Monthly WTF group recap. Theme this month was “bring something special”. Normally we taste all of the wines blind, but we decided to do a relaxed night with amazing wines at a great restaurant. Spectacular evening!

Notes are consistent with when I had this back in May. Candied and ripe showing graham cracker slathered in blackberry jam accompanied by cherry liqueur. Typical zin sweetness with only a hint of age to it. Fun and enjoyable Napa example. Thanks

Monthly wine group met up and had an Italian wine night at one of the local Italian BYOB spots. Really fantastic Italian wines were brought, as well as some random bottles that were outside the theme (but worthy of opening regardless of theme).

Finishing off dinner with a couple dessert wines. It’s no secret that I love Jessup...their zin is delicious (one of my favorite wines from them) and for them to do a zin-port is just right up my alley. So jammy (blueberries, blackberry pie) and unabashed (vanilla, creme brûlée).
