Had some neighbors over this evening for grilled ribeyes, grilled zuchinni and twice baked taters, and I opened a 2005 Sequel Syrah (made by the same guy that developed the Penfold Grange). It did not disappoint and was very, very good. I would say the taste, aroma, experience was about 80% of the Grande, but at about 20% of the price (the 2001 Penfold Grange is likely best bottle I have ever had..simply incredible...), so this Sequel was certainly nice

That sounds like a fun project. I like drinking wine.

I'll check it out!

Good to know! I will be at the Long Shadow's winery this Oct and will be able to taste all their different lables, including the Sequel.

I like Grange too. Their RWT is right up there with it, for slightly less money. The 707 is another great Penfolds.

Wow, that would be a great visit to their winery..I am jealous! Out here on the right coast, there are several wineries, although the varieties out here are decidedly fruitier and lighter then those on the left coast. I have never had a RWT...I will have to give one a try. Also, since I assume you are in the Pac NW, are you familiar with Apogee wine? I have one sitting in the wine cooler and have never tried one (although I have heard good things about them)

Oh and yep, you can count me as one that uses one of those diffuser thingies...tried it for the first time last night..nice!

Apogee? You mean from L'Ecole winery? If so, I have not had it, but we will be at that winery right after Long Shadows and Spring Valley, and then we hit Col Solare to finish that day off. All four of these wineries are within a few miles from each other, west of Walla Walla.

The Apogee looks pretty good……..

L'Ecole No 41 Apogee Pepperbridge Vineyard received 93 points from Wine Advocate (Parker) 7/08. They said: "The 2005 Apogee Pepper Bridge Vineyard is 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot, 7% Malbec, and 3% Cabernet Franc. Saturated purple colored, it has a slightly brooding nose of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, and assorted black fruits. It is the most structured of the L'Ecole reds with darker fruit and greater aging potential. Drink this superb effort between 2015 and 2030."
The pinnacle, or apogee, of L'Ecole's red wines. Produced from Walla Walla's Pepper Bridge vineyard, the 2005 is a classic wine. Made for cellaring, yet ripe and open enough to decant and enjoy.


So I take it you have had a few NY wines? I have not ever tried them. There are none to be found here.

Quiet in here these days.

Just giving a two thumbs up to the Rosemount Old Benson port.
Loving these Aussie style ports the past few years. I think someone once told me the Aussies call them "stickies" as in sticky sweet wines.
