Gunderloch is a great producer, have had some spectacular Auslese and BAs from them.

I've enjoyed the wine pics guys- thanks for posting.  I've been living in the $15 range so nothing of note to post myself.

 

Here's a couple of things from my cellar that I'm holding until I get back stateside:

And Mr. Mastroberardino signing a special bottle for me

The great thing about wine is... there's so much of it!

This was very nice. Solara style.

You have to wind your way down a couple narrow flights of stairs and then shove open an unmarked door, but when you do it sort of takes your breath away. Its very small. It's packed to the rafters, and well-curated. Kind of dusty, like an old library. Prices were competitive. Chatted witht the owner for a while about the community (which I grew up in). Got a 2001 Beerenauslese from pfalz and a half bottle of 2008 cab syrah blend from a Washington winery that I'm a fan of. Can't wait to go back and snoop around some more. Glad I found a place to get special bottles from. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Also it was cool that he had both magnums(and larger) and half bottles(and smaller) of a lot of stuff. Clearly a labor of love for this guy.

I've also been in here. Accidentally got pulled into it with another couple. Glad it happened.

It's a fun little shop and I go every time I'm in Seattle. Also worth checking out is Vino Verité (http://vinoverite.com/main.html) in Capitol Hill. Very nice owner with a good selection including a number from Kermit Lynch.

Thanks for the tip! I had to look up who Kermit Lynch is . . . I'm new to this.

89 Vieux Telegraph. Open about 20 min and just starting to open. It's a sound bottle and I expect it's going to blossom over the next few hours as it comes to room temperature. I've had this wine a dozen or so times and it is amazingly consistent, not sure I've ever had a bad bottle. This wine compares very favorably to the 89 Beaucastel, which is all over the place.


Also of note the 2010 Domaine Eden Pinot noir. Mt. Eden purchased the old Cinnabar winery in the Santa Cruz mountains a few years ago and the Domaine Eden wines are sourced from that property. Mt Eden is one of my favorite CA Pinot producers and this wine is consistent with the Mt Eden wines in style and flavor profile in that it's balanced and has a fine acidic backbone.

Most people think of MD 20/20 as more of a dessert wine, but the sour apple really goes well with the tart imported plumb tomatoes in the dominos pizza sauce. Try it.

red grape or blueberry on the mad dog?

AppleMark

A pleasant wine. Less jammy than a equally priced Napa Cab, very silky and what seemed like a complex nose. But, very little minerality and a little bland on the mid palate.

I've visited the winery. In Walla Walla, it's considered a good wine. Only when good wine passes over the golden horseshoe of Southern Ontario do they seem to be priced like excellent wines!

At $50 I've had better.
