Can you really tell the difference between 9/10-10/11? I mean come on.
Timely question, did you get an allocation newsletter today? I've had several of the wines: Nebbiolo, Carignane, Barbera, Dolcetto, and the blend. They are solid, well made wines, made in a traditional style, but clearly from CA. I generally like this combination (Palmina and Sandlands are two other wineries I'd put in this same category). I think they're reasonably good values and I've ordered two allocations in the last few weeks. The newsletter came out today for...
Some wines this weekend: Occhipinti SP68 Nero D'Avola/Frappato (forget the vintage): really good and interesting, spicy with some zip. Like the wines from this producer a lot. 2011 Pernot Puligny Montrachet, Foliateres: Very good, if a bit young. A bit more round than I would have expected, got better as it opened up. 1990 Haut Brion: a stunning bottle of this wine. Open from the get go and got better.

The Joly we had in advance of the Acker BYO was a dry, botrytised wine. It was also, I thought, most foul.
That's really awesome, thank you for sharing.
If they won't walk to the bathrooms in the park, why would they walk to this?
The two madders and the two challis ties are not on the website, they were chosen from pictures Patrizio sent to me. The solid navy ties is A6, the next twill is ZZZD1, and the green tie is ZZZN8. All are three fold, unlined, and I think 3.5 or 3.25 inches, I can't remember the width off hand.
Sandlands is awesome. The Chenin in particular is a wonderful wine. It's made like a white burg, really unusual. I've had most of what he makes and they've been solid across the board. Great values too.
From left to right: madder, madder, challis, challis, twill, twill, twill.
