No BP today.

Thanks for the note.
these were on WTSO last week as in the past.

Tried an 07 recently that was fairly good, and worth the coin paid from WTSO.

I tasted the '07 vintage a couple of months ago with Jonathan Pey when I visited him on my tour of Marin County vineyards and wineries. Jonathan & Susan make a very good Marin Pinot and Riesling under their Pey-Marin label and a few other wines sourced from Marin and other areas under other labels (Mt. Tamalpais, Textbook). I really liked the '07 and remember being impressed by an earlier vintage I’d tried at a tasting in SF 2-3 years ago. Nice Syrah with some cool-climate Sonoma Coast character at a good price. My impression on tasting the earlier vintages has also been that these can stand a few years of cellar time to develop.
