  • It’s not what you think it is, and I’m not sure what the producers think it should be. What it should be is a light wine, something really fresh and pretty, but at other times a bit darker with a lacy tannic appeal and subtle floral, mineral and spicy perfumes framing a gorgeous core of dark cherry fruit. It’s a wine that is decidedly at home in...

  • In the coming weeks I’ll be writing up my experiences at ProWein 2014, the great Wine and Spirits show held in Dusseldorf Germany each year. This trade show, and it is just that, exclusive to the trade and that rule is strictly enforced, is one of the great experiences wine professional can indulge in each year. This year’s edition of the fair w... Read More

  • Last week I wrote up some reviews on “value priced” Pinot Noir, and I received a few comments asking if it was worth spending a few more dollars on wines costing a bit more. It was a fair question, and one I myself had explored just a week or two early when I compared “value priced” Sauvignon Blancs with wines costing just a few dollars more. Th... Read More

  • Those of my ilk tend to perpetuate certain notions. For example, the idea that smaller or newer is better, as if merely being either bestows some magical ability. It's a symptom of our society, with its 24-hour news cycle and instantaneous social declarations. It’s also a symptom of a wider problem, that of the irrelevant critic, remaining relev... Read More

  • It’s the holiday season and everyone is recommending Pinot Noir again. What is it with folks, do they just like to take the path of least resistance? Will there come a day when Pinot is not the end all of holiday wine recommendations? Probably not. Lambrusco and Blaufrankisch have a whole set of issues that will prevent them from ever garnering ... Read More

  • Continuing my journey into Burg-Ville, and interest in the 2010's specifically, I figured why get buried in the sea of the "WDT?" thread.From the flight of 08-10 Burgundy I tasted earlier in the year to the 2010's I've had a chance to sample (having started hitting the shelves in force recently), it all seems to point to this being a stand-out v...

  • Quinta Do Encontro Vinho Tinto Bairrada 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Powerful vanilla and fudge scents on the nose with sweet roasted aromas of root vegetables and sun-dried tomato, topped with light oak tones and some sweet herbal accents. This is smooth as silk in the mouth with polished tannins and decent acidity keeping the dark, dried fruit flavors fairly fresh. There are hints of cedary spice over dried dat... Read More

  • Sometimes, I’m not exactly sure what my job is here at Snooth. I do get to review wine, which many people think is a glamorous and desirable thing to do. The truth is, it’s just a great vehicle for pissing people off. I can piss off producers by either not reviewing their wines or not reviewing their wines well, and I can piss off the consumers....

  • Sandeman Port Blend Porto 20 Year Old Tawny NV

    Snoothrank:

    We had this during the Virtual tasting along with a dessert potluck of Apple crisp, Strawberry nutella crepes, French silk chocolate pie, fresh baked muffins etc. Great fun!I learnt my lesson from the Vau, pouring only enough to taste. This was transparent brown and a smell of rum! It actually reminds me of my favorite Puerto Rican Rum, Ron del ... Read More

  • Vodopivec Vitoska Classica 2005

    Snoothrank:

    The nose was dark and inviting, showing pate sucree (sweet dough) and whole butter, but not from oak, followed by peach preserves and a dusting of confectioners sugar. On the palate, it was smooth as silk and balanced with flavors of nectarine, dried pit fruits and minerals. The finish was long and lush, as dried fruits and inner floral notes sl... Read More
