  • 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

  • Skeptical I recently visited the Napa Valley for the first time in about three years. Like many wine geeks, I’m jaded when it comes to Napa Valley wines, almost programed to dismiss them based on their success. You see, to be a true wine geek has somehow morphed into cultivating an exclusive appreciation of obscure wines. Orange wines? Bring the... Read More

  • I‘ve recently been tasting through recent Cabernet releases from the Napa Valley and have been struck by the appeal of many of the wines. This is due in small part to the string of vintages, cooler than typical, that winemakers have recently been working with. But there might be more to it than that. I’ve written up my thoughts on the matter and... Read More

  • France may have established that the grapes of Bordeaux go very well together, but that essential blend can now be found in excellent wines worldwide, from South Africa to Washington State.California does particularly well with the black grapes of Bordeaux: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. California Bordeaux ... Read More

  • I just finished reading 10 pages of very interesting, insightful and articulate posts about the perceived demise of California Cabernet Sauvignon. There was a lot of data contributing to the perception that California is in the middle of a high alcohol "fruit bomb" era.I'm not going to pretend to be Robert Parker Jr., James Laube or even several...

  • Mount Brown Riesling Waipara 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Colour: very light, with a slight hew of yellowy green. Typical for age and grape.Nose: sharp, clean, green apple, with residual apricot. Quite alcoholic -- somewhat upfront, be relatively tame.Taste: alcohol completely subsides once wine hits the tongue, resulting in a near-perfect balace of acidity. The acid just catches (a touch) at the back ... Read More

  • Mount Brown Riesling Waipara 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Crisp lime and fresh pineapple fruit. Ever-so-slight hint of kerosene on the nose. A long finish. Satisfyingly mouthfilling but not as intense as some NZ sauvignon. Read More

  • Mount Brown Waipara Valley Pinot Noir 2008

    Snoothrank:

    An intensely savoury, earthy, Burgundian style. Cherry fruit and a smidge of Cola, but far from sweet. One of the best New World pinots I have had in ages. Read More

  • Well it's official. I'll be going to Napa from July 6th through the 10th for my first official vacation for over three years. Got a sweet room at a place in St. Helena and I'm looking for recommendations of what the best places are to taste. I plan on spending at least two days in the Valley tasting, with a day trip out to Santa Cruz mountain... Read More
