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 was one of the only people to guess this as Cali Chardonnay, though I thought it was Sonoma. Very light and pale in color. Little acid. Touch of lemon tart and cashew on the nose with a fairly round mid palate. Drink these soon.

This afternoon/evening was our first of two baby showers. Not only were we surrounded by friends & family, but we were also surrounded by some good wine & other drinks.

This selection has proven to be a consistent, dependable crowd-pleaser. Refreshing, balanced, and crisp.
