How do you get them into your posts?
Jenise wrote:Interesting about the Anden--I hope your note will help generate more interest. I know when Mark first bottled it he had trouble getting people to understanding that this wasn't an interloper but an old friend. Interesting to contemplate too, now that I think of it, that the new Seven Springs sans Anden is actually closer to the original Seven Springs I fell in love with so long ago in terms of vine age than recent vintages of Seven Springs were considering the age of the now-Anden vines.
Jenise wrote:Compelling reaction to the Pinot Blanc, btw. I'm definitely not sold on that grape where US producers are concerned, even St. Innocent, but your reaction says I better take a second look. Hopefully Mark sends one out with the club shipment.
Jenise wrote:The Freedom Hill chardonnay--much as I dislike what happens to pinot noir in that vineyard, the same steroidal effect on chardonnay creates one of America's most unique white wines. It's the intensity of Kistler without the tropicality. Before I swore of swordfish for environmental reasons, the FH was my favorite wine for the steak of fish. Now I settle for salmon. Got a bottle here to try, think I'll move it to the tasting queue to make sure I get around to it.

Jenise wrote:Speaking of chardonnay, in another thread, did you say the Arcadian Sleepy Hollow was one of the best chardonnays you've ever had? I was thinking so when I scooped up bottle of the 2001 yesterday in Vancouver.

Jenise wrote:Oh, and re yet another thread in which we talked, you mentioned a trade for a Brick House? I would absolutely say yes, only it turns out mine are 2000's, not 99's as I'd thought. I presume the 2000 isn't of as much interest to you.
