  • Spell Nichole's Blend Sonoma County Pinot Noir 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The fruit for the 2012 Nicholes Blend, a California Pinot Noir wine comes from the DeVoto, Hurst and Lorenzo Vineyards as well as declassified barrels our Vineyard Designated wines. From as far south as the Petaluma Gap, where the cold maritime breezes help to produce wines of excellent purity and elegance; to the East on top of Sonoma Mountain,... Read More

  • Yes it was the old purple label Moon Mountain.  Invino.com had a huge Moon Mountain sellout a couple years ago and we almost drowned in it.  I think we bought like 15 cases in all.  It was all very good.  Zins, Francs, Syrahs, Cabs, and the Petite Verdot/Cab was especially good.  They ranged from $10 to $14 and from 2001 to 2007 vintages.  I wis...

  • I began my wine journey mining for hidden gems in little known regions along the east coast of the United States. A common response to many of the wines I shared and wrote about back then went something like this; “What, they make wine there?” In fact, wine is produced in all 50 states, but many people can count on one hand the wines they have t...

  • Napa Valley grape growers and winemakers wore out their worry beads in 2011. Rain came early, often and didn’t want to go away. It was a cool year as well, forcing winemakers to spend even more time walking the vineyards than usual. Napa Valley is accustomed to dry, warm, sunny growing seasons. It’s Cabernet Sauvignon wines are widely known for ... Read More

  • I was wondering what sort of new topic I could start that would pair nicely with my previous posting 'Weekday Wines'; well here it is - Weekend Wines.  Sometimes I just have to stop and take a minute to pat myself on the back for my quick wit but alas, this isn't one of those times.  Anyway, why not talk about wines we enjoy on weekends?  These ...

  • Chappellet Signature Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Bluish-purple in the glass. Very much a viney nose. Very pleasant on the tongue. Some blackberry/blueberry fruit flavors. Sturdy tannin, but not like many others (e.g., Spring Mountain AVA). US$44.99 at Total Wine in 2013. Read More

  • Chateau Chevalier Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain District 2007

    Snoothrank:

    "Thick-looking" purple in the glass. Somewhat volatile nose, also some woody, olivy nose things. Initial palate shows more fruit--blackberry, cassis--than most Spring Mountain Cabernets. Also, not as much tannin as other Spring Mountain examples I have tried. Very nice tartness from acid makes this an easy drinker--not as big as most Napa Ca... Read More
