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...

  • Hartwell Estate Miste Hill Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Enjoyable, albeit, chewy wine. Dark fruit--blackberry more than currant--with a slight tang. Some suggestion of anise. Tannins are almost completely resolved. Not the longest finish in the world, but just so easy to enjoy. Read More

  • Silverlake Columbia Valley Cabernet/Merlot 1998

It is a blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% merlot. I started it last night with my supper of meat pie. There is certainly plenty of fresh bla... Read More

  • Silverado Vineyards Merlot Mt George Napa Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Lots of red fruit, on entry--strawberry, cherry. Negligible tannin and acid. Moderate body. It doesn't suck, but, for the price, it is a bit disappointing. It just tastes like grape juice, not wine, Read More

  • Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Great little wine. Review to follow... Notes of celery, strawberry confit and perhaps a touch of raspberry - depending on the moment. Entry is silky smooth, like a fine Beaune; there is strawberry (though slightly muted) and more vegetable notes like celery stalk - topped off with a sprinkle of vanilla. This mature, well-made PN only needs a ... Read More

  • Bedrock Wine Co. Limerick Lane Vineyard Zinfandel 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice refreshing wine. Not too heavy on the red fruit on entry. Some spice--clove. Not terribly full-bodied. Most tannins. Very nice tart acid. Something of a retro-nasal red cherry sensation. 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.
