You go every year?

Modest but happiness inducing haul from Silverlake Wine, CA

I have the Donkey & Goat Grenache rose chilling right now actually
post #19999 of 20671
Donkey & Goat is hard or impossible to find in the hellhole I usually live in, so I'm looking forward to trying this bottle for the first time!

yeah - only reason I have them is because I was in their wine club for a while, but now 1-2 of my local places carry it, so I don't need to.

Copain bottles (or at least has bottled in the past) a varietal Picpoul. You're right: it's a hell of a lot more than $8 a bottle.

Nice. I went to Napa last year. Thinking of RRV next.

Great area too. Stay in Healdsburg for a similar feel to Paso. It's bigger, more expensive, more people...but still pretty damn good.

Pasquale Pelissero Barbaresco 2011 last night.

 

Very closed and tannic at this stage, but really good sour cherry- hoping it'll open up tonight.

Had a 2012 TH "The Hedge" Syrah last night. Decanted for about an hour prior to drinking and had with a really good ribeye dinner. Was wonderful.

FYI, was talking to someone at the TH tasting room. They predict strong sales and will be pouring/selling library wines by Xmas. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Very happy to have found this thread!

 

I'm a big California Pinot fan - tried a 2012 Expression 39 Pinot from Anderson Creek last night and was highly impressed. Very fruit forward - lots of blueberry and plum, certainly one of my new favorite bottles.

Drank the last of my 2003 Sottimano "Cotta" Barbaresco over the weekend. Sure 2004 was a stellar year, but every 2003 I've had has been exquisite.

Had steaks last night so decided to change things up and have a Shiraz:
