@klezman@rjquillin@ScottW58 it is likely I wish I had bought more later, but theres a hurricane of wine I have to decide on. No room for Sandler wines sadly… I’m up for more suggestions from all, as I am a Newb.
@klezman@rjquillin@ScottW58 old world, dry, reds, Italian and French inspired. I folllow the palate of you 3 for sure! Hoping for some whites or lighter style that won’t disappoint. I caught the tail end of BDX last year, just trying not to miss out. #FOMO
If you’re looking for whites I would buy the number 1 option from Goodfellow, can’t recommend that highly enough. Also Terrien Wines my friends say are killer whites (I have not tried them). Briceland is another great one. Also Maison Harbour’s whites are fantastic! A little more expensive because he is making his wines in France.
@rjquillin@ScottW58@TechnoViking Should we be putting in for a case of the Goodfellow Berserker Cuvee to split? At $33/bottle it’s a lot more spendy than the PG version, but it sounds like top notch juice.
@kaolis@rjquillin@ScottW58@TechnoViking They all come vac-packed. You can easily keep them in the fridge a week. Maybe even 2. But freezing dry-aged meat doesn’t kill it as much as fresher meat, so there’s no need to keep it 2 weeks without freezing.
@ScottW58@Winedavid49 I think WD means wineries…
For gourmet, I’d ask the coffee guy. It sounds interesting, and he has the benefit of packing in 8 oz bags so I don’t need to freeze it all.
If Nola would do it, I know you’d have a ton of people in for her oil, vinegar, tuna, etc.
For wine suggestions, just look above
Andrew Morris from Briceland would be amazing
and I bet Adam Frisch would love to get to know this community, what with his out of the ordinary wines.
Whoops my mistake…Well I bought
Sokolin/ Eyrie offer
Nola’s oil (my yearly supply )
Nola’s sardines/no tuna this year.
Grassl glasses (I need more glasses like I need a whole in my head)
I think that’s it?
Picked up some Flannery Hangars, repour and some Grassl. Went light on wine this year with Scherrer and Kelley Fox. @scottw58 Did I go wrong with getting the Momtazi? Wondering if I should try and switch to the Hyland.
Nope two different vineyards and both great in their own ways! In fact I popped a Hyland tonight because I got 6 more today If I can somehow make it out your way sometime I would trade you for two of the Momtazi?
Great stuff both of them.
@klezman@ScottW58 That would be great, but I need to check on some family commitments. I’ll be in Temecula the weekend of March 7/8. At a minimum I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts on local wineries, especially following the gathering there next month. I’ve generally been disappointed in the past but may not be hitting the right places.
@rc70 Completely different from my choices aside from Flannery! I nearly bit on the Virage, but instead that went to a split case of Berserker Cuvee Pinot from Goodfellow.
Franny Beck (Scott’s been talking them up for so long!)
Sabelli-Frisch (how could I not with those varieties?)
Fogline - the Gewurtz pulled me in
Scherrer OMV Zin
And barring any can’t-miss deals, that’s all for a few months.
@klezman Nice selection, wanted Cabot Syrah but they are UPS shippers - didn’t want to deal with hassle of trying to get FedEx shipped. Last year several places said sure we can do fedex then turned around and did ups anyway, they wound up with the wine being returned to them .
Sabelli-Frisch was intriguing but does not ship to Idaho, so a no go there.
Overflowing with Pinot so totally bypassed this year.
Nope, I sent Cabot a PM asking him and he said UPS only. Last year he agreed to send my order FedEx but sent it UPS anyway. Had to drive 20 miles in horrendous traffic to the hub. He made it up to me by comping two bottles of PN, which was nice (was able to be home for that delivery). The aged Syrah is a steal.
@bolligra You are correct, Cabot is strictly UPS but I went ahead and ordered it after talking with John and he agreed to hold and ship when I contact him for a specific ship date so it will arrive when I am available. I am only at my ship address every couple of weeks and generally only there for 1 or 2 “UPS” working days. The change here to UPS has killed any purchases as the shipment just goes out whenever. That worked fine with FedEx as I have an auto hold at hub in place for shipments.
The Cabot deal just seemed to good to pass up, I love Syrah, especially quality aged ones.
Thanks for mentioning your experience as I was incorrectly given some info that he would do fedex at least now I have an acceptable work around.
