well - wanted to say that this past year i had a bottled of Sean Thackrey's Andromeda pinot noir. Wow - it was the finest pinot i have ever had and also pretty much the finest bottle of wine i have had. it is available exclusively from sean thackrey. He is rated as on of the top 3 winemakers in North America. Pricey but damn it is so nice and most unique of all pinot's ever tasted. And i am a pinot head.
anyway - i received a birthday gift from my adopted sister and old friend last Nov. i laid down and today after a lot of work all A.M. in the garden here. I came in to warm up and have a taste and opened this bottle of 2013 Edict. pinot noir from anderson valley - pricey too but man this is incredible. tasting it as i am typing this i thought i ought to post this off topic thread.
my vineyard buds are just popping ad fruit is popping and just planted 400 onions today and 18 raspberries.
anyway - i do not endorse too many wines but these 2 are so delightful! even sensuous!!!! i hope to be able to afford a couple or few bottles of sean's this year; but things have been very bad the last year!
