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 »

  • Pennywise Pinot Noir 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Very good dinner wine. Ligth but with a considerable amount of flavor. I would recommend it if you can still find it. Read More

  • Sterling Vineyards Merlot Napa Valley 2002

    Snoothrank:

    Another estate sale find. While storage of this wine was less than optimal--room temperature environment--I am perfectly happy with it. Jammy red berry fruit on entry. Some earthiness, mid-palate. A bit of "old tannin funk" on the rear palate. Read More

  • Bachelder Oregon Pinot Noir 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This wine of Thomas Bachelder (a native of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada) is from his Oregon mood (he makes wine in Ontario, Canada and Burgundy, France as well). This 2013 from the Willamette Valley is bricking nicely with a nose of strawberry, field mushroom and freshly fallen snow. Entry is rather plummy with only a hint of van... Read More

  • Myriad Syrah Halcon Vineyard Yorkville Highlands 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Nice unobtrusive introduction of black raspberry or black cherry. Some salinity, mid-palate. Quite muted tannin. Very pleasant, mid-length aftertaste with, interestingly, a hint of licorice. A very restrained, although, altogether enjoyable wine. Read More

  • Paul Hobbs Winery Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Really good wine. Black fruit--blackberry, currant--on entry. Some salinity and stone mid-palate. Nice mouth-filling wine. Tannins and acids are just about completely resolved, Anybody who has this in their cellar can open it now without regret. Read More

  • The wonderful wines of B.C. are my favorite, however I am fast becoming a Washington wine lover. Terra Blanca wineries are the best...they have it all, good wine and food is just part of the experience at this winery. Bookwalter is another very good winery in the Tri city area of Washington.

  • "Gnary Head Cellars" (Manteca, CA). Try their zinfandel, and cabernet. These are truly wines worthy of praise! Great with BBQ pork and beef even better with a pasta and tomato sauce.
