Some notes from AlaWine.com:
Red Zeppelin Black Zeppelin 2005 is a big, bold, and ultimately beautiful red wine blend of Syrah, Alicante, and Cabernet. It is dry and full bodied, with powerful fruit flavors and firm tannins. Suggested retail price is $50. Overall composite score: 97 points.
I like to cook with wine. In fact, I drank a bottle last night while cooking dinner!

I wanted the acid & pH to be roughly the same at the end of fermentation as at harvest. It's an E facing hill on the cooler side of Paso so it wasn't dangerous.
Why did you blend two vintages into one wine? Not enough wine for the first vintage? Left overs? Was it always planned to be that way?
Side question: You have one purchase on one of the woot sites. What did you buy?

In case you're on the Central Coast next August, our Cal Poly enology & viticulture scholarship fundraiser is an extravaganza of wine, food, music, and absurd behavior. Our attorneys have advised us not to post videos or pictures . . . but we can tell you where to find them. Or make your own!
Wait; Cow Piley has an enology and viticulture program? Since when? I don't remember one when I attended.

So why do you show on the label a Red Zeppelin that has crashed? I wouldn't think you'd want your product associated with "crash and burn".
