Maybe just one. It's not a guaranteed "2 rats per unique bottle" anymore - it's more often than not (except the toothstejnn) been just one rat per bottle since moving to the twice-a-week format. But yeah, someone out there definitely has a Merlot waiting for them.

We received the Cab this afternoon and quickly put it in our wine fridge to cool it down from the 100 degree weather here in So Cal! We opened the bottle tonight and can honestly say it was excellent (and not just because it was free ;-)). It's a nice, light cab with very few tannins. It almost reminded us of a Cabernet Franc. It has hints of blackberry and a little tobacco. It was very drinkable now and don't know that we would cellar it for long. The labels are very cool, but the wine is also great and it's certainly a good woot buy! Glad we ordered two, but maybe we should have made it three...




nice report! can't believe its ~100 in socal. it was nearly freezing (37) here in nannychusetts last night.

I really can't afford this right now, since we are buying a new house, but I am always game for a home-state winery. I'll take 3.

Besides, hubby promised me a nice wine fridge when we moved in, so I have to be able to stock it, right?

Sounds like Kothoga has the Chard and will be posting later tonight. Like Cheron said, there should be a Merlot floating around out there somewhere....

Same here in Central IL.

Clues for tonight?

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

That's correct.

Popped the cork about 30 minutes ago. Right off the bat the Chard has a pleasant toasted pear aroma. Very light to the nose.

The wife and I just had our first glass while I was prepping the piccata. So far it has a crisp, light fruit beginning followed with a pleasant dry wang of an ending. A tad bit acidity, not buttery nor creamy and not much oak thus far. This one is going to need some time to breath before it opens up completely.

The chicken should be out in 20 minutes and I'll post how it pairs with a good Italian dish. So far, I think this is going to be an excellent Chard for people who aren't big on fruity or buttery wines.

EDIT:
Finishing notes:
The wine really opened up after breathing. It's lost that wangy finish and smoothed out a bit. I'd classify it as a decent table wine. It's not something that I'd rush out for, I have enough favorite Chards for that, but it would be a do again. Paired perfectly with our light and fresh meal. As a couple that truly enjoys trying new wines that aren't locally available, we were pleased with this one and look forward to enjoying the complete four pack.

Radio-Coteau?

Or Goosecross Cellars, host of Napa Valley Wine Radio. (and is actually in Napa, unlike Radio-Coteau)

Good guess! But it can't be that easy can it.
Oh I see your edit now. Yeah that's a better guess.

I hope it's Goosecross. This looks like something I need to buy by the baker's dozen and use to make women swoon.

Me too. From their website:
Winemaker Geoff Gorsuch (pronounced Jeff) crafts every wine with our customer's preferences in mind.

This starts in the vineyard with sustainable farming practices without pesticides, and ends in the bottle with wines that reflect true varietal character.

As much as I want to try these Washington wines, I have to pass. Already have too much wine and not enough cash. Next time I am out in the PNW, I'll look for the merlot... definitely want to sample that.

Better yet, why aren't they abbreviating the Latin root words for Merlot and Riesling?
