2008 Domaine La Bastide Syrah Vin de Pays d'Hauterive

Date: Mon, Feb 21, 2011 Wine Tasting

It's the house of sick these days, so not much wine drinking here. This is one I had the other night, before I succumbed to this latest illness. I guess this means I can check off being sick this month......

2008 Uwe Schiefer Blaufrankisch "Konigsburg"

Date: Sun, Feb 13, 2011 Wine Tasting

I got this since I had the Eisenberg at Weygandt's a few days ago and thought it was very good, and the Konigsburg sounded even better to me based on the description (more crazy animal/leather/meat). Sadly, it was not so...

2005 Ridge Buchignani Ranch Carignane

Date: Wed, Feb 2, 2011 Wine Tasting

Dug this out to have with some curry. Usually I am not a big fan of Carignane, although I am coming around... for some reason a lot of Carignanes have a back-of-the-tongue bitterness I don't like. This one didn't have...

Weygandt tasting 1/29/2011: Domaine Alary

Date: Sun, Jan 30, 2011 Wine Tasting

Another Saturday, another tasting. This time I flew solo and had time to people-watch, for better or for worse. Today we had the guy who wanted to brag about his huuuuuge cellar (I can't stand these guys. They are often...

The night of wine successes

Date: Wed, Sep 22, 2010 Wine Tasting

It was my birthday Monday, and since I am officially Old now, my lovely husband, along with our lovely friend (who didn't hold us giving him lousy wine the other night against us) conspired to have a party, and they...

The night of wine disasters/2005 Scholium Project "Satrapies of the East"

Date: Fri, Sep 17, 2010 Wine Tasting

So, I guess I am back, or trying to be. Here's the quick recap of why I have not been around: 1. I got pregnant, which puts a big old kibosh on the wine drinking, at least for the most...

Date: Sun, Nov 2, 2008 Wine Tasting

So in the last two-and-then-some years I've been gone, I haven't totally been slacking in the ways of wine although I admit I have recently been backsliding into the whole "delicious yum don't think about it" stuff a little too...

Sokol Blosser "Meditrina" II

Date: Fri, Mar 24, 2006 Wine Tasting

Notes: This was actually sent to me (hooray for free wine) and it was exciting because I like its white-grape sister, Evolution 9, which is fun to drink. So this is an interesting wine to check out, especially since I...

2003 Ridge Lytton Estate Late Harvest Zinfandel

Date: Sat, Mar 18, 2006 Wine Tasting

Notes: This is something odd for me, a bottle of Ridge and I have no idea from where it came. Either this was a semidrunken purchase at the winery at some point or one of my ATP shipments (which, upon...

2003 Delas Côtes du Ventoux

Date: Thu, Mar 9, 2006 Wine Tasting

Notes: This is my desperate attempt to do something for Wine Blogging Wednesday 19, despite the fact that I had a crazy busy weekend involving not only work, but an emergency room and a dislocated elbow (not mine, thankfully), and...

NV Billecart-Salmon Rosé

Date: Tue, Mar 7, 2006 Wine Tasting

Notes: We picked up this bottle a while ago since everyone made such a fuss about the stuff and, well, why not see what all the fuss is about? It sat around until we closed on the house (finally... after...

Spanish wine

Date: Mon, Feb 27, 2006 Wine Tasting

This tasting happened February 18, 2005 at K&L. I was eager to go since I told someone I would find him a good, light (read: traditional) Tempranillo and every time I picked up a bottle, it ended up being a...
