I've kinda considered myself better than the rest of you because NC is always on the list. I loved the previous Scott Harvey offering. Can Thursday be a plain old boring Scott Harvey label? Huh, Huh, pretty please?

Edit: Oh and I was in World Market today and they had the naked Cycles Gladiator label. That's ok, but "comic books" aren't?

Oh, and btw, not to sidetrack this discussion, but we just popped the cork on our Mumm Cuvee Red last night, and HOLY HELL....THAT WAS SPECTACULAR BUBBLY!! The Cuvee M Blue was outstanding as well (still have yet to open the brut). I've had much more expensive bubbly, but both of these were far, FAR superior to bottles 3X price. Had I but known, I would have been in for 3! CURSES!!

OK, back to your regularly scheduled programming....

How about those labels!!

does anyone have any suggestions for such a place?

thanks!

I work for a non-profit that does a lot of events. Some very small and some extremely large. We have used the first four on the list above. I didn't do the planning so I cannot give you that perspective, but as an attendee everything was wonderful.

The others on the list say they can hold a group of 50...

Hope that helps.

ScottHarveyWines wrote:Yes, it will be an annual offering. .8% RS is actually lower than a lot of the new world style zinfandels have. Dryness is always a balance of acidity and RS. The acid is high (.7) with the pH being low at 3.4 so at .8 RS the wine is still perceived dry. In Germany a wine can legally be labeled dry if it is with in 2 tenths of the acidity. So, a Riesling with .9 acid can have as much as 1.1% residual sugar and still be labeled as dry (troken). This wine falls within the same definition with a .7 acid and .8 RS.



Scott, why did you choose Germany to go to school? It's not the first country I think of when I think wine, though they turn out some great wines.

Thanks for the info, and I'm still on the fence.
I want something different from my previous(yet to be shipped) purchase- 3 each of the Wellington 2006 Noir de Noirs- Old Vines, Syrah- Sonoma Valley Estate, and
Grenache- Estate Sonoma Valley.
Being a newbie to fine wines, I'm wondering if to buy this or wait until the next offering midweek.

If Calistoga is an option you could also try Solage. They’re the new kids in town. Probably pricey, but conveniently located just outside of town.

And to bring this back to the current offering... I’m in for 1.

On another note... only one more post and I will break into double digits. And it only took 15 months. Wahoo!

Here's betting that the next 10 take you less than 15 months! Hope to see you around.

Having the Red Dot Wellington Mystery Tonight, and I have no idea what this is. The only thing that I've been reasonably assured of when drinking these two bottles is change. Cruel, also delightful change. Both bottles(Red and Orange) have been experiences unto themselves, and I look forward to hearing what exactly they are.

Not too many to count, but dang. This place has a way of building a cellar for you.

Even now, it bounces. I humbly advise haste, dear self-described newbie. This is truly a user friendly wine, just as Scott's website says.

My wife is pretty much going to kill me for buying this but I am very excited to just have these labels! We were in Napa in July and since then have been very addicted...we did a California Wine Tour with a total of 11 people on the limo bus and it was just incredible. On a side note, my Wellington Mystery pack was delivered Friday and my Wellington Noir de Noir x3 will be delivered tomorrow! Now, if only I can get lucky and be a labrat while my wife is on a work trip in Miami....

As far as number of bottles of a single wine, however, I think it might be up there. Most of the single-wine offerings don't sell as many units for obvious reasons.
