Dang it!!! Teach me to take the time to go for 2 sets instead of 1 set. No first sucker this time (although I'm surprised PetiteSirah didn't get it either!)

Well, I could be reading a good book - finishing one, to be precise - but here I am to answer your questions, technical and trollish!

Oh, and Wine Woot wisely rejected my first Vintners Voicemail . . . I can send it as an MP3 to anyone interested. These guys helped:

Two very short videos (Pink and Brown Zeppelin AVI, respectively) at http://www.youtube.com/stillmanbrown

Oh yeah - clone 3 petite sirah, medium/heavy toast AO and HO, about 40% new. Some of the six barrels made were half barrels. Denser than the last Black Zeppelin, though not unrelated.

Well, WW doesn't get all 112 cases, though I will likely have to cough up more than half. That's a marketing expression, not a reaction to guzzling two bottles in five minutes.

Stillman. In for 3. Tasted this courtesy of you and PS after D&D. Can you throw down some info on aging and what to expect long term with this wine?

So is this a wine you should enjoy on a special occasion, or is this the kind of wine you could have any ordinary day?

How do the Standard Black Zeppelin and the Hames Valley Black Zeppelin differ in taste?

Your link is not the same wine. This is the Hames Valley. See Cesare's link above.

I'm trying to stay out of the sun, and party with a lot of young people. Tannic structure is 'moderate' and part fruit, part oak - that said, it was in barrel almost two years so it did get a chance to open and soften before bottling. If I only had two bottles I'd open one soon and the other in 5 years.

Point taken ... could find no notes on the Hames vineyard specifically.

I'm still wary.

Agreed I'm also wondering on the difference and if Hames Valley contributes fruit to the standard and if not why not?

The Monterey was softer and bottled younger, I remember a commenter remarking on young vinuous/musty aromas that blew off, it was more blueberry with lighter tannins. This Hames Valley is bigger, denser blackberry/blueberry, and doesn't smell like compost.

Winery Labrat (got it from Stillman today).

We also had a bottle of this at the Dark & Delicious After-Party, which everyone enjoyed!


Tonight's report: YUM! or in Leet terms: NOM! NOM! NOM!


It is a deep velvet purple, bordering on black, incredibly dark with thick, prominent drip legs legs. Not much heat on the nose or tongue, surprising since it is 14.7% alcohol.

Some almost face smashing tannins after 15 minutes open (on second larger, taste), but those had mostly disappeared after 40 minutes or so after opening, leaving some nice tannins.

Seems like a nicely balanced wine that can drink well now or be held for a while. Even though drinking most PS wines this early is considered infanticide by PetiteSirah, our leading expert and PSith Master.

While most PS wines are excellent with Lamb or BBQ dishes, I've had them with steak & Prime Rib as well, and they've worked well. This would go well with most beef, lamb, & pork dishes.

I give it an 89-90 score.




After drinking tonight's Petite Sirah!



Edit: Oh, and I went in for 2 sets, but will probably email service to up it to 3. Only went 2 while trying for 1st sucker. In retrospect, I should have just planned on emailing Service to up it to 3 to begin with. Darn Time Machine is on the fritz!!!

Yes.




Sorry, couldn't resist. You could do both, and not go wrong. Just let it breathe for a while, tasting every so often to see where you like it.

Sorry for my ignorance. So how good is this wine. For example if Jesus will want to turn water to wine, this will be the result?.

You didn't get first sucker because you were not the first one to push the "I Want One" button. The time you push the "I Want One" button is by and large the time used to determine first sucker. Once you push that button you have a little time to complete the order and still keep your time.

And, I bet you can't up your order. Wine.Woot now transmits the order directly to the winery, and your order confirmation is a confirmation that the winery has accepted the order. The last time I tried to up, customer service said they no longer can once the order has been transmitted to the winery. I think the days of being able to up orders are gone.

Juvie: 30+24+4; Sellout: 6+7+0
Rags: 3+2+3
Drunk: 69+94+15 wine, 20+29+4 non-wine
Rugrat: 0+0+0; Refunded: 2+3+1

If you are a PSith PSadawan, then the answer is a resounding YES!

However, if you are a heretic, then double YES!

I personally did not care for the other 09 black zep. PS.
So I'm not ready to drop another $50 on its older brother. More for the rest of you I guess.

I have enjoyed Stillman's other wines though.

I think this is a different vineyard, so different aroma/taste.

BUT ... you figure you can weasel one from me later, since you are friends with my nephews. HAH! No PS for you!

Anything with the Stillman name will sellout here. It is like giving a toddler an open bag of M&Ms, before ou realize it, it is gone and all the other toddlers are screaming because they didn't get any.

Jut wait till the mid day tomorrow, there will be a lot of whining.
