What do you think?


  1. Three wines today, during lunch a 2009 Kerner by Lemon Creek Winery in Michigan and a 2009 Chardonel by Founders Wine Cellars also in Michigan. Our June travels took us to wineries in the Lake Michigan Shore AVA. The Kerner was a light straw color and had a floral and yellow stone fruit aroma. There was yellow stone fruit on the taste and the crisp finish saw fruit yielding to roses. The Chardonal was also a light straw color. It had apple on the aroma and the taste was apple and a hint of caramel. The finish was crisp and fruity.

    For dinner we are going to have a bottle of the 2009 Illuminatus Cabernet Sauvignon that Kathy and I made at Vint Hill Craft Winery in Virginia, We sorced grapes from Paso Robles.

  2. Vermentino! More if we can determine what the ten percent that isn’t vermentino is in Aargiolas Costamolino. Maybe Nuragus? Cheers!

  3. In addition to a Macon-Villages (Chardonnay) and Francis Coppola Claret (Cab Sauv) served by our friends, we opened a Portugese table wine – Bons Ventos 2008 – in your honor. It was light, fruity and delicious, and contained Castelao, Camarate, Tinta Miuda and Touriga Nacional. The Tinta Miuda was #258 for my wife and me. Happy Birthday, Wine Century Club! Hopefully this year we’ll finally find a third person from the Vienna/Fairfax VA area to finally get our local chapter started. 😉

  4. Piedirosso and Aglianico. 2008 De Angelis Lacrima Christi del Vesurio Rosso, Campania Italy

  5. Well, there were others Friday evening (including another Chardonel!), but only counting those I’ve had post midnight, I have Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillion, Gewürztraminer, Syrah, Nerello Capuccio, Nerello Mascalese, Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Viura (Macabeo), Palomino Fino.

  6. Diane’s wine was a blend of 3 Portuguese varietals: Roupeirio (35%), Antao Vaz (35%), and Perrum (30%)–VINHO Regional Alentejano Portual. Winery–Herdade Do Esporao. A well balanced fruity white wine with a clean acid finish. Mark’s wine was Agioritiko, a fruity, balanced dry deep colored red wine from Greece. Appelation of origin–Nemea,

  7. Currently relaxing outside with Horton Vineyards Sparkling Viognier N.V. with the varietal being 100% Viognier. Very tart with notes of green apples and citrus flavors.

    Mr. Gregg, I’m in the PWC area.

  8. Hello from Old Trafford (Man U’s stadium)

    Deborah and I had a Godello from Mara Martin 2010 and a fantastic traditional/modern style wine from Portugal: Quinata das Cerejoiras Obidos Reserva by Companhia Agricola do Sanguinhal, which has Castelao, Aragonez and Touriga Nacional.

    Let’s keep them coming! It’s a long way to 314!

    Veni Vino Vici!

  9. – SEMELI Mantinia Moscofilero 2011
    – SEMELI Mountain Sun Agiorgitiko Rose 2011
    – AIVALIS Assyrtiko 2011

    Excellent wines from indigenous grape varieties of Greece.

  10. Getting started early, having a sip of Bodegas Pisano Cisplatino of 60% Tannat – 40% Merlot 2010 from Uruguay with breakfast.

    Really good with Smoked Applewood Bacon, and Fried Eggs with a Cheese.

    About to go shopping for some new grapes, up to 138 now so it keeps getting harder.

  11. 2010 Cister Da Ribeira White Wine Blenf From Duoro, Portugal :

    Grape Varietals: Moscatel, Viosinho, Arinto, Fernao Pires, and Gouveio

    A delicious summer pick me up, ( even at 11 am! ): delicate sweetgrass aromas with Dried stone fruit dancing lively on the palette. A perfect day this Wine Century Club Anniversary, here in DC, to sip on a white and survey the garden. This is a wine that Pairs harmoniously with David Gray’s latest album.
    Cheers Memebers! Cin Cin to Steve.

  12. Traditional 2010 from Fronton de Oro vineyards on the Gran Canaria.
    Medium bodied tinto blend of Tintilla and Listan Negro. Delicious sense of
    earth and sea in the glass.

