NOTES:

from wine.woot community winemaker extraordinaire SonomaBouliste himself:

1976 Gundlach Bundschu Cabernet Sauvignon - They had 2 Cabs that year, Rhinefarm (Estate) and Batto Ranch. It was a drought year, and the Batto Ranch was quite exceptional. I had a bottle maybe 4-5 years ago and it was in much better shape than I expected.

1981 Beaulieu Vineyard Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon & 1981 Neyers Cabernet Sauvignon - '81 was a very hot year, and I would expect those wines would likely be well past their prime.

1982 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon & 1983 Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon - Mt. Veeder Cabs were quite tannic and ageworthy. '82 was a more uniformly successful year in the region (at the time, I worked just over the hill at Carmenet).

1988 Laurel Glen Sonoma Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon & 1988 William Hill Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon - '88 was a challenge. Most Cabs were on the lean side and had hard, aggressive tannins in their youth. This led to low ratings, but at least some of those wines have aged and evolved beautifully. Either of these might be wonderful.

1986 Ravenswood Old Hill Vineyard Limited Edition Zinfandel - The '86 Old Hill Zin was massive and incredibly tannic upon release (even more tannic than most mountain Cabs). If well stored, this should be awesome.

1990 Wellington Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Random Ridge (11/24/08, 750ml) - Medium red with a brick edge – a lot of pigment has obviously precipitated. There is still some nice cherry and plum fruit, with notes of sage, spice, licorice, cocoa and brown sugar. There is also an interesting floral aspect, a bit reminiscent of old rose petals. The wine is starting to dry out a bit, but still has a supple richness and good length. There is still some unresolved tannin immediately upon opening, but this softens dramatically after a few minutes. This is likely about as good as this wine will ever get.

GENERAL - Remember, there aren't many great old wines, but there are a lot of great old bottles. After 20 years or more there is a lot of bottle to bottle variation, primarily ascribable to corks. I would expect some "disappointments", but also some good surprises. Sounds like fun.

thank you, Peter, for taking the time to share these notes with us!

I'm super interested, but I cannot by any means do December 13th. December is already chock full of travel for me and I simply can't justify it. January would be immensely better.

Hey TMR! For NYC January tasting our theme is going to be wines that are 10 years and older.
Since you outbid me on the 1975 P. J. Valckenberg Wormser Liebfrauenstiff Kirchenstck Riesling Auslese, how about coming to NYC and opening a botttle.

I also spent a fortune on winebid last week...

I'm probably in, with my participation the more likely the sooner we settle on a date so I can book the tickets without paying out the ass.

I may also bring wine. Could be PS (duh). Could be port. Could be CS. :-D

Alright, alright, if the rest of you want to do 12/13, I SUPPOSE I can make the attempt to get out there for then. I'll just have to drive. Hopefully there won't be snow.

Er. Scratch that. A flight is all of $115, assuming we settle before the end of the week. I can swing that.

According to my 1980 Bob Thompson Encyclopedia,

1971 was the weakest vintage of the decade
1976 was Strong and Tannic. Mute now but room for hope.


My Vintage pocket guide lists the following:

71 CS(Sonoma) - 14 (Average)
76 CS(Napa) - 15 (Average)


Tempting, but not sure if I want to be in Chicago in December ..... brrrrr

well, considering how much interest there is from out-of-towners, i'd like to explore the possibility of a date in January. this should give folks a little more time to make affordable travel arrangements & not conflict with holiday schedules. i'd like to throw out two potential dates:

1/10 (strong preference)
1/24

please respond to this post & express your preference accordingly.

Well, according to my quick little flight search, January ends up being more expensive unless I make the return flight be 6am on Monday (getting me back here at 8:20 and POSSIBLY into work by 9:30). But then that also means an extra hotel night, which counteracts the whole cheaper flight thing.

So I can remember quickly, and for oppsie's sake, too, in case she pops in here and wants in - Assuming a stay at HIExpress in Deerfield, despite the slight out-of-the-wayness, it's damn cheap and still pretty darn close to the airport and close to the loop:

12/12 or 12/13 - 12/14, Flight = $119pp, Hotel = $48 per night
1/9 - 1/11, Flight = $153pp, Hotel = $50 per night
1/10 - 1/11, Flight = $136pp, Hotel = $50 per night
1/23 - 1/25, Flight = $153pp, Hotel = $50 per night
1/24 - 1/25, Flight = $136pp, Hotel = $50 per night

Priceline tends to find darned cheap rentals for cars, too, so I'd probably be renting a car for transportation.

Alternative is to drive. But the weather worries me a bit. So I guess in the interest of COST alone, I'd be voting for the 12/13 after all.

Edit: Unless we drive, in which case, whatever

Edit2: Sounds like oppsie is in and we're driving.

229 round trip out of dulles, 180 out of BWI. But parking at BWI ($27) and gas to get there, no marginal cost to Dulles (other than time). Hmmm....

I prefer the 24th, but if it's the 10th I could celebrate my birthday Wonder if I could find a reasonably priced wine, that would taste good, as old as me?!

vintage ports, even older ones, can be relatively reasonably priced & are definitely long-lived.

I can't imagine it being 65 in January. Though I do remember it being in the 70's on Dec. 1st a few years ago. Anyway, Dec. or Jan. I will be there with bells on.

Berry berry interesting...I may have to keep this one in mind. I still have my free Southwest RT ticket to use...well $50 since it technically expired and I have to pay to extend it. Still...$50 and a hotel stay and a rental car and a tasting fee and the cost of dinner...all to taste really old wines with friends (new and old)...yeah, I'll definitely need to keep this in mind.

And if you book the room through me and are willing to stay just a wee bit outside of Chicago, the room is only $50/night. SO...

Oh yeah, use priceline for the rental car and try asking for like $10/day. You should be able to get it.

Here is a question...

What is one is a wine tasting n00b? I know I like wine (and pairing it with food!), but really I am not good with all the fancy terminology like 'tannins' and 'oak flavour' etc etc etc.

Will I get ostracized? Will you all point and laugh? Because I specifically headed into the forums looking for something like this.

I'm a newb as well. I have been to a few tastings now and it is the best way to learn. You get to try multiple wines and talk with people who know more than you. Also, you get to meet some really cool people.

Welcome to the forums!!! Seriously, T the C is right, the best way to learn all this stuff is to get out there and TASTE! We all start at nothing, and we learn from each other, and we're happy to reciprocate and teach others in turn. So come on out and join us sometime Oh and tannins? WE'LL teach you about TANNINS.

I was all set to go to a tasting this past spring... or was it summer... but then everything was crazy hectic so I did not get to make it. So between this one and this other one I see next month I am going to something! If I have to be dragged out of my house.

Oh, wait, you people are strangers and no one knows where I live. Hrm, guess I have to get myself motivated.

Recent successful flavor experiments include: Mexican Dark Chocolate, Lavender Mascarpone, Toasted Coconut Lemon Swirl, Banana Walnut, Vanilla Ginger, Mojito, Avocado (aka Gelavodato).

Recent failures: Peach, Pistachio (I can't seem to get this one right).
