Hey Lon! The 2012 Kosta Browne lineup was showing very well - and their new facility is gorgeous. I thought all of the wines were outstanding, but the Sonoma Coast and Keefer were standouts for me - though I wasn't obsessing over each specific bottling too much. Just enjoying the experience. You know what wine has really blown me away though? Their Chardonnay. My goodness. I've only tasted it at the winery but it's like magic on the nose.

Rodgers Creek has been terrific for me as well. 92 across the board across a number of bottles. And good point - all Sojourn single vineyards aren't priced equally. Cheers Chad!

Ooo - Southern Rhone. That's not too far from some areas in the south of France I'd very much like to visit. That sounds awesome to me.

Cheers Lon!

I have! Just looked back at my notes on their 2010 Pinot. I *did* note ample fruit and thought it was a great value in the $30 neighborhood. Solid stuff.

I hope you're not right. I could be reading way more into the truck permitting business than is warranted. Let's hope it's not that big a deal. We shall see.

It's been a while but I did try the 2009 Green Fin White. Not bad!

Thursday, December 02, 2010 - I think this wine would play well at a summer tiki party. On a chilly late autumn evening in New England it seemed overly sweet if guzzle-able so I'll give it a "good" rating.

83/100 points.

I definitely sense a shift where Flowers is now vs. where I'd mentally pegged the style 5+ years ago. Will look forward to trying more! Thanks for checking in. :)

I'd put Siduri and Loring more on the ripe end of the spectrum. I was surprised how restrained (in a good way) this Flowers was. I'd previously wrongly pegged them as a higher octane producer I think.

I had a '12 Ken Wright Willamette Valley Pinot recently. It was "very good" but not quite "outstanding" for me. I think I need to step up to the single vineyard bottlings?

There sure are a lot of publications and people out there scoring wines - I agree. I think once a person develops confidence navigating a category and learns their favorite producers scores mean less and less. But still, when someone is just exploring a category and buying off rating - that's what I'm trying to model with the WWP QPR Calculator.

Thanks for your comment!
