A reall nice article on Joel Peterson in the S-R Press-Democrat: JoelPeterson
It pretty much captures of the JoelPeterson that I know. Did I ever mention that I followed him from (before) the very start?? Nawh…probably forgot to.
I tasted his Once & Future wines w/ Joel back in June. They’re pretty terrific…like the old-timey Ravenswoods.
It pretty common to trash the Ravenswood vnyd-designate Zins since the Constellation buy-out. I think they’re probably just as good as they’ve ever been. Joel still has the say-so in their making. As for the Vintner’sBlend…not tried that in yrs.
Awwwww, Mel…how could you forget the first TN (short/boring) I took on a cuneiform tablet when I tried Pliny the Elder’s first wine. I tried to
upload it to the InterNet but my cuneiform/card-reader didn’t have a USB port yet!!!
Thanks for the link. I tried the Once and Future Zin a few months back and it was terrific. I will purchase more going forward (being on the list and all). Those Bedrock Zins (and Heritage, and Syrah, etc.) “rock” as well…
So what do you match with those Hatch green chiles? I need to order some more…cannot find them in Chicagoland…
