Wines I've tried and liked and disliked...not necessarily favorites
  • A to Z Pinot Noir 2007
    Sold Out $16.99
    2012 vintage available for $16.99
    Clean, full flavor, well priced. Also enjoyed Daedalus Cellars Pinot Noir 2006.
  • Rodney Strong Charlotte's Home Sauvignon Blanc 2007
    Sold Out $10.99
    2013 vintage available for $15.99
    Not interested in this - but enjoyed Rodney Strong Alexander's Crown Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
  • King Estate Signature Collection Pinot Gris 2007
    Sold Out $15.99
    2013 vintage available for $15.99
    Most notable feature was the total lack of spice, which was positive because it was uniquely mellow. Finish reminded me of water, of all things. Btw, I ordered the '06 and sent me the '07...not too cool...
  • Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
    Sold Out $56.99
    Drank the 2006 vintage of this high end Chard. It gave me a wicked hangover - I couldn't believe it!
  • Catena Malbec 2006
    Sold Out $23.99
    2012 vintage available for $18.99
    Savory, complex, interesting
  • Elk Cove Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2007
    Sold Out $29.99
    2012 vintage available for $26.99
    Also enjoyed Layer Cake Primitivo, passable, 'stealth marketing'
  • Fess Parker Ashley's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2006
    Sold Out $53.99
    2011 vintage available for $48.99
    Had the Fess PN 2006 - perfectly likable, standard PN - good a sense of the cranberry and strawberry; Also had the Fess 2007 Chard - late '90s/early '00s Chards were favorites of mine, because of distinct vanilla characteristics...i'm assuming though that was an indicator of a less refined Chard, since it's gone - sad to see it go
  • Cline Ancient Vines Zinfandel 2007
    Sold Out $17.99
    2013 vintage available for $14.99
    I like the Cline - robust, tasteful Zin...not a favorite though
  • Joel Gott Zinfandel 2007
    Sold Out $14.99
    2012 vintage available for $12.99
    I am a fan of Gott wines...they are a staple of my collection. This Zinfandel was typically solid from the vintner.
  • Antinori Chianti Classico Peppoli 2006
    Sold Out $24.99
    2011 vintage available for $26.99
    I disliked the wine - call me primitive, but i look for certain characteristics in certain wine varietals and in Chianti, I like to see some pepper. I didn't get that sense here, which left me with a feeling that the wine was indistinct. Why buy it, where there are so many other good choices?
  • Columbia Crest H3 Merlot 2006
    Sold Out $12.99
    2012 vintage available for $10.99
    Didn't have this, but instead the Columbia Crest Reserve 2005. Sadly, it's been a while since I actually drank the bottle, but I remember being underwhelmed. I will stay away from it.
  • Innocent Bystander Pinot Noir 2007
    Sold Out $15.09
    2013 vintage available for $17.99
    What a tragedy that has so many holes. This is about a St. Innocent Pinot Noir 2007 from the Willamette. I loved this wine, its rich, black fruit. A great value that I will choose again.
  • Crocker & Starr Cabernet Franc 2006
    Sold Out $57.99
    So many holes...I am a huge fan of the McKenzie-Mueller vineyard and enjoyed their 2004 Napa Cabernet France. I liked the wine so much I went back for one of my favorites, a Pinot Noir, which I will review when I can.
  • Cambria Julia's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2006
    Sold Out $23.99
    2012 vintage available for $18.99
    Nothing to do with this's a tip for the relationship with your customers and the 'stickiness' of YOUR brand by allowing notes on ALL wines. If I can makes notes about anything, I'll be spending more time here, and looking at your products even more often, eh? Anyway, Paticia Green Cellars 2007 Pinot Noir...just wasn't impressed - primarily because it was a light, red fruit Pinot and I like 'em black fruit.
  • Joel Gott Zinfandel 2006
    Sold Out $16.29
    2012 vintage available for $12.99
    Lost this one...I am a big Gott fan - buy 'em by the case. Enjoyed the 2006 Dillian Ranch. It had the flowery, rose quality I expect in a good Zin. Was not astonished by the wine, but it passed the test.
  • Root 1 Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
    Sold Out $11.29
    2012 vintage available for $12.99
    I wish would expand its capabilities to cover wines consumed, even if not sold on the site...think of the data mining, hint, hint...anyway, lost my previous notes, but it was had a Gott 2007 Cab, which was fine, but not particularly memorable...a typical solid Gott. By contrast, had the Gott 2006 Lodi (Mohr-Fry Ranches) Zinfandel...remarkably rich, smooth, and savory...mixed black cherry and rose...bit of a jammmy bite to this one...mixed well with agnolotti and red sauce.
  • Lemelson Thea's Selection 2006
    Sold Out $34.99
    Thought this was very fruit feel, heavier pinot...well priced, quite good
  • Tomasello Winery Atlantic County Rkatsiteli 2003
    Sold Out $10.99
    Didn't have this...enjoyed an Rkatsiteli from the 'boutique' vineyard of Dr. Konstantin Frank in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. I enjoyed the Reisling mineral combination of this wine. It was a bit sweet and a bit earthy. Didn't overwhelm the palette...nice to savor on a lazy Sunday evening.
  • Benton Lane Pinot Noir 2007
    Sold Out $26.99
    2011 vintage available for $25.99
    • red wine
    • screw cap wine
    • Green wine
    Enjoy this wine...Pinots are my favorite...another solid black fruit choice...will probably buy some more.
  • Geyser Peak Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
    Sold Out $19.99
    2012 vintage available for $16.99
    I truly enjoy McKenzie-Mueller vineyard...this is what came up when I typed it in. This was more of red fruit 2005 Pinot. I've been impressed with everything they do, especially as a California Pinot.
  • Dashwood Sauvignon Blanc 2008
    Sold Out $10.49
    2013 vintage available for $13.99
    Had the Four Graces 2007 PN from the Willamette...pretty ordinary, but not upsettingly bad.
  • Duckhorn Estate Grown Merlot 2006
    Sold Out $79.99
    • red wine
    • collectible wine
    • WE94
    • W&S90
    I'm shocked! that they don't have the wine I want to I'm not. Enjoyed the Natalie's Estate 2006 PN...powerful, smooth, mesmerizing, more black fruit, rich and full.
