Rougette Red Wine 2014

9.1

We love Jessup at our house. To me, Jessup is one of those wineries that does every varietal well, and they do a ton of varietals. Zin may be the best in the valley, their cabs and merlot are solid & their top tier cab blend and Merlot blend and stellar. This Rougette wine is brand new, so I had to try.

100% Grenache. The color is fairly dark as I believe they let the Grenache rest on petit Verdot skins for a time. This wine looks, smells and initially mimics a Russian River Valley Pinot. Very ruby red with a thin colored core. Aromatics of red gummy bears, strawberry O candies, rhubarb, herbal funk. After about 30mins, a candied almond note came out. Very crisp acidity at the front palate. Finish has cedar alongside cola and black cherry. On day 2, this smoothed out quite a bit and had more of those fleshy fruit skin notes and the acidity wasn't as prevalent.

A nice play on Grenache but this needs time. A Grenache for RRV Pinot lovers!

Port Napa Valley Zinfandel 2008

9.2

Monthly WTF group recap. Theme this month was “bring something special”. Normally we taste all of the wines blind, but we decided to do a relaxed night with amazing wines at a great restaurant. Spectacular evening!

Notes are consistent with when I had this back in May. Candied and ripe showing graham cracker slathered in blackberry jam accompanied by cherry liqueur. Typical zin sweetness with only a hint of age to it. Fun and enjoyable Napa example. Thanks

Yolo County Petite Sirah

Tannic, bold, great with chocolate, big taste and great with Brie and bread. Has a cherry/ blackberry taste that sneaks up on the taster right before the finish. This wine is full of surprises. Give it time in your mouth. — 6 years ago

Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Not as good as the O vineyard, but still solid. Cranberry and baking spices. Very drinkable now, but would improve with time. #jessupcellars — 7 years ago
