Re: What bottle of wine did you open today?

2008 Loring "Central Coast" Pinot Noir.

Popped (or unscrewed) and poured. Soft and lush. Easy to drink the whole bottle by myself.

Re: Pinot Days - Some quick random thoughts

Meiomi's little marketing stunt was tasteless at best. What was the stunt? It may have been the 2 long-legged gals in super short shorts telling folks to go to the Meiomi table.

Avoid Mario Batalli's (sp?) places as they do not allow you to BYO (which is why I will never go back)

On Sundays, Rosemary's wines are 50% off so that's an attraction.

Re: Best of the Russian River Barrel Tasting

I've found it less crowded with buses the further north you go. Last year, I started in Geyserville and also went along Hwy 128 and it was much more relaxed than downtown Healdsburg & Dry Creek Valley.
