  • OK Thanks for all your suggestions. I was able to find most of your suggestions, though a couple I had to get different vintages. I added to that a few that I selected based on various reviews. I have a decent selection of Pinot Noir on order now, at a range of price points, most of which should be a good fit to my style preference. I'm just get... Read More

  • 2014 Donkey & Goat Pinot Noir Helluva Vineyard (Anderson Valley)Great Pinot, if you don't mind good acidity along with the fresh fruit and some stem inclusion. Think it's the best CA Pinot under $40, and maybe higher. Read More

  • I typically shy away from Pinot Noir, preferring more full bodied, dark & dense varieties.But I have had a couple Pinot's that knocked my socks off. In each case, these were made New World style with very concentrated extraction resulting in a fruity palette and dense mouth feel. But I don't recall what wines/vintages were like this.Would love t... Read More

  • Richard - That is correct, I see now that you were stating $42 per bottle for the overall cost.  I agree, after looking at the website, that figure seems high but still it's wrong that their trust was violated and their loss was substantial.You statement as to their accounting for their losses before the final solution occurred was lax at best i...

  • Okay, something weird was going on with our Internet connection here.  Glad you got the link.I checked my math.  The total loss at the time was alleged to be $70,490.  The number of bottles was 1,644.  That's $42 a bottle.  You were only looking at what was recovered from the car, not what the overall allegation was, I think.    Read More

  • Rckr, not sure what you linked to, as the original article no longer appears on SFGate. I believe that the whole thing will wind up more like a petty theft, mostly the product of the couple taking a few bottles home without entering them into the pull list.  Lots of small wineries are poorly run as businesses, and this one seems to be a candidat...

  • Ricjard - "Police recovered 33 bottles from her car, worth $1,320, and another seven bottles from under Gomber’s bed "The math has me confused 33 bottles @ $40 per = $1320 .  Let's say the other 7 cost $20 = $140 for a total of $1460.  Where does the $42 figure come from or am I missing part of the post?The guy is a schlep for what he did regard...

  • So to get back to the original subject of the post, I've been in court recently when this case came back on calendar.  Turns out that the winery also went after their tasting room manager/part time bookkeeper, who is represented by an attorney of my acquaintance.  The winery owners decided, based on their "inventory," that she was somehow in on ...
