    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.

    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?

    This is probably as good as any wine I’ve ever had from Napa. Super concentrated.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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. :facepalm:
    Guess it’s fine for a rainy Tuesday night.

    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.
