1998 Burgess Napa Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Selection

13% alcohol, absolutely delicious.

Makes me think of RPM.

At a retirement party, someone brought a Domenico Wines 2001 100% Syrah. No location specified other than California. Half the bottle left so I'll do a more critical tasting tomorrow.

Anyone know much about Domenico?

Surprisingly elegant on the palate. Textbook St. Joseph. Meat, iron, beautiful fruit. Loved it.

2008 Saxon-Brown Zinfandel One Oak

Tastes great, not hot but kind of flabby...maybe a bad bottle?

I've been really iffy on the two of these I have had so maybe not a bad bottle.

Tonight: Pedroncelli mother clone Zin from the tour. Nothing to write home about but not bad for $15. Won't stand up to the buena vista ramal pinots that were the same price though.

Based on that comment, should be good for the $9 woot price though.

We had a 2009 Aubert Larry Hyde & Sons Chardonnay last night. Was really very good, but probably not worth its list-price. Still very enjoyable though - the oak really helped to focus the flavors instead of overpowering them.

Something to go with fresh San Marzano tomato sauce. Probably Sangiovese or Barbera.

Also, tytiger, care to part with one of your Broc Grenache from yesterday?

I have been dormant for a little while, however tonight is:

2004 Louis Jadot Santenay Clos de Malte with some citrus peppered salmon.

This chardonnay is on the tail end of its drinking window, however it paired nicely with the fish. It is a crisp chard that is not buttery at all. I wasn't in the mood for a dry Riesling, so it worked out well.

First bottle was Stuart cellars 08' Zin. - cooked, poured down the drain.

2nd bottle R2 09' Black Pine pinot noir
Slightly smoky, nice coloring and mouth feel and a good amount of red fruit. Would purchase again at sub $20.

The wife opened a pine ridge Chenin Blanc + viognier which she enjoyed quite a bit.
