bottles. At lunch with CB yesterday the MIC of my local shop put a glass in front of me and said "Try this, and give me a price." Took a sip, loved the pure Pinot flavors with just the rite amount of funkiness and said 35-40 bucks. Did guess the origin as the Central Coast so he brought out the bottle so here's the skinny, 2002 Hunterdon Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands AND even here the price was 13.98 by the box. 13.5% alc. Ordered 3 on the spot. Not quite as complex as the Migration but at 1/2 the number one absotive-i-ly killer bargain. WW

Nice! I am going shopping tomorrow. I hope the local dealer has this in stock. Few things make me happier than a solid pinot for under $15.

I'll keep my eyes peeled for this one.

On the Migration note, I found the '03 model sitting on the shelf of the new neighborhood Kroger supermarket for $27. Will kick the tires this weekend and post accordingly.

3 stores and no luck so far. Let's pray I get luckier tomorrow.

Some wines just don't have wide distribution and this may be one of them. You might be able to order from the winery but would then have shipping charges.

- jmcginley1 - 05-24-2005 09:50 AM

I haven't been able to find the winery's webpage. (I just did a quick google to no avail, I haven't looked very hard yet.)

Michael Cox, of the Schug Carneros Estate Winery, created this light- to medium-
bodied wine, which showcases stunning cherry fruit and old-world character. Go to the below link to view the label. Also, do you think it might be a part of Hunterdon brewing?

not only does my regular shop not have this one, but i can't find any sign of it using wine access or wine searcher. i'm gonna have to write this off as one of those "ones that got away." thanks anyway WW. and thanks for the info drew.

Some more info...

Hi from the folks who make Hunterdon (and Mayro-Murdick). Someone forwarded this link to me, so I thought that I'd say hi. And, let you know how fun it is to see people writing about your wine.

We have just released the 2002 Hunterdon into 10 US markets. So, it's just starting to get out there. If you're interested in learning more, you can drop me an email: I don't want to barrage any of you with some online sales pitch, but I can share any information that you want -- including a site where you can purchase direct if you wish.

Hi Tina and welcome to the board. You have a serious advocate here in Phoenix in Sportsmans Fine Wines. I've turned on alla' me drinking buddies to your fine bottle. WW

- Tina Cox - 05-25-2005 06:39 PM

Happy to hear it. I've heard about your place through my days at Robert Mondavi. Our local rep, Paul, is a great friend, and is a great ambassador for the wine.

- jmcginley1 - 05-25-2005 11:41 PM

Tina, is NJ one of the 10 US markets you've released this wine into? So far, WW has led me into wines I've liked, and I am anxious to give this one a try.

- Tina Cox - 05-26-2005 09:11 AM

Unfortunately, no. NJ was a priority for me, as Hunterdon was named after where my husband Mike's family settled in the US. But, our agent hasn't assigned a distributor in NJ yet, so we'll likely have to wait until August when the next release of Hunterdon comes out. If you email me your email (, I can put you on a list to let you know when we're in your state.
This interest in Hunterdon has made my day!

Opened another bottle from a different case last nite to check the consistancy. Same-ole'-same-ole'. GOOD STUFF. WW

- californiagirl - 06-21-2005 08:38 PM

WW- found a bottle of the Hunterdon- very nice wine! A definite QPR. Thinking about getting a few more [img][/img]

- Capocheny - 06-21-2005 11:34 PM

Hi Tina,

Any distribution in Canada?


- Tina Cox - 07-04-2005 09:00 PM

Sorry for the delay in responding. Just getting back from a week of traveling.

No distribution in Canada right now. I've heard that my US agent is looking into Canadian expansion, but I wouldn't expect it until late next year.

Santa Lucia Highlands. I was able to find a bottle of the '04 Hunterdon Pinot Noir and opened it the other day. Nice cherry flavors with earth and funk from the start but a little left over, sampled a couple of hours later from the bottle, it was really singing. The fruit exploded with dark, sweet cherry, underbrush and a touch of brett and mushroom. A very nice pinot for $12. I'm gonna purchase some more today. 13.5% Alc/vol.


- winoweenie - 07-03-2006 06:19 AM

Had a bottle of the 04 yesterday with some turkey/basil meatloaf and fresh asparagus and it did, as Drewski pointed out, "sang". Don't know what happened to the 03 but this new crop is a worthy successor to the 02. Ordered 2 boxes immediately. Life be GOOD! Ww
