    QOTD: I just opened last night a bottle of 2006 Panarroz, Jumilla, 90pts RP and it was just too fruit bomb for me, sweet, Halls cherry cough drops. Not what I was expecting. :(

    Most recent wine-related disappointment: Located 5 bottles of 96 Leoville Barton at a decent price, snatched them up, drank one and found it rather “meh.” (Full disclosure: the wine had probably been stored at room temp for the past 8-9 years and my preference leans towards the Rhone). On the upside, I was able to sell or trade the remainging ones at a profit, more than covered the bottle I drank.

    Been disappointed in many wines over many years. I would like the idea of you and Mott competing in wrestling though. Could that be a casual Friday. I mean real casual LOL.

    I’m biased as I worked for Croser at Petaluma for a number of years. So I make that point known straight up. The Tapanappa Chardonnay is made predominantly from the Tiers vineyard, directly next door to the original Petaluma Winery, and was the Foundation vineyard for the Tiers Chardonnay for many years.

    Traditionally it’s always been quite tight for the first few years, but develops remarkably well. It’s always been more elegant and refined than many Australian Chardonnays, a point of difference that is refreshing.

    I’ve tasted the Tapanappa, and in my opinion it just needs time. Can’t say I’ve tried the Girardin, so can’t comment. Can’t win em all, but great match-up.

    Piper is my all-time fav wrestler. I thought I read somewhere that he had it in his WWF contract that he could never be pinned? Obviously DQ’s and tag matches count as loses but if thats true I still think its pretty wicked. Piper would win that match, btw. :) Tough deal on the first battle royal of the week. Hope the rest of the week brings it. QOTD: The 2008 Seahawks season. Even with the injuries we had, I thought we could at least be 8-8 ( I knew the playoffs was out of the question once Matt went down long-term).
