Drinking a Freemark Abbey Napa Merlot on the patio in the beautful sun. Supposed to be working with my agent. Screw it.

A 13 y/o Viognier? Do tell.

Sorry Pio- typo. 2008.

Now I'm genuinely interested! I've had many enjoyable wines from Yalumba and recently picked up an 09 or 10 of their Viognier. Is it bad?

I am also a Yalumba fan...never had the Viognier, but some of the older "The Signature" Cab/Syrah blends are delicious.

It's da bomb. Just started drinking it recently as well. Had some 2010 Mas de la Dame (I believe) very nice. $20 I think.

It had a bitterness to it that I have never associated with Viognier. A lingering bitter aftertaste.

Mas de la Dame is delicious. My current favorite in roses is an Italian one called Sperino.

OK. Just opened my last bottle of 2005 J. Wilkes Bien Nacido Pinot. Had three bottles that I bought on a whim (a very expensive whim) back in 2008. Have been very disappointed in the first two. Let the third rest awhile. Either my tastes have changed or the wine has. At $47 I still wouldn't pick this one as a good bargain, but it didn't suck.

I really suspect that I've come to appreciate this style Pinot a bit more than I did before. It's not as fruit driven like I'm used to expecting in a Cali Pinot. This one has more barnyard. Was very nice with salmon tonight.
