    Added a '11 Mourvedre Spur Ranch San Benito County to my order from Stefania.

    I don't think I've even seen a single varietal Mourvedre being sold elsewhere. Should be interesting.

    I don't think I've seen a straight Mourvedre either. That should be fun though let me know how it is when you try it!

    Will do.

    Having a '10 Chateau Ste Michelle Cold Creek Vineyard Cabernet. Really good for $23! Washington continues to impress.

    The 2011 Phelps is garbage. To the point that I think it has to be this bottle being off. Tastes like it might have seen too much heat.

    Anyway, opened a 2011 Caymus and I'm much happier.

    Has 2011 really been that poor of a vintage for Napa?

    What about compared to Caymus? Good winery that is typically consistent right? I'm pretty sure you've had every vintage of Caymus (regular) Cabernet for quite some time, so there's a means of comparison there right?

    I probably have had every vintage of Caymus going back to the early 90's. Caymus is spectacularly consistent. They also have a trademark sweetness that I can only describe as cherries. The 2011 is well worthy of the name despite the poor vintage. The 2011 Joseph Phelps is not.

    The thing is, once you try their Special Selection it destroys the regular Caymus for you. Regular Caymus is my 'daily drinker' so to speak. The Special Selection is truly special.

    I don't think I've ever tried an Oregon Syrah. That alcohol % would lead me to guess it was a big wine with a bit of fruit up front.

    Wait, it's a California wine that's produced/bottled in Oregon? Doesn't that mean the grapes are from California?

    Good catch. Oregon winery with California Syrah grapes I guess?

    I had a BRILLIANT and I mean AWESOME $19.99 California Chardonnay last night... 3rd bottle in 2 weeks... called Bouchaine 2009

    Nice oak and fruit with buttery/silky dry finish... just great 92/100 it is THAT good and better than most of the $40-$55 Chards I have had during the last year or 2

    https://www.cellartracker.com/list.a...ab0c43e2c75f40

    my review

    2009 Bouchaine Chardonnay

    Carneros more
    Options
    5/2/2014 - I LIKE THIS WINE: 92 points (Edit)

    Wow good stuff like all good CALI Chardonnays used to be before the Nancy Boys started making unoaked and lightly oaked swill...

    Nice integrated oak, some butter and vanilla.... nice long dry finish

    Superb stuff, for $20 a bottle at Westhampton Fine Wine, this is a BARGAIN

    Did a little wine tasting at Wine Lab in Costa Mesa. Not quite sure how long the first two were open, but the CDP was opened for my pour. Had the...

    '12 Orin Swift Abstract - plush and fruit forward, enjoyable ($7 for 3 oz)
    '11 Orin Swift Papillon - a little green, not quite sure why this one is more popular than Abstract ($11 for 3 oz)
    '10 Domaine du Vieux Lazaret Chateauneuf du Pape - VERY earthy initially, but after about 30-45 min, just candy/kirsch fruit. Delicious. My first CDP. ($18 for 6 oz)

    Was hoping they would pour the '10 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel, but they only sold it by the bottle or half bottle and the prices were not that great since I just saw it at Hi Times earlier for about $10 less.

    It's a much better wine than the Abstract. The problem is you tried a very weak vintage of Papillon vs a very strong vintage of Abstract.

    It's a great wine to try. I don't think I will be buying it again though. It's a good eye opener if you aren't used to Rhones.

    Orin Swift - one of the great cons in USA wine history IMHO, overpriced bollocks wines

    but then again good luck to him for selling that Prisoner crap at $42 retail a bottle

    BTW tonight is last hurrah, have to really stop drinking as my health is really bad, not alcohol related but doctors tell me it cannot help

    Enjoy the wines of the world without my buying pressure now guys

    I have to disagree. They make stuff that's different. I like that they do that. Their blends are unique and not just the same cab this or cab that.

    Just tried a glass of The Prisoner last night (2012 vintage, I think). Came off as fairly light bodied - very one dimensional. I still prefer Abstract to this.

    Also had a glass of Sans Liege The Offering. That was a delicious GSM.

    On a side note, my tasting skills suck when I'm not drinking at home using my own glasses.

    Wait, I'm confused. Are there 2 Prisoner's on the market? One from Orin Swift? And one just called The Prisoner?