  13. Borard Arbois 2006 Vin Jaune de Jura, made from the Savignan grape. Enjoyed in Strasbourg with a cheese plate of Comte. Tres bon!

  14. For lunch 4 New Jersey Wines from our own Ventimiglia at our Farmers Market today

    A Vidal, a Chambourcin, a Cayuga
    & a Carignane.

    New Jersey wines are really starting to get good.

  15. Steve, It’s only 9 AM in California. Tonight I will be drinking a 2008 Batic Pinela. Wine merchant raved about it and it’s a new grape for me. That should put me at 360 varietals.

  16. Judging a wine competition in New York today. Just had a flight of Brianna, LaCrescent,, Muscato, and Himrod!

  17. I’d forgotten that today was the big day. We’ll try something a little more exotic tonight, but we were at a little party last night that saw us still sipping after midnight. It was a Grenache-themed tasting; so, I can add the old GSM to start – Grenache, Shiraz & Mourvedre. The Chateauneuf-du-Pape had some Cinsault in it and one of the Spanish bottles was a Grenache/Carignan blend.
    There’s a bit of a start. I’ll get back after dinner tonight.

  18. Petra by Kir-Yianni vineyards. 80% Roditis, 20% Malagouzia. Greek light in a glass.

  19. The grapes are not too rare but the wine is really worth the mention. Lange Rosse “Trabuch” 2009 – Neive & Diano d/Alba from Piedmont, Italy. The varietals are Barbera d’Alba, Nebbiolo and Cabernet Sauvignon.

  20. Congratulations on the 7th anniversary!

    We’ll celebrate with a very special Mencia from Bierzo, NW Spain from our friends of Demencia Wines. Insane!!!.


  21. Congrats on seven years! I’m opening a bottle of Dornfelder. I am looking for something red with a light to medium sweetness to please several wine drinkers this evening. Cheers!

  22. Happy Birthday! Queued up for lunch to celebrate the day — Spanish delights! We’ll begin with 2009 “Pasion de Bobal” (100% Bobal), then on to 2008 Pardevalles Gamonal (Prieto Picudo), and finally, the excellent 2006 Mansion Garrido (100% Juan Garcia, D.O. Arribes).

  23. Just knocked out most of a bottle made from Sagrantino grapes in California… Only 4 barrels made! These are the kinds of things that make the Wine Century Club amazing. Cheers to everyone, and I hope you all are enjoying amazing grapes.

    (Currently at 175 grapes on my end, looking at that 200 finish line with a hungry palate.)

  24. We had a great grillfest tonight (that’s a BBQ for Americans) with the plan to open some bottles of wine with more esoteric grape varieties: We enjoyed a bottle of our local Swiss Kerner to start (someone’s already discussed this today) followed by a very interesting grape from Hvar, Croatia on the Dalmatian coast…we had Zlatan Plavac 2007, a deep red wine made from the plavac mali grape. We located this wine at the Zürich Wine Exhibition last fall, and thought this the perfect occasion to share it with friends! Cheers!

  25. I enjoyed Chinon Rouge “Les Chiens-Chiens” Cab Franc (hard to find a 100% franc in Alabama). It surprised me that this red wine was so good in warm weather. It would be especially good with grilled or roasted foods. I was impressed with the balance between fruit, spice and acid in such a tight package. It had a good finish without the “cloying” mouth-feel I often get with a Cab Sauvignon.(And less the $20!)

  26. Sovereign Opal – a grape hybridized at the Okanagan Research Station (British Columbia, Canada) in the the late 20th Century, and grown only in the Okanagan Valley by Calona Wines. It is mid-bodied, off dry, slight pungent note of peach, nice summer sipper.

  27. deb and i will have a 2010 SAINT PEPIN from park farm winery at bankston,iowa tonight. it is a fruity dessert wine made from the saint pepin grape grown near sabula, iowa.

  28. Jacquère — 2009 Jongieux Vin de Savoie, Eugene Correl & Fils at Blue Water Grill, New York.

    Chris Herbert and Nancy Welch, Tempe, Arizona USA (but drinking in New York this week)

  29. Savatiano 2007 Delicious, soft nose, dark straw color, floral notes with a creamy well balanced acidit finish

  30. We’re closing in on 100 – a key number for the club (like duh)

    I’m thinking that we may not beat our 318 grape record – that year we had a boost from the controversial 100 grape Piemonte wine.

