these are the wines to choose from. If there are more than 8 attending I'll probably send 2 of the top 3 or 6 if less than that. It's more important to get a full pour than just a sip IMHO. Please vote for your top 6 picks and the winners will be the most picked wines. WW
Eric Russell Sonoma
Z.D. Napa
Beringer Alluvium
Gallo Barilli Creek
Robert Sinskey Reserve
Corison Napa
Ch. Montelena Estate
Livingston Moffit
Ristow Quinto de Pedras
Raymond reserve
Joseph Phelps Napa
Silverado Napa
Mt. Veeder Napa
Dehlinger Estate.
All are 1997 Vintage.

These are all Cabernet Sauvignon or Meritage/Bordeaux blends?

My top three:
Eric Russell Sonoma (cuz I love their Zins so much)
Joseph Phelps Napa
Dehlinger Estate

for my top six I will add:
Mt. Veeder Napa
Chateau Montelena Estate
and either ZD Napa or Gallo Barilli Creek

There are a number here I haven't tried so this is surmise rather than expertise.

Oops, I'm confusing Eric Russell with Eric Ross (which WW did once too I think.) Its Eric Ross zins I like, so I will revise my list omitting Eric Russell and moving ZD into fifth place and Gallo Barilli Creek into sixth.

Agree with WOW except I would swap the Eric Russell with the Mt. Veeder.

- Kcwhippet - 03-21-2007 05:21 PM

OK, I'm thinking my top six are:

Ch. Montelena
Phelps Napa
Dehlinger (because I haven't had it yet)
Mt. Veeder

- winoweenie - 03-21-2007 08:37 PM

I'm sorry WOW but, yes, they're all Cabs or blends. Put them in your order of preference so I can have a numerical basis for comparison. Tankee. WW

- wondersofwine - 03-22-2007 12:28 PM

I think I'll leave the order as I revised it above starting with Joseph Phelps as #1 and ending with Gallo Barilli Creek as #6, omitting the Eric Russell.

just to make things easy on ya, you're welcome to send those that don't make the list up here to sunny Wisconsin! [img][/img]

Whata' Guy! WW [img][/img]

I'm thinking that if most people bring a few bottles, along with Verne's stuff, that we may have way too much wine. We're going to have to do some serious tasting, folks!! I'm thinking of bringing a few more bottles of the 87 Guigal Hermitage (hope they still have some life left), a few Pinots and a vertical of a CS, maybe Bressler, Jones Family or Karl Lawrence.

BTW, is everyone, but Verne, still in?

I am trying to make my choices for what I will pull for the trip. I know I have a bottle of Abreu Madrona Ranch ready. May be some interesting Aussies too.

- Glass_A_Day - 03-25-2007 12:34 PM

My list looks like:

2000 Abreu Madrona Ranch Cab
2002 Kamen Estate Cab
2000 Concha y Toro Don Melchor Cab
and maybe a couple of zins like
2004 Turley Pesenti
2004 Martinelli Giuseppe and Luisa

- wondersofwine - 03-26-2007 11:17 AM

I will probably bring a Domaine Serene Pinot Noir and maybe a Kosta Browne P.N., possibly a dessert German Riesling and a Spanish red or a Zinfandel.

- winoweenie - 04-05-2007 10:14 AM

Was gonna put the box together and send this week but our weather here is hitting the low 90s. Will see what next week brings. WW

- TheEngineer - 04-06-2007 01:07 AM

I'm still planning on coming. Saw KC the other night and he asked me so this is what's prompting this. But with my travels, I won't know till I get there....

Planning to bring (you know what they say about plans...) Germans and P.N.'s
2001-2004 Wolfer Goldgrube Rieslings Various
2002 Walter Hansel P.N. regular and South Slope
2000 Domaine G. Roumier Morey Saint Denis Clos de la Bussiere 1er Cru
and a few other nick nacks.....

- wondersofwine - 04-06-2007 10:49 AM

With those Rieslings and the Burgundy I certainly hope you make it. Look forward to meeting you in person.

- winoweenie - 04-14-2007 12:26 PM

Eng Baby you haven't cast your vote on the wines I'm to send. As far as I can see you're the last one. Get them dudes done so's I can get the final count. AND Gene, you have a vote too if you want. WW

- Bucko - 04-15-2007 10:05 AM

Verne, I don't think they want your wines. They want to take pictures of those flamingo legs of yours -- Ripley's Believe It Or Not is waiting. [img][/img]

- Glass_A_Day - 04-15-2007 06:53 PM

You can bad my votes Verne.

- winoweenie - 04-15-2007 08:23 PM
