I am new to Snooth but not so new to wine - drinking, not so much "tasting". Can you share some of the elements that determine wine pricing? Curious. Anyone with thoughts, ideas, facts, please share. Thank you! Read More
What a pleasure it is to be able to drink something this old - you really get to taste the nuances of this wine at this age - sure most of the fruit is gone but unveiled are many subtle earthy and some barn yard notes which is lovely - great acidity and was a compliment to such a wonderful occasion Read More
I am not a mathematician but I wonder if there is a formula to obtain a value rate using price and scores (100/100). I.e. Wine A costs $20 and gets a score of 90 points and Wine B costs $45 and gets a score of 90 points as well; is there a formula that can tell me (mathematically) that the value of Wine A is higher?I am sure one of you may have ...

The subject says it all. My wife, her parents and myself will be staying in Napa for a week starting Sunday. My Father in Law is in to that jammy, over-extracted style of zin. His favorite as of yet is Rombauer, but I thought I'd hop on here and see if anyone could point me in the direction of some others that have similar characteristics. U... Read More

Purchased a few bottles of the 97 at Bottle Barn, Santa Rosa in 2002. Tasted numerous times over 7 years. Most recent, 6/09. 12 years old and still showing well. Amazing. Wonderful dried fruit on nose, moderate oak, nice mouth feel and tasty, soft finish. I have had many more expensive cabernets that fell flat after 12 years. This is a killer wi... Read More
Well the 2005 Barolos are tasted, and I cant help but think back to what I said last year. 2005 is a successful vintage that reflects terroir and winemaking more than weather and will need more time to be as approachable as 2004.This years tasting was a mixed crop and a challenge. Many of the wines suffered from one defect or another, be those ... Read More

AWE blind tasting - coffee candy, yuck, dirties up a bit, gains some nice old school notes, with a touch of oxidation showing, turning minty, dusty and old wood like, smells vaguely like a barn, loose up front but then showing some nice sweet/spicy fruitiness, theres some cola, almost new world flavors here but there is this weird dichotomy betw...
