Young's is one of the first vineyards you come to after turning onto Shenandoah Road in Plymouth. Over the years we have become an essential stop for a growing group of enthusiastic fans of our celebrated Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Sangiovese and Barbera. Young’s also offers a superb Roussanne. “Young’s Barbera is best in class,” says Rocklin landscape designer Scott Jardine. “All their wines are top drawer – they rival anything out of the Napa Valley.” Scott and several of his friends have been making annual jaunts to Shenandoah Valley to buy their favorite Young’s wine by the case. When we purchased the Property in 1992, there was an operating winery producing 1,000 cases of wine with seven acres of grapes. Today, production has increased to 6,000 cases and the place has expanded to 30 acres, including 10 acres of lawns, gardens and picnic grounds surrounding a tranquil pond.

  • I don’t do Syrah justice on these pages.Coming from around the world, the wines often do not get the distribution they need because of a soft market. On the other hand, Northern Rhone reds, which are either completely Syrah or predominantly Syrah, are bought up quite quickly. This shows a continued enthusiasm for the market segment and makes rev... Read More

  • I noticed that OutThere purchased seven bottles of a particular wine at $14 and it occurred to me that it was a $100 purchase, and enough to last about a week.  So I got curious, and mentioned in the thread that it would be interesting to know how much per week people spent.  Well, Emark has better records and more time on his hands than I do, a...

Cayuse, Quilceda Creek, Leonetti all occupy the top 3 spots, followed by a few mid tier standards like Betz, Reynvaan, Maison Bleue, Grammercy. Well, I should say I'm just starting to get to know these names and also starting to buy ...

  • In my daily travels I pass through the Napa Valley every Monday. A few weeks ago I asked Mike Smith a question about yeast for Sauv Blanc and he invited me to stop by and check out some of his new vintage before it went into bottle shock. Today was the day so I stopped by his cellar at Envy Wines in Calistoga. One of the more personable, down to... Read More

  • I am Jake Pippin, a wine lover, wine explorer, newly a New Yorker and I have a question. Are Chilean wines on the rise, slowing and steadily gaining momentum and a foot hold in the US or is it new, catchy, the wine of the hour and likely to fade away? I want to know what Snooth members think.Do you see Chilean wines on restaurant lists, by the g... Read More

  • The wine term "dry" seems to have been misconstrued from its technical scientific definition as being the opposite of sweet, meaning there is no perceptible residual sugar in the wine. More often than not, I hear wine drinkers describe a wine with aggressive tannins as being dry, without knowing that dryness actually refers to the lack of sweetn... Read More
