  • Building a cellar isn’t always about laying down the most expensive wines on earth. It should also be about laying down wines that will improve with age, developing nuanced complexity that they simply can’t reveal in the flush of their youth.There are plenty of wines from around the world that really change over the course of time yet don’t cost...

  • If you haven't had wines from Romania, you’re missing out. Big time!I know this is a bold statement. With so many amazing wines being produced worldwide today. But, with that being said, I am convinced that there should be room in our cellars for some good bottles of Feteasc Neagr (Black Maiden in English), arguably, the most renowned native gra...

  • Painted Rock Merlot 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The 2009 Painted Rock Merlot (Okanagan Valley, BC Canada) is showing only limited bricking at the glass rim, being yet of a dark, black cherry colour. A most unusual find (current release: 2016), but seems intact: nose is of a gentle, slightly canned plum with riper plum on entry, and vanilla notes from gentle, integrated French Oak tannin. Smo...

  • One of the few real bargains left in France are found in the southern Rhone and Bouche du Rhône and fall under the appellation Cotes du Rhône and Cotes du Rhône-Villages.  These wines are delicious whether red or white, and are still affordable at good price to quality ratios.  Their copies in Australia, South Africa, Australia and North America...

  • I spent my first afternoon in Pfalz strolling through the quaint village of Deidesheim. It is classic Germany – story book houses, window boxes overflowing with colorful flowers, and a welcoming fountain surrounded by cafes in the town square.

  • Hasn’t it? When we started Snooth back in 2007, rosé was not such a hot button topic. Its growth over the past eleven years is astounding.

  • Symington is an iconic name in wine. For over four generations the Symington name has been synonymous with high quality port. If the name is unfamiliar their port houses are certainly not; Graham’s, Cockburn, Dow, and Warre are among the best producers in the world.

  • We opened this Duckhorn (Paradux winery) red blend last night and it was a little different, but still pretty tasty.  Cellar Tracker has an assessment, and I found Duckhorn's description of the next year's release here:Production Notes Composition 54% Petit Verdot, 42% Zinfandel, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon Aging & Oak 18 months in oak 95% French oak,...
