This was very good with dinner tonight. Elegant, nice acidity, light cherry type fruit.

Well, different strokes, I guess. I've had the regular bottling several times and have always loved it. It's more tutti-fruiti and carbonic-like (although I don't think it sees carbonic maceration), while the Finca Meixeman has more of an herbal core underneath.

Drank a 2008 Chimney Rock Stag's Leap District Cab Sauv & 2007 Argentina Malbec (forget the producer) on Saturday. Both were delicious.

French two days in a row; not something that I usually do. This was drinking very nicely and I had it with a ribeye.

Very good QPR, nice and bright. Red fruit, flowery

Ha! I almost opened one of those tonight!

Full Pull! 90% of the stuff I get from them is purely French/Italian QPR stuff
post #19823 of 20843
Full Pull ftw.

Another thing from full pull. Tasty AF.

Yeah - they're great, especially for the price

Picked up these four recently from the LCBO...

 

x1 2010 Cascina Dardi Bussia Barolo (a gift for a friend I'm visiting this weekend)

 

x1 2012 Xavier 100% Cotes du Rhone (40% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Mouvedre, etc.) I've never tried the CdP from this producer, but I know they are one of the most respected in CdP, so I'm excited to try this entry-level bottling. I've included a link below to a wine of their's I find interesting: a non-vintage CdP, which by the description, sounds excellent.

x2 2009 Canonica a Cerreto Chianti Classico Riserva. I tend to love good Chianti with a few years age on it and can usually find at decent prices for daily-drinking. I usually spend $16-20 for my daily drinkers and this was $20.

Today - forgot who recommended Loosen, but I like it - would have preferred bone dry - but this was at Costco for $9, so had to try

Seems interesting, not sure if it will disrupt, but I might bite given my significant others penchant for white and mine for red.

Interesting - if it was able to use normal wine bottles (reseal/vacuum) it would be amazing.

Great. An iPad on the wine bottle...
