  • Nice one, VV, apparently the only Ribolla Gialla grapes, but not the only wine ... someone drinking maybe the Forlorn Hope version at Tra Vigne a couple years ago.  I had some by the glass somewhere else.  Here's a cool story about that vineyard and a little festival the makers of RG have every year.  It's a couple years old, so who know if th...

  • Thought I'd start a topic to see what "different" wines people are drinking. I've been on a hunt to find wines made from lesser known grapes or from unusual areas. Here's one of each.This is a rose made from Cinsault, not too unusual right? Well this is from the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon. Either they don't make very good wine in Lebanon or this bo... Read More

  • California, the land of sunshine, free spirits, and big wines. Right? Yes, of ... ... Rorick, producer of the Forlorn Hope wines. “I’m not trying to make low alcohol wines, I’m just trying to make wines without adds (additions).” This mentality, one that does return to an earlier time when wine was made from grapes and didn’t include addition...

Perhaps a bit short on the palate, and a bit simple, this does show nuanced and... Read More

  • Forlorn Hope Gewürztraminer the Faufreluches Russian River Valley 2012

Deeply aromatic in the mouth as well this displays lovely honeycomb, heather and pineapple flavors. Dry on the palate and with plenty of tannin providing real mouth grab this is ... Read More

  • Forlorn Hope l'Asino Santo Barbera Shake Ridge Vineyard Amador 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Same exact wine as 2012 San Hercumer Barbera Shake Ridge Vineyard Amador but no sulphur added Inky, earthy, darkly fruited and spicy on the nose. Another take on classic Barbera with some VA adding lift and underlying shale like aromas shale. This has a sweet/savory thing going on with handfuls of tobacco laced fruit on the palate and powerful a... Read More
