  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • Okay, so are tannins sour or bitter?  I was in a pub at Sloan Square in London in '78 where I was served a "bitter" beer, and let me tell you, bitter was the right word for it!  I didn't want to insult anyone so I took it with me into the latrine and poured it down the drain.  I'm quite certain the bitter taste in a wine is not anywhere as sever...

  • In truth, I have no idea what any of those things are, except perhaps acidity, and to me that just means "a sharp, sour taste."  I rarely drink whites, as they seem to have very little flavor.  Remember, without a nose, any taste is extremely bland.  My preference for the wines of Argentina and Chile was just the luck of the draw when I was gift...

  • Okay, I have no idea how to do this.  I posted what I thought was an intro a week or two ago and I cannot find either my post or any of whatever replies there might have been.  Computers and the arcane rituals one has to perform in order to make sense of any of this crap are an absolute mystery to me.  I am a MENSA member so I know perfectly wel...

  • Dry Creek Vineyard Heritage Vines Sonoma Zinfandel 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Boy was this good. Dry Creek has mastered zins over the years and Heritage Vineyards has some of the best zin stock ever. Dense, black and brooding this exudes varietal excitement. Blackberry, damson plum, oak, pepper, spice and briary notes lead to a palate that follows the nose well. This leads to a medium to full bodied tannic structure that ... Read More

  • Those who know Riesling intimately, and drink it often, can argue that the top Rieslings are some of the greatest white wines in the world. It is interesting to think about its greatness in comparison to another top white variety – Chardonnay. Chardonnay is a chameleon, having a great affinity for expressing winemaking techniques and terroir whi... Read More

  • I was served Oak Creek Sweet White a few weeks ago during a dinner invitation. I cannot drink reds and haven't found many whites that I do like. While on vacation, my husband and I searched for Oak Creek in great hopes we would be able to find the sweet white. My state, Oklahoma, does not supply it. Arkansas, Missouri nor Texas are able to sell...

  • Had a very disappointing experience today. In attempting to remove the cork from a bottle of Oak Creek White Zinfadel a piece of the neck broke. After much deliberation I had took said bottle to my neighbor who removed the cork but with a larger piece of the neck breaking off. The foil wrapper indicated lighter glass for a friendly footprint...
