  • Where you drink wine can be important. An overheated or too noisy room or city stress can downgrade the pleasures of even a very good wine.  Conversely, tranquility that allows you to focus on what’s in your glass can upgrade even a so-so sipper.

  • Predator Old Vine Zinfandel 2011


    Was recommended to me by a Wine consultant at Fred Meyer grocery. It's thunder on the mountain. Rich, hearty full of hickory, plum, vanilla and satisfying flavor. This is a $15 dollar wine and for the price it's an incredible deal. Will buy it always. Read More

Glad I bought this wine from the lovely owners of the winery many years ago. A small production winery, and not sure if they are still making wine today. Read More

  • Back in February, Mark posted a summary of Vertical vs. Horizontal wine tasting. It was a clear and concise description of both; so, I'm not going to steal his thunder by repeating anything he wrote. However, I will ask the Snooth team to "link it up," as the one and only Gary Vay-ner-chuk does many times in his daily video blogs. What I will... Read More
