Alois Lageder (Pinot Bianco) white wine from Italy. First time I ever tasted this and it was pretty good. Anyone else who have tried it out? Not that expensive either paid $15 for the bottle.

^ What did you think of the first one?

it was nice. Not mind blowing or anything, but that is not what I was looking for.

Interesting night at dinner last night.

For starters... here the 2000 Amarone we had during dinner. Delicious... and has many years to evolve. But well blended, soft, smooth with an almost (almost) port-like sweetness to it.



Then there's the partial inventory of what's hiding in the basement. They don't show it and aren't sure what to do with it right now. They've been sitting on all these bottles since they acquired them over the years going back to the 1960's. I'm certain several of you will find the list very interesting.

Picked up these at Soif, the best wine shop in Santa Cruz (great inventory, they have Rousseau, Didier, Ravenau, and so much else ...)

I tasted the two whites and the bubbly, my fave was the Chablis. The bubbly Vouvray was a first for me. The Tempier is going to be fine, I know, though I have not yet had the 2011. The '68 Rioja they swear is drinking great; I have bought many things from them and never been steered wrong so I have hopes.

Any chance we could get an update once you try this? I'm super curious.

I went there last week. I need to go back for some Egon Müller.

they also had an awesome '02 red bandol that I tasted that I think needs 10 years but it was impressive

that list above is very weird, BTW. There is zero chance that a '76 Greysac is still alive. What is Sterling "Reserva"? Many of the Napa listings don't specify which bottling. Most of the burgs don't list the producer. Etc.
