There you have the answer it's delicious. And some of the wines go threw hell so you can can buy them, so a $5-$10 extra well be worth it. And all good roses cost around that much if you ask me.

+1 on your -1. I've been drinking through a case of the Corte Gardoni Bardolino Rose this summer at about $11 a bottle and it's fantastic.

I have been drinking rose all summer, nearly every bottle $10-$11. I bought one Bandol (Pibarnon?) for $24, and I liked it a lot but it was not 2.5x better.

Found a bottle of Philippe Rothschild Saint-Emilion 2008 for 30 bux- probably expensive but I'll save it for a special occasion! Does anyone have experience with this stuff?

Have heard of it but never tried it out. Tell me what you thought of it when the time comes.

Interesting article here: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/08/dining/how-adventurous-should-a-wine-list-be.html

Reminds me of a conversation some of us had when one of us was building a wine list for a restaurant he was running. Given the location and clientele I said he needed to have a white Zin on the menu. The article comes to the opposite conclusion.

But the white Zin eventually was the money maker, no?



The Liversan is drinkable but that's about it. I blame the vintage.

The Terra Noble was pretty much a straightforward new world Pinot Noir (as far as I can judge). Very jammy. Had the last glass the following day and it almost tasted like pinot noir mixed with raspberry sirup.

The rosé was ok.

It's been a while since I've had an older Orion. This is the 94 and I have to say, out of the gate, it's pretty damn good. A little funky like a CdP, but with some spice, good fruit level, still some grip at 18. Will be interested to see how this develops over the evening.

Whose 03 Barbera is that?
