  • Good news! I've been invited to my first wine makers dinner! Needless to say, I'm excited about the opportunity. The dinner is going to be with Gilles Nicault from Long Shadows next week.Naturally I'll be doing my homework in advance to learn what I can and think about good questions I'd like to ask. I know that Long Shadows has been discussed h... Read More

  • Recently I was pleasantly surprised by a visit to Lodi, California. Long the source of well-priced, consumer friendly wines, not to mention the boost they give many of our favorite national brands, Lodi continues to work mostly off the center stage of wine in the USA. There are many reasons for this of course, from consumer preferences to the gr... Read More

  • Heritage Oak Zinfandel Lodi Block 14 2010


    Nice perfumey nose shows a bit of wood, with a nice briary and slightly peppery spice tone to the jammy blackberry fruit. This is big, broad, and fairly transparent in the mouth with nice depth to the lightly peppery, slightly candied black currant, blackberry fruit. The backend turns a little creamy with some wild cherry notes on the modest fi... Read More

  • Heritage Oak Chardonnay 2012


    Pear and sweet apple fruits greet the nose along with peach and almond aromas. This is medium bodied and a bit raw on the palate with apple fruit wrapped with a hint of creaminess in a clean finish that shows refreshing acids on the backend and a touch of apricot on the finish. A fruit driven style. 84pts Read More

  • Heritage Oak Sauvignon Blanc 2012


    Candied citrus on the nose is joined by aromas of fresh kiwi and melon with little suggestions of bay leaf and vanilla. This smells fruity yeasty. Theres good acid here lending freshness to the small citrus and green fruit flavors that are clean on the palate and show a touch of sweetness on the backend and through the modest finish. 83pts Read More

  • Heritage Oak Grenache Rose 2012


    Fruity on the nose with a lime undercurrent to the big strawberry aromas that are framed with a hint of herb. This is medium full bodied for a rose and while it shows a hint of alcohol it also delivers lots of bright tart strawberry fruit along with hints of little spice and a nice fresh watermelon tone on the moderately long finish. A fun ros... Read More

  • Pinot has been a much celebrated topic here on Snooth over the years I've participated, and it's obviously one of the more celebrated grapes in the wine world. It'll no doubt be a story line I plan on focusing on in years to come so I thought I'd start a thread, logging experiences. Sorry in advance, Greg T.Having said that, I've been mostly dis...

  • Like Zinfandel, Petite Sirah is primarily a California wine: the Golden State’s long, sunny growing seasons are necessary to ripen Petite Sirah’s substantial tannins and reveal its rich blackberry flavors. The wine’s structure, fruit and inky color make it an excellent blending partner for Zinfandel, red Rhône varieties and even Cabernet Sauvign... Read More

  • Those of my ilk tend to perpetuate certain notions. For example, the idea that smaller or newer is better, as if merely being either bestows some magical ability. It's a symptom of our society, with its 24-hour news cycle and instantaneous social declarations. It’s also a symptom of a wider problem, that of the irrelevant critic, remaining relev... Read More
