How was the 85 GunBun? I haven't opened a bottle of GB in a long time. I've known Jeff B for many years. Great guy - wonderful wines.

Anticipating that the wine Wooters might want to know how many cases of these wines we made, here you go;

2006 vintage; 2250 cases produced
2004 vintage; 492 cases produced and
Block 9; 451 Cases produced.

Enjoy!

How much cellar time left on the 2004? Looks like a drink now!

Any reason the 2005 wasn't included in this offer? Would have made for a nice vertical. Looks like you kept that vintage and gave WW the others since none of the others are currently on your winery website or in your cellar.

Edit - Looks like the 2006 has a short drinking window as well. Any comment on this?

Thanks for jumping on board! I enjoy dark, full-bodied syrahs with tar and/or smokey notes. Are any of these made in that style?

This was a tough call - we wanted to offer 6 bottles and it was either a vertical of 3 vintages or 2 vintages and the Block 9. In he end, the inclusion of block 9 won out, which btw, is one of my favorite vineyard blocks.

I think the 04 is drinking nicely now and I think the 06 has more runway left.

This wine is definitely full bodied and does have some smokey notes. One reviewer described as having "notes of blackberry, herbs, spiciness and a slight note of smoky oak...". Ripe - but not over ripe - small black fruit, balanced acidity with a wonderful long finish showing concentrated dark fruit.

When we crafted this wine, we were referencing the great wines of the Rhone, and the goal was to weave together and integrate the flavors and complexities that make for great syrah.. For me, the art of winemaking involves crafting wines that are powerful and elegant, intense yet subtle all at the same time...giving the wine drinker the whole package.

As a result, this wine is not the "aggressive tanin" version that has appeared on the scene in California of late and this was by design. Hope this helps.

Yes it does! Another question: do you have a tasting room in DCV? If so, where? Were the grapes for all three offered today sourced from the same vineyard? Where in Dry creek? I am a huge fan of Dry Creek Valley, particularly the big, bold Zins and frequent thea area (rochioli, wilson, bella, bradford mountain/c donatello, dutcher crossing...u get the idea) and curious about both questions above. Thanks!

Any shot at making the 2005 available to the wooters who wooted on this deal for special pricing to complete the vertical?

We do not have a Terlato Family Vineyards tasting room exclusively dedicated to these wines as the idea behind TFV was for us to produce wines from the best of our vineyard holdings and exclusively dedicated to old world varietals. As a result, we have TFV wines from Stags Leap District, Rutherford Bench, Russian River and Dry Creek with another on it way from Santa Rita Hills is Santa Barbara.

The grapes chosen for these wines are from generally the same vineyard area, with the Block 9 coming from a designated vineyard site within our Dry Creek vineyards.

We make a couple of Zins from our Dry Creek vineyards as well and our vineyards are located at the confluence of Dry Creek and Russian River. Really fantastic dirt in which we can make some delicious wines.

Btw, love Tom Rochioli's wines. He is amazing!

Thanks for your support. Ejoy in good health.

I will ask the team at woot if they would be willing to offer the 2005's to those who might want to complete the vertical. Great suggestion.

Are any of the grapes sourced from your Alderbrook vineyards? Always a fan of your wines, but I would like a little more detail on which vineyards the grapes are sourced from in DCV.

It may be easier to just run a special deal thru your website. I'm sure WD would be okay with that! They're usually pretty flexible at WW. Or include special pricing deal with packing info when wine is shipped. Done quite often with other wineries.

Oh boy...I will do my best not to go too deep on the "ratings" discussion.

SH at the WA could possibly enjoy the high alcohol, heavily extracted wines I spoke of earlier (and this is not a criticism, it's merely an observation). If this is the case, SH might be indifferent to the style of winemaking present in these wines - which I would describe as intense and complex, yet much more subtle - kind of like the difference between Dolly Parton and Kate Moss - both talented, but maybe one is a little more subtle than the other.

My suggestion to those who enjoy wine is to be your own critic and your own judge. There are so many wonderful wines available today - try them for yourself and you be the judge. Why let someone else have all the fun.

Great question. Yes. My family owns the Alderbrook Winery and the vineyards as well. In fact, we purchased Alderbrook because of the quality of vineyards. So the vineyards and grapes chosen for these wines are indeed on the Alderbrook property.

This is very tempting especially with the 2007 Syrah included. Now if only you guys can throw in some Chimney Rock Cabs to top it off... ;)

Plus Tito is a cool guy and being from Austin doesn't hurt. I have had better vodkas though, but Tito has a very nice QPR.
