Thats a good call. Was thinking maybe Ace of Spades
don't think that would ever need to be offered at a discount but i'm no expert
Opened up a good one for the Razorback game
Rose champagne tends to carry a premium price from my experience.
Good luck. I've always liked Musselman. Good local talent doing well down there.
No Eathan Edwards but this is tasty.
I think I have a bad cork on a bottle delivered today. Of the four bottles shipped it only happened to one bottle and it was one of the central bottles. Using logic I wouldn’t imagine that would be an issue with shipping temp. I have never had an issue with shipping problems. Should I contact the winery?
Yes and they will send you a new bottle
happened to me and they have insurance for shipping issues
This is probably as good as any wine I’ve ever had from Napa. Super concentrated.
2008 Dalla Valle Vineyards Maya
Already bid on four bottles for the upcoming WineBid auction
2 bottles of 2016 to kalon highest beauty —very excited have been looking for this for awhile
1 2016 realm to kalon
1 2012 kata beckstoffer bourn-I will basically buy any bottle of kata that is available anywhere. My absolutely favorite
Did a little Chenin side by side this weekend.
This reminds me, the Dalla Valle Maya I drank last night was won on winebid in 2013.
i think i've only bid on 1-2 bottles that others have bid on at this point.
Booked weekend trip to Willamette Valley the weekend before Memorial Day. Very excited.
This is a really old quote but a question came up that you may be able to answer. Those Barberescos on the top row have several different names. I think I see Ovello there and I have some that says Asili. What’s the difference? Is it designating producers, vineyards or something different.
Those are the vineyards within Barbaresco. Particularly in Piedmont, Burgundy, and Champagne you'll see producer, village (or appellation), and then vineyard if it's a single vineyard or "cru". So for those wines, the producer is Produttori del Barbaresco from the DOCG of Barbaresco and the Ovello vineyard, Riserva designate (aging implication). On the right, you've got the producer of Malvira, from the appellation/region of Reoro, and the cru/vineyard of Trinita, Riserva designate.
Couple things to look out for to indicate producer in Italy will be stuff like "Azienda Agricola", "Produttori", or stuff that reads like someone's name. Then it's just learning the regions and their associated styles–Barbaresco = Nebbiolo, same with Reoro and Valtellina, Toscana = usually Sangio, etc.
Rose season is here boys. I plan on quaffing the fuck out of some at the beach next week.
got an email from realm with the most expensive rose i've ever seen
immediately bought 6 bottles
In my experience it ain’t worth it!
The best rose I’ve ever had was in Provence a few summers ago and it was like 35 euros at a 2 star Michelin restaurant. Scenery and food (and maybe the edible) probably contributed to me loving it so much of course.
was $60 a bottle so not insane
fuck I love rose- I will not hide my love of it either
Ohh you dudes are all drinking ipas and bourbon- this pink stuff right here is better trust me
It was actually 40 euros
My wife got a 39 euro glass of champagne, queen.
the people who winebid use to ship have attempted twice to delivery to my office.
once on wednesday at 6:45 and once yesterday at 8:20
just tried calling shipping company. on hold for ten minutes then they just hung up on me
Rough week for the wallet. Morrell grabbed some extras of PYCM's first drop of 19s, Ceritas allocation hit yesterday morning, and on Sunday I grabbed a bunch of old Cali Syrah, young Corton-Charlemagne, and sticky riesling. One of those fucking weeks.
Maybe it's different where you are but for me, they use FedEx?
something called lso
Fuck that noise
trying a delivery to a business at 8:20 is ridiculous
Domaine Tempier? If so, you won’t regret it. It’s fantastic.
No from realm
Well, it’s a bit of a splurge for Rose but I highly recommend this for anybody.
The Rouge is really good too. Mourvèdre
The standard. Stuff is fan fucking tastic
interesting backsplash, motherfucker
I'll never forget how bad my bank account got its shit rocked my first trip to France.
Those damn champagne carts are brutal.
You're like 150 Euros deep before any food has hit the table.
Thanks? It isn’t a kitchen so it’s more rustic and adventurous.
I was on a posting roll and that sounds more niggling and less je nais sais quoi than intended. Looks great.
is that the moonracer you opened? how is it ?
my winebid box just arrived! only have buyers remorse on 1 of the 12 bottles i bought
3 more bottles of kata via winebid on sunday.
not sure how many of you have had cab from the beckstoffer bourn vineyard, but if you're into that sort of thing i can't recommend it highly enough.
i lost 2 bottles of opus one to a guy in a golf bet. we had a party and poured that and then after i poured two bottles of the b cellars beckstoffer bourn. everyone agreed it was better than the opus and got 5-6 requests for me to get bottles for people
Did NOT mean to open this bottle. Thought I was grabbing the 17 Sonoma Coast. Saw 2019 on the cork and panicked.
Guess it’s fine for a rainy Tuesday night.
Just ordered wine racking for the new house and a case of big table farms Pinot for the wife since it’s not showing up in Ohio yet
Got promoted and got this nice gift from my boss
Wife and I are looking to book a trip this weekend for July. Opting to do a wine region trip to the west coast as she hasn’t been to that part of the country really.
And can’t do a drive there unlike New York.
If we are deciding between Napa/Sonoma/Walla Walla what would the recommendation be?
We like everything from reds to whites and really liked that aspect of the Okanagan Valley given the variety.
If you go to Napa I have some recs.
haven’t been to other two but I’m sure all 3 will be legit.
If you want diversity of styles, Napa isn't your best bet. Sonoma is the size of Rhode Island, so best bet is to limit/pick one or two specifics parts. I think Russian River/Dry Creek is a great weekend, same with Carneros/Sonoma Valley. I wrote a tour guide on the latter: https://www.winestyr.com/blog/places/winestyr-weekends-sonoma-valley-and-carneros
