Côtes du Rhône Red Rhône Blend 2015

Spontaneous pull for dinner, needing something to hold up to rigatoni with sweet and spicy Italian sausage in homemade red sauce and a hit of medium dry Madeira (Broadbent), this is working just fine. 👍

Nose of a tannic raspberry, fresh cherry, some alcohol lingers and should eventually blow off.

Palate has generous raspberry, spiced/ripe cherry, green pepper, cocoa powder, cedar box and small amount of forest floor.

Great QPR with the price of admission at only $13.50. Good wine isn't always expensive.

Well, no, except for the Alcohol Board in Boston and generally federal law. But aside from that, I should look into it. :)

Hospices de Beaune Cuvée Charlotte-Dumay Corton Grand Cru Pinot Noir 1990

Absolutely brilliant wine. Have NO IDEA what the 9.1 pro ratings were drinking, because this is awesome. Beautiful fruit initially, giving way to complex earthy components as it opened up. Easily one of thr best red burgundies I’ve had in a long time. Brilliant. — 10 days ago

La Paulée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Tart cherry lingers in the nose.

A touch of citrus, mingling with blueberry applesauce pie, jolly rancher blue, goose berry.
Light tannins with a strong, acidic backbone, much like a candidate running for an office..

Spécial Club Brut Grand Cru Champagne Pinot Noir Rosé 2012

We are testing this between two glasses! I prefer the Jamesse by far (although the shape is there on this glass....I am not convinced it is truly Crystal).

As for this Bubbly..I have waited months for its arrivaI and I am so thrilled!! This is a glass of total refinement..tangerine..cotton candy..minerals...red berries..Brioche...just super delicious!! I was able to acquire two bottles of this...will let the next one age several years!!

I am accompanying this with Vivaldi...(my Son's nickname while he was in QC Youth Symphony)

WNH event number 3...new world Pinot. Such a treat to experience the many different variations of Pinot!

Another surprise of the night for me. I’ve only had their Syrahs before. Lots of crushed potpourri and underripe red fruit on the nose with a darker palate of violets, black cherry and plum. I need to get some of these. Awesome bottle,

WNH event number 3...new world Pinot. Such a treat to experience the many different variations of Pinot!

Large and in charge! Big fruit medley of red and black fruit on the nose, with some cedar, and roasted black cherries. Thought this would be flabbier on the palate but the acidity was great. Thanks
