    I can't imagine blend like this.

    Did anyone else get the e-mail from JI with the Wine of the Week?

    Chardonnay
    2008 Sonoma Coast

    $26.97
    promo code "flowers"
    regularly priced $39.99

    Tasting Notes
    Showing balanced depth and complexity, light straw to golden color. White peach and lime citrus aromas. A clean wine with lean acidity refreshes the palate. Stone minerals and luscious melon equally contend for attention in this mouth filling, delicious wine. Showing very well now and will continue to gain complexity for
    1 - 3 years.
    Winemaking
    Fruit was rigorously hand sorted and gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was settled off heavy lees and put to barrel for fermentation. Temperatures were in the 65-72 degree range followed by stirring of light lees for 4 months in barrel. Mostly native yeast and malo-lactic (ML) fermentations with only a few lots fermented using cultured burgundy isolates.

    Is this serious? If so, no. Sounds delicious, though, if not a bit out of my price range.

    Me either, I like red personally though the "luscious melon" part has me interested. I prefer at least 2 melons myself though.

    Or share email addresses, which is disturbing.

    We don't share email addresses or sell wine. The are an advertiser and a supporter of the site.

    BTW: That's a great price for Flowers Chard a world class Sonoma wine.

    EDIT: My settings reverted back to everything being checked...

    Everyone should check theirs as well...

    Regardless, I hope I don't receive emails from advertisers in the future...

    I understand that. The question is how did they get addresses of JI members?

    Just cracked open the second to last bottle of this...what I can only describe as Nectar of the Gods. Bought it whilst visiting my old college roommate on the Cote'd Azur--just up the block from where Raoul vacations in the summer.

    Oldest daughtpne coming home from Boston for the weekend and making her some homemade pesto and about 10 quarts of chicken soup to bring back.

    Good to have her home, if but just for a few days.
