Tasting Fees: No Charge

We stumbled across Alderbook and were surprised to see the parking lot full of cars as the places we came from were empty. Low and behold a wine event for members was on. We managed to get in for a $10 fee, which allowed us to taste the wines and have some nibbles. The tasting room caters to bigger crowds and has a lot of retail goods available. The sort of tasting room you see in Napa. Nice place. It was pretty busy the day we were there and we had a fun time drinking the wine and meeting the locals. I would expect the place to be usually quiet in December. We thought the wines were average... Nothing special

2004 Wind Machine Zinfandel ($34)Rating: B-C

Definitely the best wine at the winery. A very nice, well structured Zin. Good fruit with a nice finish.
2005 Old Vine Zinfandel ($19)Rating: B

Getting better (could not get much worse!!). Smooth Zin. Not too spicy for an Old Vine Zin. Good price
2004 Carignane ($19)Rating: A-B

The tasting notes say: "Pronounced KarenYawn, Full of briar and black fruit with wonderful spice". We would have stopped at the Yawn. Boring wine. Flat
2004 Terlato Vineyards Syrah ($35)Rating: A-B

Oh dear. Smells like old socks. "Do we have to taste this?". Not very nice wine. Stay with the Zinfandels

Oh, oh. Butter. "The reason why we do not drink Chardonnay"