    Thanks for every note so far – there are a few tres obscure grapes! ie Matrasa, Sovereign Opal and Saint Pepin!

  31. Traminette, Villard Noir, and since Matt beat me to the Dornfelder, I switched the red to Lagrein.

  32. Lagrein riserva by muri-gries, the icon in lagrien. Spectacular. Had with porcini en brodo.

  33. We are having Greek rib eye steak for dinner made with (and tasted with) an Agiorgittko, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah blend. With dinner, we had a Xinomavro. New varietal for us. Lots of cherry fruit and a bit of licorice. Yummy. Earlier this afternoon, we hit a winery for a tasting. So to fill out the list with some more common varietals, we had Pinot Gris, Riesling, Chardonnay, Zinfandel, Barbera, Merlot and Petite Sirah.

  34. Margaret and I are going to have 2009 Quinta do Crasto, “Crasto,” Douro Vinho Branco. The wine is 45% Rabigato, 40% Gouveio, 15% Roupeiro.

  35. Bourboulenc and Clairette. 2009 M. Chapoutier “Belleruche” Cotes du Rhone Blanc. Somebody already entered the Grenache Blanc, the third grape of this blend.

  36. Tilden Peak Cellars Tria Blanc Central Coast (California) 2009: A blend of Grenache Blanc (49%), Viognier (39%), & Roussanne (12%). Seemed almost sweet at first, but it is dry with nice acidity and has aromas of citrus & melon. A great summer sipper in the Texas heat!

  37. We started out the day making strawberry jam and enjoyed strawberry wine from Leelanau Cellars (not a grape!) I mixed mine with a sparking wine from L.mawby named Sex made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. And then we moved on to Sandpiper, another sparkling wine, made with Seyval Blanc plus other varieties. Right now, we’re enjoying a wonderful Pinot Grigio from Circa Winery in northern Michigan. We’ll finish the night with a new grape for us, Mencia from Spain, named Cuatro Pasos.

  38. Tasted several rose’s today, plus Rioja with dinner:

    Bodegas las Orcas “Solar de Randez” Rosate — 100% Garnacha
    Abadal Rosat — Cabernet Sauvignon and Sumoll
    Argiolas Serra LoriIsola dei Nuraghi Rosato — Grenache, Monica, Carignano and Bovale Sardo
    iGreco Savu Rosato Gaglioppo — 100% Gaglioppo
    Domaine de Millet Cotes de Gascogne — Egiodola and Syrah
    Baron de Ley Rioja — Tempranillo
    In total, 10 different grapes.

  39. 2010 Bric Corderi Barbera d’Asti. This wine was given to me by a friend and I wasn’t sure about opening it, but boy! it’s great! Nice nose of cherry, terroir and allspice. The palate is well balanced and slightly acidic, but full for a Barbera. The lingering finish is clean and crisp. Great sipping for the summer months.

  40. Gaston Hochar 1996 Chateau Musar Bekaa Valley (Lebanon) Blanc ($30 in 2005)
    Varieties: Merwah and Obaideh.

    Clear, bright apricot color, no hint of haze or sediment. It looks a bit oxidative, and nutlike scents add to the impression, but its delicate, subtle scents of hazelnuts and toasted pecans, embraced in a slow dance with pears and dates. Discreet pecan flavors show, too, in the dry, appropriately acidic flavor, mouth-watering and food-friendly. Very unusual wine, demonstrating the conventional wisdom that Musar whites are best left for many years past the age at which you’d expect to consume them. I’ve had this very wine and vintage in its youth, and frankly, at that point I didn’t quite get what all the yelling was about. Now I do. U.S. importer: Broadbent Selections Inc., San Francisco. (June 9, 2012)

    Good with spicy asparagus and tofu stir-fry with Guilin chili sauce; even better with Sapori d’Italia Caciotta alle Noci, made-in-Kentucky Tuscan-style walnut goat cheese.

