Do you mean the Hitching Post label wines or the Hitching Post II wine selection?

If the former, LWC is a much more modern style. I haven't had LWC, but they're on my list when the budget allows me to buy wine again). HP PN is a little more feminine and elegant. Or at least it was 3 or 4 years ago (when I last had it last). I like the HP style occasionally. I like (what I think is) LWC's style.

For some reason I never buy any HP's but this one was good, elegant with a whole lot of acid..I will try again and I guess I will have to try a LWC. Annnd it looks like you're buying again Kyle, cause you are now in for 6 of the Kendric pinots 2 09's 4 10's for a fantastic price I might add

Fine. You can post here but not in
the SoCal gathering on the 19th?

Maybe if you attend, I will open a $300 bottle of D'ontspille LeBlack

2012 Vindemia Viognier Reggatta de Blanc
This was a 'gift' from the winery when Clark came down for a visit.
Actually not too bad. Really pretty good when you consider it's from Temecula.
Nice and crisp, with a hint of sweetness from fruit. Been sipping this well over a week now.
pH 3.44 TA 6.45 AbV 13.7%
We now return to the current Merlot offering above.

I opened it 3 hours ahead. Big wine tannin-wise. Like, fine grainy tannin. They're not bitter but they're there. This didn't have enough fruit for me. I did like it, but I'm not crazy about it. I do not like it at $40. I wouldn't like it at $35 or maybe even $30. Drank it with a Gorgonzola peppercorn filet.

Not enough fruit? Yup one of the hazards of letting your wine get to old

Iirc the one I had the fruit was good.

2007 Purité Unoaked Viognier from Epiphany Cellars, with grilled sea scallops stuffed with basil, garlic, olive oil, and a hint of oil of lavender. Oh my, is that a great combo!
EDIT: Hard to believe this was a wine.woot purchase way back in July 2009. I wouldn't have expected it to age like this, but it was absolutely perfect: all the floral aromas you expect, fresh fruit, sensational mouthfeel. I wish I could get more.

2002 Iron Horse T-bar-T Merlot (with 25% CS). Damn this is good. And tons of life left in it - it's still an adolescent in its evolution. I really wish they hadn't sold the property. I am really hoping we can convince Joy to open/sell something from that vineyard when we're there for the tour. Hint hint hint...
