My first foray into Mexican wine - it was more sauv like than I expected Ted, round mouth feel, simple finish, soft fruit — 10 days ago


Vino Tinto Tempranillo Blend 2019

Really well balanced red blend from Baja California. Ripe fruit balanced well with acidity. Improved with time, so could use a solid decant. Great with pizza. — a month ago

Cru Garage Sauvignon Blanc 2006

How a couple of these bottles landed in my cellar is a story best saved for another day. Needless to say, this is sixteen year old Sauv Blanc from Baja California by a renowned producer in the region.

The wine has a medium to deep yellow tone with floral and mature pineapple scents. The pallet is two dimensional: starts round with white tea flavors then turns to waxy buttery and vanilla flavors.
Light, low alcohol; the finish is slightly acidic and citrus but substancial.

Turned into an interesting wine where I wasn’t expecting much to be honest. My brain is baffled as parts of the wine taste a lot like a young heavily oaked Cali Chard. Must pair the remaining bottle; thinking a creamy and slightly spicy chile poblano soup. Hopefully that’ll clear up my baffling…

Syrah 2013

Light fruit and acidic. On its own, had a nice funk to it. But with Mexican food the combo of the wine made the food flavors pop. Very enjoyable. — a month ago
