    WE LE Vermentino....turning the corner for good, it is getting smoother, aroma is nice, not much flavor though but very good and dry for those who like all bone dry whites.

    It's good.

    The dregs of the MV Philosophie Chardonnay I bottle earlier today. Not bad at all, for a 5 mo. wine.

    Bourbon. Went to a tasting with my son in law. We had a great time. 6 side by side different bourbon. Best of the bunch was a Basel Hayden Dark rye with "a significant amount" of port wine added and agreed for 6 years extra in a port barrel.

    Last night I bottled the WE LE Marshmallow dessert wine and had a sip of the left over, nice flavor and good for Holidays.

    BTW - these bella? tiny tall bottles cannot be corked using my Portuguese corker..!!! I had to use the small 'manual' corker and what a pain..!!

    From yesterday. This Chardonnay I made from grapes a couple years ago, it’s very good and has a nice Chardonnay aroma, it has a bit of sediment.

    That’s a favorite at our house too since I got a Christmas present last year.

    Jim, I must admit I have never heard of a Rosso Verona IGT. Can you describe it at all?

    Reminded me of a cross between a Super Tuscan and an Aglianico.

    Dry, earthy (leather, mushrooms), with subtle fruit in the background; and strong tannins and a hint of anise.

    I just recently bottled a Master Vintner Philosophie Chardonnay. It was only 5 mos. old, but I decided to commit vinfanticide since it was a lowly kit white (and I was curious how it turned out). It was not at all bad. I lightly oaked it, and it seemed to take it well.

    Hey you arent doing anything bad Sour, just making it your style. IF its good its good does it matter how its made even if others would frown upon it?

    We had a 2015 Cab tonight from Calif grapes that we made. Very disappointing considering all the work involved. So I needed a “little” more so I pulled a 2010 Coffee Wine, Jack Keller recipe, Awesoe!! Wow!! Amazing!! Will have to make it again. What a Great 2nd bottle!! Roy

    Just cracked a 2016 Pinot Noir from @jgmann67 . A dark, bold Pinot to the eyes; but lighter and fruitier than it would appear. Really smooth and delicious.

    I'm going to say the heck with @jgmann67 and @ceeaton telling me to let their wines wait another year. One of them will be opened next whether they like it or not.

    All the other bottles I got from Jim had 2017 dates on them. I'll let those sit.
