Welcome to Massachusetts - Be Fabulous and Say "I Do"
Not much lately; although, I do attend tastings and fortunately a lot are happening at this time of year.

I'm very fond of rieslings. I suppose I'll be shopping around for some within the next couple of weeks for Christmas.

Also, I don't know much about red wines. From time to time I purchase red table wines and some have been ok.

I like the Coppola red table wine. I haven't tried any his better wines yet, but I hope to soon.

However, I have sampled a couple of fancier wines from Chateauneuf du Pape. I really like the color and the aroma. The taste is very nice, soft and sensual. Also, I am intrigued by its history.

In my own auction, I have to admit, I bought some wonderful wines. What I tasted so far.

- Haut-Condissas 1997. Not the miracle of the century, but the first time I tasted it. Nice.

- Chardonnay Beerenauslese 2001 from Neusiedlersee.
(Weingut Weiss, Apetlon). Delicious, and not as heavy in alcohol as a Sauternes.

- Ch. Grand-Renouil, Canon-Fronsac, 1995. Great wine, value for money and all that.

- Weissburgunder Trocken, 2001 (Weingut Sander, Mettenheim Rheinhesen). It looked cheap, without even a capsule. But it's a very rich pinot blanc. In an Alsatian style. Nice. And I only spent 2 euro plus costs...

- Domaine Bismarck Cuvée Vanessa 2000.
Sounds like a side show, but it's perectly made of zweigelt, blaufränkisch and cabernet sauvignon (oak fermented). A very fine Austrian red wine.
I really love Austrian red wines. They are so pure and sainly made...

Bought some 1996 vintage Fonseca, have to taste that yet. Guess I don't have to be in a hurry.
'01 Monte Rosso zin
'01 St. Peter's Church zin
'01 Harris Kratka zin
'01 Pickett's Road Petite Sirah
'01 Holbrook Mitchell Trio meritage
'00 Holbrook Mitchell Trio meritage

Don't read a lot about Rosenblum on this forum, but if you haven't tried their zins, syrahs and (more recently) their petites and meritage, you're really missing something special in '00 & '01.

Let's roll...
I have put the brakes on and hid the Amex for December as Nov was very expensive for me as I bought approx 6-7 cases of assorted wines.

The only fairly expensive purchases for December so far are 6 x 1998 Bosquet des Papes CDP ($49.00 CDN) and a few 2000 Beaucastel CDP mags ($135 CDN). Hopefully nothing else will be of interest for the remainder of the year.

I will be buying holiday/party/gift wines to be consumed by and/or given to friends/family which include 2000 Diamond Creek Merlot ($16 CDN), 2001 J&F Lurton Malbec (#13 CDN), 2001 Von Kesselstatt Riesling Kabinett ($22.00 CDN) and Seaview Brut ($10.00 CDN).

Christmas presents for the kids or wine...... hmmmmm
1 Chateau La Nerthe CDP 1999 $115
6 Poggio Antico Brunello Riserva $115
3 Roberto Voerzio Barolo Brunate 1999 $224
3 Castello Banfi Poggio All'Oro Riserva 1995 $107
3 Catena Zapata Cab Mendoza Alta Zapata 1999 $54
3 Esmeralda Malbe Mendoza Alta Angelica 1999 $59
6 Lamaione 1998 $65
3 Penfold's St. Henri Shiraz 1999 $46.95
3 Chateau de Beaucastel CDP 2000 $65.95
3 Penfold's Bin 389 2000 $38.95
wineguyinto: $38.95 seems a little pricey for Penfolds Bin 389. It's available here for about $20. Confused

Last night, I went kinda mad at CostCo and the neighboring World Market

12x Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin @ $29.99
3x Murphy Goode Cab '01 @$18.99 (a favorite of Mrs. Juggernt)
3x Duhart-Milon '00 @ $27.00
3x Domaine Rothschild Pauillac @ $17.99
5x Mulderbosch SB '03 @ $14.99(!!!)
1x Bogle Old Vines Zin '01 @ $9
1x Coppola Rosso @ $7

and no doubt something I've forgotten about
wineguy: geez, that's one hell of a haul. You won't be disappointed with either the '97 Poggio Antico Riserva or the '95 Banfi Poggio All'Oro. Hold the Poggio Antico for 6-7 years before opening, and another 5 for the Banfi. I only say 6-7 for the Poggio since you've got a half case and can burn one at the beginning of the maturity curve to get a feel for it.

Also ... *you* were the one that picked up the Catena Alta Malbec, eh? Stewart was trying to point some out to me, but someone swiped what was on the floor at Summerhill. lol.

juggernt: Those prices are CAD, so the Bin 389 works out to about $30USD.

Not me buddy, all I got from Summerhill was the Poggio All' Oro, the Voerzio, and a Nerthe (I had two, but I like to buy in three's so I topped up). I picked up the rest in Maple. I was offered the opportunity to sample the Antico about two weeks ago and it was awesome. The bottle had been open about an hour maybe a bit more, and it was seriously closed yet ultra seductive. I agree with your drinking window and maybe when that window opens, you'd care to climb in and quaff some with me? Cheers...
