2004 Cosentino Napa Cab! WoW, classic Napa Cab. Dry, Tanic, Oak...it's got that Napa flavor. Floods the entire palate, and plenty of finish. The odor is out of this world. And, as Werner would have said, "I'm not a guy in a diner about this"

Is this the bottle you gave me? I passed on Bedrock last email, but I don't think I'm passing again... too many comments about how awesome it was. I was a little overwhelmed by how many different bottles they offered, though, to be honest.

It is the same. And all I can say is you should buy as many bottles of Morgan's wines as your creditcard will allow you! I have sampled 3 different bottles from the last offering and all have been way beyond delicious, and from what I have tasted I think they will last many years. This is a young wine and i'm pretty sure these will be right up your alley. Not to mention if you don't like them I will buy them from you...nice guarantee huh

Maybe you should suggest to WD or Neil that this would be a good winery to try and get on wine.woot. They just might pursue them.

His production is too small and he is just getting an additional person to join the winery and help him. He was a one man show up until now.

I'll make sure to open the bottle before the next email.

The PN was delicious. Best PN ever? No. I liked the one you brought to klez's better. Worth the $20/full bottle? Easily. Red fruits, nice acid, some mushroom. I'm back in the PN game!

Give them a call before you go and they will take very good care of you. We ended up staying there for 2-3 hours, because after a brief tour and the standard tastings, they started opening up the library wines -- good stuff! We left with 3 cases!

'05 Victory and an '09 Pedroncelli Mother Clone Zin.

Both are damn great wines! We made the chicken that we had for lunch at Pedroncelli.

We're celebrating my wife's XXth birthday tonight, so it seemed appropriate to open some wines from the tour.

I was wondering if I should open one...and then I pulled out 4 bottles, which were 05 Victory, which made it a pretty easy decision.

We've now moved on to Bailey's in the coffee, or 18yo Glenfiddich Scotch.

Wife and I enjoyed it. Only second time I've had a Torrontes, not familiar with them. It was crisp with tropical fruit and some minerality. I would say it was somewhat similar to a CA Pinot Gris? For the 8 delivered a no brainer. Nice summer sipper or in our case, paired well with king crab legs and garlic shrimp on the BBQ. Hope this helps!

***thanks for the PM!

Edit: after thinking it through I would not say tropical fruits...more like peach? Nevertheless, it was fruity and aromatic with perceived sweetness, though not sweet at all. Hope this makes sense?
