I don't think I've ever had the red

This is really delicious. Much better than the Nebbiolo I had. Extremely aromatic. It just pops right out of the glass. And everything is there and more on the palate. Stewed dark fruit like bing cherries and figs and plums. Baking spices. leather. Black pepper. Soft tannins with a nice light grip. Mild acidity.

Lovely considering the cold weather outside

I'm a retard. I bought a Jura on recommendation by staff thinking all juras are vin jauns and apparently a bought a trousseau which is apparently a single varietal popular in Jura.

The color on this is enthralling. Kinda reminds me of amontillado sherry but with more red. Tastes a little bit like sherry without the strong sweetness, little tannins, nice acidity.

It's really interesting

Ha. I did the same thing early this summer. The reds are a nice, light type.

bizarrely, some of them can age vitrually indefinitely. I once had a '42 cotes du jura rouge that tasted fresh and lively -- I would have guessed it was no more than 5-10 years old.

Had an 06 Peay Scallop Shelf Pinot. Very elegant, drinking superbly. Paired with some steak tartare I made and it was wonderful.

Saturday night I had a 2004 Chateau Pradeax, Bandol. It was a baby, but it was amazing. Full body, barnyardy, a bit of acid.

That stuff is pretty good. Had a 2002 this summer that I loved. But last winter I had a 1989 that was dead.

This is very interesting. Interesting nose. Impressive intensity in taste, very rich, full bodied, long aftertaste. Almost a tad too strong! Completely different ballpark than the entry level (Terassen Feldspiel) Grüner Veltliner from Domäne Wachau which I've had back in August.

Finishing a bottle of Bila-Haut right now. Young, yes. But after about 1-2 hours of breathing, it opens up nicely to an intense young wine. Great bang for the buck.

I've been to this winery; it's beautiful! Very nice tasting room which is actually in a cave!

This past few days... Friday: Shafer One Point Five. Beautiful but oakier than I recall.
Saturday- a cheap daily drinker Tempranillo from Milcampos... nice for the cool Fall weather.
Last night, 2009 Cristom Viognier.
