The Petaluma Gap Wind to Wine event is one of the better wine tasting events around right now, it’s small, it’s easy to get a good sense of the appellation and it’s not too expensive. 82 more words

2007 Le Vieux Donjon Châteauneuf-du-Pape. This is big. Huge, really. One can definitely tell this was a warm vintage. Very ripe, very tropical fruited, borderline roasted and overripe. I like it, but I don't love it. 75% Grenache, 10% Sarah, 19% Mourvedre.

2001 Domaine Grand Veneur Châteauneuf-du-Pape Les Origines. Great wine that is also drinking at peak right now. Blackberry, plum, pure truffle and earth. Reminiscent of mature Bandol due to the intense black truffle flavor and aroma. Really a great wine from a great vintage that is drinking perfectly and can keep going for some time to come.
