    Huber Cellars Dornfelder - estate fruit from Santa Rita Hills 2006

    If I remember correctly, this winery has the only acreage planted in Dornfelder in the entire state. Incredible, almost black in color with a luxuriant mouthfeel and soft tannins.

    It ain't cheap ($24.99 / 750ml), but is a really nice wine for the price.


    We also picked up a bottle of the "Dornfelder Port" described in the link below, but have yet to open it.

    Thanks to Randy at Wine Country for the heads up -

    Never been to anything similar up north, but have gone a number of times to the the barrel tastings in Temecula.

    The various wineries have food to go with the wines they are showcasing. Everything was pretty chaotic, but we always had a good time.

    Last night, my wife (24diving) and I went to the most amazing wine tasting over at The Wine Country.

    Randy the owner had been able to get some unbelievable German wines, at a discounted price yet, because the producer was no longer going to go with the previous wholesaler. As a retailer, it pays to have a good relationship with your sources.

    The wines were from the various vineyards of Wegeler. The vintages ranged from 2005 to 2008 (one of the best in memory), and were selected from a half-dozen holdings in both the Mosel and Rheingau. Included were two from the legendary Bernkasteler Doctor vineyard.

    Represented were classifications from Kabinett (driest) to Trockenbeerenauslese (TBA) (rarest dessert wine).

    I've been to some really special wine tastings, but the rarity of the offerings at this one made it entirely unique. It's insane to have an Eiswein, Beerenauslese, and Trockenbeerenauslese at the same sitting.

    If you ever get the chance to try top-shelf German wines such as these take advantage of it.


    These wines are liquid gold.


    Some of the offerings -

    Wegeler Rheingau 2007 Geisenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Eiswein half bottle from The Wine Country


    Wegeler Mosel 2008 Bernkasteler Doctor Riesling Spatlese from The Wine Country


    One we picked up -

    Wegeler Rheingau 2007 Geisenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Auslese from The Wine Country


    My wife is now a 5-year cancer survivor, so this is one's for her -

    Wegeler Rheingau 2005 Geisenheimer Rothenberg Riesling Beerenauslese BA half bottle from The Wine Country


    Thanks, Randy, for an unbelievable experience!

    Here's a winery located not too far from where I live. Haven't tried the wine yet, but some people I know say it's very good. How could you not like a place that sells a wine with the name Do-Re-Mi-Fa-Q?

    Long Trout Winery, Auburn, PA 17922

    When I was in NYC earlier this week, I found a store selling 2005 d'Arenburg Dead Arm Shiraz for $25. This is a legit 95 point (Wine Spectator) beauty that usually sells for $45 to $60. I bought 3. Yummy!!!
