The top 10 wines in the US press

7th March, 2013 by Andy Young

In the San Francisco Chronicle Jon Bonné reviews Napa County Zinfandels while Will Lyons recommends a Bordeaux white that “oozes a creamy vanilla character”.

US PressIn reviewing Napa County Zinfandels Bonné revealed that US federal regulators have approved vine geneticist Carole Meredith’s wish to have Tribidrag made in modern times.

Bonné wrote: “All grist for the nerdiest of the nerdy – if not for the fact that Meredith is also the vine geneticist who sleuthed out the mystery of Zinfandel’s origins, finding it identical to an obscurity in a single vineyard on the Dalmatian coast of Croatia, where it was known as Crljenak Kastelanski.

“Next month, 70 cases of the first California Tribidrag will be sent out into the world. Technically it will be Mount Veeder Red Wine; the feds approved Tribidrag only as a fanciful name.”

In the Wall Street Journal Will Lyons compares New and Old World Sauvignon Blanc, he wrote: While many are happy drinking the New World expression (and why not? it is often exquisite), those wanting to explore wines with a little more delicacy and complexity should look no further than the vineyards of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé.”
