  • Gwen, I agree that the BV Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon is a good wine--and 2010 is an excellent vintage year.  So, you can't hardly go wrong with your choice.Darren is a recent Snoother, and he has made some excellent suggestions regarding Italian wines.  I am a California bigot, but there is no denying the greatness if Italian wines--both in j...

  • I started this article thinking of pitting Washington State Merlot, arguably the state's most successful varietal wine, against those from California, and to an extent that is what I have done, at multiple price points between $20 and $40. But this exercise turned into something a bit more interesting. It illuminated a few of the basic tenets of... Read More

  • I quite enjoy the Snooth Virtual Tastings.  It's been a while since I joined in the live event, because (I can't believe a retired person has this problem.) of schedule conflicts.  Even when I don't participate in the live event, I make time to view the archived recording.So, I was pleased to see that I had no conflict for the next VT--La Crema ...

  • I ran up to Napa for a few days to get away and taste some wines from places I'd never been (most of them).  I went during BottleRock Napa, but alas, didn't partake in an y of those festivities.  Some great finds, so I have listed/linked any of the wines I rated over 90 points, should anyone have interest, or their own thoughts on the wines. Wit...

  • In 2004, the movie Sideways put a major dent in California Merlot sales when Miles uttered the immortal words “I am not drinking fucking Merlot!” At that point there were a lot of ripe, insipid Merlots on the market—many grown in areas that were too hot for the grape to ripen slowly, gaining full physiological maturity—so Miles’ sentiments reson...

  • 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
