I need to get better at being able to observe these trends. Do you have other suggested publications? Maybe something just as comprehensive, too.

Dunno anything about Savennieres wine but picked up a bottle of this on a lark:

Took it to a BYOB restaurant last night. Kind of a mistake. Hadn't realized that the stuff needs to be aged a bit and I had picked up a 2012 bottle. Really acidic and just kind of, uhh, untamed. Oh well. Food was disappointing too so maybe it was appropriate.

Great stuff, it's a bit hard to come by in PA, and should be better known than it is.

it's surprisingly hard to come by even in NY. I don't know what the deal is, but it's rare that I see it in stores, and when I do see it in stores, it's never something that is consistently carried (it's like stores get a bunch, sell it, then wait for more). It's the opposite of Billecart-Salmon, which is pricey yet sold everywhere.

They transitioned from the Wilson Daniels portfolio to Vineyard Brands and seemed to fall off the map in the Northeast.

Line up of wines I plan to drink over the weekend. From left to right, 2011 24 month extended triage Booker Oublie Rhone blend, 2011 Saxum James Berry Vineyard Syrah, 2011 Linne Calodo Overthinker red blend, 2011 Terry Hoage The Hedges Syrah, 2010 Saxum Booker Vineyard Syrah, 2011 Cayuse God Only Knows Grenache.




Tonight's fair. Tons of peppery tar and cherry cola after popping but opened up into a super smooth black fruit quaff but kept some pepper notes. Really, really drinking well right now.

Better grab some tooth whitening toothpaste for the aftermath.

Is anyone else on the Bedrock allocation list? Lineup looks good.

What does the group think of amarone? It receives no attention here at all, which leads me to wonder if my enjoyment of it makes me a philistine.

Not at all, I'm a fan of Amarone. I do like a more restrained style, especially if it's going to be paired with food. I have a good friend who makes a terrific Amarone that I used to import.

Same- love it.

Challenge being to find a well-aged + affordable example.
