Customer Reviews - thomas vogelbacher

thomas vogelbacher
German and thus loves his German Rieslings in every style. Also in love with everything French and Austrian. Has a complicated relationship with CA-wine. Admits that red wines can be great, whites are too expensive for the quality. Prefers mineral and elegant wines over fruit-bombs. Over all, preferred US wine region Oregon.

2007 Ridge Vineyards "Pagani Ranch" Sonoma Zinfandel (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-19-2010

had it yesterday along with 4 other Ridge Zins. Liked it the least due to high alcohol. If I remember correctly, ABV was around 15%. Finish was a bit too sweet. Other than that, a still decent red from my favorite CA-producer Ridge.

Had it yesterday at a tasting. Good balance, clean fruit, not overwhelming and not too powerful. A typical Ridge Zin. Good quality for a relatively decent price.

2008 Blason Friulano (out of stock)

K and L should check out other producers in Friuli. Blason is not considered to be one of the best there. I thought the wine was pretty mediocre and unremarkable. On the other hand, there aren`t many Friulanos for 10 USD, so it might be a decent first Friulano for those who are not familiar with them.

OMG, so super refreshing and spritzy. Love it, great with Asian food or just by its own. A steal at that price.

served it for women who usually do not like white wine. They loved it for being not complicated, deep and that is what I expect from a wine at a party. Alvarinhos are not critics` darling, but soo tasty and refreshing, yummy

pleasant Tuesday-night red table wine. Had it with Lamb and it was just a decent tasty wine without being sensational. Bravo for 12 bucks.

really liked its minerality, very food-friendly. Cork unfortunately not easy to remove and sharp decline (oxidation?) after 2 days in fridge. First day though was brilliant.

Sorry, I do not get California Chardonnay. At most, it is pleasant, if a bit tart. Drinking pleasure was higher with 7 USD-Bernier. I was wondering, what do you pair it with? For 37 bucks, I rather enjoy 2 bottles of Chablis or Kumeu from NZL.
