ah...Paso Robles. Dover Canyon is my favorite in the area. I also really enjoyed the wine at Turley the last time I was up there. It was rather pricey though.

I've heard about Turley but sadly haven't found anything here in the far corners of Manitoba.
I think michaeld had mentioned something about Turley a few forum pages back.

Well, I finally found a winery in Virginia that produces bottles I don't regret purchasing. smile It's called Otium Cellars and it's about 10 minutes away from my house. Their Cabernet Sauvignon is quite tasty, but their standout is their Dornfelder, a German varietal.

I finally opened a couple of the wines I picked up over Christmas.

The first was a Rosewood Estates Gewurztraminer. It had an unusually delicate/subtle flavour for a Gewuz. It was a little sweeter than the usual (good for my sister in law) and had what I can only describe as flowery overtones.

The second was a Hidden Bench '09 Pinot Noir, Felseck vinyard. Yum!!! Don't really know how to describe it, but I loved the nose and it had a smooth lingering finish that left you longing for another sip and another and another...

I don't usually have more than one glass of red, but I could have kept drinking this one all night long.

Sadly i have to report i have not had any interesting wines lately as we plowed through many of our house brands lately.
That being said, we have an increasing number of older bottles that were never meant for long term storage, most in the price range of $25+.

I guess this year is going to become a rather expensive one for imbibing.

I had a very reasonably priced French Bordeaux the other night. So it should be available for anyone. Chateau Moya, 2009

I bought it at wine.com for $20 on a whim (normally $35). I will be ordering a case of it. It has your typical fruit and dirt smells that some of the better French bordeaux have. I have not found many wines that share this blend of fruitiness and earthiness other than a few very expensive bottles. It was well balanced with just enough acid, medium to heavy body, good pallet and surprisingly long finish. I happen to like this type of wine more than any other, so for me, this bottle is a definite SCORE!
