We bottled our first 2011 vintage wine yesterday, the Elizabeth Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc. Great flavor, racy acidity and unmistakeable varietal character. We fermented this year’s wine a bit dryer (0.2% RS) compared to the 2010 vintage (0.5% RS).
For those who have been following my new career critiquing the reliability of wine competitions, there is a new book out, A Toast to Bargain Wines, by George Taber, who writes about my work. Chapter 4 is titled, “Are Gold Medals Worth Anything?
George is a rather famous author with his first book describing the 1976 Paris Tasting where the Americans topped the French. His second book, To Cork or not to Cork, is a well documented tale describing the drama of Cork Taint.
Hello everyone. I hope you enjoy our new website.
