It is Friday night and during this time of being shut in our home a group of us had a Zoom chat to try and help in keep some assemblance of normalcy with socialization through Zoom chat. During our gathering I opened the 2016 Pirouette Long Shadows Vintners Bordeaux Blend. A blend of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec. A wine from Walla Walla, Washington produced by renowned winemaker Philippe Melka. A beautifully blended wine that will stand the test of time and only get better.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, red currant, vanilla, baking spice, cigar box and rich soil.

On the palate ther is black cherry, blackberry, black currant, red currant, green bell pepper, creamy chocolate, graphite and crushed rock.

This wine is full bodied with a smooth creamy mouthfeel, medium + acidity and medium + smooth rounded tannins that lead into a long black fruit finish. What a wonderful wine that all would enjoy. I just wish on our video chat I would have been able to share this with my friends. Maybe some day when we come through this. Please everyone stay healthy and safe. We will come through this. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷🍷

The 2016 ‘Piroette’ Red Wine is a stunning new release by superstar winemaker Phillipe Melka. A blend of primarily Cabernet Sauvignon (68%) with smaller portions Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc and Malbec, the wine was aged for 22 months in 75% new French oak prior to bottling. Showing off its inky core this opens with a bouquet of green bell pepper, mocha, tar and anise that all come together in the glass. The silky texture creates gorgeous appeal, delivering blackberry cobbler, espresso bean and shades of blueberry pie with lovely herbal undertones. Highly structured, with soft tannins, this stunning effort will cellar well for decades. Drink 2020-2038- 95

Rich, velvety full body cab dominated blend. Lush black and blue fruits, cocoa, mint, and violet. Perfect for the cold winter day.
