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

Only the second Amarone I’ve had that has been truly fantastic. This was raisiny but not overly stewed and muddled. It was more dusty and fig based. Blackberry compote, Mexican vanilla, dark chocolate and candied dark fruits on the nose. Rich and decadent with graham cracker, black cherry liqueur and a small spice note toward the back of the palate. Lots of guesses of CdP and Sonoma zin. I went back and forth between zin and mid 2000s Aussie Cab.

2005. Runner up in recent Amarone taste off and my favorite in the bunch. Excellent, dark and brooding without much of the overripe raisin tastes that I find challenging with these wines.

I am sorry, but Cesari Amarone 2005 does not worth its money. It should be twice cheaper. Yes it is absolutely balanced, but so deeply deep underground that does not want neither to show it's secrets when you drink it without food, nor to strengthen the taste of the food you eat with it.

This is incredible. Concentrated but elegant, bright fruit, purple flowers, nutmeg, fig, leather, dark chocolate.
