TastingRoom.com ~ Explore the world of wines, one taste at a time

Have you ever received a wine club shipment and when you try the wine you’re disappointed? It probably wasn’t ‘bad wine’ just not your style. TastingRoom.com eliminates the disappointment factor. Their team is made up of these Celebrity Chefs, Sommeliers and award winning Wine Makers: Carol Shelton, Mario Batali, Gary Vaynerchuck, Kerry Damskey, Rajat Parr, and Michael Chiarello. With this team you can be assured you are getting top quality, sterling examples of the varietal of your choice.

A Taste Adventure
Pinot Noir 6 Flight

Here is how it works, select your varietal and you’ll receive a flight of 6-1.7oz bottles of wine complete with winery profile and tasting notes. You taste the wines, pick your favorite, go on-line and order. Basic kits start at $19.95 . Some tasting kits calledsuper-flightsinclude 2 pre-paid bottles! You can also order a ‘by the glass’ kit of 3.4oz bottles so you can enjoy a glass whenever you want without committing to opening an entire bottle. This was such a fun way to taste and explore some new-to-me wines!

My Super Flight was “A taste adventure Pinot Noir 6”

Bargetto ’09 Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains, CA Perfume nose with flavors of berry and dried strawberries. Nice acidity with a dry finish. Needed about 20 minutes to open up, I would decant if pouring from a full bottle. Alcohol 14.1% | $24.95 750ml |

Paul Dolan ’08 Pinot Noir Mendocino County, CA Earthy aromas, light bodied, cherry licorice flavors with a vanilla essence. Finish is not long but ample and smooth. Alcohol 14.5% | $22.99 750 ml |

Carrick ’09 ‘Unravelled’ Pinot Noir Central Otago, New Zealand Deep in color, beautiful perfume aromas with some spice, chocolate and balckcherry flavors. Alcohol 14%  | $29.95 750ml |

Laetitia ’09 Pinot Noir Arroyo Grande Valley, CA Deep red in color with earthy nuances on the nose, cola flavors and creamy finish. Alcohol 14.1% | $24.95 750 ml |

Schug ’09 Pinot Noir Carneros, CA Gem like in the glass, with spellbinding aromas of Pinot Noir perfume essence, with currant, strawberry and spice flavors and a silky finish. A very elegant wine. Alcohol 14% | $23.95 750 ml |

Sequana ’09 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands, CA  Bursting with aromas of fruits this wine held me captive before the first sip, luscious cherry flavors with some earthiness and an elegant finish. A spectacular varietal example. Alcohol 13.9% | $29.95 750 ml |

If you are on my gift list this year for a ham or a fruit cake you can breathe a sigh of relief because you’ll be getting one of these flights instead! Let me know which flight you would select!

    Christmas & Holiday Gift Buying in August! What a perfect way to de-stress the upcoming holidays. I must admit to also buying several for our home to enjoy this fall with those inevitable college football fans who seem to descend on our house each for year for the weekend of the big game (or truth be told, any weekend for any game)!
