Very interesting deal up on LB for 2009 Barrel 27 Grenache A Rock and a Hard Place. Only one CT review up for the 09 (good) and dozens up on the 08 (very good).

Can't go too wrong @ 13 bones per bottle.

wine shopper has the 2007 St Supery Napa Valley Cab for $19.99, free shipping over $99. We tasted it on the 2012 rpm Newbie Tour. My notes:

nose: linalool, dusty, peppery, currants.

currants and raspberries in the entry.

tannic, but good balance in the middle palate, with a moderately long, tannic finish.


All-in-all a nice wine with at least a decade of life ahead of it.

I'd recommend it at this price, though not at $30.

I had to look it up:

Linalool (/lɪˈnælɵ.ɒl/) is a naturally occurring terpene alcohol chemical found in many flowers and spice plants with many commercial applications, the majority of which are based on its pleasant scent (floral, with a touch of spiciness).

Now, its off to WineShopper.

Yes, I don't need 6 bottles of anything let alone 12 right now. Skipped the Pinot Gris, but I am looking forward to that Grenache.

OK, so of 12 BV I think I can handle 2 maybe 3. If you and tytiger each want 2-3 we need 3-6 more bottles to have takers. Where's Richard when you need him?

Good price for the US market and I love Sherry. I'd buy if I were buying.

Does anyone know if or how this different from Ty's 'regular' 2010 cab? The "winemaker's cuvée" part of the description (which also seems to be printed on the label) is confusing me. There is no "Winemaker's cuvée" on the winery website.

Thanks

I think we still have 7 or 8 bottles of the 99 GdL. Drinking FANTASTIC, still with tons of life, but needs a good 30-40 mins decant to really shine.

I've picked this up twice before when it has been offered at WTSO - four bottles tucked away in storage and four bottles still sitting in NJ waiting for temps to cool off.

Can't give any rattage, though. I stashed them after they arrived, and probably won't bring them out for another year or two. But I figured that Ty at this price was certainly worth a shot.

If we arrange a Seattle winos event I might bring a bottle.
