Howie, I have to confess: I opened all the wines you sent me. This one got put into an upright serving cooler thingie for multiple bottles, and the ink did not like getting wet. Was it the 2012 you sent me? I am guessing it is. You sent me a drier white (same issue), a lemberger and your cab franc-merlot blend.
So here's the second part of the confession. We opened and enjoyed them all the same day with the guests I told you I was saving them for, but it turned into a week of chaos as our beloved cat died and normalcy disappeared. I don't know what I did with my notes. I've been hoping to find them before confessing to all this, but I haven't done so yet so should speak up, as you rightfully would be wondering. Anyway...Julia's note brings back the semi-dry wine perfectly. Bill's wife was especially gaga over it, and I found it a perfect cheese wine, the semi-dryness playing into the salt beautifully. Not everyone agrees with me that white wines ARE better with cheese, but I think anyone in doubt would have been convinced by your wine.
My wine shopping and I have never had a problem. Just a perpetual race between the bankruptcy court and Hell.--Rogov
