Another Wilson for the list...this time the 2009 Ellie's Old Vine Zin.
My, what a tasty wine! Great flavors of cherry, mocha, a little spice; fruit forward, if you will, without being too jammy ( sorry D') This was also much lighter in body than most Wilsons...reminded me more of a typical Merlot mouthfeel than a Zin, but again, not a detractor, and actually with our recent heat wave it was nice to have a all the good flavors I associate with a Zinfandel in a lighter wine.
Cheers..
By the way, am I the only one out there drinking Sonoma wines lately???

Recently had the pleasure of consuming the 2008 Wilson Sawyer's Reserve Zin and
just can't say enough good things.
Great aromas from the glass with nice balance and easy tannins. It has a little smokiness to it that enhanced the pairing with grilled tenderloin.

LOL!!! How much time do you have, my friend?
If you've been reading here then you probably have seen my research and my raves about Rockpile wines...more than most can stand by now, I fear!
To date, my favorite Rockpiles come from Mauritson, St. Francis, Paradise Ridge and Seghesio...doesn't mean there aren't plenty of other really good ones out there, but those are my favorites currently.
I don't have my wine stuff handy so I'm not sure when the Lobster event is going to be- when are you planning your visit and maybe I can help with event ideas- I get a few newsletters that tell what's coming up.

Thanks!
Looking for some fun events to add on to our trip to Sonoma. It'll be our second trip and still so much to do and see!! I've read a lot about Rockpile wines - know you have tried many from posts, any recommendations?

I haven't had the pleasure of attending that specific event, but we absolutely LOVE the folks at Harvest Moon. Based on our experiences there, I absolutely would say to give it a try.
And please give Miss Charlotte Brown a pat on the head from me, if she's about.

What is going on???? Have y'all gone "dry" on me??? Surely we aren't the only ones drinking wine...I mean I know its hot and all, but REALLY, nobody else???

Bella 2009 Big River RAnch Syrah...lovely wine, not too heavy but great flavor. Perhaps a little short on the finish, but it was really good with the grilled pork chops....

Well I sure hope that somebody is going to join in here soon!
Dutcher Crossing Petite Syrah..inky color, dark berries on the nose with a hint of vanilla( maybe), nice spiciness that gives a little bite and prevents that cloying quality you can get with a PS.
We had it with grilled burgers and it was a good match.

If you haven't heard of argot wines, fix that. Just had the "Coture" this evening...Rose of Grenache. WOW.

Our other thread was getting so long I thought it might be helpful to re-start a line on what everyone is enjoying lately.

We have been basking in the sublime evening weather lately and taking our whites out on the deck to enjoy.
Parker's Estate, 2009 Tolleson's High Corniche Sauv. Blanc is a very nice crisp wine. Plenty of fruit but not cloying,this is a medium bodied white with a nice finish.It is great alone or with food.

Glen Lyon 2009 Suzy's Toast is 100% Roussane and a wonderful back porch sipper. Its a very very light wine that just delights the palate with a touch of fruit and the nose with faint aromatics of stone fruits. Its a wine that you taste and say "Wow that is unexpected", and it has a short finish so you find yourself continuing to want more. Next thing you know, the glass is empty and you are saying, "Rats! It's gone"! Of course, the easy solution to that is just open another bottle We have enjoyed this with chicken and with shrimp, but I really like it best on its own.
