Ledge Dante Dusi Zinfandel. This is wild fermented, 50% whole cluster, aged in neutral puncheons. Winemaker is the former assistant at Saxum. It's light-bodied, elegant and spicy -- miles from the stereotypical, cloying zin. $30.

Good idea to add price of bottle. Some of OMs are way out of my price range but some I would be willing to try.

Oh yeahhhhh!

Trying to impose some order on the chaos of my cellar going forward. Anything coming in from now on goes into a spreadsheet on delivery. Also, I need to stop buying wine. :brick:

I have a Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 that I am considering serving tonight. I know it will have the potential to age for a while longer, but wondering if it will suffer being opened now.

Been a bit since I posted so here's a few randos.

First one did not speak to me. Might have needed more time but seemed to be closed and the tannins were not pleasing.

Next three were drinking really well with the ME and Booker being in their perfect place and the Stag's drinking well but maybe ready to take some more age.

I was disappointed in the Merlot and expected much better from N&N.
