenty minutes of vigorous exercise. So before summer rosés officially take hold, get in on the last gasps of Cabernet. I tasted through forty different Cabernets, all under $16. There are some superb examples here that you’re going to want to try. Cabernet, because of the value inhere... Read More

  • So what’s not to like? 2010 Barolo is in the hype machine right now and as much as i would like to say that they hype machine is in overdrive, which it perennially is, this is one time where much might be warranted. that’s not to say that 2010 is a universally fabulous vintage. It simply is not with more than a handful of wines showing under-rip... Read More

  • Distant Bay Merlot 2004


    Over the years, my husband and I have tried countless merlots of various labels and vintages, but were never, ever impressed with anything. Yet, we kept trying, because of all the "press." Finally, in late 2010, we stumbled upon a bottle of DB and both of us became instant fans! Our dinner guests also raved over it. So much so, that later, w... Read More

  • Hi everybody, this is my first post on SnoothI was wondering if anyone had an opinion on the effects of proximity to the ocean for changing characteristics of wine. Does it have similar effects, even in different parts of the world? For example, grapes grown from Sancerre to Muscadet in the Loire valley demonstrating similar changes to character... Read More
