I'll have to get back to you on that. I bought it Saturday and did not enter it into my Cellar Tracker so I can't pull it up at work. Agreed that Lynch usually a great importer which is why I mentioned this with surprise.

and in the process of reading up on Sicily came to try and really enjoy these two bottles from COS





They remind me very much of the kind of cru beaujolais I enjoy - namely the Morgons of Lapierre and Foillard and Brouillys of Thivin and Pacalet. Fairly light in alcohol, good grip, long, and very food-friendly. Highly recommended for something a little different.

I was reading something this past week about Pacalet and it mentioned he is the nephew of Marcel Lapierre. Will have to pick up some of his wine the next time I come across it.

Yes, Christophe Pacalet is Lapierre's nephew - I wrote Brouilly but it his Fleurie that I meant - really great. Also fantastic value is his beaujolais-villages but then, everything is pretty reasonably priced: http://www.christophepacalet.com/vins.php

Interesting. Would love to try some. Any distributors in the states?

This is the same producer as the CMS. Merlot, or mostly Merlot, a bit lighter than the CMS.

Another crappy photo. Great Champ. I don't know how to describe flavors in white wines, or Champ, but I liked the dryness. I tend to not like sweeter, or more fruit forward Champs.

I lived in Seattle for 4 years- a great chance to experience some PNW wines.  I really fell for the Kennedy Shah stuff. 

I would normally say something nice here about how I wish I could be back in Seattle- but I gotta tell you the wine here keeps me happy!

Arnoux 2010 Pinot Noir. I really don't know anything about wine but this is delicious to me. Got the bottle for 16 bucks too.
