7 Deadly Zins Old Vine Lodi Zinfandel 2013

Was not expecting this Zin to become a fave. I am not a huge Zin guy but I cannot deny an amazing wine when I taste one. This is highly flavorful, deep, robust, and satisfying. — 7 years ago

Château d'Antugnac

Terres Amoureuses Haute Vallée Chardonnay 2011

2011 is very round, expressive bouquet. Made of 85% chardonnay - a grape that's doing great in Limoux - and 15% mauzac. A nose with citrus, pear and Guadeloupe melon. I met winemaker David Serodes a few weeks ago, a nice modest guy, with clear views. He recommends this wine with Thai food, the best combination he tasted until now. I combined the wine with spaghetti vongole, halibut and goats cheese. Each combination was OK. — 8 years ago

Was a little skeptical when Costco was selling this and 92 pts was all over the packaging. VERY pleasantly surprised. Not too sweet and very flavorful. New go-to table wine for this guy. — 6 years ago

Chateau Montelena

The Montelena Estate Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1990

This is my 1000th wine on Delectable and I wanted to post something that meant something special to me. @Steve Anderson brought this to an incredible tasting we attended last night at a beautiful cellar in the home of @Scott Kahn who graciously hosted many of our local tasting group among wives, neighbors and other friends of his. It was an exemplary night that I had to cut much shorter than I preferred because I had to pick up my teenage daughter from a friend's house. It was a perfect storm of many important elements impacting my life both past and present. First and foremost I am a Father and even though my daughter called me much earlier than I wanted on an evening of wine involving first growths, Napa giants and Burg greats....I left because I was needed. My daughter just recently started living with me and we've been through a lot in the last year. The men I was with are almost all parents who totally get the importance of my daughter in my life....they are exceptional Dad's who have raised special kids. I respect them immensely and that is why I am honored that wine brought me together with a group that I would not likely have become friends with without it. Wine does that. It bridges gaps. It creates memories. It develops community. Delectable has done that for me as well. I have never been much of a social media guy but something about this app drew me in. Yes it was the wine...but it's the people that make this "place" truly special. I've made legit friends here and I'm better for it. I spent an amazing weekend in Chicago this summer with @Roman Sukley and @DAG...those 2 couldn't have been more generous, gracious or cool. I've also developed a synergy with @Ron R @TheSkip @Martin G Rivard @David A Lentine @Kimberly Anderson and many others I've never met but I feel like I know somehow. These people know who they are.....but back to the wine. Montelena has a special place in my heart. When I passed the bar in '93 I brought a '87 Montelena to dinner that night. Just me and my Mom. She grew up on a dirt road in a small rural town in North Carolina. Not wine country. By the time we shared the Montelena she had become a pretty ardent Chardonnay fan but did not seem to take to reds. Wine was fairly new to me but I was always trying to get her engaged with my love of red wine. Unsuccessfully. That night we shared a meal and memories at the La Valencia hotel in La Jolla and enjoyed that bottle. She was proud of me and said so. Without reservation. I was the first person on either side of my family to graduate college and now I was a lawyer. The moment touched her and it has stayed with me always. She said "you're my only child and I'm so proud of the man you've become and now you're a lawyer. I can't believe it. More than that I can't believe how much I loooooove this wine. I'm actually more impressed with that!" My Mom had a sense of humor too 😉 and right there a lifetime memory was created over a bottle that now had meaning beyond the wine. When she passed suddenly in '05 I had dinner with her husband. I brought a '90 Ausone and a '91 Montelena. We toasted my Mom. I have no recollection of the $500 Ausone but the Montelena is still one of my top 10 wines of all time. Each wine is its own experience and those you share it with enhance that experience immeasurably. Cherish each glass....and @Steve Anderson thank you for granting my request by bringing that bottle. You know now why I chose it. — 7 years ago

Me too @Scott Kahn let’s do it. Interestingly enough last Sunday would have been my Mom’s 80th birthday....I actually showed this post to my girlfriend and we toasted her. Next time I tip a glass I will toast @Alec White he was a remarkable man
