AUCTION: Loring Wine Company - Cabinet of Curiosities - 6 Bottles

#1 Post by brigcampbell » January 3rd, 2017, 8:57 am

Donor: Loring Wine Company
Value: Priceless!!! But ~$280 if you can find them, which you can't
MinBidIncr: $10
Auction Closes: 8pm PT

A 6 bottle assortment of weird and unusual wines produced by Loring Wine Company.
  • 2009 Divergence : Our hommage to the wines of Bodegas El Nido. A Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvedre blend that has aged magnificently.
  • 2010 Convergence : A Grenache and Mourvedre blend that doesn't stray as far from normal as Divergence.
  • 2011 Grenache : One of only two 100% Grenaches we've ever made. More Spanish influenced than French.
  • 2011 Mourvedre : It's hard to get Mourvedre ripe enough to stand on its own, but it happened in this vintage. A super yummy wine that tastes like liquid Tootsie Rolls.
  • 2014 The Three : A blend of three of the biggest, baddest Pinot barrels in the winery.
  • 2015 Dornfelder : WTF? Exactly!! A wine that makes Petite Sirah seem wimpy.

A fun lot. I remember when Brian invited me into his closet of curiosities. He kept screaming, "it's a cookbook!" And laughing. Do not go in the closet.

240!

What is man, when you come to think upon him, but a minutely set, ingenious machine for turning, with infinite artfulness, the fine red wine of Shiraz into urine?
