Another Wednesday Wine Committee in the books. Great hosting by @Bill Makens . 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine all served blind.

So much mango and guava here. Honeyed and ripe, but that fruit just dominates. Orange marmalade, clementine cake, and lychee-like. I couldn’t put this in Sauternes, so I settled on Cali’s Dolce dessert wine.

Azul y Garanza

Garnacha Rose 2018

Very light aromas... red fruits and a little banana. Smooth, round body up front, with a burst of tart cherries as the acid comes through. Very drinkable and food friendly! — 13 days ago

BCN GIN

Prior Barcelona Dry Gin

Priorat. Perfumed essences of rosemary and thyme and fennel and pine 🌲 on the nose. More on the palate as well as restrained citrus. Really interesting and delicious.

Try this cocktail:

2oz BCN Gin
1/4oz Priorat red wine
Fever Tree Tonic
Serve in ice with lemon 🍋 peel garnish

Barranco Oscuro

V de Valenzuela Vigiriega

A round, gorgeous, rich white with all the decadence if Spain. This is a royal wine. Tastes of honeysuckle, candied lemon, early peaches, and smells like gardenias. This is the wine of the Alhambra, of all the good things of Spain. — 15 days ago
