    I have one of yours in my basement. Haven’t popped it open yet. Soon...

    This weekend was a homemade wine weekend - a French Merlot, Craig’s Zin, a Luna Chard and an Aussie Chard, too.

    This wine does not impress me much, not because it is very dry but I cannot find its flavors.

    The wine lottery came up with one of my best kit wines ever as the one to drink tonight. It is a CC Showcase Walla Walla Cab/Merlot. This is now 5.5 years old; I only have 2 left after this. It is very pleasurable.

    Wow, we cannot let this thread go unanswered for a week!

    I have open a CC Showcase Amarone. This one is almost exactly 5 years old. Damn, it is pretty nice!

    Delayed, but I'll join you with the Amarone, Paul. Just popped the cork on a Winery Series. Not quite as old as yours - pitched the yeast on 1/10/2016. But drinking pretty well.

    We're having Champagne, (okay, okay, sparkling wine) with dinner tonight. In a nod to Mike, I laid in a bunch of Gruet!

    I mostly got Blanc de Noirs, so that I can tell my silly ABC ("anything but Chardonnay") guests that their palates can remain unsullied by any Chard grapes tonight. :D

    Great choice IMHO!

    If you ever spy their "Sauvage" sparkling wine out in the wild it is out of bounds good as well. Costco has it (at least in these parts for $12.99)

    Nice! I have not seen that, but will keep my eye on it.

    I got the Brut and the Blanc de Noirs on sale for $10.99. :db:mny:db

    We popped a bottle of the Blanc de Noir for New Years. It was very nice. I think it has just a hint of RS compared to the Brut which seems to make a lot of pallets happy. Great appetizer wine for sure.