  41. I drank Punta Crena Lumassina, from Liguria in Italy. Officially it would be an IGT. the producer is from a small town in Varigotti, and the wine is imported by Kermit Lynch. this is a wine of pale yellow color, with some minerality and a bit of lemon. Highly acidic and light, minimal spritz, eaten with scallops and salad, very refreshing, a good summer seafood wine.

  42. OK, so we are behind a bit, thus I opened another obsure wine. from Georgia, not the state, but the country. The grape is Tsolikauri, the wine is “Tvishi” this is a semi sweet wine, very fresh, with more than adequate acidity, , nice with a little cheese after dinner. Winery is Teliani Valley, purchased at my favorite little wine shop in Baltimore, Swirl. Very yummy, if not very complex.

  43. NV low end white blend from South Africa, mostly Chenin blanc, with some Chardonnay and Clairette blanche blended in. Light, aromatic, went well with pasta and clam sauce.

  44. Bonardo

    Specifically, 2007 La Posta Bonarda “Estela Armando Vineyard”, Mendoza, Argentina.
    Wonderfully evocative nose of dark berries, cherry & oak. Notes of blackberry, cherry, chocolate, earth, eucalyptus, and faint blueberry. Tannins have lightened up dramatically. Drink now or within the next year.

  45. Delaney Vineyards 2010 varietal “Cynthiana.” Only known planting of Cynthiana grape is in Grapevine, Texas, USA. A bit light but a very pleasant bouquet. Soft finish, nice mouth. Enjoyed with Lebanese food.

  46. Zilavka. Brought home a small bottle from recent trip to Bosnis-Herzegovina, where it is grown. A white grape; unfortunately, it was slightly oxidized.

  47. Blatina: red grape from Bosnia-Herzegovina. Brought home from recent trip there. Very nice, similar to Croatia’s plavac mali.

  48. With spouse and friends we had three wines:
    1)a 2007 kavaklidere selection from Anatolia, Turkey with grape varieties:
    Oküzgözu and Bogaskere
    2) a 2009 Vin de Table de France (Anjou) P’tite Gaterie with grape varieties:
    Gamay,Grolleau Noir and Pineau d’Aunis
    3)a 2007 Satrepezo ice wine from Georgie,Telavi wine cellar with grape variety:

  49. Well, I’m not adding anything that hasn’t already been listed, but I enjoyed it anyway. Had a Glop Priorat 08 by Mayol Viticultors in Spain. The blend includes Grenache, Cabernet, Syrah, and Carignan.

  50. Edelweiss – a midwestern grape variety. We had the 2009 Edelweiss from Jasper Winery in Iowa.

  51. Cheers to all !

    Someone who knows my interest in grape varieties, just returned from a New York Finger Lakes business trip and dropped off a few wines made primarily with frost hardy hybrids. While mostly not vinifera, they are respectable examples of quality wine making from a challenging climate.
    A New York state wine (Hunt Country) with a blend of four hybrids (three reds & a white):
    Corot Noir,
    Seyval Blanc.

    A second Red blend which included: (a little overlap, but one additional hybrid).
    Corot Noir,
    Cabernet Franc.

    And, a dessert wine featuring the white hybrid grape:
    Valvin Muscat.

    I chased those wines with a small glass of the fortified Pineau des Charentes, which is made from:
    Folle Blanche, and
    Ugni Blanc.
    There are other potentially rare varietals in this type of wine, but I have not been able to get a better break down of the constituents of my bottles than the three named above. That’s a shame, since I’d be really pleased if I could add Merlot blanc, Jurançon blanc, Meslier Saint-François, and Montils to my wine centuries list.

  52. Verdelho, tasted by wine author and blogger Richard Leahy and Aimosaur a k a wineosaurus

  53. The two big petits from Virginia: petit manseng and petit verdot, both from Veritas Vineyards. The petit verdot 2010 got them listed in Wine Business Monthlly’s top 10 hot small brands for 2012. Petit manseng was blended in their Star White label, 2010. Juicy, fruity but firm acid and some RS

  54. We had a nice dinner with friends, so here are all the grapes I was able to identify after some research (there will be duplications with the grapes already listed):
    Cabernet Franc
    Cabernet Sauvignon
    Pinot Noir

  55. I posted early on in the wee hours, but do not seem to be able to get back to most of the comments before the last several. Anyway, I have a few more from tonight not currently in the running list, so some might help. A Malbec, a Primitivo (blended w Cab Sauv), and most notably an uncommon Piemontese grape that is a new one for me: Ruchè. That one was 100% varietal in the 2010 Montalbera Ruchè di Castagnole Monferrato L’Accento.

