En Tirage Russian River Valley Sparkling Wine Vintage 1992. Nice fruit, but none of the yeastiness I like in a bubbly. This is the best part: Produced and bottled by Chateau Beaux Hauts (pronounced bozo).

If Kent ever offers a PN, I will absolutely not miss it. I have never had any "high end" PN by him, but I need to.

Opened a 2007 Radog Riesling last night, 2013-09-29, to have with some Japanese curry and found some wonderful diamonds I thought I'd see if I could get some decent pics of. Didn't come out as well here as in real life.
It was drinking well, taking on some characteristics of an aging Riesling with hints of petrol.
Drink up or hold.

Was just cleaning out open bottles and poured something out of a 375 that made me go WOW! This had been flooded with Ar for keeping and I had totally forgotten about it. First sip, no question now despite hesitation earlier. Really happy I grabbed a couple woots of 2004 Muir-Hanna Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Particelli Vineyards. But I think I have to share this...

Delightful. Burgundian. Rich, yet subtle. Tart yet savory. A hint of barnyard. Too bad/good thing it's a .375.

Day 3 on a 2010 Penfolds Bin 28 Syrah. Woot introduced me to this wine a while back and it is a dependable choice when faced with a limited selection.

Didn't like the one I tried last year...too sweet. Wonder if this one is any different.

We had pork chops and our last bottle of 2006 Twisted Oak !@#$@ (the red one). Delicious. Drink up if you have any left - I think it's got about a year left on it.

Decided to pop a 1997 Ardente Espressione Cabernet Sauvignon to see if I wanted to jump on the plus deal before it ends...

The first bottle I tried when these were first offered on WW was less then impressive, but this one is just singing! What to do...

I did not get in on these in the beginning but have steadily purchased every time they have been offered since this spring and have yet to have a less than stellar bottle.Having drank at least 4/96 5/97 and several each 01 02 06 07 I myself am in on max of the mix pack and the 97.

tonight is 2007 Kaesler CS Barossa Valley - a nice thursday evening drinker.

I think its good, nice fruit, good mouth feel. Not much of a finish though. It's best with some air, 1 hour +. I think its a wonderful price on it. It's a close out because of a label design change so if you like it stock up.

My wife loves the Pinot blanc. She's worked through nearly 2 cases. At $6 a bottle I'm not complaining.

Bevmo had the orbiter in their .5 cent sale but I didn't really care for it.

I've been hesitant to open one up thinking I'm killing a baby. CT reviews suggest it needs 3 hours to open up. Do you agree?

Other half of this. The wife opened a 07' renwood Viognier. It wasn't her style so the rest may be sangria fodder. Based on tasting it though I think it would make a killer sangria.

2007 Langhe Nebbiolo Vigna Sant'Anna. Great QPR. So hard to find affordably priced Nebbiolo/Barolo.

Then moved on to a 2008 Inspiration Vineyards Zinfandel.
