Vintwined

Location: Pasadena/L.A., CA

About Me: A Los Angeles resident for nearly a decade, I work in the wine consignments department for a leading wine auction house.

My husband and I drink wine regularly, and work in tasting trips as often as we can. I've been interested in wine for about six years now, and in the industry for three years.

My label photos are primarily sourced from our Picasa album, which is comprised of bottles we enjoyed at home - the good *and* the awful. Right now we have about 800 bottles in that diary, and I'm slowly moving them over to my Wine Log (in addition to new ones as I go along.)

Cheers!

Fruity, silky, like a sweaty dance party over new asphalt. (Sounds a lot worse than that is.) Surprisingly good for the price. A fun wine and a go-to take-out-for-your-drunk-friends bottle to have on hand. - 05/06/2012

Dry farmed, jammy, spicy, dry. The word that came to mind was, "Pretty." I am not in love with it but it's - nice. - 05/06/2012

Burning paper, smoke, sweet spices (nose.) Cinnamon galore! Yikes. Bigger style. Not my thing. Can I say this is actually about 2.5 stars? 2.75 stars? - 05/06/2012

Pisoni. Unoaked. Acid is nicely in balance with fruit. Inexpensive ($18) Pretty tasty!

A county blend of several vyds. ($20) Like a chilled peach pie with a bit of whipped cream. - 05/06/2012

I didn't have a chance to take any notes, but was really impressed with this wine. Definitely delicious, silky, nicely balanced. I have had very few Heitz wines, so I'd be interested in trying some older vintages of this particular bottle. - 05/06/2012

I wish I had a bottle at home - really nice Chardonnay for the price. Not a butter bomb and not an acidic mess either. Perfectly balanced, a little ripe for me but to sip - mais, oui! - 05/06/2012

Unfortunately (BUMMER!) the wine was totally dead. Gone. Adios. Bleh. I got to smell it - and it smelled pretty bad. BUMMER!! - 05/06/2012

I didn't take any notes, but I do recall not really liking this style of pinot noir very much. It was overwhelmingly toffee-centric, oaky, could barely taste the fruit. Meh. - 05/06/2012

Color: light honey
Nose: nursing home butterscotch candies, yellow peach, nutmeg, salty ocean air
Palate: toffee, lemon meringue, kitchen spices, loooooooong finish. Overall it's pretty good, though I'd hesitate to drop that kind of change on this bottle. Still, an interesting tasting experience! - 05/06/2012

My notes were quickly written on this one:
"A lot of oak, citrus, spices. Lighter bodied than I would have imagined it would be. Silky with good acidity but a bit much of the toffee-warm brown sugar thing going on. For the price, I'm 'meh' on it."
Overall I was unimpressed. - 04/09/2012
