Red Brick on Snooth

  • Yesterday was spent almost entirely in Washington DC; we headed out at 1 PM on the Metro to have lunch at Oceanaire, a fine seafood restaurant near the White House.  After that it was a short walk to the Renwick Gallery, which just opened again on this Friday the 13th with a new exhibit of modern art.  Soon it was time to head out again, this ti...

  • Fattoria Dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2008


    Slight brick color in the glass. This is not bricking that I might associate with an older wine that had been exposed to oxygen. Thats just the color that it is. Fairly sedate wine that does not assault the tongue with fruit flavors. There is a hint of red berry fruit, but that is it. I do get something of a licorice hint. Very nice. Tart... Read More

  • Greg is certainly a very knowledgeable contributor on multiple boards.  I don't know if anybody has noticed, though, but he is also a bit opinionated.  ;-)Personally, I am OK with Blue (Bleu. Roquefort, Stilton, Gorgonzola, Humboldt Fog) Cheese with most full-bodied red wines. However, you just cannot beat any of those with Sauternes -- or, I as... Read More

  • Château Haut-Batailley Red Bordeaux Blend Pauillac 2006


    This 2006 Pauillac was cellared prudently for 6 years, and appears to have peaked. The colour has become brick red, with a scent redolent of cranberry, blackberry confit and a hint of spicy cedar. On the palate, there is a bit of vanilla overlay and just a pleasant, faint hint of oak with cassis (current) and blackberry dominating the fruit. ... Read More

  • Come on, guys, stop making excuses for a supply chain with hiccups. It *is* *also* FedEx's 'fault', though not on the delivery person level. Their planning and practices units back at headquarters need to set specs in such ways that semi-perishables like wine are not left in a truck for days during the summer. Period. FedEx has always had a numb... Read More

  • I'm a long-time lurker (and appreciator) of this forum, but this is my first post.  Thanks, in advance, for your help, and for all of the other good advice I've found here in the past.LAST WEEKI got a fantastic deal on a 1995 bottle from what I believed (and still believe, I hope) to be a reputable online seller.  Here are the photos that accomp...

  • Actually, we had rose, too, from Campuget, last night.  It was somewhere between rose weather and not,  which makes sense:  I am on the Bay, OT is on the River and gets a lot of ocean influence this time of year, and NG is in the inland part of the county I live in, where it's much hotter and drier. Tonight I am drinking a 2004 Barolo, which is ...

  • I’m part Irish, but I’m not sure how much. I’m not Catholic and my surname is decidedly English. But the family tree has branches throughout the British Isles and I sit here today with blond hair, a red beard, freckles, and the inability to get a tan. On top of that, my grandmother plays about a dozen instruments and has often gone to Ireland to... Read More

    From the article Switch Things Up: St. Patrick's Day Wines

  • Yes, there's a ton of different shades of red: burgundy being one of them. I think the color burgundy can be a good word to describe many different reds, but you could expand on the word burgundy by using words such as ruby or garnet. I would not use the word burgundy to describe deep, dark, opaque wines. It falls into a different color spectrum... Read More

    Forum post in the topic Pahrump Valley Winery (Nevada)

  • Made a trip to Pahrump Nevada today to play a round of golf with my friends at Mountain Falls GC. Amazing course! Rated #1 in Nevada and the #7 public course in America. Who would have thought a course that nice could be located smack dab in the middle of basically no-mans land.Because the trip is 45 minutes from Vegas, I decided to visit the wi... Read More
