Needed to clear out some bottles. Charles Krug 2006 Merlot Heron Hill 2007 Blaufrankisch Mud House 2008 Pinot Noir (NZ, central otaga) No one comes to this site to see these wines slammed, so I won't. The only bottle I felt sorry for was the poor American Oak drenched Heron Hill. I believe in the Fingerlakes and want someone other than SIlver Thread and Wiemer to get it right. Come on guys! The terroir is there for the taking! Do something! So obviously something had to be done. Regnie Sans Souffre to the rescue. I've been a fan of the regular cuvee of this producer, one of the few Biodynamic in Beaujo, but this sans souffre, is certainly gorgeous. It's a poster child for non-sulfur winemaking, with that earthiness to counter the fresh blackberry. (Vines on the average of 40 years old) with a gimme another glass acidity. There's a little of that sulfur-free breathy loosie, goosie quality but, just enough to be charming not alarming. 15.99 at Chambers Street. Please leave me a few bottles.
