    Re: What Wine Are You Drinking? Spring/Summer 2013

    Just tried my homemade 2010 Pinot Noir Columbia Gorge ... needed about an hour of air time, then classic red berry, earth/mushroom aromas, red cherry palate, and a bit of sour cherry/vanilla on the finish. This vintage was slow ripening with a late harvest; I might have pushed the barrel aging a bit long for the vintage. Needs another 6-12 months before opening the next one.

    What Wine Are You Drinking? Spring/Summer 2013

    Finally found a bottle of the E. Guigal Gigondas I was drinking in France, here in Delaware... I love this bottle, just wish it wasn't so hard to find here

    A glass of Orin Swift 2010 Abstract with dinner. A very tasty red Rhone blend.

    Always good. Orin Swift winemaker Dave Phinney was at one of our vendors wine shows. Nice guy.

    His locations (E1 spanish, F1 french, I1 Italian) wines are very good. Under $20 and drink like mature $40 wines.

    2008 Sextant Holystone Zinfandel last night. A really great, jammy but also nicely full-bodied Zin. Also had some 2007 Justin Justification from Paso Robles, California. A right bank Bordeaux-style blend of Cab Franc and Merlot.

    Had some Michter's 10y SB tonight. I have a hard time believing this is a 10y bourbon, looks and taste more like a 15y bourbon. I like it.

    Re: What Wine Are You Drinking? Spring/Summer 2013

    Had a 2004 Dönnhoff Schloßböckelheimer Felsenberg Riesling Spätlese tonight with dinner. I had the most trouble I've ever had with a cork, it crumbled immediately, couldn't get it out, did not have my Ah-so handy, so I bored a hole, poured and filtered the wine without ever getting the cork out. I bought this at the store today, so I am guessing poor storage, although I was a bit surprised since the store I purchased it from is pretty reputable, although not one of my normal wine haunts. The wine was pretty disappointing to me, although I lack experience with more mature Dönnhoffs - the finish was extremely short and the nose was more rubber band and less expressive than a more recent vintage of Niederhäuser Hermannshöhle I had that was absolutely excellent. Other people I drank with enjoyed it more than me, however. Also miffed that I probably overpaid a bit when looking at winesearcher - need that smartphone to prevent these situations...
