USA Wine

"American Wine" has existed since the first Europeans brought their vinous heritage and traditions to these shores from the Old World. In that sense, Appellation America is over 400 years old. American wine has endured ecological, political and social hardships over the centuries, but it has evolved with each challenge.
       Up to the late 1800s, the vine thrived in America, with the epicenter of winemaking in the Midwest along the banks of the Ohio River and shores of Lake Erie. At the turn of the last century phylloxera and Prohibition would together transform the viticultural landscape of America. In the 20th century, California would emerge as America’s dominate wine state (now producing 90% of the national total), but by the dawn of the 21st century winemaking would spread to every state in the union, with grapes grown in all but four. Across the 50 states exists the world's greatest diversity of climates, and virtually every species of vine can find a niche somewhere Read more »

  • Idaho is emerging as part of the new frontier for wine making, with 38 total wineries. From a geographical standpoint, the state has ideal growing conditions. Vinifera, or wine grapes, actually thrive in the distinctly four-season climate. Snake River Valley's lack of rainfall is also considered a plus, since potentially ruinous precipitation i...

  • Kendall-Jackson Chardonnay Grand Reserve California 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Pours a honey lemon color....showing its age with the lovely deepening of shade.....nice and clear, and perhaps a touch of chill hazing going on. The aromas are of lush tropical fruits (pineapple, mango, muted banana), baked orchard fruits (pear/apple), buttery notes and smooth vanilla oak. Flavors that are superior, with gentle cooked buttere... Read More

  • Carlisle Monte Rosso Vineyard Zinfandel 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely plum color in the glass. Nuanced berry nose. On the tip of the tongue, I get some blackberry but, also, some savoriness. Interestingly, as the wine passes back I get more fruit that seems to also have more sweetness and more tartness. Some minerality. Tannin is quite sedate. A nice mouth-filling wine. Read More

  • Bedrock Wine Co. Shake Ridge Ranch Barbera 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Medium-bodied wine with a "thin" mouthfeel. Big red fruit on entry--cherry, raspberry. A bit spritzy suggesting acid, but that doesn't seem to show up with tartness in the fruit. Some minerality or steeliness. An OK, but not complex, at all. Read More

  • Hahn Pinot Noir Monterey County 2017

    Snoothrank:

    Coloration is fairly brilliant cherry/cranberry, looks to be quite clear, with rustic hues around the rim. Aromas that are fruit forward....cherry, toasty oak, tobacco leaf, wet leather, honey molasses bbq sauce richness and a muted cinnamon, nutmeg/mace & pepper spice. Flavors are pretty straight up of field berries (cherry, blueberry, raspbe... Read More

  • Patz & Hall Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Bright ruby red in color. Quite fruity and a bit alcoholic on the nose. Sour cherries on the palate with a medium finish. I though it was a bit simple pop and pour but developed nicely with some air showing it quality. Read More

  • Halcon Elevacion 2017

    Snoothrank:

    A quite restrained wine that opens with just a suggestion of blackberries. Intrestingly, I am getting a lot of earthiness. A lot of acid spritz on the edges of the tongue. A very good wine today that will be better in the coming years. Read More

  • Another area that doesnt get enough credit is South West Colorado. They make some really good wines. I really suggest checking them out. There is actualy a long history of wineries in Colorado before prohibition, but most wineries ripped out the vines to replace them with fruit trees to make money.
