Wednesday Wine Committee from this past week. A fantastic hosting by @joe leatherwood . 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual.

The most difficult wine of the day to guess. It was like a super bright Alsatian Riesling mixed with Chablis. Crazy light colored in the glass. Very tart in all aspects. Lemon-lime, limestone, high minerality, and a Fruit Loop like note too (kudos to Weston for picking that up). Steely and sharp on the palate with more citrus and stone fruits, lemon oil and crushed wet rocks. Complex and unique. I called this Chablis.

Great juice which will only benefit by laying down for another year or two. Tropical fruits with honeydew notes.

Very pale, translucent. yellow. Nose-lime, stone and apple. Palate apple tending toward pear and something spicy. Hallmarks are really the acidity and minerals. Precise, focused and balanced. Long finish. Really terrific wine that is still very young. Would not have called the origin. 4*
