Monthly WTF wine group meet up. No true theme this month. Some wines tasted blind.
Tasted blind. Pretty bouquet of potpourri, black cherry, herbs, sweet tar, and ripe fresh squeezed blackberries. Very soft and plush on the palate...sweet red and black fruit to the core with violet and dark chocolate. Excellent! I called this merlot. My WOTN. — 9 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.
I called this WA state Syrah. It was between that and northern Rhône...the fruit here was more prevalent and while the aromatics matched with both options, the funky, iron, stewed meat notes didn’t translate to the palate. Smoky and dark fruited. Drinking a little thin. I’d drink up if you have them. — 9 days ago
Full nose of blackberry and black currant with minty notes and sage. Plums, honeycomb, raspberry reduction and fir. Blueberry and blackberry on the palate with black currant and black olive both taste and texturally as it unfolds into cedar, dense chocolate truffle, and Turkish coffee. #SevenHills #CielduCheval #Washington #washingtonstate #washingtonwines #bordeauxblends #cabblends #SevenHillsWinery — 5 days ago

Columbia Gorge. Light to moderate extracted purple-red, very good clarity. Layers of aromas when first opened: barrel smoke, raspberry, blackberry, cranberry. Blueberry, raspberry and blackberry flavors, some seed tannin and licorice on finish. Really lovely stuff, could even age it a year or two — 18 days ago
