Yeah, they just sent a teaser email out saying the release will be 9/21. Not sure how many bottles will be available- I only bought one last time around, which is still in the eurocave

Terrior Capital founder arrested for wire fraud. Seems he was bilking millions out of at least one client.
Had several roses last night. There was an Italian one, can't remember the grape (damn Eye-ties,) that was really light and drank like refreshing water. Had the new rose from Epoch and it was a nice effort but a little too hot and big for the style IMO. Then I had this and it was awesome. Great nose, very floral, refreshing acid and minerality...would buy a case but I know rose is not something I reach for in the cellar that often.
Had a Louis Michel Chablis we dissected and it was excellent. High acidity, green apples, citrus, flint. Zero mallos and so clean and lean compared to so many CA Chards.
An Argentinian Malbec from Mendoza. Holy blackberries, plumb, and black cherries! Toss in some violets and coco and leather. I need to taste me some more of these.
I've had a few Malbec's from Mendoza, and every time I've tasted them blind I've been a) thorough impressed and b) surprised that they were Malbec!
I've had some with 8-10 years of age on them and they were absolutely delicious; others were younger and still really complex and drinkable.
Will definitely be exploring these wines more.
The books I have are Wine Folly, Wine Bible, and Sommelier Prep Course

FWIW, a Cote du Rhone is the lowest level of that wine you're going to get in the US. Want a book on southern Rhone? This is awesome: https://www.amazon.com/Chateauneuf-du-Pape-Wine-Book-Harry-Karis/dp/9081201719/ref=asap_bc?ie=UTF8
Should be $10 or $11.
Also - Wine Atlas - Jancis Robinson is a really well known wine critic as well
