    their Burgundy selection (a Raveneau row from floor to ceiling) is superb. As is Bordeaux. And Champs.

    Prices are very good, too. Not cheap since they tend to sell higher end wine in the first place, but certainly competitive bottle to bottle.

    Pulled a Grenache out of the cellar last night with an interesting name: Tir na nog (Isle of Youth, Celtic mythical otherworld). From Oz, 06. Cherry fruit, tasted a bit hot for "only" 14.5% ETOH, but had a little tannin to it so it was a nice drinker.

    Started off with an 06 Peay Pomerian last night. I am still interested in one of you Burg-o-philes having an SVD Peay with a few years on it and getting your opinion.

    Then cracked an 07 Uvas Creek Cab. Sauv. from Stefania Wines. As always, easy drinking and fruit forward. Blueberry jam and pepper.

    Pio - Forgot to mention Andy Peay was in Boston last week ahead of the Nantucket Wine Festival. He stopped in a local wine store and held a tasting. He brought the Pomarium, Chardonnay, Les Titans, Sonoma Pinot, and Scallop Shelf. Pomarium was the star for me with the Chardonnay a close second. I bought some of both to fill in some gaps from my spring order.

    Noice! He's a friggin' big guy, isn't he? Looks more like a bouncer than someone fronting his wine company. Really nice guy.

    Definitely. Bid dude.

    I have a colleague in our SF office who is involved in a winery up there and knows him well. He is in town and i was just telling him I saw him.

    All three were great value for around $30 a piece. Big noses, lovely balance, great drinkers, if all a little light in the tannins. As such, drink them now.

    What vintages for the Sea Scallop & sonoma - what did you think of those wines?
