2016 Peay Sonoma Coast Chard

2015 No Girls Syrah

 

4 days into the year...dang

Love the Peay wines especially the estate chardonnay which ages nicely. The Sonoma coast is very good also. Had dinner with Andy Peay last month and asked him about it. Said it's mostly estate fruit with some fruit from a Charles Heintz vineyard.

2008 Lopez de Heredia Rose!!!! I couldn't pass up this offer. 

Curious if you found it domestically, and if so, approx cost if not prying too much 

Yes, it's available domestically.  I run a wine shop in Connecticut and I had a 3 bottle allocation from my supplier.    PM me and I'll share price. I don't feel comfortable posting it on the board. 

 

More exploration of Spain....I'm enjoying this:

Just bought my Rivers Marie Pinot Noir Summa Old Vines and Sonoma Coast allocation.  I passed on the rest of the allocation as we are way out of room.

Great minds think alike...I just did the same thing for the same reasons

A mix of buying from friends looking to offload locally and out of province...as we all know Lcbo offerings of anything worth buying are few and far between.

1 x Sottimano Barbaresco Fausoni DOCG 2015

Just as a teaser to see what this producer is like

The answer is excellent, and they continue to get better and better. I tasted all the 2015s with Elena Sottimano in April, and they are fantastic. A bottle of 2004 Fausoni was opened last night at a tasting and, while it could have used more air, it was delicious and still has a long life ahead of it.

My favourite single vineyard from Sottimano is Pajore, followed by Curra, but you can't go wrong with any of their wines.

Awesome to hear. Spent some time in Barolo this fall and absolutely fell in love with the region. Thinking now I've only been exposed to a few barbaresco producers and want to start branching out.... Any other recommendations?

At the risk of stating the obvious: 1)  Produttori del Barbaresco, Normale OR Riserva's.  2) Castello di Neive Barbaresco is one of the best deals in the general list at KGBO - now inched up to $27.95 for current vintage (2015).   Had a GREAT visit with the owner Nov 2017.
