I'm in....can't pass on a chance at Wellington Victory. I've been wanting to try that and I love the other Wellington wines. Pretty good discount over the $50 retail price.

Plus apparently I need to keep buying wine so this silly purple square next to my name goes back to a more reasonable color.

1) Peter, how does this vintage compare to the last Victory offering (IIRC, the '04)?

2) The description of the winery forgot to mention that you also have a bit of the most *delicious* grape. Speaking of which, I just found out today that after a month of hard studying, I passed the patent bar exam (which I also took today). How about throwing in a bottle of leftover "Dr. Durif" under a "The Duke" label so I can celebrate properly? I'm really frustrated that all I got 13 months ago was just that one glass... it was awesome.

3) looking forward to the most informal nyc.w.w gathering yet!

I'll only be around for a few minutes tonight, but will check in tomorrow.

My apologies to all for not posting another blog before crush started. It started with a bang - over twenty percent of our grapes came in during the first seven days - so much for a bell shaped curve. This morning I was in the vineyard at first light (6:35) for Viognier harvest. Tommorow AM is the last of the Sauvignon blanc and the first of the Cabernet.

Dood, apologies are never needed (but appreciated). You do you what you need to do first and keep bringing us our juice. We'll have time to harass you with inane questions later.

WD, et al--

Ok, seriously seriously bad for my finances.

But, I will trade SF Opera tix for ratting. Or the answers to some test I may give next semester if you're in my class. Or lots of positive energy. Or cookies (I'll even find the time to make cookies). Or love. Or two pugs. Anything. I'll give you anything. JUST LET ME BE A RAT. I'll totally be your best friend. I'll write you a poem. Or a punk rock love song. Or a three page analytical paper on the cultural significance of Wellington, with a racial-gender spin.

love,
j

It depends on how you prefer your wine. It has refinement and balance, so it can be enjoyed now if you prefer young, fruity wines. It also should develop nicely over the next ten years or more.

Well, Peter, that's the perfect reason to sell two together....try one now and save the other one for later. Sort of the wine version of Now'n'Later.

When I first started sipping wine, not quaffing it, a good friend said always buy three bottles. One for now, one for later and one just in case.

I am so in, and soooo willing to rat.

I visited the winery last month (undercover as it were) and very much enjoyed their hospitality. Noir de Noir, mmmmmmm.

Ugh, my resistance is futile, still going to sleep on it (don't ask why--and what's next WD some Scott Harvey wine next Monday? My credit card HATES you; no really it does)

SB, thanks for the rose offering earlier. In this description it eludes to these wines really need some cellar time, are we talking as long as the recently offered vineyard designates?

What do you recommend as the early part of the drinking window? (without 2+ hours of decanting) And are we talking about a 15+/- cellar life with these?

1) I have a personal preference for the 2005. I think the general comparison that 2004's are more about instant gratification and 2005's will be more ageworthy holds with this wine.

2) There is no "leftover" Dr. Durif. It gets used well, and I wouldn't mind having a little bit more around some years.

3) Congratulations!

Since I won't be at work Friday - going to see the Dalai Lama - I can only rat through Sparky or Java. But I'll be surprised if this doesn't sell out.

More attractive young than the 2005 vineyard designate Cabs, but better aging potential as well. I don't want much with this wine - I just want it all: power & finesse, structure & suppleness, intensity & balance.
