  • Krimvintorg Merlot Table Wine Dry Red Crimea Wine 2017

    Snoothrank:

    4,5$ wine produced in Yevpatoria, Crimea. The bottleneck is wide, promising a big wine... but it's not. Cork is surprisingly short on the other hand, 2/3 of regular size. Cherry-red color. nose - ripe wild red berry, fresh strawberry, caramel, wide and nice. Texture is jelly and watery, possibly because it's too young yet.it's hard to tell anyth... Read More

  • I guess it's great for that personal touch but frankly, I think it cheapens the gift.How do I gift them? Well in the traditional way, I put it in a brown bag with a thin curled ribbon on the bottleneck of the wine.Not elaborate but efficient and the ribbon ads a personal touch.PS No matter how you wrap wine as a gift, it's obvious and some of th...

  • It's funny I love giving wine as a gift! Valentines day, Christmas, Birthdays but wine can also be an in personable gift as well.Its awkward to wrap for the most gifted wrapper and lets face it those wine gift bags are ugly "clunky" and obvious.Finally we have a greeting card label for wine it's a gift wrap and card it one where you simply write...

  • This just arrived in my email--hoping the nested Snooth link doesn't cause the universe to collapse in an endless do-loop or a black hole:Let's have dinner... I love New York. Sure, it’s been said by others, but the fact is, I really do love New York- there’s an energy there that no place on earth can duplicate. During my last visit in March I h... Read More

  • Foxhorn Merlot Premier NV

    Snoothrank:

    I bought two 1,5 liter bottles of the Merlot on two different occasions lately. Both had the typical taste of a wine that was open for several days, when it starts to become spoiled and acidic.The cork cap does not seal tightly enough and the wine has been exposed to the air. Only a small part of the cork, just below the head has the same diamet... Read More

  • Now, let’s go back and talk a bit more about those corks and the effect rapid swings in temperature can have on them. Corks work as seals in the bottle neck because of their elasticity. A cork is effectively made up of lots of little bubbles of cork cells. This spongy structure expands and contracts like all solids do when the temperature c... Read More

  • The most important weapon in every wine drinker’s arsenal is, not surprisingly, decent stemware.  By decent I don’t mean fancy, just a nicely shaped all-purpose bowl that holds at least 10 ounces. I use both Bordeaux and Burgundy stems, pictured below, but the Bordeaux bowl is probably best if you’re only going to buy one type.  By the way, I dr... Read More

  • I'm new to the wine scene, but dead keen on improving my knowledge everyday. I stay in Stellenbosch, South Africa.I'm aware that wine should be stored laying on it's side so that the cork stays moist and touching the wine. However, I'm set on buying a magnum (1,5 litre bottle) of my favourite wine (Beyerskloof Pinotage, 2007 vintage) from my loc... Read More

  • Ever wanted to go back in time and drink like you did back in college? For some that may be a rhetorical question but that's exactly what sprang to mind when I heard about Pocket Shot, a handy new way to tote liquor around. For a mere $2 a bottle, Pocket Shot offers a choice of five portable spirits: gin, vodka, whiskey, rum, and tequila.Its web... Read More
