  • The India Pale Ale, known as IPA, is the most popular craft beer style being produced in America today. To enjoy the hop forward ale – often happily described as bitter - is a badge of honor to some beer drinkers. Trends and fads come and go throughout the beverage industry, but IPA is, apparently, here to stay. But if you spend some time in bee... Read More

  • It's not exactly a breath freshener. This past week Lithuania-based advertiser McCann Vilnius launched a line of wine called “Bouche bée” –  French for “wide mouth”. The wine comes in tiny spray bottles more popularly used for breath freshening products. “The best mouth freshener of all time is here,” McCann Vilnius' Facebook page stated in a No... Read More

  • I'm wondering if any fellow Snooth forum members know how to tell if a case of wine got too cold during shipment.  Specifically, I want to know if the bottles were actually frozen for a period of time during their transit from California to Virginia.  This recent cold weather snap has me concerned about a case of wine we are expecting very short...

  • Okay, I'm providing wine for my family (or I hope so, or I won't have anything that I like to drink) and I strongly recommend a cabernet franc from the Loire.  Chinon, Bourgeuil, or St. Nicholas de Bourgeuil are often very reasonable, they go well with the gamier aspects of the dark meat and many sides, nice cleansing acidity... and very good ex...

  • After last week’s disappointing look at value priced Zinfandel you would be right to think that this week’s take on value priced Syrah, with a focus on Australian Shiraz, might produce equally horrifying results. After all if there was a poster child for big, oaky, goopy, and slightly sweet wines in the marketplace Aussie Shiraz certainly would ... Read More
