Excellent news, Chess - glad to see you warming up to it. Now I can reveal my true identity as the Vinturi Marketing Director.

I'm set to buy one for a friend for Xmas this year. That means our New Year's dinner party will be a Venturi taste off!!

I know i know, it is 9 months away, but...maybe we'll try the decanter time tests in the meantime.

I've never heard of bounce shock, good to know.


I've heard of it as "bruising".
I can believe that shaking up a red (or the occasional white) with alot of sediment can make for an unpleasant experience in the texture on the tongue, but really, the chemistry inside the bottle (a closed system) shouldn't be affected by a bit of sloshing otherwise.
The sediment may take awhile to settle though which could cause the wine to taste somewhat 'muddy' until it does.

You can find micro metal filters and funnel systems if one is in a rush to open the wine and drink before settling.

I had the 2006 Orin Swift – “The Prisoner” the other night. This is my second time with this bottle / vintage. The first time I had it, it was the same day my order arrived. I was pretty disappointed with it and was hoping it was off because of shipping shock. Whether that was why I was disappointed or not, it was very good this second go around. Fruit forward, but not too much like some zins can be. While there is fruit on the nose, it's mixed with smoke and pepper simular to a South American Malbec, which I find unusual. Great structure, mellow tannin and a finish that doesn’t really finish. I don’t think I’ve ever had a bottle with a finish this long.

We're packing up tonight for tomorrow's trip to the coast for Easter. I'm taking a bottle of Chase Cellars Syrah as well as a bottle of Graham's 1994 Vintage Porto, neither of which I have tried. We will stop at a few of the Paso wineries to pick up anything else we might want or need , as well as a much anticipated stop at Turley's wine tasting room in Templeton.

Watch out for Turley. They are very hard on the checkbook. I love their wine, but sure hate how much they cost. Their P/Sirah's have got to be the best in the world.

I'm going to a blind tasting tomorrow. We will be pouring five different cabs from five different regions (North America, South America, France, Spain, Auz), ranging in price between $10 and $100.

Just got back from dinner and our last tasting stop at Turleys, they weren't tasting any of their P/Sirah's but I had five of the biggest and boldest Zins I've ever tasted, really some great wines.
What I was really pleased about is that this is the first time I've seen prices in a tasting room that were about half the price of online sales. The bottles ranged from a $10.00 table Zin (labled Red Velvet Presenti} to an $80.00 reserve. I purchased a case of wine (all Zins) Red Velvet, Turley's Presenti, Earthquake and Dogtown are a few I can remember without getting into the case, but the bottles I purchased ranged from $10.00 to $55.00 most being in the mid $30.00 range.
We plan on going back on the way home Monday just to check if our half inebriated palates missed anything we may want to have a second shot at. \:\) I'll also see if I can taste or grab a couple Petite Sirah's.

The St Helena Wine Center carries Turley, but I don't know where else you can get it.

I have not tried anything from them but their Petite Sirah. It’s good to know their Zin is good too. I’ve been on their “waiting” list to get on their “mailing” list for several months. A friend of mine gets wine from them twice a year, but it’s by allotment and he’s real friggin stingy with it.

If you ever get to San Francisco, you ought to swing by the Wattle Creek tasting room at Ghirardelli Square. I’ve been very happy with just about everything from them. Plus, if you get in the creek club membership, shipping is free.
