Added Dec 3 at 6:55pmNice, tart Paso vermentino. A hint of fresh cut lemon and some floral notes on the nose. On the palate, nice lemon/lime citrus with some wet stone and vibrant acidity. There's a touch of fresh apricot and bees wax on the finish.

Added Dec 1 at 6:00pmSomewhat simple riesling. There's a bit of green apple and subtle petrol on the nose. The palate is more (jolly rancher) green apple. There is a touch of sweetness on the mid-palate that is nicely balanced against low to medium acidity. Pretty good QPR for this mid-week quaff.

Added Nov 30 at 5:28pmThis is a fantastic sauv blanc from Healdsburg based Selby. Loads of fresh fruit- lemon, lime, ripe white grapefruit, green apple and crisp acidity. There is also a touch of roundness that keeps it all in check. Great QPR on this one.

Added Nov 30 at 8:35amHere are my notes for the '08: "Extremely nice Pinot from Fred Scherrer. Well balanced with nice acidity, dark cherry, rhubarb, some white pepper and a very nice long finish." The '09 is more bright red fruit, less spice and a touch more acidity but still the whole package is in sync with all parts in perfect balance.

Added Nov 29 at 6:04pmReally nice rose of pinot noir from Willamette. Light and lively with a nose of fresh strawberry. The flavor profile is a bit floral, with tart cherry, a splash of slightly under ripe strawberry and a bit of creamy lime on the finish. Tart mouth watering acidity plays well with the bright fruit.

Added Nov 29 at 4:57pmFantastic white Alsace blend of chardonnay and auxerrois. For an '05 this is drinking great right now! Beautiful golden color, nose of creamy lemon pith and honey. On the palate there's more of that creamy lemon cheesecake along with ripe golden delicious apple, dried apricot, creme brulee, and some fine acidity to balance out the fruit.

Added Nov 29 at 8:54amA whiff of barnyard (but not the good kind) and bit of that gaminess on the front end with muted ripe black plum and dried fig. The tannins were a touch harsh, not the best Rhone blend we've had.

Added Nov 29 at 8:47amA very nice priorat. Ripe black cherry and smooth fine grained tannins give this grenache based Spanish red nicely balanced flavor and a really nice mouthfeel. Nicely tamed, not your overpowering Priorat.

Added Nov 26 at 9:34pmFairly big Carol Shelton zin. Initial impression is like sticking your nose into a bag of switzer's black licorice. Loads of ripe blackberry, more licorice and dark black cherry on the palate. There's a fair amount of acidity that's a bit overpowered by the heat of the alcohol.

Added Nov 25 at 7:51pmNot bad, but not great Barbera. Bright, dark cherry and a touch of jolly rancher red cherry, decent acidity, fairly light body and a short to medium finish. Decent mid-week drinker for the price.