  56. We had a big birthday party scheduled today (6/9), so we made it an opportunity to taste a broad selection of wine varietals. In addition to the normal stuff, we had the following:

    Touriga Nacional: Portugese red grape from the Dão; dark and full bodied.

    Nerello Mascalese: Sicilian red grape; it was made into a dark colored, medium bodied Rosato.

    Catarratto: Sicialian white grape; light-to-medium bodied white with citrus aromas.

    Albarino: Spain’s premier white wine varietal; this one was from the Yakima Vally, WA.

    Tempranillo: Spain’s premier red wine varietal; this one was from the Yakima Vally, WA.

  57. Passerina – 2008 Domodimonti Déjà V from Offida, Le Marche, Italy. Quite tasty and refreshing; it should be more popular than it is.

  58. I’m back. Finished our wine for this evening and I think I’ve got a blend of two grapes that haven’t otherwise been posted. I know that I’m certainly adding them to my personal tally for the Club. The wine is a Salt Spring Vineyards Blattner White (VQA – British Columbia) and the two varietals are Petite Milo and Epicure. Both are cold hardy white varietals that have been bred for cooler maritime climates – as found on the BC coast. More can be found out about the grapes at: http://www.omegavines.com/content/grapevines-canada
    The wine was truly enjoyable – although it’s not going to be easy to find; only 300 cases were made in 2009. I’m not sure about current production. I’ll look forward to trying it again though.

  59. Saro Djablo, Fuedo Di San Maurizio….composed of:

    Barbera, Freisa, Ciliegiolo, Dolcetto, Gamay, Petite Rouge, Fumin, Premetta

    Hammpolicella (I’m a home winemaker), barrel tasting of my own blend….Dolcetto, LaGrein, Corvina Veronese

    Tempranillo, Ripkin Vineyards

    Worked in the Vineyard all morning through mid-afternoon….late afternoon wine tasting at home, off to an early dinner of Sushi at Mikuni, a movie at Olympus Pointe, Snow White and the Hunstman….

    Montepulciano (another barrel taste of my own wine), as I type this up 🙂

  60. Yay! I proudly wore my Mourvedre t-shirt today.

    Touriga Franca, Touriga Nacional, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca (2009 Porca de Murca, Portugal)

    Chardonnay Musque (2008 Vineland Estates, Canada)

  61. Kuentz-Bas, 2009, Alsace
    Blend of Sylvaner, Muscat, Auxerrois, and Chaselas

    Great on a 95 degree Denver day.

  62. While many of the wines I tasted on 6/9, at St Louis Uncorked, were already on the list. Here are a couple more varietals that I didn’t see listed:

    Petite Verdot
    Picpout Blanc

    My favorite wines of the day were: (white) Caymus Conundrum and (red) Don Pascual Reserve Tannat.

  63. Two very nice meetings with friends including Century Club members Dennis Sulivan and Parks Redwine and a wind down tasting with my wife, son Tom III ( soon to hit 100 grapes and join our group) and his friend Kacee produced the following grapes. Cheers to all. Tom
    Gros Manseng
    Petit Manseng

  64. I spelled Century Club member Dennis Sullivan’s name incorrectly in my posting. Sorry Dennis – it must be TCA in my brain from last night. Tom

  65. Tibouron grape – 2009 clos cibonne cofes de provence rose
    Very interesting oxidized wine done in old foudres where a thin layer of yesat developed.

  66. Tom Reagan – Cheers to you and Parks! I miss tasting with y’all in Atlanta. Some memorable times when Steve DelGenio would bring me to your events!

  67. With many friends and many wines last night we tasted a 2006 Torres Cordillera from Chile that was a blend of Merlot, Shiraz and Carinena. Very nice wine with great friends lifting our glasses up to The Wine Century Club which my date ‘Don’ and I are proud members.
    Salud to you Steve and your family!

