  • I'll try to keep this one short.  A few months back, I had dinner with OutThere and JonDerry (not their real names) up in Napa.  OT and I traded bottles and I was so enthralled with the bottle of Syrah he provided that I jumped when he said we could go in on a mixed case and get it at $20 a bottle.  Folks, if you can get your hands on Halcon Alt...

  • Flying Fox Viognier Monticello 2008

    Snoothrank:

    An 'average' Viognier for the buck, particularly when paired against some of the more concentrated and richer entries from the Shenandoah Valley (see: Barren Ridge, 2008 Viognier. Woof.)- but a promising start none the less.The fruit comes from an area called Stuarts Draft, located within the (very quickly) up & coming Shenandoah Valley AVA in ... Read More
