Hi all,

Hope to get some feedback. I am still exploring my palate and it's very exciting. Was almost ready to order but really wanted to get advice, feedback, suggestions from you guys.

I am looking to buy 12 bottles from a vendor but little by little I added 21 bottles to cart, so really need to trim it down this time around.

Previous wine I had and feedback Previous wine I had and feedback (for some hint into my likeings)

2012 Paul Hobbs Chardonnay Russian River Valley (LOVED)
2011 Bodega Norton Malbec Reserva (Excellent for the price)
2012 Beringer Vineyards Chardonnay Private Reserve (Unique and also loved)
2010 Marchesi de' Frescobaldi Chianti Rùfina Nipozzano Riserva (Not bad BUT nothing memorable)
2010 Parusso Barolo (hated ... opened too soon, too much tart/tannin)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

So with this next order I am looking to explore other regions, grapes, etc.
Which wine you'd recommend getting off of this order?
