willi loth appellations

Vine Cliff WineryImage of Vine Cliff Winery via Snooth2007 Vine Cliff Chardonnay Carneros.. over the top chard of oak and vanilla. and malolactic.. tropical fruit... viscousity out the ear... pass

Domaine de Fontenille Cotes du Luberon 2007 one of the regions of southern france that does grenache and syrah really well. This was one of the best I tasted today but it would have been popular a year and a half ago when the 07 rhones were all the rage. cloudy purple in the glass.. dark brooding red berry fruit.. and dirt.. nice acidity on the finish

2006 Vine Cliff Cabernet Sauvignon Napa .. dark purple and lots of pencil box aromas.. it puts the T in tannic.. heavy on the oak.. good middle flavors but surprisingly limited on the finish.
