Drinkable, but only just. Past its prime.

Nice nose, aged, with not much life left. Not enjoyable.

A really floral and pretty nose. Good mouthfeel, oily palate, honey, good finish and yet I don't love it. Go figure.

Strong nose, slight petrol, sherried and tawny. Not enjoyable.

Good tannins, very long finish. Dark fruits, blueberries, oak and vanilla. Big for sure, but not as big as a few years ago. Even though my palate has changed a little since I first tried it, I still found it really enjoyable.

My notes begin to lessen at this point. Concord grapes and no recollection of the complexity of the tasting notes here.

Thick, syrup, root beer, a huge wine with a long finish. Not great. It was decanted about 30 minutes.

Dark with some difference in color at the rim. Some slight alcohol right out of the bottle, which blew off quickly. Chalky, with a long finish and some floral notes. Nice.

February 2010 Tasting - Zinfandel (NYC Tasting Group - John's Home): This was my favorite wine of the evening. The palate showed great tannins and was bright sweet and juicy. At $50, more than I want to spend for zin.

February 2010 Tasting - Zinfandel (NYC Tasting Group - John's Home): This was my 2nd and the group's first choice of the night. And, thrillingly, the least expensive of the night! $16.99 Sweet spice, complex. Peppery. Very nice.

February 2010 Tasting - Zinfandel (NYC Tasting Group - John's Home): This was my 7th choice out of 8 across the evening, so not a ringing endorsement. I found a little bit of green, with a hollow mid-palate and medium finish.

February 2010 Tasting - Zinfandel (NYC Tasting Group - John's Home): Hot, peppery nose that calmed down with time. This was a bit simple and easy to drink. Blueberries. I think too much for zin. About $45 at the time.

February 2010 Tasting - Zinfandel (NYC Tasting Group - John's Home): Some dirt on the nose and spice as well that blew off and eventually grew on me.

I missed the conversation about this wine possibly having been off as Bigwineguy420 says below, but would be pleased if that were the case. I'd read great things about this wine and wanted to enjoy it but found little to be excited about. Citrus with a lifeless palate.

I continue to be unimpressed with this wine. It was lifeless. Dry with some acid and little to no fruit or citrus to punch it up a bit. Boring.

I bought a half bottle of this from M&S for cooking and found it a pleasure to drink as well. Crisp, minerals, lemons with a long finish. Very enjoyable.

28-50 Wine Workshop and Kitchen (London): WOOD!! On the nose, on the palate, simply throughout was this overly butter-infused wine. Not much else could reveal itself because of the heavy-handed wood treatment.

28-50 Wine Workshop and Kitchen (London): Excellent wine. Fruity nose like Kerner with some floral notes. Bigger palate, fresh, crisp, acidic like a SB. A tiny bit of heat on the finish, which I wouldn't have noticed if I weren't taking a note. Very pleasurable.

Eyre Brothers (London): A perfect summer wine with minerals, melon lemon and acidity. Pleasant wine with enough going on to warrant comtemplation, if you're so inclined. I great partner to a warm seafood salad and monkfish entree.

The Pillars of the Earth (Home, Jersey City, NJ): I never know what I'm going to get when opening bottles from the 70's lately and this was truly pleasant surprise. Great representation of mature California cabernet. Balanced and still fresh, showing dark fruit and some spice. Really nice.

The Pillars of the Earth (Home, Jersey City, NJ): Fairly priced at $18.99 and very enjoyable. Certain worth repeating. A blend of 85% Chenin Blanc from Savennieres and 15% Cabernet Franc and tiny bit of sweetness on the palate along with lemon and fruit notes. It seems Chambers only has the Brut Sauvage in stock now. I'd try that based on the strength of this sparkler.

The Pillars of the Earth (Home, Jersey City, NJ): Fantastic. A steal at approx. $13.99. While being easy to drink due to a tiny bit of sweetness, there is complexity on the nose and the palate. Lightly tropical fruit flavors with some earthiness to keep it in balance. Big palate, but not overwhelming. Matched perfectly with a crab h' ordeuvres.

Red Rhone Tasting at Nicholas (Canary Wharf, London): Pepper, earth, dirt and tar. On the palate, red fruit, more tar and a green streak. Representative of St. Joseph. No.

TWERPS World Cup Blind Tasting (La Cave a Fromage, London): The group's wine of the night. Licorice, big palate, nice finish, fruit slowly dripping to the background with some spice coming through. I thought this was 5+ years older than it was.

TWERPS World Cup Blind Tasting (La Cave a Fromage, London): Really oxidized apple nose with some sort of artificial quality. Sweet at first but puckery/sour on the back and finish. Bad sherry flavors. No.

TWERPS World Cup Blind Tasting (La Cave a Fromage, London): Petrol on the nose, sharp fruit too. On the palate too sweet for Spatlese in my opinino, honey, citrus, melon and not much acid. Ok, but not a repeat.

El Pirata Detapas (London): Light honeysuckle on the nose but not giving up much else. Good acidity, medium finish, unripe stone fruit, maybe citrus, too, and some light oak. This wasn't interesting and overpriced at £7.75 per glass.

This was not enjoyable. Loads of minerals, little fruit. I would never have guessed it was Riesling. It was watery as Keith says below.
