    The irony here is that Syrah’s origins could give Carmen Sandiego a run for her international wallet. Syrah’s deepest...

  • To welcome fall, and without a doubt the season has arrived, like clockwork, the moment our Labor Day weekend had wrapped up, I have always had a bit of a tradition of opening some Barbaresco. While my heart may belong to Barolo, the somewhat more elegant and more approachable wines of Barbaresco are perfect for times when you are looking for so... Read More

  • Guido Porro Barolo Vigna Lazzairasco 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Aromatically this is on tonight, huge roses, tar, some minty herbs, medicinal base notes and a sweet edge of carob all come together nicely. In the mouth this starts out a bit closed, but surprisingly elegant already. the tannins build with air as does the fruit, though for the most part this is built on a cleansing astringency and wonderful med...

  • While this tasting predates my tasting of 1980 Barolo by more than a year, I have been moved by the performance of those wines to publish these notes. As much a surprise as the 1980 horizontal, though for entirely different reasons, this is the tasting that set my expectations for the 1980 so terribly low. Prior to both tastings I had had enough...

  • So far I’ve worked my way through a pretty impressive set of wines that would make for some splendid gifting. I’ve covered Cabernet, Pinot Noir, the wines of France and today I turn my attention towards Italy. Without a doubt my favorite wine producing country; Italy is home to more variety and styles of wine than anyplace else on the planet. As... Read More

  • The winemaker/proprietor of Renard is Bayard Fox, who makes his living selling barrels to wineries.  I recently ran across his wines and was somewhat shocked that I had been beaten to the name--my Walter Mitty fantasy of being a grape farmer involves the word Renard, too.  He makes good Syrahs in a style that I like (note the absence of the word...

  • This is always one of the most difficult things I have to do each year. Sit down and try to figure out who will Snooth’s Winery of the year be?I'm never going to please everybody, or most  of the people even, but I try and select someone, or some winery that does two things. The first is to produce wines that I really like. Ha! Sorry about that ... Read More

  • I’ve already written up my thoughts on some white wines tasted while in Portugal this past summer. I wanted to get that information out in front of you while it was still most pertinent, hot, and sunny. Now as we transition to Autumn I want to give you the rundown on the red wines I enjoyed while in Portugal, wines that are well suited to the co... Read More

  • I’ve already written up the Grenache based wines I tasted during my time in Santa Barbara, they can be found here: Grenache - The Next Pinot Noir?  so today I am focusing on most of the remaining wines that I tasted while in the region. I’ll save the few Pinots I Tasted for a Pinot round-up, which might surprise some folks. You see I went to San... Read More

  • On my recent visit to Piedmont I included five producers in the neighboring village of Barbaresco since I've often given them short shrift. Known as the Queen of Nebbiolo, in contrast to Barolo the King, Barbaresco has a reputation for being a softer, more elegantly styled example of Nebbiolo. While this is undoubtedly true, the accompanying sen... Read More

  • I wrote yesterday about the 2009 vintage in Barolo and today I begin reporting on the wines tasted. with over 30 winery visits o the region last month there's a lot of wine to report on. I've included my notes below, broken down by visit in roughly chronological order. As you can see not everyone was able to present the 2009 Barolo for each of t... Read More
