What I like about wine:

It is potential magic in a bottle, and one never knows how it will be until you crack it, and drink it.

Plantagenet Great Southern Riesling 2009
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $22.99
For Riesling fans, this being currently 'sold 'out' may be a good thing: the reviews/ratings led me to buy a case instead of just trying it. It is thin, watery, a bit over acidic, very slight mineral, and lacking completely for a ~ $15 buck bottle, imo. I love Rieslings of nearly any kind, but this stuff is almost like a cheap pinot grigio diluted with cubes, by your non-wine drinking friends, at the backyard lawn party. 4 bottles into the case, my tasting impressions are all identical, and this stuff will not get better with anymore age. Very disappointed. Something like Pac Rim at <10 bucks is miles ahead. And,a really top Riesling is like from another planet, by comparo...skip this stuff. GL, mD

Pacific Rim Wallula Vineyard Riesling 2007
(this vintage is sold out)
Price: $19.00
Not Zind-Humbrecht, et al, but darn good riesling, imo. Enough mineral/'diesel', which is rare today in cheaper rieslings as so many tend to float toward some 'fruit side'. Well done, good acid, good flavor, very good QPR, imo. Almost 4 stars; solid 3.5...I love rieslings of all kinds and this was a good find.

I would have given it 5 stars, but...fabulous blend of 50-50 Malbec&Tempranillo. Great nose, great legs, great taste. May get even better with a yearish sleeping, but who cares. Best under 12 buck red I've had in a long time, imo.
