    Good episode

    Am answering late so the score is already known.

    Old world food – Italy for sure.

    This wine is a blend of all 2007 fruit, but the concept of this wine is to be non-vintage. The wine is a blend from some of the top vineyards in the Willamette Valley, 30 percent Meredith Mitchell, 30 percent Wind Hill, 20 percent Gran Moraine, 10 percent Canary Hill, and 10 percent Stermer. The tannic structure comes mainly from the Meredith Mitchell fruit, a vineyard about 10 miles southwest of McMinnville, north of the Van Duzer passageway which leads to the ocean and named for the surnames of the owners, Susan and Frank respectively. This high elevation vineyard produces fruit that is buffeted by winds, has thicker skins, and create very structured wines. You can see an example of the effect this fruit has on the blend by trying some of the single-vineyard Meredith Mitchell wines out there, EIEIO, Raptor, Ken Wright, etc.. And this wine is available in the state of NJ, just not at the Wine Library (yet?) At this price point, it is indeed a bargin for the quality of the wine you are receiving.

    I bet it takes a while for wineries to develop a “funkified” air about them (Europe has a couple 1000 years head start)…I wonder if at some point in the future our “New World” sources will mature and take on “Old World” qualities with greater frequency.

    QOTD1: too late to answer this one…
    QOTD2: From my upbringing there are so many Italian dishes, but we still get access to them frequently…it is the Polish food, the Go??bki and Pierogi that I don’t get much anymore and really miss.
