2009 Vino Noceto Sangiovese

These are so easy to drink.

If there is a woot off, and these show up (or the 2x2 pack) SIWBM is off and I'm in.

I agree with you. The QPR on that stuff is just insane.

I too had some of that tonight in my hotel before going to dinner. Almost certainly better than what ill get at the restaurant

Yes, I traveled with my wine. It's a habit. I have an issue.... I like good wine; good wine is far too rare.

Additional comments about 2 of the wines I shared with friends yesterday;


(L) 2011 Bodegas Paso Robles Albariño Galicia Jack Ranch Vineyard
(R) 2010 Bodegas M Albariño Querida Jack Ranch Vineyard


I've been wanting to taste these two California Albariños side by side since I bought them. Although they're different vintages and made by different wineries, the fruit is sourced from the same "Jack Ranch" vineyard.

Ideally, they would have been the same vintage - that would have been fun but it was still interesting to compare the two, which turned out to be quite different from one another.

The Bodegas Paso Robles "Galicia" was lighter in color, had brighter fruit and bigger acidity. The Bodegas M "Querida" had a malolactic component with a subdued palate and fuller, more viscous mouthfeel.

While both wines were enjoyable, 3 out of 3 preferred the Bodegas Paso Robles "Galicia" Albariño.

Agree. Wish it would show up again or maybe on a woot-off.

Tonight: 2006 Dromos Maremma Toscana. Drinking incredibly well and paired perfectly with spaghetti & meatballs.

2008 Inspiration Alexander Valley Zin. A touch toward the riper flavours than I'd prefer, but it's nice, balanced, and delicious. If it was a touch more towards the red fruit than black fruit it'd be my ideal Zin.

I didn't have much of it, but it's drinking very well. It's one of the few things I really wish I'd bought more of. I think it drinks well above its $20 price point. Sadly, I didn't take any detailed notes...I was at work, technically.

I can say that it was universally well received. There was not time to allow for proper decanting, but, for my palate, it was not necessary (and I didn't have one of my handy dandy Soiree Aerators in my pocket, darn it!).

I'm still attempting to discern the differences, still pretty new to decent bubbly, so you'll have to make do with 'it was pretty tasty and all enjoyed'. Sad, but true.
The Cab was quite nice, not as complex as I'd hoped for, and less bottle bouquet than expected; I'll revisit in awhile.
The Peller was flat out tasty. great thick, but not cloying mouth, and kept evolving as it warmed. 187's are just too small...

Had some grilled salmon, with green beans and sweet potatoes (all steamed) with a bottle of 2007 Buena Vista Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard Series Ramal Vineyard. The Pinot is drinking beautifully, and paired well with the salmon.
