Did any really stand out from the rest? Any TN's?


Easily the best that day.

How was this? Does it live up to the hype?

I certainly enjoyed it and I think it is a very good sparkling wine. But I could have found others just as good at a lower price.

Last night w/Tyees:

- Guy Charlemagne Champagne Brut Rose -- nice Pinot Noir nose and same on palate, lots of cherry, spice, excellent

- 2004 Dom. Weinbach Gewurztraminer Cuvee Laurence -- textbook roses and lichi, pear, white pepper, rich and silky, finishes long and, unlike a lot of other Gewurztraminers, very dry (Tyee called this "a wine connoisseur's Gewurz"), delicious

- 2002 Mommessin Clos de Tart -- blackberry, cherry, anise, mineral, shows more and more with every mouthful, velvety, a Great Wine still a few year from peak, long expansive finish, a Wow! wine, killer Burgundy!

- 1997 Allegrini Amarone -- some cheesy stank, lots of sultana raisin, milk chocolate, tar, big and powerful, long finish with big round tannins, probably drinking as well as it's going to but no hurry to get rid of these yet

- 1987 Fonseca Port Guimarens -- plum, cinnamon, sage, fig flavours, not a huge Fonseca but complex, rich, delicious and perfect for a rainy night

This was quite nice. More of an elegant style than some full throttle Cali Pinots. I only opened one because I had six. If I only had a couple, I would wait on these. If in doubt, Jamie has a vintage chart on his site. As I indicated in my original post, I haven't opened any of my '09s yet.

An international WineSearcher inquiry indicates that there is only one supplier of this wine in the world.

I had this when in Washington and was thinking it was around 30% Syrah, but may be wrong.

Glad you liked it.

Actually I think you are correct on the higher percentage of Syrah. I stated it that way just to mention the 6th grape. We bought the bottle at the winery when out there a few months ago. My other half was more excited about how cheap they were selling barrel ends and staves for. Her brothers are woodworkers and the pieces we brought back will make a small table.
