Took an opportunity to taste several 2006 wines from Taupenot-Merme at Scott Paul and ambled up the street to taste at Tyrus Evan too.
This was a wonderful opportunity to taste three Premiers from one producer in the same vintage. All wines were tasted from Riedel Burgundy glasses.
We walked up the street to the Tyrus Evan tasting room (Ken Wright's warm-climate wine label). They were serving some remaining 2008 Ken Wright pinots. These were served in Riedel red wine glasses. With the exception of the Carter Vineyard these were very disappointing, perhaps that why they're still available to taste. The poorer wines were not bad by any stretch of the imagination but they were not up the to standards of this producer and certainly, in my opinion, not worth the $55 asking price.
