  • Moving off a previous topic, I'm starting a new one that is about favourite Sonoma Chardonnays. I will kick things off with my favourites in a few different price ranges:Under $20 range- La Crema Monterey Chardonnay - newer wine for them but nice after a bit of time in the bottle. Not a lot of time but a couple of months:http://www.snooth.com/... Read More

  • As I had mentioned a while back I am making some wine this year and this means for a short period of time I need to be in Sonoma a lot. I need to be there to see what is going on, do punch downs and take readings on the wine. Harvest is a busy time but if you are only doing work on one ton of grapes there isnt a lot to do. This means I find m... Read More

    Wine review by thechosen1


  • Since this subject never gets discussed on Snooth, I'm throwing out a challenge regarding New World sparkling wines. What are the sparkling wines we've found from the New World that are as good as, or in many cases better than large batches of the Champagnes, Proseccos, Cavas, etc. from Europe? I'm most familiar with the offerings from Californi... Read More

  • I know a good majority of Ports are from grapes like Zin, Cab, Grand Noir, muscat, etc, but what of some of these "newer wines" that are taking stage in the recent decades? Grapes with heavy heat, jam, fruit, and dark spices and earth. Are there are ports out there that utilize Malbec, Carmenere, etc? I think something like these wines, fortif... Read More

  • A friend's birthday dinner tonight at a steakhouse. A couple of us are bringing the wines and I'm trying to figure out the best order to pour them.
