I dropped off the Martinelli mailing list about 5 years ago because it was getting so expensive.

    My last order fav's are the Juvenile, the White Coat, Rattlesnake Ridge (Petite and Zin), and the Dragon. Even the Juvenile benefits from an hour in the decanter.

    No I didn't, but I just cleaned up the inbox a bit so I now have some space.

    I am also a fan of Turley. It is their zin that made me realize I still like zinfandel. I had given it up for years.

    You'll have to wait for Bedrock and Carlisle. They have waiting lists.

    Sorry, its actually Cypher, Cypher is teh new winery of Christian Teutje teh four vines guy, great big Zins and tempanillos. Bedrock and Carlisle are the probably the two prominant producers of $20-$40 wines from old zin vineyards. The lists are closed though so it might take a year or two to get on, it took me 4 years for Carlisle and 3 years for Bedrock, i know Karring is still patiently waiting for both, he is on like 1.2 million other lists though so he is doing OK

    I love it how your mailbox is full too. I might be interested in the KBs.

    Waiting list don't bother me, waited about 18 months for Turley. Signed up for Bedrock and Carlisle. Liked Carlisle's drink chart for their wines drinking windows.

    Hendry is similar to Turley, and their Primitivo is really nice.
