    Was very good, but paid strip club prices for it, so I'll wait until I get a better deal.

    I assume you did the tasting today? How was it? My favorite in Sonoma. I loved it. Matt can poo-poo it all he wants.

    Had a cheap ($13) bottle of Oregonian Muller-Thurgau. My first experience with the varietal, and it wasn't bad--tasted like a poor man's Riesling. Will look for better (German) representations in the future.

    the thivin seems to be changeable in the bottle. i bought some from a friend, who subsequently was so disappointed as compared to what he had the first time that he accused the winery of "extending" the harvest by bottling not-their-own production. two weeks later we tasted it together and it was fine. wine does funny things some times.

    No, it was a few weeks ago now -- have just been running since our return. It was the only vineyard we had time for (major flight problems), and I couldn't even do the private tour that I had arranged. The tasting experience, well, I mean, we went into a room where I nice guy poured me some wine and I tasted them while he discussed them. I've never done it before. I didn't talk about the wine much, and since it was the only one I was doing, I swallowed. Can't say that aspect of the experience was you know, special in any way. The Sauvy is fine though. BTW, k, how long should I hold the Sauv and the PN before drinking them? I bow to your experience.

    Well, that's exactly what it is! Which is not to disparage it. ~ H
