Man, y'all are making it hard to sleep in, but I know myself, waking up and driving two hours probably isn't working. I'll check in with cagirl and see what time y'all should be in glen Ellen.

Thanks to Inspiration vineyards, Jucas J./Meeker, and Super Sonoman for a great day of wine, food and camaraderie!

I will be posting photos of the event soon. Is there anyone who wishes to be excluded from the photos?

+1. Thanks to the winemakers, Neil, and all the wooters+. It was a fun time. Sorry we had to cut out early to make it over to Wellington. Had to get our hands on some Duke!

Thanks everyone who participated, it was definitely a great day, and I believe fun was had by all.

Super Sonoman blew us away with his hospitality, the luncheon was awesome, amazing wine, great food, good times!

I don't have the knowledge to compare it to any prior year, but it's definitely a good daily drinker at an awesome price. I've yet to be disappointed by Peter's wines.

CaGrl opened a bottle at The Fig Cafe with dinner and I thought it was great. It was my first Duke, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I would say it drinks like a wine twice it's price!

Link worked for me, great pics ajrod27.

That 1983 Clos Du Val Merlot magnum had the funkiest, barnyard, manure nose on it when Super Sonoman opened it, I loved it!! It's one of those noses Vaynerchuk would rave about - lol! Oh and the wine wasn't bad either, not at all what you'd expect for a 30 year old merlot!

I've added captions to some photos to identify winemakers. I'm not sure if the woot folks would be OK with unveiling their identities. Comments anyone?

S and I would prefer to remain anonymous. You could use trifecta/trifecta+1 though.

Sorry I missed you all Saturday. I had to get cleaned up to go to the Sonoma County Harvest Fair awards ceremony. At least we got some golds: '07 Cab, '09 Grenache, and (best of class) '10 Petite Sirah that some of the RPM tourists got to try at WineDavid's party.

Bummer. It wasn't listed on the fall shipment current releases PDF that got sent out. I would have added a bottle or two.
