  • Zinfandel for some reason reminds me of porta-potty deodorizer. I think if I never smelled a porta-potty I would like it though! I can always taste Zinfandel in blended Italian table wines and it turns me off, although there are a few brands I like that do have a little Zinf but mainly Merlot.It has a rose or flower scent and taste to it that ju...

  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • It’s not what you think it is, and I’m not sure what the producers think it should be. What it should be is a light wine, something really fresh and pretty, but at other times a bit darker with a lacy tannic appeal and subtle floral, mineral and spicy perfumes framing a gorgeous core of dark cherry fruit. It’s a wine that is decidedly at home in...

  • So what’s the first thing you think of when you read Cariñena? I thought of the grape Cariñena, aka Carignane, eponymous as it is. What I did not think of was the region Cariñena in Spain’s province of Aragon. Why is that? It’s a good question, and one I resolved while visiting the region briefly early last month. Cariñena the region doesn’t jum... Read More

  • It’s time to talk about bubbles. For better or worse we associate New Year’s Eve with sparkling wine, though of course we could enjoy sparkling wine just about any time. One of the reasons we look to bubblies this time of year is that we are celebrating and sparkling wine is a celebratory wine, and often priced that way. But there are options ou... Read More

  • It’s a great thing when things just come together. Earlier this year I had planned a trip to California to do some tasting but it had to be postponed. When I went to reschedule I noticed a thread in the Snooth Forum  that was looking for people to join in a West Coast Pinot Noir Throw Down. I wasn’t sure what exactly that entailed but I am alway...

  • It's not often that I have a plan. Well, a detailed plan at least.. Some sort of a plan not being a requirement for those in this business. But a detailed plan, and over-arching theme for a visit to wine country can certainly come in handy.  This month’s, or rather last month’s theme was, surprisingly enough: Zinfandel. I say surprisingly becaus... Read More

  • Tasting inexpensive wine is always refreshing. Not because they wines always offer such compelling value, but rather because they allow one to keep things in perspective. Now I’m not going to say that any of the wines tasted for this article are worth twice the price, though in fact there are wines twice the price that are less drinkable than s... Read More

  • That was a blast. I want to thank everyone who made it possible with a tip of the hat to Mr and Mrs Foxy!Great hospitality, food, and friends, and we also had some wine. I didn't include the Patz and Hall wines in my WOTN voting since they had so many entrants in the line-up, but the Burnside and Moses-Hall were both excellent and the Sonoma Coa...

  • You have to love Australia’s red wines. If for nothing else than the sheer simplicity of twisting off a baker’s dozen of screw-caps as opposed to setting out to fight with so many corks. OK that’s not a tremendous motivation to get you to try these wines but it was a sweet sight for my sore eyes, or hand as the case may be. Some of these wines w... Read More
