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 $21.99
    Clean, full flavor, well priced. Also enjoyed Daedalus Cellars Pinot Noir 2006.
  • 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 wine.com sent me the '07...not too cool...
  • Grgich Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2005
    Sold Out $56.99
    2010 vintage available for $49.99
    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 $28.99
    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 fruit...got 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 $15.99
    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 $14.99
    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.
  • Cambria Julia's Vineyard Pinot Noir 2006
    Sold Out $23.99
    2012 vintage available for $21.99
    Nothing to do with this wine...here's a tip for Wine.com...enhance 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 wine.com 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.
  • 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 $12.99
    Had the Four Graces 2007 PN from the Willamette...pretty ordinary, but not upsettingly bad.
