  • You can't tell by looking at it that your favorite wine is about to betray you. You didn't do anything wrong. You fought your way through rush hour crowds to procure it, you chose a food pairing that's a love letter to its aromas and curves.But when you go to have that first glass of it, annoyance strikes. The cork snaps off in the neck, or wors... Read More

  • Heitz Grignolino 2000

    Snoothrank:

    This was given to me by my brother-in-law who found it in an estate. I have no reason to believe that this wine was stored in anything like preferred conditions. However, the bottle looked great and the fill looked good. The cork crumbled when I pulled it. So, that was not a good sign. However, the color in the glass was good--red plum with... Read More

  • Grand Vin de Chateau Latour 1974

    Snoothrank:

    Gift from an exceptional friend. Just dumbfounded. Never had a wine from a first growth French Vineyard before. Uncorked the bottle at my eldest granddaughters first communion party in Texas. After 44 years the cork had almost bled through and it broke upon opening. I decanted it and aerated it. Almost no sediment in the bottle. The wine was an... Read More

  • Over the years I have posted here on Snooth about wines that my brother-in-law has found in the course of his business of the disposition of estates.  Last weekend he gave me a stash that looked like it might have some potential.  The first three that I opened did not really make the grade.1995 Alexander Valley Bordeaux Blend-- knew this one was...

  • This Topic is partially intended to start a new thread on daily wine drinking as the earlier topics are just too long and too general.  How about telling us more about your choices and helping me start a new thread for the next generation, so to speak?  The "why" is the interesting part for some of us - but pictures are always welcome; after all...

  • Becoming a multi-award winning winemaker takes hard work and dedication. Add strength, moxie, intelligence, and class and you’ve got Virginia Willcock, Vasse Felix chief winemaker since 2006. Outspoken about low intervention winemaking and passionate about expressing terroir in every sip, Willcock has elevated Vasse Felix, Margaret River’s found... Read More

  • OK - I'll admit that TCA, Brett and cork taint make me curl up my face and turn a good bottle of wine into cow manure. I'm very sensitive to it and I find it offensive. I know of several people that drink those wine and like them - I don't.This is one of those wines - with a catch;I bought 2 of these bottles 3 yrs ago when a novice said they wer... Read More

  • Thanks for the tip, v v.  We don't have any Northern California travel plans in the forseeable future, but I will tuck that away.The rest of your post was a great story.  I started to get pretty excited when you reported the Carlisle PS find.  Then my heart hit the floor when you reported the broken cork and the inability to continue.  Then I ch...

  • Mark, if you haven't already, next time you're in Napa set up a tasting with Carole Meredith & Steve Lagier.  You taste at their house on top of Mt. Veeder overlooking their vineyards. Great people, great wines and one of the most educational wine experiences I've ever had, oh yeah, the view doesn't suck either.On another note, we were invited t... Read More
