On the whole I thought it was terrific. The Chardonnay/Albarinho rocked!

Great new feature! I missed the tasting last night, but am glad to have the list.
I'll get back to you on what receives a "smiley".

I remember the tasting you did one afternoon a few years ago. That was Terrific. I'm retired and looking for things to do during the daytime. Hope to see you do something once and awhile for us people who do not care to drive downtown at rush hour!!

Here's some feedback from my skimpy notes:
Table 1 Whites

1. Domaine Labbe Savoie, France $14.99/$11.97 - liked this wine, very pleasant bouquet, good in the mouth as well.
6. Doniene Txakolina, Spain $22.99 - may need to get this just to experience the unusual grape!
8. H. Lagarde Blanc de Noir Rosé, Argentina $12.99 - liked this better than Rose number 7.

Table 2

1. Due Mari Sangiovese, Italy $8.99 - liked the price and the wine!
4. Red Rock Merlot, California $11.99 - nice bouquet, disappointed in the mouth.

Table 3

1. Robert Skalli Pinot Noir, France $19.99/$15.97 - didn't find much to like about this wine
2. Montellori “Moro” Super Tuscan $14.99 - some complexity and body to this affordable super Tuscan; may come back for more.
6. Michael David Petite-Petite, Lodi $19.99 - Cool label! Liked the front and rear views of the elephants.

As usual, a lot of fun. Thanks for doing these tastings!

What a fantastic way to try some new wines. It was great and I was happy to buy the wines I liked that evening so that I can share them with friends.
