What did I just buy? Kalin Cellars

Postby JoePerry » Tue Oct 03, 2006 3:23 pm

Kalin Cellars 1996 "Livermore" Semillon, 1994 "Cuvee LD" Chardonnay, and 1990 "Potter Valley Reserve" Sauvignon Blanc.

They sounded interesting, and I feel like I've heard of the wines before (maybe even had one a long time ago?).

Thoughts on these wines?

The Semillion should be ripe. Won't even venture a guess on the other two.

Ripe as in gobs of hedonistic ebob fruit, or ripe as in ready to drink?

Thanks!

Joe


p.s. curse those late-night impulse purchases, or as I like to call them, "I need that!"

You bought more wine?

I'm a terrible person. :shock:

At least these bottles are from someone who will ship to MA.

Only if you have two cases though.

So I need to keep buying.

Plus I gave you a bottle, so that was one less...
