Can’t remember if this is my second or third bottle of this over the last few years but it never disappoints. Nose isn’t shy with the musky, earthy, lychee nut and sweet pear scents. Sweet fruit cocktail on the first hit, but then some nice minerality and acids enter on the off dry finish. Amazing for $15. — 7 days ago
January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.
Delicious and shocked it was gewürztraminer. It was sweet/botrytis like, but not overly so. I didn’t pick up lychee or honeyed pear that I usually do with this grape. Touch of petrol. My guess was Alsace Pinot Gris in vindage tardives style. At least I got the country and region. — 19 days ago
