What did you think?


Nice. The merlot shows well amd provides a good fruit core. I prefer the polish and precision of the volte at the price point. Went well with baked pasta and rapini.

2007 Domaine Notre Dame des Palieres Gigondas at lunch earlier. Open and ready; not shut down at all. This was at a wine bar/cafe that sells bottles retail then adds $10 corkage for opening while dining there. After our lunch I bought two bottles to bring home. Including the corkage fee, it had to be the best $32 bottle I've had from a restaurant list.

How did it show?


Tannic but drinkable with tart fruit and excellent freshness. This should age effortlessly but I don't have enough experience with this producer to guess when it might reach its peak. Like you I am becoming a fan of this producer.

Last night I had dinner with a few friends at J&G in Bal Harbour. Wines were as follows:

Pierre Peters N.V. Champagne Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs

2006 Cecile Tremblay Vosne-Romanée Vieilles Vignes

2006 Sine Qua Non Grenache Raven Series WOTN

2003 Screaming Eagle Cabernet Sauvignon (Talk about an overrated and overpriced wine). Was a nice wine though; to me a little over extracted with high alcohol. Not worth a third of the release price. I would never seek out this wine

Will let you know in about 5 hours VinCentric! Smile And I am VERY happy about the Giants... The Bay Area is enjoying a resurgence not seen since the late 80s with the simultaneous success of the Giants and 49ers... Now if only my beloved Warriors could bring up the back in a more dignified manner.

Congrats on the SF Giants and more important to you and A.... for your 4 year anni.

Tonight, Mrs. DP and I shared a 2009 Sbragia Chard and a '99 Tignanello while watching the winds of Sandy make our backyard trees dance.

Interesting. I inadvertently opened one a year ago and found it tighter than..........
I vowed not to open any more for several years. Now I feel compelled to try it again ('cause I truly trust your palate).
The '80 Col D'Orcia was amongst my WOTY choices amongst others we've had the pleasure of sharing.
