2014 Stony Hill Chardonnay It does not get much more old school in Napa chardonnay than Stony Hill. Producing chardonnay “same as it ever was” since 1952, this venerable winery has remained true to the minimalist philosophy of its founders, the McRae family, since before minimalist was a term of endearment. Aged in neutral oak, so as to let the fruit speak over the wood, this wine was layered, textured and rich, a result of the vineyard of its origin and not the tampering of man.
Do you know your Txakolina from your Albariño? Or how about what fermentation or carbonic maceration is? Do you know what grape grows best in Central Otago and Rio Blanco? Do you even know where Central Otago and Rio Negro are? If you do, great. If not, no worries, all it says is that there is still a lot about the world of wine out there for you to discover.
"It's been an amazing ride," said John Salamanski of CS Wines, as he pointed with more than a hint of nostalgia to the past and the arc of the Pinot Posse that he founded a dozen years ago. "We have seen births and passings, successes and challenges, a wine industry that has grown and changed dramatically, and still, this core group of producers — friends, really — come back each year."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
