This is aging beautifully, it's a pity so many bottles have been consumed in their youth. At the woot price an absolute steal I wish I'd have maxed out on.

$10 Let's Pour flyer for a new varietal and worth the low tariff in 2014 for a 2007 bottle. Nice table wine still showing good fruit and balance not overwhelmed by oak.

perhaps my bottles have held up better than others, but I found this an enjoyable, somewhat aged, syrah and won't be rushing to empty my remaining bottles.

2011 Kirkland Signature Chianti Classico Chianti Classico Riserva

Chianti Classico DOCG Sangiovese more

6/27/2015 - rjquillin wrote: NR

Pretty basic bottle that improved over PnP after a few days in the fridge to knock off the edges.
Agree with Scott W, would be a good cellar defender for friends that don't much care.

True to Scotts words, quite like a PN with additional body. Finessed, but quite lively. Really wish I'd grabbed additional as this still has life.

Made this wtso purchase based on some '08 and '12 Terre des Anges purchases from LB; rather liked the '08, this not so much.
Previous notes sum it up.

Garagiste purchase ~$14; he's done better for this tariff.
Tart and disjointed @ PnP, did improve after a few fridge days sans Ar.
Gifted a couple bottles and they received 'ok' comments. What to do?

2011 Wellington Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Sonoma County more

5/15/2015 - rjquillin Likes this wine: NR

Not seeing 'overwhelming' fruit @ PnP, but clearly still primary and lacking balance the first day. By day three/four in the fridge this settled down into a fine Wellington. Drink now, but not without a leisurely decant.

2008 Ramsay Pinot Noir North Coast

more

4/16/2015 - rjquillin wrote: NR

Need more woot finds like this one. Properly cellared, drinking nicely. A bit of funk @ PnP for interest. Lighter style, as others have noted, but still showing nice fruit, moderate acid with minimal tannins. Zero hint of any acetyl. A win for screw tops.

Unremarkable in every aspect, pretty much to be expected for a $10 PN. Not expecting much here, but I'll give it a year and see what happens.

Despite being open since last August, (Ar) this took quite a while to open up and blow off some off notes. Consumed and improved over multiple days.

Floral, on the sweeter side of dry, simple with some elements a bit off.
Only decent at $8, I've had better budget bottles. Dan Tudor's Radog comes to mind.

Saw this combined in a WW offer for ~$30 and picked up locally for $20 to see what it was like. A good effort in a challenging year and worth the tariff. A big CA style bottle that age and a decant should help out.
