First the 92 Anderson. This beautifully balanced sucker has held up like Hoover Dern. Had 2 bottles this week, one by me-very-own-self and another with BigRedWines who is supposed to post on this at the threat of cellar-door-lock. The St. Francis was also extremely young in appearance and taste. Deep ruby. Lovely cassis, cocoa, cherry, and spices. Al;l come over on the palate. Big entry, weighty center and a 4+ lapper finish. 92/95. 30 by the box. 13% alc. The Peachy is from the Santa Lucia Highland vineyardof Doug Beckett. A lovely meritage with Cabernet, Cab Franc, and Merlot in the blend. Developed beautifully in the glass over 1 hour or so. Solid floral nose(roses?) with vanilla, red fruit,and a touch of vanilla. All hit the palate with the addition of a note of terrior. Well-made bottle that had some very fine-grained tannins that hadn't left. This one I wish I'd made a larger buy but that can be said for derned near every last bottle I open. 90/89. 27. 14.3% alc. WW

This was my heartbreak wine last nite. My only regret was that I had to endure such visual agony while experiencing such marvelous olfactory and tasting pleasure. This wines on a plateau with no impression of degraing one whit in the near future. Think there's still 2 from the box. Outstanding juice. WW ( the wine was the 92 ACV)

We used to like the Per Se, but for some reason haven't bought any the past few years.

I'm lost. Which wine are we now talking about?

- Kcwhippet - 10-17-2006

The Weener was talking about the Anderson Conn Valley. I was talking about the Peachy Canyon. Sorry for confusing you there, IK.

Had another St. Francis for lunch yesterday with a nice thick grilled ribeye. Still seems like a baby but approaching maturity. Lovely juice. No change in scoring. WW
