Board-O, have you ordered any Grenache Blanc from Curran recently?

No. I don't know why. I love the stuff. It's better than Tablas Creek's. It's also atypical for the varietal. Most are fatter, more viscous wines, while theirs is a juicy fruit and acidity wine.


Just one more sip.

It may be stolpman fruit (was told by a wine tasting room). Just had the latest vintage of Tablas Creek gb and it was lean, somewhat fruit forward and not at all viscous.

Beckman may be the best gb I have tasted though.

I enjoyed Beckmen's also, but still think Curran's is the best US version.

The best Grenache Blanc (Garnacha Blanca) I've had is a 50% mix with Macabeo in Coma Blanca by Mas d'en Gil. I know it's in some Rhone whites, but I think in lesser amounts.


Just one more sip.

I too like Grenache Blanc...thanks for the tips.
If you see any Tensley Camp 4 Vineyard Blanc, try it, you may like that as well. (65% Grenache Blanc 35% Roussanne )

Sorry for drift...

There are wine club directories available from which you can search for good wine clubs. And there are plenty of wine clubs that give their best services and discount,offers to their members like enjoying the wine with celebrities.

I second this notion !


I third the motion of my buddy hippo mom - but, as to Neal - he is not a nice guy. Spent a miserable half hour or so with him at his winery three years ago. No people skills


Actually, I spent about eight hours with Mark along with his winemaker, Gove Cielo, at a dinner at the Neal winery. It was a great evening/early morning and they couldn't have been more gracious.

You're showing your age a little bit there, Board-O. Wink Not that there's anything wrong with that. (or them!)

Have heard similar reports from many other posters, newsguy. Perhaps Mark was just having a bad day when CAWM was there, or the problem was elsewhere.