  68. With all of the problems that Greece is experiencing it was
    great to enjoy a wine that they had sent over here.

    A blend of rhoditis, fileri and chardonnay it was fruity
    friendly and fun. from Anastasi Estates in Messinia,
    we will enjoy some more to support the Greek economy.

  69. We tried a Great Big Red from Catalonia. Clos Mont-Blanc Xipella 2009, it is a blend of Grenache, Monastrell, Samso and Syrah. It is really hard to go wrong with any Spanish Wine with Grenache and Monastrell. The real unique wine is Samso, which is the used a lot in Spain as a blend with Grenache. We had it with a marinated flank steak we BBQed with hickory chips and a nice flavour. This wine is a deep red with mineral overtones but gentle tannins. It was a real pleasure to drink.

  70. A bit late posting this – who knew Turkish wines could be so much fun!

    Bekilli Red is a combination of Calkarasi and Bogazkere grapes – light, easy drinking and somewhat reminiscent of Chianti. Really affordable too.

    Here’s to your health!


  71. Steve and co.,

    Long time no see. Glad you’re still at it. This 7th dinner came at the right time as my brother was visiting and offered the opportunity to open a couple of interesting/decent wines. Nothing earth-shatteringly obscure, but we did enjoy the Millbrook Tocai Fruilano from here in New York State, a (surprisingly?) full-bodied white that speaks so well to the Hudson Valley’s ongoing potential. We also had a Masi Amarone 1997, which I believe includes Corvina, Molinara, and Rondinella. Upon first opening, was slightly worried it might have been kept a tad too long – wasn’t sure it was meant to emit THAT raisiny a smell – but it opened up magnificently. You would really not have known it was 15% it was so smooth.

    In addition, the weekend saw a Sauvignon Blanc and a magnificent St-Joseph 2008 from Villard (Syrah). YOu never know if people will forget to have the obvious grapes.


  72. Cerasuolo in 2011 Cirelli; Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo also
    Touriga Nacional in 2011 Rose from Arnot-Roberts, Luchsinger Vineyard; Clear Lake, California

  73. I tasted the Herdade do Esporao Verdelho 2011 from Portugal (Alentajo) with a friend. We both liked it a good deal. A New World style approach yielded a wine with delicate citrus and orange blossom bouquet, a bright citrus mid-palate with mango notes, broad and firm acidity, and hints of a complex nuttiness that made this grape a favorite in Madeira for fortified wines.

    Verdelho is similar to Verdejo in its bright citrus and high acidity but has a more complex texture, and is not as thin and high acid as Albarino. It makes serious wines in Australia, and based on this experience I’d like to see more of it; it should do well in Virginia, Texas, Colorado and other sunny states.

  74. We shared a bottle of Calona Vineyards “Sovereign Opal” wine. A variety from Kelowna, British Columbia. A very light white with hints of tropical fruit and flowers, light, crisp acidity and smooth finish. Went great with watermelon, mozzarella, and basil skewers. A wine that is almost colorless, lighter than any other I have tried.

  75. Are primitivo and zinfandel considered separate grapes for the purpose of the wine century club?

  76. Steve, the wines we had are still listed, but our comments are no longer included? How did they get dropped? Steve, hope you stay active after the change of leadership! Mark and Diane

  77. I had a lovely blend of Nerello Mascalese and Nero d’Avola (one of my favorite grapes; I’m surprised it’s not up yet!) from Santa Marina Salina of the Aeolian Islands near Sicily. It was very tight at first but opened up nicely to reveal the earthy and dark fruit flavors that I’ve come to love from Southern Italian wines. Cent’anni!

  78. On the day we we had a new grape for us, an interesting and enjoyable Romanian red, whose principal grape was Feteasca Neagra, blended with some Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot.

  79. Just had an awsome 2004 Margaux. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and possibly 5% Petit Verdot blend make tis a truly amazing wine.

  80. Bruñal 2005 is the wine, of the same name grape “Bruñal”.
    It is an almost extinct grape from spanish region “Arribes del Duero”, in Salamanca province (Castille-Leon), that grow in the Arribes Natural Park near Duero river mountains and waterfalls and in the border between Spain and Portugal.
