Sampled this at Midway yesterday and bought a case on the spot. Medium bodied showing dusty dark fruit, currant, dark cherry flavors with hints of chocolate and tobacco. Very, very nice. Paid $135 for the case. Nice QPR Napa Cab.

This sucker's been my house wine for the last 6 months. Hotsie and others on the board have sung the praises also. Killer juice for 12.59 here in Az. It's also my gifting red for my customers salespeople this Xmas. WW

Half-way through the second case and taking two btls to Christmas party tonight for pairing with BEEF tenderloin. Very very nice.

I agree, very nice for the price. It's a wine you can bring out for a party. For some reason, and I can't remember why, I think it is in some way related to the West Pinot Noirs....but don't quote me on that. getting old here.

Avalon and August West - same owner, same winemaker. Used to own Blackstone, also.

Oh Eng, you missed the Belgian beer tasting yesterday.

Tough week KC, many changes at my company..... I could've used a few Belgian Beers.

Just received the monthly mailer from Hi-Time Cellars in Costa Mesa Ca. and it's their "Wine-of-the-Month". Also said the one and only Bobby-Boy His-Highness-Visionary stated in his newsletter that it was the best under 20buck Napa cab he'd had in 20 years or something along those lines. WW
