Did the food and wine pairing seminar for $15. Can't remember the guy's name, but he was a jerk and very rude to other individuals who were not as knowledgable about wine. What a shame as it is unwanted PR for Phelps. Got there at 10:30 am.
Here is the line-up with short notes...
Insigina 99: wow, excellent, deep, deep color, think, multiple, slow legs: 93 points
2000 Chard Ovation: nice, buttery, full-bodied, but I would pass at the price
2000 Le Mistral: excellent if you like Rhone grape, full-bodied, deep, red color, thick, rick, slow legs: 90-92 points; excellent QPR
1999 merlot: deep, deep color, less fruit than other 99 merlots tasted, full of tannin, 88 points
2000 Cab: multiple, thin legs, rich color, but not full-bodied, pass at price, 88 points
1998 Late Harvest Riesling: pineapple, great color, apricot: 91 points
Did not purchase anything b/c I can easily find in Texas market.
