thierry plummentaz with fine wine group.

Scharffenberger Brut Sparkling NV North Coast a little earthier than expected.. pleasant enough mousse.. starting to show the disgorgement date which is kind of cool for a non vintage... that way you can see when it came to the market

Roederer Estate Anderson Valley NV.. interesting to see the difference between the two sparklings. this one had no malo and a lot more refreshing acidity.

Fleur de Cap Chardonnay Stellenbosch 2012.. oaky and oaky nose.. maibe a little too overpowering

Domaine Ott Rose Bandol... a rose made with all the main black grapes of the Bandol leading with Mourvedre... smelled a touch off to me.. but sometimes the earthy character of the french overpowers

Meerlust Merlot South Africa 2008... doesnt look that old in the glass but very rich... and some richness on the end.

Querciabella Mongrana Toscana Red blend.. sangiovese, cab. and merlot.. the sangiovese definitely comes through..just got some good press from the spectator and I didnt get it..

Marques de Murrieta Reserva 2007.. spice box nose, cedar.. with some brett on the nose, long finish... great steak wine
