    What wine are you drinking? Summer 2009

    It's about time somebody did it!

    As for me...

    Baron Herzog Old Vine Zin (Lodi) 2005.

    Was there a bad 2005 vintage anywhere on the planet? If there was, I haven't had it!

    Great wine, and with chocolate, it's amazing.

    I have bought several bottles this summer, but I haven't opened any, yet.

    Martin Codax Albarino 2006, I got about half dozen of these and we like them on weekends.
    Also the Dry Traminette by Sandhill Crane, both are great summer wines.

    Very nice choices.

    To continue the summer wine theme, I'm having a nice glass of the Chateau Grand Traverse 2007 pinot noir vin gris, a nice, flavorful, but light rose. Really hits the spot when it's 90 degrees outside.

    Re: What wine are you drinking? Summer 2009

    My post-work, summer-afternoon-on-the-screened-in-back-porch sip of wine is from another excellent bottle from the Wright Meyers winery of Shepherdsville KY. The last one was a very tasty vignolles. This one is a Riesling, very light, perfect summer wine. I'm not a big fan of whites but sometimes it's just too hot for red.

    Not only is it good wine, but there's a good story about our visit to the tasting room.

    Rene' Barbier's Mediterrannean White. It's always tasty, it's always inexpensive. I've been trying to find another old staple, the latest Bonny Doon Vin Gris de Cigare. If I can't find some soon I'll glom onto another rose' and Randall will have to wait til next year to get my money.
    Here's to us, who's like us?

    That's one of my favorites too. I just picked up a bottle at TJ's a few weeks ago but I haven't opened it yet. I don't think I've had a bad bottle from Bonny Doon.

    I don't remember the Wright-Meyer story, other than watching the Boilers at the tasting bar

    Laid in some New Age: one of our favorite summer whites.

    The winery is apparently in a subdivision, we drove past many houses to get to it, and found it only thanks to a Magellan. When we got there it was about 5 min to closing time, they graciously welcomed us into the tasting room and let us taste everything, including stuff that wasn't for sale.

    Of course I bought several bottles, but what I think tastes great in the tasting room often doesn't taste so great back at home. Tastebud overload, I think. But this stuff, so far, has been great.
