My Wine Tasting Guide

For my 46th birthday Nancy gave me a subscription with Vintage Wines. Each month they send me a bottle of red wine and a bottle of white. Here I'll list the wines I receive and my tasting notes. I'm also listing some wines I like but were not part of the wine club:

May 2008 OK, here we go again. After August 2007 they again stopped sending me the monthly shipment and again Nancy renewed my subscription for my birthday. Let's see how long this lasts.

My initial subscription ended in August. For reasons that continue to elude me Vintage Wines never contacted me to renew and it lapsed. It began again in February 2007

My Tasting Notes

Here I have listed wines that I've enjoyed but were not sent to me by the wine club:

In the summer of 2006 Nancy and I found a wine store hear Petco Park called Fifty Seven Degrees. They provide storage for your wine collection (we're unlikely to use that service). They are also a wine bar and we tasted some great wines there. I had a Zinfandel from Orchid Hill Wines and Nancy had a Australian Chardonnay from Palandri Vineyards. I liked the Zin because it was one of the few times I could actually taste what they were talking about and I liked the frutiness. Nancy liked the chardonnay because (unlike most American chards) this wasn't aged in oak and didn't taste (to her) like a picnic table. We've become big fans of Fifty Seven Degrees but only wish it were closer. It's near the ballpark but we're normally on a tight schedule when we're down there.
